Irony of cognition
As long as our beliefs are taking us through
We are comfortable
But if our beliefs, blur our vision
We are confounded
We become guarded
And want to protect our opinions
Even if they are erring
In fact we are most hostile
When we are aware deep within
How wrong we actually are !
Rather than allowing ourselves to evolve
We step in our own way of growth
Becoming mental contortionists
Twisting and turning
With the assumptions & notions of truth
Until we find an angle that upholds
Our current views.
Our beliefs can be our strength as much as our weaknesses. In allowing ourselves to accept something new or different to what we are used to or expect, we begin to open up our minds and hearts.
Think about your own beliefs, are there moments where you were challenged by your own beliefs,
Were there times when you feel that some of your own beliefs need a thinkover?
Often we assume we are totally in the know and believe it to be so like a frog in the well.
Yet the truth shows up differently from these illusions we live in, and then we realize how far away from the truth we actually are!
There is always more…
Possibilities in the infinity
So much more to learn
So much more to discover
So much more to explore
So much more to know…
