Our senses help us to gather information and our reasons help us to find true knowledge.
Superstitions and misconceptions arise when people people accept the information gathered through senses as eternal truth without any reason.They just believe what they see or hear,but don’t reason with it.
A rational animal not using its rational faculty is the biggest flaw there is.It is like buying a product only to find that it is flawed at serving its primary purpose.
Your child is not your product.It is something entirely different.Don’t use your own accomplishments and failures as a standard for it to achieve or surpass.Listen to what they have to say.Listen to what they want to learn.Listen to what they want to become.Listen to them like you would listen to anyone else.They are not something you own.Your child is not obligated to you or your way of life.It carries within it a life force,dreams and skills of its own.
That child has a life not because it wanted to have one,but because you wanted to create a life.That doesn’t imply that you have a right to dominate or influence it.It will just do more damage than good.
You just treat the people the way you want them to treat you.Racists and sexists don’t really want more friends I guess.
I have learned more from my mistakes and that of the others than any other sources of learning and teaching.Doing something the wrong way sometimes sets us on the right way.When we understand what is bad and harmful,we pick out and implement what is good and virtuous.That’s why our evil past and deeds shouldn’t be hidden.They should serve as a reminder of our atrocities and downfalls to teach the future the value of peace and freedom they hold.To teach them greed and divisions will just harm oneself and we should all strive for unity and love.Acceptance is the key not ignorance.Because ignorance of both the good and bad has its own dire consequences.It is only sensible to teach the future generations about our mistakes so that they don’t go through what we have gone through again.Allow them to learn,make their own mistakes,learn again and pass on all the combined knowledge and experience to repeat the cycle.Our failure today will set the path to success tomorrow.
Don’t try over and over with the same method to get an answer out of someone.If they are reluctant then they are just look for another way to be convinced.Don’t try to change them – change yourself – and they will warm up to you.
If you are concerned about what other people would think of what you do before even you start doing it – then just forget about getting started at all.
You learn from every person.No person is ever counterproductive to your cause.You learn to be aware about the world from the great people and you learn to be ignorant to critical matters from the naive people.What you choose in the end changes your life forever.Like a drop of water that sends a ripple far out throughout the lake.
Always ask people where their money comes from because their interests lie there.
There’s a tradeoff between acknowledging new ideas and sharing new ideas.Both cannot exist without each other.Our democracy wouldn’t exist without them.If you can’t be tolerant to other people’s ideas,you cannot share your idea freely.You don’t have to accept everything,just learn to respect everyone’s freedom and opinion.Their experience of life has been very different from yours.They weren’t born with an ideology,they chose it along the way due to the circumstances.If their view has a tendency to harm others,then change their circumstances.Trying to change their belief will only lead to resistance.You have to remove corruption from its roots.Because shorenting a plant will only drive it grow further and further for survival.
People who peek into my phone: I hope you learn good things and grow (including you government surveillance 😉 ).
