Rationality

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.

Speculation

Gambling – a moment where people make irrational choices on the basis of rational experience.Whether it is a casino or real life,humans take risks.I think this is what makes us different from other animals.I don’t think we are rational beings.We really are irrational.And that has allowed us to become intelligent.Other species don’t take risks unless they think they are going to win,or when their life is already on the line,or they are going to lose something or someone precious to them.We humans take risks even when the odds are against us,even though we are perfectly safe in our cocoon and even though the things we love are safe.I wonder now,which is more smarter and braver,making a rational choice or an irrational one? What do you think? Which is the best way to go?

Flow

Plan everything.But don’t freak out when things don’t go according to your plan.Just get things done.Worry consumes too much energy and time.Both of which are limited for us.And you know what’s funny? Things don’t get done even if you plan every last detail to the point.It just gets done some or the other way if you persevere.That means,EVERYTHING GETS DONE,BUT NOT EXACTLY THE WAY YOU PLAN.Don’t sweat.Just do what you gotta do.Inspiration,motivation,satisfaction – all these things get spurred by action only.A potato doesn’t do anything.It just sits there.Hence it has got no ambition.No life.(I don’t mean to hurt your feelings potato! I love you!)

This is not a formula for success.It is a formula to face failure.You can only succeed if you accept failure as a part of your life.If you get scared of losing you footing,then how are you gonna climb up forever? Acceptance makes you stronger.Avoidance just brings conflict of identity.It makes you wonder who you really are because you never step out in the game and assess yourself.And if you don’t evaluate yourself,then how you’re going to grow? Isn’t that what we humans,or rather every living being has done since the beginning of time?

 

Excess

Ever seen an animal feasting? It will consume food till its belly is full and then walk away leaving the rest to the other animals.(It could go differently if they either buy a refrigerator or understand the concept of frozen food).

Ever seen a human feasting? It will consume food till its belly reach the rupture point and then walk away with packed leftovers.(It could go differently if either humans try to value the concept of moderation or share with those suffering from malnutrition and starvation).
