Learning… we all learn or we do not. We all have a choice to expand our natural capabilities by learning. By learning you are gaining wisdom and knowledge especially from your life experiences. Applying yourself and opening your mind to something bigger than what you already do know is creating new ideas, new skills and much, much more in your life. The result of not being closed-minded; you are opening yourself up to a whole new perspective, a whole new world…a journey that only you will experience. Through learning we are growing, developing and are more self-aware.
Why not try to strive to be more open-minded? Learning can be a forever task, if we allow it to be. Listen to what others around you have to say and question it to help you think extensively. Learn from other people’s success, even their mistakes (as well as your own). Do research on topics you are curious about. Read books. Study Nature. Visit historical sites. Read quotes and poems from scientists/philosophers/psychologists/etc…(especially older ones). Look into history; focus on the facts, figures, experiments correlated to the data to see where it unfolds and plays in your life. It can be a very enjoyable journey and it can also have its surprising times; but within those times will bring you to a whole new you… a Truthful you. You cannot believe everything you read, see and hear, especially in today’s mass media and propaganda such as the television, radio, Internet and other forms of commutative technology or the schooling education systems. When questioning everything, you broaden your mind and challenge yourself which is also teaching you how to learn and bring you on a whole other level of—a Higher Consciousness.
There is a vast Universe out there…. Become knowledgeable, wise and truthful so you can pass it on to others, especially the younger generations who need the guidance. We need to keep the good values and morals going so they do not get lost over time. Compassion, love, trust, honesty, patience, peace… Let’s all come together to help one another learn and live and be the (light) beings we aRe ALL meant to BE. Trust in your heart and your intuition for Truth. By this I mean, when you learn information, FEEL it and whatever comes to your mind first is likely to be what is “right” for you. Be TRUTHFUL and share your Truth with the world…so we can all be on the same collective consciousness to help us make informed choices for our own lives which benefits the people around us as well. Together let’s learn to overcome the fear, hate, anger and the ignorance… and become one and live in harmony.
Keep in mind…sometimes we need to unlearn all that we have already learned. With unlearning, we are creating more space for new knowledge that will serve us in healthier ways … May you have a very happy LIFE-LONG Learning (and UN-learning) journey!!!
