One of my central principles of my life is that no one knows enough to be a pessimist about anything. And that each and every one of us, when we close our minds to whats possible to us or whats possible for humanity, we close off the genius that resides and leaves in each and everyone of us.
having an open mind doesn’t necessarily mean finding fault with all the things that has been taught by others, it means opening your self up to the potentiality and possibility that anything and everything is possible.
So having a mind that is open to everything and attached to nothing really means finding within our selves ability to get lid of a trait that i find so common in the contemporary world.
do you know that most people i meet spend there life looking for occasions to be offended! they are actually out there hopping that they can find some reasons to be offended. and there is no shortage of reasons. they are out everywhere. like the way people dress, things that some people say, what they hear from the news, some one using the language that they don’t like and many more.
But the mind that is open to everything and attached to nothing is the mind that says that i am never looking for anything to be offended by. And whatever any body has to say out their, my response to that i have to say” that’s an interesting point of view. i never considered that before” it took people who had a mind that wasn’t closed to allow us to make the progress that we are making. progress is impossible if you always do things the way you always done things.
