ARE YOUR THOUGHTS, YOUR OWN?
In the fast paced world with media bombardment from all over; how much of our thoughts are our own creation and how much is offloaded on us, by powers that be is difficult to say. The family / societal system & the all pervasive educational system, adds its own venom of misconception. At the end of the day, a very mechanical, routinised generic thought process evolves and people fall line, while having a feeling that they are not falling a prey to this malaise. This is a mercenary thought process which takes a toll on you, if you get on to your own thought process. You may have to keep proving it with no takers.
Children should not be put to stress. Stress is inherent in the educational system. How home schooling happens? Can all thoughts pertaining to a group be true? Does group dynamics work in today’s age? While there can be endless variants to the combination of issues and the solutions thereof. Very successful and innovative too. That’s needs to be based on your inputs and your analysis and your capability to see it through.
When your thoughts are your own, you have the conviction and the passion to see it through. If thoughts are picked out of the social media bubble / society / ecosystem, you might not accept, but you are ever ready for a failure defence explanation. The defence explanations are as mechanical & routinised as the thoughts themselves. While nothing gets done, both the sides are happy. It is the personification of mediocrity.
Have we been taught to think? Are we at peace with ourselves? Is there a purpose, to which thoughts should align to fulfil? Are the thoughts emanating out of one’s own life experience and being synthesised with knowledge & expertise, to generate thoughts, directed as solutions. Ownership of thoughts is the key to its successful execution. You can own the thoughts if it is created by you. It can be created if you want charter your own way, different from the fiercely competing, free, mainstream thoughts.
YOU CAN ONLY OWN THE THOUGHTS, IF THEY ARE YOUR OWN.
