Open Mind

There is a balance to be maintained between being absolutely right with a particular matter and remaining open to newly discovered possibilities. What we felt we once adamantly knew to be true will likely change over time.

Use caution in your affirmed beliefs so that these once determined facts might remain open to new considerations. To forever believe one thing can be a trap, decreasing your potential to continue learning.

If you find yourself confronting another thoughts with a close mind as if you were a defense attorney, pause for a moment to reconsider. A displayed passion to be right doesn’t make it so.

A focus to continually develop our base of knowledge and comprehension opens the mind to take in novel or new conditions and circumstances. Are we still learning?

“The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts.” — Bertrand Russell —
