Why I practice critical thinking?

monkey thinking

When we blindly adopt a religion, a political system, a literary dogma, we become automatons.”
― Anaïs Nin

You wake up, begin your morning rituals, commute to work, plough through your tasks and eventually retreat to your nesting place. To some this is satisfactory as it provides stability, regulairty and the comfort of a fixed routine. While to others, it is perceived as monotonous, unexcitable and spiritually exhausting. So, what’s the solution? How will you extract yourself from the dogmas of the matrix? Get yourself a daily dose of critical thinking.

Since the moment we began our contact with the external world, we were fuelled by our inquisitive nature. Infants explore their alien surroundings, deciphering the abstract forms they  come across and deliberating how much more they can explore; our innate nature to seek knowledge. Unfortunately, the system that is currently in place puts a cap on our conscious expansion and we conform to the blueprint they set out for us. These restrictions have lead to the numbing of our consciousness and the fear of questioning the ‘norm‘. Robert Anthony quoted that “the opposite of bravery is not cowardice but conformity“, therefore it is not surprising to see why so many choose to comply; the fear of rebellion is a greater risk.

You are an infinite being of consciousness; a vessel of intangible power. 

It is within you to view the world critically, to question the taboo and approach that which is unapproachable. Indoctrinate yourself with love, humility and defiance against repelling forces. Pause from your daily duties and diverge yourself in a question, perhaps you will never find an answer. That question branches out into veins of subquestions and tantalising curiosity; you are unlocking your consciousness.  Begin to network with those who exchange your energy and witness the evolution of your knowledge. Critical thinking gives you the platform to enhance your mind and spirit, it is activating what is already within you and assess the concept of ‘certainty’.
