Quote to Ponder

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Great Quote

“A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices…” William James

 

Our thinking is crowded by our past, we do not have free spirit because we are controlled by our emotions and expectation. And we do not have free thinking, unless we remove Bias & Prejudice.

 

Do you agree. If you say, Yes, I say you are Biased, if you say No, I say you are prejudiced. LOL.

 

On serious note. You want to test yourself. Just try and see, how your kids learn. If you could learn and remember just like them, you are free of bias, but if not, and your like me, its time to declutter the mind.

It consumes the attention of its recipients.
