Go beyond what you think
I have found that is extremely important to verify the content of our minds. Don’t just remain attached to your opinion, to your belief, to your tradition, to what others have said; but go beyond that and seek to open your mind to new perspectives through new information. This rigid attachment happens mostly to religious people and to people following politics.
I know from experience because I used to be religious. The scriptures, what people close to me said, what was preached in the Bible and in Church. All of it had stolen my ability to seek different perspectives and expand my mind. But I discovered that nothing is more important than to learn to think for yourself, without bias, without anything occupying room in your mind and misleading you.
The mind is limited by its content. And that is why we must always be learning new things, new information, new science, new philosophies, new life views. Expand your mind’s content to bring freedom to your mind, such is freedom to think for yourself without being attached to anything.
Because what brings stubbornness, anxiety, pride, intolerance of others, is attachment to specific beliefs and viewpoints. Your mind must be free of this in order to understand yourself, others, and life itself. Freedom exists only when the mind is liberated from any attachment, and this liberation then gives you the capacity to open your mind and heart to all.
