About Finding the Truth, Learning to Unlearn and Thinking
Why does a man spend his entire life painting, while another hates it? Why does a man devote his life to climbing Everest while the other doesn’t dare to leave his home? Why does one seek to conquer the world while the other seeks to conquer himself? Why does the one seek to know everything about the world but the other is content with what the world tells him?
The answer to truth is not simple. Truth is fundamentally different for everybody.
Truth is the ultimate destination. It is available to every man as a birthright but very few exercise it.
Your truth is different than my truth, your father’s truth, or anyone else’s truth. Only you know your truth. The ultimate aim of life is finding that truth and going after it.
Ideas I discovered this week:
The egg: This is one of the most thought-provoking stories I’ve ever read. Read this story and think for a while.
Learning to unlearn: Unlearning is a new meta-skill. Most people are focused on learning new things but completely forget the unlearning part. Unlearning means making room for the growth of new ideas, skillsets,s, and behaviors.
How to think: Good thinking habits create a good life. Especially in a world where everyone is told to do things a certain way, and act a certain way, thinking is an important skill to learn. It will put you forward in life.
