What.. Do you think?

March 30, 2010

Those who assume (often unconsciously) that it is impossible to achieve their life’s desires-and, thus, that it is futile to fight for themselves–usually end up fighting for an ideal or cause instead. They may appear to engage in self-directed activity, but in reality they have accepted alienation from their desires as a way of life.

Yet, one of the great secrets of our miserable, yet potentially marvelous time, is that thinking can be a pleasure. Despite the suffocating effect of the dominant religious and political ideologies, many individuals do learn to think for themselves; and by doing so–by actively, critically thinking for themselves, rather than by passively accepting pre-digested opinions–they reclaim their minds as their own.

This Sunday consider  the rebirth of something which may actually improve your life and our society as a whole.   Celebrate  the revolutionary pleasure of thinking for yourself.
