Discoveries of Mind

You cannot extinguish fire until or unless you know difference between oil and water

Many of the humans try to help others in different ways. Some are selfish. Some are self centered. We think that selfish people are most dangerous. In reality, most dangerous impact is created by ignorant helpers!!!!!

We cannot understand how the other persons are thinking. But still we make predictions and decide what is good for them. We impose our ideas on others. We generalize things. This is the root cause of all problems, atleast in countries like India where, we are being tought to listen to other people (example: parents, teachers, husband, elders and so on….) There is default hierarchy of cognition in the society which clashes with the individualistic free will.

Then what could be the solution? Cant we help others? Definitely yes. We can… But for that, we need to listen to them, respect their thoughts and do a favour which is being asked by them. The only difference is freedom. In families, agreement can be made rather than compromise. Compromise leaves both the parties with dissatisfaction where as agreement gives mutual benifits. 

Giving respect to thought is giving respect to a person in most dignified way….
