Question everything and only accept those things prove true. How do we learn? There are several different ways that we can infuse our minds and souls with new ideas and knowledge. However, each individual needs to determine the validity of each morsel of information for themselves, regardless of the source that is providing it. Don’t believe anything except after individual investigation and introspection have proven it to be so. Finding what is true for you is vital to living a life that is honest and true to yourself. What beliefs you accept will determine your reality.
Don’t Be a Sheep
Just because a message comes to you from an authority figure, that doesn’t make it true. When we accept these messages from teachers, leaders, parents, politicians or any other figure of authority without questioning and/or investigating we are diminishing ourselves and our own individuality.
That doesn’t mean that all you have been told is untrue, it means that knowledge is a quest for understanding discovered through personal investigation and research. Each idea can be confirmed or disregarded on the merit that you discover it to possess. Each of us owes it to our intelligence to question and research all ideas and theories to establish their truth for us.
Too many people accept ideas automatically from educational programs or religious doctrine. Without investigation and proof of the truth of something, it is just empty words.
Test, Investigate, Prove
Don’t allow other people to cheapen your existence and value to the world, by accepting ideas without properly questioning them first. Without setting out to provide yourself with the proof of the existence of something or the validity of an idea, it should be considered invalid.
The alternative to this is to accept the truth of something blindly and without question. Once you believe that something is true, it will have an effect on you and influence your life. Don’t you owe it to yourself and those you will influence to be as positive about information as you can? We are not designed to question, but it is through questioning that all proof is discovered. Look into your heart, mind, and body for the actual truth of things.
Destiny in Truth
It is our destiny on our journey to choose our own path. That is a path in movement as well as in thought. Each idea that we know is true and valid will affect all things that come into our lives. So think, test, prove and grow in your own way. Listening to all, but believing only those things that are proven true. That is the way of your own individual path.
