Freedom to Think!
We are talking about freedom here. So let's talk about a form of freedom which most of us may think they have, but may not have; the freedom to think.
I am not talking about restrictions imposed by other people directly on to how and what will you be thinking in your mind. I am talking about restrictions that we ourselves as individuals impose on ourselves, indirectly influenced by others around us, something I could call social norms.
Do you sometimes restrict your thoughts from certain things simply because you believe, taught by others around you, that those thoughts are too outrageous, foolish or wasteful to explore? Do you restraint yourself? I think we all do.
Why is this important? I think it is more important than we may think, and we may realize this more and more as humans continue to evolve. A thought is what makes every human be who they are and evolve into more than they are at any given moment in time. A thought is a key to evolution. However, if a thought stands still confined in a cage of norms and commonalities of what we already know, it cannot make us evolve. Instead, it makes us run in circles (literary, figuratively, it doesn't matter - you are running in circles).
But when you release it... everything you can imagine becomes possible, in your mind. You start searching for ways to experience your own imagination in new and fuller ways like a scientist who has an abstract idea and struggles to explain it to his mates. Sooner or later you will find an appropriate way to express it and hence make others experience it too, making the experience for them and yourself seem more and more real, until it leads to knowledge which leads to realization of this previously unreal "imagination" into reality.
It's that important. A free thought is the founding signal of the process of converting pure abstractness, pure magic and imagination into reality. Everything is possible.
What do you think? How free are your thoughts?
