Open your mind

”The eyes are useless when the mind is blind.”

How to master the art of observing life with an open mind? Where others see either black or white, to learn to see the rainbow?

Life is a spectrum of moments, occurring one after the other. Anything can happen. And it’s impossible for us to know what might be hiding behind the corner.

We’re allowed to change – in fact we should; change, and grow. In line with each and everyone of your breaths you are allowed to be. Exactly the one you were meant to be.

Open your mind

Don’t care to be right, care to understand. Don’t expect people to agree with everything you say, expect them to have their own view on things. Don’t impose your beliefs on others. Accept all of life’s perspectives and realities, in peace, without judgment.

”It’s the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.”

– Aristotle

What it means is, you should learn to look at life with a bird’s eye view – there are more to this life than the thoughts in your mind.

There are more to this life than your way of seeing things. There is something to be learned from everyone. Even from the fools.

The most sincere form of respect is to listen to what another person has to say. And if you don’t understand – don’t be afraid to ask questions. The worst distance between two human beings is misunderstanding.

When two people stop communicating with each other, or worse – when they stop listening to each other – that is when the problems start arising. We start to assume things, or we believe we think we know what the other person is trying to say. Instead of asking we assume.

We humans are very good at putting our own expectations on people. Why? Maybe we’re afraid of the answer. Maybe we’re just trying to create a false sense of control. Maybe we’re afraid that we thought we knew someone when we actually have no idea. But remember this, if you do not ask, and try to understand, you will never fully get to know life. And you will never fully get to know yourself or the loved ones around you.

Open your eyes. Open your mind.
