I am a child of thinking.
I was born with a brain and a heart. But my leading function is my brain.
When I go to sleep and wake, the moment of waking will be the closest I will ever be to being nothing.
I use these waking moments to harness whatever thinking is being processed by me. I listen to my own intuition after I have filled it with inspiring, invigorating, innovative for their times writers and authors.
Yesterday I spoke to my mother in law about religion. Specifically, the ability to challenge what one is learning. No matter what you are learning about, that you don’t take it as gospel. Pardon the pun.
I believe in the theory of knowledge. This means I’m a scholar of learning. I never stop with thinking I know it all and nor do I stop reading with thinking one author has all the answers.
I didn’t get this way by myself. I had many teachers who have influenced and shaped my thinking because I was willing to be open and hear what is being shared.
Because this has worked for me over a long period of time, I continue to be open and am able to receive more and more information about any topic that I wish to find out more about.
I am no different to you and you are not different to me.
We have a particular set of lenses though that if we use these lenses to view the information our perception can be tainted.
When we are willing to say actually that’s my point of view from the past or that’s in my way of really being able to absorb this and it’s acknowledged, then you’re able to receive the information brand newly.
What if you navigated the world around you from within? What would it feel like to wholly and completely trust yourself? How amazing when we realise all that we ever need is within us. All the answers, every answer within?
I am reading Leo Tolstoy who I have been led to with a simple chain of thinking.
From Rene Descartes to Leo Tolstoy. It’s about learning from those who already tested the theories of knowledge at the time.
“To speak of "Tolstoyism," to seek guidance, to inquire about my solution of questions, is a great and gross error. There has not been, nor is there any "teaching" of mine. There exists only the one eternal universal teaching of the Truth, which for me, for us, is especially clearly expressed in the Gospels...I advised this young lady to live not by my conscience, as she wished, but by her own.”
What would it now feel like to live by your own conscience?

Hi my name is Angela. I have loved writing since I was able to hold a pencil in my hand. I soon learnt I had a gift of connecting with my ancestors through writing before my 30th birthday.
