Challenging Our Assumptions


“Begin challenging your own assumptions. Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won’t come in.”

~Alan Alda.

We all make assumptions. Even though they’re often dangerous, they’re unavoidable because we often don’t have all the information available in making our time-demanded decisions. That is a different matter to the one above.

Clear Windows – Clear Thought

Clearing our thinking is about self-discipline. It’s taking time out to clean our mental windows.

It’s taking some time out from the sun to seek of ourselves in the shade, “What are we believing, and why?”

This sort of internal introspection and enquiry is getting at Alda’s windows and scrubbing off the gunk that clings; that which prevents reasonable and logical vision of things, for we—at source—are our own worst enemies at times.

And this is freedom, is it not? We establish a God-flow again when we’re open to views beyond our clouded, erroneous assumptions that are based on skewed beliefs.

Making time to break away from our self-conceived notions of the world is to our interminable blessing, always.

In comes the God-light to blind-out the darkness!
