There have been researches
About whether our mind controls us
Or we control our mind.
However, empirical evidences exist
For both the debates.
Conclusively, none is a fact.
Facts are permanent,
The stable ones
The certain ones.
Perhaps, facts are subjective too.
Subjectivism builds and is a blend of many factors.
If I exemplify this,
Both Freud and Erikson view anxiety in different ways, however both of their theories are widely accepted even today.
But which one holds relevance in which situation, is subjective and situational too.
So Subjectivism can never be a fact.
Facts that you hold in your life are subjective to your experiences, Your learnings.
And you lead each and every day based on them.
I was reading about the filter attenuation theory the other day,
And somehow my thoughts conflicted me,
I was wondering whether enlightenment is actually enlightenment or not.
What we perceive or chose to pay attention to, is barred by our subjective interests and the information that we filter out of all the stimuli and imbibe in ourselves is based on subjectivity too.
Considering the fact that all of us are unique in our own ways
Would you believe too, that this world would be a better place if we attend to issues in this world by keeping this notion in mind?
Considering that our mind controls us,
Can we get conditioned to the need of the society and eventually our mind will make us do the required deed?
Considering that we control our mind,
Can we change the way we attend to things and make this society or just one life better??
This new year,
Is a blank slate
and the world out there needs more humanity and altruism.
However it all begins with the kind of thought and choice that we behold
So can we begin to do our bit in making our lives greater by this means.
Subjectivism would never leave our lives
Because that is, the life.
But it all begins with choosing what we pay attention to.
A deliberate attention,
Can do wonders.
So the gone is gone
And going is going and is yet to come.
For this year
And this life,
is a blank slate,
What picture you draw is in your hands!
