“TRY IT – YOU’LL LIKE IT”

 

Advice about WHAT to think is certain to be met with argument. If a conclusion is drawn it will be because the subject has shifted from WHAT to HOW.

Advice about HOW to think increases the pool of knowledge; it generates questions rather than arguments, discoveries rather than frantic searches for proof.

Those who focus on WHAT to think often rely heavily on the quotes and references of dead scholars who are no longer able to defend their words; words which are often taken out of context.

A book I own has a chapter entitled HOW IT WORKS.

It is not about HOW anything works NOR is it about WHAT to think ; the reader is encouraged only to adopt the biases of the author however allusive their attraction. “TRY IT – YOU’LL LIKE IT” the text implies. (Now what did I do with the Alka Seltzer?)

A Few Basics

During the last couple of physically aggravating weeks I was encouraged and empowered by following these basic bits of advice.

 

1; Question everything or live the life of The Lemming. Mother.

2: Look it up in World Book. Father.

3: Do what you’re supposed to do when you’re supposed to do it (and don’t do what you’re not supposed to). Jim.

4: Trust God and do the Next Thing. Meister Eckhart.

5: Be courageous and ask. Morris.

6: Nobody warned me. The Lemming.
