All the people on the planet live with some prejudices, this is inevitable. Prejudice is formed in the conscious from an early age, and is transmitted from parents, siblings, teachers, and friends. Most prejudices have no effect on the formation of the human person, but some may still have a negative effect and make it impossible to uncover the potential, find the truth, and expand consciousness.
Most of all, our consciousness is limited to the tendency of seeking confirmation of any information. This means that when you are looking for any information you unconsciously reject everything that disagrees with your opinion. And you do that until you find something that confirms your theory or believes.
People, who want to broaden their views, must learn to variability of thinking, and not just try to find evidence to everything that coincides with their opinion.
Very often, when people hear the words expand consciousness, they think that they are going to be brainwashed with strange ideas. But this expression simply means that you will have the ability to think more broadly and consider new information from all sides.
Do not be afraid of new ideas and opinions of others. Learn to think wider does not mean you have to agree or disagree with someone or something – you just get the opportunity to look more critically at things around.
Our ego often creates obstacles on the way to our goals. Self-assertion is necessary, but do not lose control of your ego. If a person tries to get rid of the prejudices, one’s ego is put to a test. When this happens, do not forget that it is impossible to know everything. And even if you have lived in the world for hundreds of years life never ceases to teach you a lesson. Exercise restraint when listening to others.
In today’s world, everyone needs to think for themselves. Today, people have so little free time that they quote the thoughts of others, even without examining whether these thoughts coincide with their views or not. Do not rely only on what others tell you. If you need to carefully examine a large amount of information do it and you will not regret.
In order to develop identity, don’t isolate from new information. If philosophers, astronomers and scientists hadn’t explored new horizons, we’d still believe that the earth is flat, would not have learned of the existence of gravity, and have not found a cure for many diseases.
To be open to new information does not mean to blindly believe everything you see and hear. It means not to have too much self-esteem and realize that there is always room for something new, no matter how much we already know.
