Wisdom from Michael Levy

Wisdom from Michael Levy

Many folks fish with a big hook of memories that have a reference point not of their choosing. Before they could assemble their fishing tackle of thoughts, a whole bunch of people came into their fishing grounds when they were born and indoctrinated them.

They gave them a large variety of negative bated thoughts and educated them to net in toxic thoughts into the memory banks. If we tried to let the catch of toxic thought free, to swim away from our minds, they constantly maintained that it is wrong to free doom and gloom. They told us that we would go to hell if we disobey rules and regulations that are man-made nonsensical doctrines. They said it is only normal to worry. So it is… but it sure ain’t natural.

Many of the great philosophers of the past were slain because of the truths they spoke. Even today, the “Free Press” restrict the views of many spiritual thinkers for fear their newspaper’s sensationalism may be exposed and folks would stop buying their baloney. They are master-baiters of negative news. They keep reeling out all the dirt they can find, leaving most of the beautiful deeds of humankind unreported….Continue reading at InspireMeToday.com.

The greatest defence against indoctrination is realising that it's happening, training our awareness and questioning: who is saying this, where does it come from, what agenda is it from. And then, taking responsibility for forming your own opinions.

Good post.

This article is more worthy than the other crap being posted. Care2 editors take note. All one has to do is listen to the voice that is within to know the truth.

I like this quote from Doris Lessing
"You are in the process of being indoctrinated. We have not yet evolved a system of education that is not a system of indoctrination. We are sorry, but it is the best we can do. What you are being taught here is an amalgam of current prejudice and the choices of this particular culture. The slightest look at history will show how impermanent these must be. You are being taught by people who have been able to accommodate themselves to a regime of thought laid down by their predecessors. It is a self-perpetuating system. Those of you who are more robust and individual than others, will be encouraged to leave and find ways of educating yourself-educating your own judgment. Those that stay must remember, always and all the time, that they are being molded and patterned to fit into the narrow and particular needs of this society."

You can be indoctrinated by the Toxic School of Thought or by the La La Land School of Thought, but there is an alternative and it is called rational thinking.
