Sigmund Freud gave us the concept of the Id-Ego-Superego…the world realized the there was an ongoing struggle between conflicting thoughts in our very own minds, day in and day out.
Isaac Newton realized that apples never fell upwards or rather I should say fly upwards in the air like birds do….the world knew that gravitational force was the one thing that kept them from falling off the surface of the earth which spun at an enormous speed.
Now, to think rationally, these mind blowing concepts put forth by great men who walked this world, were always present in our minds….we never gave it a second thought to them. Maybe we never put a name to these thoughts we had or feelings we underwent…yes Shakespeare was not that correct when he made Romeo say “What’s in a name?”
So what does all this make the rest of us? – A bunch of heedless Homo sapiens incapable of the power of thought?
None of us would appreciate such an adjective being added before our proper names – willingly and forcefully, of course. We don’t like to be taught after a certain age and a certain time in our lives. We think we then have the power of some Knowledge, the power of full understanding the power of all those mind processes which we assume we should have …well makes us a kind of Megalomaniacs in a way. Remember the Hawk in Ted Hughes’ the Hawk roosting. How is growth possible then?
Growth means change right!!
On the personal front, we all have our own ways of handling things…fortunately most of the time and unfortunately at times we end up with the right spouse and friends…birds of the same feather folk together!! We could try out ideas that pop up in our weird brains at times…be it in interior designing or out door games or in the kitchen or else where….Aquarians are known for them!
On the professional front we keep learning and unlearning often a norm of the day….remember the Paycheck, which was an exaggeration in terms of the progress in technology. But we do have to unlearn and recollect a lot at the job corner.
There are reasons to what we do and why we do it?
We do it as it increases our stand in the organization or out of shear adventure.
All this apart there are times when we resist change…why is that we grow stubborn at times when what is told to us is absolutely the right thing to do at that point of time? Why a resistance if not for the fact that we are not incarcerated or our rights taken away and locked up in a drawer somewhere!
A change in the routine causes a lot of confusion for one thing, after a certain stage it is becomes difficult to adjust to another way of life all together, like Darwin’s theory of evolution caused havoc in the religious minds of the people of Europe. Why talk about Darwin when a delay or the early arrival of the cab in the morning could make one run helter-skelter or a late morning on a week day is equally wanted to be forgotten!!!
Certain pop ups that disturb my brain at times my mind is idle….
Why don’t all of us think …and put down stuff….
Why such a hoo-haa when what is proposed is something we experience day in and day out…
Why then does that change in thinking and ways cause a cyclone at times and takes time to settle in…but is finally accepted….
Then if is it so good and always done why resist….why is there always a bifurcation?
Maybe the bifurcation or trifurcation and the number of forcations in the thought of people is why we all our unique …..!!!!
