No time to think.

The Passionate Pupil (@deanzumwalt) 8 years, 9 months ago

It seems that in today’s society there is never time to sit down and think, and I mean really THINK. Some people manage to set aside time to sit quietly and think, to do nothing but think, but what about people like me? People who take a bit more time to really get going?

The questions I want answered are these;

Is there a place, organization, or community that is highly conducive to thinking, something/someone who helps people to order their thoughts and truly dedicate time to learning about themselves?

How can I order my thoughts and truly begin to learn about myself?

I’ve spent essentially my entire life thoughtlessly, I don’t put conscious thought into anything I do or really anything I’ve ever really done. There’s been a few times that I’ve somehow managed it and I’ve really benefited from those times, but unfortunately they are few and far between.

Those of you who I’ve spoken to before (pretty much none of you because I’m slightly misanthropic) have more than likely heard me describe myself as feeling as though I were on autopilot my entire life until yesterday, as though I’m a newborn but somehow in a young adult’s body. The reason I’ve described myself as feeling that way is because up until this point I’ve never really done anything consciously I’ve spent the entirety of my life up until this point going with the flow and “feeling it out”, going with gut instincts and reactions as opposed to thinking things out.

Also I might be mentally challenged… I honestly do not know. I imagine I’m either a very special person or I’m mentally challenged/unstable. That is my honest assessment of myself.

@deanzumwalt, “I’ve spent essentially my entire life thoughtlessly, I don’t put conscious thought into anything I do or really anything I’ve ever really done.” Well, um, Dean… if you start thinking now and do so for the next 75 years, and there’s a such thing as a conclusion to that thinking… that conclusion might well be that which you stated in this sentence.

@deanzumwalt, You can think wherever you like. Just stop listening to music (if you do) when you go out and about, and spend your time thinking instead of passively listening to music.
