“Deep Thinking”

*********************************************

Diamonds from Harun Yahya’s Book;

“Deep Thinking”

*********************************************

When one fails to control one’s thoughts and direct them towards achieving a good end, one may often feel apprehension or treat events that have not happened as if they have occurred and become led astray by grief, distress, worry, and fear.

*****

What are the reasons that prevent thought?

  • Following the majority causes mental numbness
  • Mental indolence
  • The conditioned response that “Thinking too much is not good”
  • Avoiding the responsibilities that thinking brings
  • Not thinking because of being swept away by the flow of daily life
  • Looking at everything with “The eye of habit” and therefore seeing no need to reflect thereon

*****

Those things that need to be thought about:

  • When one wakes up in the morning make one think
  • What our weakness makes us think
  • What some features of the human body make one think about
  • What a multi-colored world makes one think
  • What a hearse seen on the way should make one think
  • What difficulties someone meets at work make him think
  • What a cobweb makes one think
  • What illnesses make one think about
  • Meeting an arrogant, spoiled, offensive, bad-tempered person makes one think
  • What do fruits served during a meal make one think
  • What flavors and odors make one think
  • What beauties seen in nature make one think
  • What the “conscious” movements of ivy make one think
  • What trees make one think
  • What the frequency of cases of violence, robbery, and homicide make one think
  • What discussion programs lasting till morning make one think
  • What famine and poverty in every corner of the world make one think
  • What disasters occurring around the world make one think
  • What news items about usury make one think
  • What eternity makes one think
