1. Be aware all the time. Not paranoid, Aware!
Awareness can be gained through clearing ones mind. To find a more fruitful practice on how to clear out your mind look for a meditation manual but
only do what works for you. Above all be open minded.
2. Avoid labeling and boxing idea's
Nowadays everything has a label attached to it and because of that we have been unable to enjoy life and have overlooked the obvious miracle that is
existence. Because of boxing ideas we have not been able to enjoy or transform our outdated modes of thinking. We even have to be aware of what we are
doing because, through bad practice we have made trouble for ourselves because of an imposed will or understanding that we were gaining something. A
lot of older people say that having another person and being broke all the time is a lot better than having an empty house as we approach our dieing
3. Practice thinking freely on a daily basis.
Question everything that arouses your curiosity but know when to stop questioning. Take leaps outside your normal daily routines. If something
doesn't happen let it go. If something happens accept it whether it is good or bad. The person who put themselves in any situation or arrived at any
situation might be by a fluke or chance but you are there and that's the end of it. Might as well cope and move on or enjoy yourself.
4. Realize fear and realize happiness
Fear is a self activating mechanism in all life forms. It can be overcome with practice. That is, life experience. Where a child or young mother
become fearful for their lives upon spotting a wolf or bear an experienced woodsman might smile and move on. Example: The young mother knows nothing
about wildlife because she was raised in the city and has never encountered wildlife just perhaps a zoo. Whereas the woodsman knows it is spring and
could be in the area around the salmon run and know that the salmon run is happening so he isn't afraid the bear but gives it plenty of distance. Its
all about experience and learning what is necessary to stay alive at first then about... Well for me its about learning after I have my essential
skills. After survival skills what your decide your life is about is completely up to you.
5. Remain calm and always accept criticism.
Sometimes someone will attack our curiosity or our current attitude toward life but we must always remain calm and welcome criticism because of that
criticism we can refine our own abilities on our quest for knowledge or happiness. A simple "Thank you I appreciate your criticism" is always in
order. However if you are part of a debate try to end it by the same means. However also always remember to stay calm and relaxed our minds work
better in a relaxed state.
6. Add as many steps as you need to to this process.
What i wrote here is merely a jumping point. You decide what your free thinking is. Just don't forget about labels and boxing idea's its very bad if
we don't subject our own selves and ideas we believe in to the world. In a world where everything is up for debate we realize ourselves and live more
at peace if we practice this mode of thinking properly.
Thank you for your time.
