From a very emotional conservative what made me be a thinking liberal? The need of progress made me transform myself. If I let myself be devoured by my emotions rather than drinking that water of rational thinking, I will not go anywhere.
Liberating my mind had given me a wider understanding of the world around me. The idea of fear from my old beliefs is this one great obstacle stopping me to have a clarity of views. There is a world more beautiful than what I used to know its just that I'm blinded by my article of faith. I rejected the use of feelings alone, but thanks to my sensitivity it leads me to my self-betterment. My bad experiences due to the failure caused by my emotions had transformed me into a thinking person.
There are two basic guides of mankind, feelings and thinking, which are fundamental in decisions making. Thinking is a more complex process than feelings, but this step of more reasonable approach is more reliable than our sentiments. Passion is a great motivation for mankind to keep moving forward, but mental power is required for leadership.
Sentimentality, the use of emotions for the cause of reason to find truth, has many fallacies. Morality is the use of sentimentality, and this is a good guide to live a more peaceful world, but this is just a man made rules. For that we all know man is not perfect and is always being controlled by the ego. There is a better way to improve ourselves that I agree. Rationality is an innate guide to know the truth and to make better decisions in our lives.
Rationality is the acquiescence of God's laws and not man made laws. This mental capacity is the imposing the will of God. Most of us are deaf to hear the words simply because we are busy being misled by the hypocritical government and not using our brains. Most brains are dusty for not utilizing reason and we are blinded by the dust of misleading mainstream propagandas.
I agree that rationality rather than morality should be the guide for humanity to live a better world and for man to be totally free, but I would want humans to not be rigid. Flexibility is the use of balance. I want to clarify that I don't want to promote numbness to mankind by highlighting "REASON". Emotion clouds the thinking, but without feelings we cannot see the pouring rain.
Reason is the key to the room of wisdom in this stupid dark world of ignorance. Our ignorance is the reason why the world is such a harsh world to live. Man by nature is benevolent its just our ideas that made us a beast. The use of our brains and heart is the proper way of wise living. Wisdom is the use of love and knowledge.
