An open mind is what you need for inspiration, though not for taking conclusions.
So does 3 x 3 = 9 and some need 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1=9 ... then there are smaller and smaller increments still.
We do not actually know other people, we ONLY know our judgement.
The good and the evil in the world, there are many complications behind them which are hard to understand which is why we should never only focus on the surface and judge others without understanding them first.
The terrible reality of humanity is everyone's emotions are caused by what each privately thinks and not by any public truth.
No one has ever made anyone happy or unhappy.
It's terrible only because it looks like "taking credit for their experience" is taken seriously. All alone with expectation and mystery, no one a catalyst.
Everything goes full spiral, from victim of circumstances, to controller, to acceptor of circumstances. The external influence is recognized and released.
Yes, you are completely entitled to your opinion and you absolutely do have the right to voice it.
But, do you have no kindness?
Spewing hate is straight up ugly, and ignorant, not to mention detrimental to humanity.
So what's the point of knowing this?
We still have social knowledge of what's cool and what isn't. It's just intelligent to think of a certain way when someone says "I want to kill you."
The words you hear/read give you clues to what is going on, and what you can do about it.
Language is about social landmarks, helping you navigate in the who-wants-to-do-what-and-to-or-with-whom.
So, yes, it seems like my thoughts affect my emotions. But it also seems language affects my thoughts and actions affect my emotions.
Trying to connect with other living beings, sometimes being nurtured and sometimes being hurt by the feedback, not really knowing the reason why, it does terribly seem like we are in the same explicable loop.
