Thought of the day.....

Thought of the day:

Is it a fear of the unknown or the known that makes us pull back? Is it the what if..or the knowing deep within ones mind, body and soul?

Conventional wisdom (an oxymoron?) is that it is fear of the unknown, as also expressed by 'the devil that you know is better than the devil that you don't'.

Unconventional wisdom (mine, and only mine) suggests that fear of the known is the great inhibitor. It runs along the lines of 'I know I heard a tale that this is bad or wrong or going to hurt'.

The unknown can be intimidating, but only by travelling there can one break free of conventional wisdom.

The unknown is liek the future and is forever changing. The known remains (although cloudy at times) and can even be collective (e.g. philosophical ideas)
Like beauty - the unknown is in the eye of the beholder.
To me... it's the known that clouds the chances in life. Sometimes to regret - others to happy circumstance.
And how deep can one truly go within mind,body and soul?

both the known and unknown are factors in our decisions but i would say generaly that the unknown is the greater fear.but to some that fear is the adrenaline that drives them,

life is so complex.

How deep can you go body mind and soul...interesting...the mind goes extremly deep...deep enough to scare away the strongest of people..the body will and could be brought to new heights every single time it is shown...your there any measurement to that??

from the time we r born we r going into the unknown, so it must be this fear that keeps us going. if we were no un known then life itself would be boring.

well, their are lies we tell ourselves. Fear is inherant feeling people have when they are threatened. However some fears are fancied, meaning we make them up, they are ungrounded. They come from our past. These fears are the LIE. Its not so black and white..For some the fear of not knowing is exciting..some what. lack of control. Their are people, that want that lack of control even if it makes them uncomfortable...

its also relative to the person that is experiencing it...

thats all i have at the moment
