Discussion on philosophy or a philosophical discussion, which is it?


"The mind is like a fertile garden. It will grow anything you wish to plant - beautiful flowers or weeds, and so it is with successful and healthily thoughts or negative ones that will, strangle and crowd the others, do not let negative thoughts enter your mind for they are the weeds that strangle confidence."

It will be interesting to see how this stimulants who reads it.

I can see the writers point. What I wanted to point out was every yard has at least one weed, even if the owner is diligent at weed removal/spraying. That doesn't mean he needs to beat himself up over it, just get rid of the weed.

Would you agree that as far as human beings go, we are all born with a garden with no weeds?

I do agree with that. We are bare ground until the seeds are planted. What seeds are planted decides what weeds there will be later. It is up to the caretaker to tend to or pull those weeds.

That's a bit more than you asked for, sorry. lol

So a person that an average man or woman, a peer, considers to be a "mean" person it is in fact a learned behavior?

In a sense that is what I am saying. Unless the person is born with some kind of chemical imbalance or brain damage. I do believe that we all have a choice as to how we act or behave. We are the caretakers to our garden/yard. The weeds in our yard could have been there for years. If you don't like them, find out how to remove them.

I feel strongly on this point. I was raised in a viscious home. The decision to be a "nice" person wasn't easy.

Very well put and my hat is off to you! Very good to learn of someone who knows there is more to life than TV commercials.

Thank you. I do like to form my own opinions, even if I don't know where to start sometimes. lol

This is going to sound odd, but I think a post got reported on accident. I'm still getting the hang of all of this and I just blindly typed the number in the box without thinking about it. If this causes any problems I apologize. It's the blonde showing. lol
