Sometimes what sounds the easiest is often the hardest. As everyone who is trying to lose weight can attest, “eat less”, “sleep better”, “exercise more”, are deceptively difficult.
The same goes for thinking. In its most elementary, thinking is opening oneself to the other within oneself, to sit down and listen to that seed within one which challenges one’s entire framework. It requires only a certain and good-will.
But thinking is also the most difficult thing. Every single thought is necessarily a struggle, a militancy, against self-complacency. It is something that requires an entire life to learn.
How can we learn it? Perhaps, through trying to think. Or, to observe others in thinking.
