The Keys to Mindless Learning

Earlier, my typical response to beat this learning curve I was up against all my life was that I approach it in a complicated way.

The reality…

Anything that appeared even remotely challenging would always gear me up to tackle it head-on. However, now that I know my answer doesn’t lay within the complex response of increased effort, I’m able to drop my stance and not try so hard to get it right.

By seeing the simple fact that my fields of interest require other aspects of my life to be in order, I have discovered one of two keys that unlocks my energy. I need to keep my whole mind in order and not just one aspect. I need the whole house clean and not just one room. Otherwise, during the day I end up stepping around a mess, which comes at a cost. Now, I leave any type of playtime or messy behaviour out in the backyard where it belongs. Then as I walk back in (by exiting my smaller escape), I naturally wipe my feet clean and enjoy a fresh, uncluttered environment.

The second key is recognising my attachment to sensation duplication. I was an information addict, convincing myself narrow-mindedly that I was going over everything stored upstairs again and again in order to learn more things. But the truth was that I was simply trying to get my fix of the elation that comes with learning something new. This really meant that I learned less and less as my energies were focused on the sensation rather than the information itself.

The two keys to better learning:

1 – Keep your mind clean and organised so that your learning processes are optimised. No clutter = efficient thinking.

2 – Learn for learning’s sake. Being mindful of the impulse for excessive sensory rewards = clean information intake.

Fortunately, as a result of this clarity today, my addiction reduced and I absorb more crucial information in line with my interests or the better-matched aspects. Also, the appeal quality naturally opened its doors to less desirable fields.

Once I took a good step back and could see the importance of a Fully Organised House, I got my act together. Not only that, but the best part is that my cogs strengthened enough for me to explore new areas where I usually wouldn’t have travelled. Now there is virtually no limit to the things I can learn and the places I can explore.
