I haven't been updating this blog actively for the past few months because of some conflicts I have with myself. I've finally admitted that I have those conflicts late last night (I'm slow, I know) and action is what follows. I'm giving myself several challenges to do in order to break free of my old habits. The first and major one is:
No random web surfing for 7 days straight
One of the addictions that I have is continually browsing the web for no particular reason (be it on youtube, forums or the comments section of news articles). And before I knew it I've spent 2 or 3 hours sitting there practically doing nothing.
So unless I have some specific need of going on to a website (checking what's on sale is NOT a need), I'll not open my web browser, at least not for the next 7 days. Some other minor challenges also started today.
I'll also have a new series of posts about definitions of some slippery terms. What is reality? What is a fact, a truth? What is a person? What is a mind?
I've read a lot of books and know a lot of things about the world and what not. But until I've experienced them, they are nothing but knowledge that does nothing for me. I need to convert knowledge into wisdom. In other words, I could read about how to drive a car all I want, but it's when I actually drive one that I would know how it's really like.
I won't stop seeking knowledge, but my focus is more on myself right now. This blog is now a personal journal.
