We Learn Not To Ask The Right Question
When a group is formed, it creates an ethos: when we join a group, we have to abide by its customs and mannerisms.
We learn from a very early age to abide by what the teacher says. This makes sense because we want to fit into society so that it runs smoothly. If, however, we naturally find we do not fit because we question and ask why, we are labelled as non-conformist and shunned. No independent thinking wanted here! That tells us everything we need to know.
If we wish to realise our enlightened nature,
we have to ask the question, “Why?”
