Common Sense Is Not The Same For Everyone

Common Sense CareerFHCommon sense is subjective and based on perception. Have you ever thought to yourself: “Well duh, this is common sense! How can’t they know this obvious piece of knowledge?”

Common sense only becomes common sense to you once you’ve learned how to think in a new specific way. As you grow, you learn a lot from your experiences which becomes valuable lifelong important lessons and skills. Not everybody walks through the same path. What can be perceived as common sense for one may not be that obvious to the next person depending on their own life’s path.

There’s so much experiences that everyone can gather over their lifetime that it’s impossible to figure out everything by yourself. You can accelerate the process of becoming Zen and more aware by learning from other people, by reading their thoughts, page by page through books or audio books.

Critical thinking also plays an integral part in order to understand and figure out common sense. The art of reasoning and questioning are to be implemented in order to figure out the true nature of the “why” things are the way they are. Have you ever heard of the Liberal Arts?

In a nutshell: Liberal Arts consist of two sets of divisions. The first one is Trivium which is a systematic method of critical thinking. It includes the first three divisions of the seven Liberal Arts which are: grammar, logic and rhetoric. The other four are called the Quadrivium and its divisions are: arithmetic, geometry, music and astronomy.

The idea was that you have to grow your knowledge from division one and make your way up to division seven but the most important ones are the Trivium which are division one to division three. In ancient times, these where considered the must know skill set to have for every free human being in order to take active part in everyday life.

With all of today’s distractions, it’s easy to slip away from what’s known as common sense as people don’t take ownership of  any responsibility for their own actions anymore. What’s worse is that if you’ve never been exposed to this sort of knowledge (Trivium), how are you expected to fully understand what’s going on around you?

 

Common Sense Continued

When I was young naïve and confused in my times of struggles, my god mother gave me a French booked called: “Les Douze Lois Cosmiques”. This book shined the light on a new and better path.  It has opened my eyes and changed my life on how I see, feel and perceive things around me. This book was the seed of awareness that led me to my continuous research and personal growth.

Unfortunately this book is only in French and really hard to find as it’s now discontinued and no longer available in libraries. You may be lucky to find it in a used book store. 

Coming back to understanding common sense and the Trivium, think of it this way; gravity is a fundamental force whether you understand it or not, it will pull stuff to the ground period. When you understand that principle regardless of what your beliefs are you can make that force work in your favor.

The same is true about the Trivium. Whether you fully understand those skills or not, they are still present and some people are using them. If you are aware of them, you can harness their benefits to your advantage by asking the right questions and figuring out the true nature of the “why” which will then lead to a new epiphany, the newly found common sense based on the new knowledge.

I would like to empower you with this gift of knowledge. If want to learn more about questioning and reasoning, listen to the words of Socrates and Plato. They both offer words of wisdoms that are over thousands of years old and yet still speaks deeply to a whole other level in today’s setting.

Their teaching will help you develop an enlighten common sense about life in general. You will learn, discover and grow a new common sense that will separate you from 80% of people that are numb to reality and unaware of these skills. It’ll bring your awareness to a whole new level and will help you deal better with “today’s common sense ignorant people”.

In summary, if you find someone doesn’t share the same “common sense” as you do, be patient, stay calm, take your time and educate the reasoning behind that “common sense” to the person. The more you become aware of any topics, the more patient you should become when teaching them with someone who sees this for the first time so be honourable as you know something that they don’t.

May this new knowledge help you in your professional life on how to deal properly with everyday hard situations and your personal life where you can take advantage of these lifelong learnt skills to better manage your emotions and overall become a better Zen, informed, understanding, compassionate and patient person.

These teachings have helped me in so many ways to grow and hopefully you will get the most out of these skills like I did.

What about you, what is your definition of common sense?
