I try to be open-minded without absorbing useless information.
Because I don’t know everything. And, there is a lot of useless information available.
We human beings tread on forces of incomplete knowledge; new knowledge is being revealed each day.
The knowledge in my head is incomplete, so to speak. It’s like a mathematics student who learns the principle of addition. The student gets addition correct but isn’t yet aware of subtraction, division and so on.
Or, the knowledge about my physical body is incomplete. I learn something new each day about the body and even though the body is impressive, it’s still an incomplete, immature idea in knowledge.
So, I need to be open-minded. I need to be open to receiving the knowledge I need for each moment. I can do this with an all-knowing divine Mind, ever revealing useful ideas.
The all-knowing isn’t defined as a mind that knows all at once, all data and statistics and truths. It’s defined more so as a mind always knowing true ideas exactly when needed.
Divine Mind doesn’t know or create incomplete ideas. Therefore, the all-knowing Mind didn’t create physical bodies. Mind created all the right ideas about a body, but not the physical body in and of itself because it always includes an unknown.
We were created to embody complete, spiritual, harmonious, beautiful ideas.
This eliminates the stress that comes with trying to make an imperfect body into a perfect body. We can instead know, and act on, what the all-knowing Mind is knowing, holy, just, purposeful, humble, grateful, honest ideas.
Have you ever experienced a time when you did something unexpected and later discovered it kept you safe? The idea came from divine Mind. Those ideas are present and powerful all the time.
And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.–Isaiah 30:21, ESV
