“Ignorance of certain subjects is a great part of wisdom.”
–Hugo de Groot
Ignorance is Good.
How can ignorance be good? But it is good to ignore certain things, such as ignorance of gossip. We can also ignore unnecessary negative thoughts. Other things to ignore include self-doubting thoughts and unhelpful suggestions. A lot of these thoughts are just not true…. and you don’t have to accept them as part of your normal experience.
We all go through a tough day. Yet we need to defend our thoughts, and therefore our life.
Our life is based upon our thought. What you think will come through to fruition… It does not mean we ignore life lessons or a candid talk with ourselves; and at times, gently with others. It does not mean everything is perfect.
But in general, we pursue being, doing and recognizing good. This will build a positive life, a positive day and positive relationships
So let’s do a good job of ignoring! We need to let go of the negative view of life. Don’t buy into the outside gossip or inner gossip.
Watch your thoughts, keep them positive and watch your life grow in joy.
I’m Ignoring the Wrong Suggestion,
Hugo de Groot (1583-1645), also called Hugo Grotius, was a philosopher and a theologian, and worked as a jurist in the Dutch Republic. He was extremely influential in the creation of international law. He wrote a number of books, including On the Law of War and Peace, addressing subjects such as just wars and rules to govern conflict. His overall purpose was to urge restraint in rushing to war, and to urge reasonable conduct once war was engaged. In 1608 he married Maria van Reigersberch, with whom he would have eight children (four surviving beyond youth) and who would be invaluable in helping him and the family to weather the storm to come.
