Learned How to Think - Emmet Fox

“Nobody else can involve you in difficulty or limitation. Neither parents, nor wives, nor husband, nor employers, nor poverty, nor ignorance, nor any power whatever can keep you out of your own when once you have learned how to think.” Emmet Fox (Find & Use Your Inner Power)

Learned is the keyword in his writing. Meaning; (of a person) having much knowledge acquired by study.

Most of our limitation was instilled in us by others. We block most of God's work in our lives because we do not understand the limitations given to us through the sins of our fathers. 

For example, what do you picture when you read "given to us through the sins of our fathers". The word sin has a meaning we did not learn for ourselves. We were taught the meaning of this word from the limitations of our fathers and never question it. The word "father" you probably think of your father, grandfather, and down through your linage. Maybe "father" is someone in a teaching role.

To learn I needed to first unlearn.

  • Powerful message.  I definitely have a tendancy to believe in the limitations put on me by others. Thanks for the reminder Lefty.

  • How do we continue the process of "unlearning"?

    • What is the opposite of unlearning? 

      Learned is the keyword in his writing. Meaning; (of a person) having much knowledge acquired by study.
