Habits are the most stagnating factor, because they hinder us in thinking in a creative way.


We hold the symbol in honour and attribute the word the greatest importance, and to do this is highly distorting. There namely happens that, that the word, the symbol, the image, becomes the most important. 

It is in this way, that temples, churches and the many different organized religions and ideologies, with their symbols, doctrines and dogmas, become factors, which hinder the mind in reaching forth, and discover truth.

The philosophical counselor must therefore all the time remind the guest about not letting him be catched by words, by symbols, which automatically create habits.

Habits are the most stagnating factor, because they hinder us in thinking in a creative way.

  1. Habits like automation, are mechanical, and always the same; same movement, same result! Creativity is like a river, ever flowing and new, yet it's essence remains pure and unchanging. Sue
