What the h?ll happened to common sense?
I cannot remember and almost forgot about that last time I heard someone saying “ use your common sense” in a way to get back to your original mental ground. It’s rarely if not vacant from any conversation I have ever heard lately. Thomas Paine even wrote a whole book on “Common Sense” back in the day. There are a lot of things going on out there in the world today socially that are confusing and mentally draining along let alone a lot of pressures of the economy. There has been an onslaught of solutions that are provided by coaches and mentors which is a good thing for a lot of people to organize and gain perspective in their life. Now I am of course excluding individuals with deeper mental issues. There are of course people who do need professional help. But what happened to “using your common sense” ? Years ago if someone had a quandary or a mental impasse one would just take the time to seek their true senses to gain back their perspective. After all isn’t that what reality is ? and is that not how we become adjusted again? Does there have to be so much emphasis on getting outside help to adjust what you already have the wherewithal and power to do for yourself by simply taking a minute to commune with yourself and realize your own senses..
I doubt I am reading into this too much but once again I have not heard anyone in years mention using their common sense which was the ability to simply take a deep breath and realize your senses to get back your perspective. Maybe there is another term that I am not familiar with and I am out of the loop.
