Our mind is very deceptive. It actually tries to fool us most of the times by trying to find appropriate reasons to justify what we want to do. Whatever we do in our lives- it is out of our desires and urges. And similarly, if we do not feel like doing something, our mind finds an appropriate reason for not doing it. Mind is not hollow and empty. So any decision or action that we take by using your intellect or logic is, at a particular level, a reflection of our urges and not rational thinking. Because rational thinking cannot be done by a mind that has impressions and.. hardly anybody’s mind is empty..
