Assumptions

Assumptions are part and parcel of life. We make so many assumptions about people, places and things, often based on our background and culture. But assumptions are always something that we believe to be true without knowing it to be.

Assumptions become inputs into our day-to-day natural decision making process. The intellect uses assumptions as facts, but without actually knowing them to be such. This clouds its ability to discern clearly. Assumptions become the risk in the equation being calculated.

When assumptions are wrong then they can cause a lot of unpredictable responses. If our assumptions involve or affect others in any way, then the risk is that we may hurt others or cause complications in their lives. Such risks are better avoided. It is better not to assume. Take the time to find the facts before engaging the intellect in its work.

Assumptions can be useful, but people and their feelings are invaluable: don’t assume!
