Living life, Reflection, The Self

(Over) thinking?

Is it possible to be an intelligent thinker who delights in the mysteries and beauty of everyday life, and revel in innocent childlike nature?

Or are we so filled with knowledge and thoughts of correlations, possibilities, options and consequences such that the wisdom of simplicity is lost?

Dictionaries define a thinker as one who thinks deeply and seriously, who studies or considers ideas about knowledge, truth, philosophy etc.

Can a thinker be serious and have a sense of humour?

Should a thinker be casual and imprecise in their words and considerations? 

Can a thinker be present instead of “lost in thoughts”?

Can a thinker accept and not question? Can things just be easy?  

Is it possible to be an intelligent thinker who doesn’t “overthink”? What is overthinking anyway? There are varying depths of thinking. Is a judgment necessary on what’s over?A perspective, we are merely thinking. And another, it is more than necessary and unusual. 

Is it possible to merely accept the machinations of our minds, with its refusal to take the easy answers, and a continuous exploration and search for more, for improvement?

Who is a thinker? What is a thinker? How should a thinker be? 

Can we take each as they are?
