With the course Thinking Differently you can make a positive contribution to the world. Starting with yourself, with your own thinking.
Although the one person thinks more consciously than the other, people are thinkers. Our way of thinking determines our way of life. The way of life of humanity as a whole determines the state of the world.
Do we want to see change? Then the conclusion is: by changing our own way of thinking, we change the world. The solution lies in ourselves. An encouraging thought!
Each of us has the ability to understand more of the background of life. We can further develop our thinking independently and self-consciously by investigating our way of thinking and changing it wherever necessary. In this way we grow and we become wiser.
Are you willing to start with yourself and make a positive contribution? Take on the challenge!
Improve your thinking, improve the world.
What the course is based on
The course is based on the core of wisdom that underlies all major religions and philosophies. This core of wisdom encourages spiritual growth.
Spiritual growth can only take place with genuine research into Truth. Therefore, do not just believe what we say, but examine it! Only assume that which you have experienced as true through independent research. Only in this way you can develop a practical philosophy that helps to answer vital questions and solve problems in the world.
