Balance critical thinking with hope – Homaira Kabir

Critical thinking, in the absence of the strengths of transcendence can turn into bitter cynicism.

Finding fault without feelings of gratitude leads to bitterness and anger. Finding fault without feeling hopeful about improving the situation produces a strange resignation mixed with elements of superiority. Finding fault without seeing the beauty and goodness of human beings makes us believe the worst about ourselves as a species and blinds us to the virtue in the world.” – Homaira Kabir

This is the intersection between psychology and spirituality. I’m in.
