Reading, Writing, Discourse

In this article, we will explore how utilizing reading and writing as tools can guide us towards better understanding of ourselves, our world and ultimately, help us find our path in life.


  • Many people lack an understanding of their own experiences and the world around them due to the inability to articulate their thoughts and feelings.

  • The modern education system often focuses on rote memorization and regurgitation of information, rather than promoting critical thinking and personal insight through reading and writing.

  • There is a common misconception that scientific truth is the only "real" truth, while the lessons and truths found in stories, literature, and personal narrative are often overlooked or dismissed.


  • Harness the power of reading and writing to distill stories, understand patterns, and extract lessons from life experiences.

  • Utilize writing to help formulate thoughts, analyze experiences, and gain a deeper understanding of the self and the world.

  • Embrace the idea that truth can come from different sources including stories and personal narratives, not just from scientific facts.

Effective Use

  • Writing can be used as a tool for self-reflection and personal growth, allowing individuals to understand their past experiences, present situations, and future goals.

  • Reading broadens perspectives, exposes individuals to new ideas and provides a wealth of knowledge that can be applied in various aspects of life.

  • The combination of reading and writing can help individuals articulate their thoughts more clearly, leading to effective communication and decision-making skills.


  • Reading without critical thinking can lead to the acceptance of ideas without questioning or understanding them.

  • Excessive focus on writing perfection can hinder the actual process of self-expression and exploration.

  • Misinterpreting the concept of truth can lead to a narrow perspective, disregarding valuable insights from personal narratives or stories.
