What is Justification?
Justification is the process whereby a mind becomes
blinded to certain thoughts or awareness or points of view. It is also the process that
creates motivation. Therefore, Justification can be either a good or bad thing, depending
upon its effectiveness in avoiding troubles.
Whenever the human mind has enough experience with
something always coming out the same way, it stops considering the issue and takes it for
granted. The mind expects things will continue to come out that way and accepts the cause
and effect as a given.
This frees the mind to consider new troubles and to
build upon existing knowledge. The mind can then entertain much more complex
understandings and anticipations, aiding in the prediction and evaluation of problems and
Difficulties arise when things change but the mind
is not alerted. Instead of adapting to new conditions, the mind relies on its old
"proven" understandings. This does not occur due to stupidity, but simply
because knowledge we believe has been proven lodges deep in the subconscious and is seldom
directly accessible to be questioned. This is why the root of our motivations is often
obscure to us, and also why we can get into trouble because of misconceptions and not
realize we are the cause.
