To “Notice the Obvious” is to notice the important thing that you already know but forgotten about.
To notice the obvious is to connect to nature.
It’s a three word reminder to acknowledge the foundational elements of any particular problem you’re trying to solve or idea you’re trying to grasp.
To notice the obvious is to first, recognise your instinct and only after that, make a judgement on what to do.
Noticing the obvious is about understanding language; not to learn a new language but to remember the meaning of words in your own language. Remember that words are “representations” of “ideas“. And ideas are “pictures” of “things”.
Ultimately, if you can notice the obvious your self confidence will increase — simply from you remembering that all you are is “confident,” before you had forgotten it. And your happiness will increase — simply from you remembering that all you are is “happiness,” before you had forgotten it.
Noticing the obvious means noticing BOTH that which is… and that which is not. (The only way we notice anything is by defining it. The only way we define anything is by separating it from “the rest” or “the background,” or in other words, by contrasting it to what it is not.)
In the coming blog posts I will be trying to notice some more obvious things.
