The Natural Perspective of Speed Reading

Aug 18, 2007
We all know how speed reading can enrich our lives both qualitatively and quantitatively. Qualitatively, because by speed reading we will be able train our mind to process its thoughts faster, and that will make us more intelligent over time. Quantitatively, because speed reading enables us to save time and use it for living our lives to the fullest. When we speed read, we are digesting the thoughts of the writer in a shorter span of time, and that gives us more time to analyze those thoughts and even to start applying them to our lives.

Speed reading courses have mushroomed in recent times like a bacterium undergoing binary fission, but it is necessary to emphasize here that all of them need not be effective at all. Some of them might create temporary boosts of speed reading episodes, but that would be all. Most of these courses do not work in the long run because they skin the human brain superficially. There is no conscious effort at making the person realize that speed reading must come from within, and not from any outside factor.

That is why natural speed reading techniques are much more effective. These do not employ any outer factor for enhancing reading skills; on the contrary, they condition the human senses to begin reading faster. This certainly helps the person to read faster; and not only that, the reader can also assimilate the thoughts into memory for a much longer time. In time, the thoughts become constructive inputs to the mind, and the person's life becomes enriched.

You must certainly have heard that children have much better mental capacities than adults. They are able to remember many more things, and can read at a voracious pace than adults can do. Think about it. When you were a child you learnt your native tongue, your state's language and perhaps some others too. That happened as a natural process, didn't it? Do you remember making any effort to master those languages? But if you were to learn a foreign language today as an adult, you can very well appreciate the difficulties you will have to take.

Why does that happen? That is because, as children, our mind is much closer to the natural way it was made - i.e. devoid of the thoughts that we have pumped into it over the ages. As a result, children can read faster, and that certainly improves their mind. Adults have a mind crammed with worries, which does not allow them to savor reading as they did when children.

The prime intention of natural speed reading is to help the mind understand what is in the written matter. The thing to be remembered is that your knowledge of language is the most important tool in speed reading. In that sense, it is your knowledge that is driving in the other knowledge into your mind. This is the whole premise of natural speed reading techniques. You keep a free mind, and then use your own knowledge to better read what is in front of you.

Natural speed reading works in a much better way than other methods because it allows people to understand their own limitations, and trains them to condition their minds to word faster. This method does not just improve reading capabilities, but it can actually help the person to improve life at large.
