Most of us are living in anxiety, unhappiness, fearful and unsatisfied life. It is either the government is “not good” or our relatives are blamed for not helping us, or our spouses are to blame for our financial, unprogressive lives and struggles. Or we accept that we have failed as there seem to be no other way except seeking help from men and women physical and spiritual who seem to have the magic wand of turning things around for a good life to come our path. Modern day prophets would then show up on our lines, with distortions and physiological cajoling.
The "lower animals" who can easily be swayed are set against their homes, relationship, work and career. Some people are told what work to take, what business to run and what woman or man to marry, what country to travel to, where to live, what chair, car, clothes to buy, what school to enroll their wards. They are also told what trade to engage in. What a tragedy!
Most people’s lives are run by their parents, siblings ( unfortunately for some by younger siblings), friends etc. You can never be fulfilled or be happy with your life if all you have is a programmed brain, emotion and thinking. There is a strong power of your mind. It has been given to you by God and you need to use it freely. Its not tied to any man or woman, but YOU. You have the right to unleash it.
The single reason most people are not happy is because they have all their lives programmed and they have stored (and keep storing) in their brain and mind, the negative influence, words and actions they have been sold to since they were born . Words, thoughts and mindset of parents, cultures, traditions, friends and siblings, their country, government, politicians, teachers, social media lies and negative news media.
You can be who you are meant to be on earth, excel and have a wonderful living. You can actually take that big step and destroy the fears in your life. You can travel to that country that you desire, start that business that you have always wanted to start, raise that money you have always targeted and live successfully and happily on earth.
Most of us are so immune with the TV, Radio and Internet and are ready to accept only but negative news that comes from them that they control our lives. We are doomsday people. We love tragic and horror stories more on social media and we are happy searching for negative news and being afraid.
We are happy when we are told that we are being bewitched or having ill luck from the older woman or man from our homes and villages, we accept our failures and defeat and liken them to bad government and negative powers from our homes.
Truth: You are a product of your thinking, your acceptance of the above and you can shine on earth starting from today if you make your mind a tabula rasa.
Men such as Plato, Kant, Nietzsche, Buddha , Confucius , Averroes were very exceptional and free-willed in their thinking and this is the only difference between a chicken and the eagle. The eagle can shine and fly while the chicken is limited. But an eagle who is bred in the midst of chickens will one day fly away once he can realize that he is not a chicken. That’s what you need to do today.
Tabular Rasa or Blank Slate: Tabula rasa refers to the epistemological idea that individuals are born without built-in mental content and that therefore all knowledge comes from experience or perception. Proponents of tabula rasa generally disagree with the doctrine of Innatism which holds that the mind is born already in possession of certain knowledge. Generally, proponents of the tabula rasa theory also favor the "nurture" side of the nature versus nurture debate when it comes to aspects of one's personality, social and emotional behavior, knowledge and sapience”.
If you can make your brain and mind a blank slate today, and stop seeing what you see as failure but challenges, stop seeing yourself as inferior or with complex and low self esteem, deprogram your mind for success, see who you are to be and not what you are now, blank out all your past failures, negative words you have been told by your parents, friends, siblings and the society as well as the news media and start with a new mind that you can achieve anything you want, and set yourself on fire, there is nothing you cannot be. Make your brain a blank slate.
At any age, you can start this; where is that book you were meant to write, that song, that career you have always wanted, that Church you wanted to establish to preach God. Where is it?
The best brains are in the cemetery according to late sage, preacher and author Miles Munroe. You are on earth here to shine and you were originally created to make a great impact on this planet. What about that relationship you have ever wanted, that degree.
What about that endeavor you started and never achieved because you thought it has failed? Push further. Push and push today.
Start right now, start again, start with a new mind of greatness. Think big.
