I was in a gathering the other day where everybody BRAGED. Showing off what they have and did. Naturally I just don’t like talking about myself, especially showing off. So i stayed silent. The following days I realized the change in attitude. Obviously the one who showed off the most or in the society’s eyes is “Great” and “Wealthy ” was given respect and honnor. Where for me I was discounted. As a result I got taken by the negativity, not that they harmed me but the act of racism or segregation by itself is negative.
” Just because i dont show off my greatness, doesnt mean i’m not great“. This thought bought me back to my senses. It’s insane how we can think less of ourselves and believe in other’s opinion of us. Yet worst, make it our reality. We live in an age where Trend is stronger than one’s own voice. Indeed, the society tremendously influence how we perceive ourselves. THE ASCH CONFORMITY EXPERIMENT; is a psychological experiment done in the 1950’s. The experiment revealed the degree to which a person’s opinion is influenced by those of groups. It proved that the society can suppress our voice. In fact, people were willing to ignore the reality and give an incorrect answer inorder to conform to the rest of the group. See for yourself ;
You’re great and you don’t need to prove it! No, you don’t need to mimic the fales greatness ( The Greatness measured with materialistic properties, which motivate us to show off and brag instead of act and impact). Greatness is already within you. The true greatness. At the end the only memory will be left of you after you die, is the memories you gave to others. Not your big house or your fancy cars, But how many hearts did you touch. To conclude, just think wiser and become aware of the effect on society on your mind.
ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR IS AN ACT OF INTELLIGENCE IN A WORLD FULL OF CONFORMIST _ Nikola Tesla.
I had a different blog to post today that I prepared beforehand. But when I saw this on my Instagram home page, I just couldn’t help but to make it go viral. It’s crazy how we tend to forget about those who’re under us. We get so caught up by the pormotion of Materialism on our news feed. That we became such self centred creatures with a cruel heart. We envy and hate of those above us (financially), forgetting the truth that we are blessed. We are blessed with so much more than the eye can see and the head can count. We are blessed with so many tinny seemingly invisible blessings on daily basis, that we take for granted. Such as air, water, food, senses, people ..etc
I can’t even count the blessings of god because they’re un-countable. It’s really incredible how the motion of life itself, is a blessing. Imagine if something went wrong all of a sudden? Whatever happens in your present is manifested by the blessings and protection of god. ❤
So be grateful. Thank God for what you have now. Did you know that all God’s creation like animales , plant and nature praises god all the time. In Comparison, how little we do.
What is the soul? Your soul is yourself. The reality of who you are. Indeed you’re nothing more than a deadless, formless and timeless soul. The idea that when your body get sick, your soul get sick which result into death is incorrect. Instead it’s because of a sick soul the body get sick. “We’re not a human beings having a spiritual experience, we’re spiritual beings having a human experience. ”
I want you to imagine a building as your body and it’s base as your soul. The building consist of a strong structure yet if something happens to the base the whole building will fall. On the other hand If something happens to the top of the building the base will remain unaffected. The structure of the building can always be rebuilt; but the base can’t be recovered without destroying the entire building including the base.
My point is, a healthy soul is essential for survival. You must have a strong base in Order to overcome all storms. The amazing thing about the human soul is that it doesn’t ask for much! It doesn’t require sleep or food or money etc. It already have a permemnent life. The only thing the soul needs is a connection with it’s creator. Thus a spiritual connection with god is important, it’s the only way the soul can charge itself and stay alive.
How do I practice spiritual Connection ?
Spiritual connection can be done through praying or meditating. Basically setting an alone time with god, taking to him and acknowledging him. The process of god consciousness is a door way for the soul to connect with it’s master. The absence or lack of this process can be described as heaviness in the chest and you can actually tell that your soul desire a connection with god… It’s very intoxicated by the materialistic world, it badly needs to rest.
How is the soul toxicated by the materialistic world?
The soul is of different nature than the body. The things that the body enjoy and desire; will not satisfy the soul. For example you see people with a sick soul and are very concentrated on the body needs. They arrive at a certain point where their soul breaks. Thus they try to heal it using all the materialistic things in this world but it just never heals.
Your body can do anything your mind command it to do. Your mind is your limitation. If you continue doing something at a constant pace with NO MIND ( no thinking) you can go on to infinity.
This’s how an athlete finished the race with a broken leg. How humans do the “impossible “. It’s not that they’re any special, it’s that they have learned to not give attention to the things that stops them ( thoughts, Fear, physical pain and self doubt). Limitation are their to protect you from the unknown, fight or flight response from your mind to stop you and keep you “safe”.
In order to overcome these intense signals you must shut down the mind! Mute the mind. Don’t think of the pain or your surroundings. Don’t distract yourself with the future or pasr. Then and only then you’ll by pass the physical pain and detach yourself from your entire body. Let me break the process down for you.
1. Have a strong believe in yourself.
2. Mute the mind .
3. Continue the action you’re doing at the moment ( constant momentum of constant velocity at an infinite time).
4. Self talk, if needed!
