Technology and culture are deeply interrelated. If technology change social culture will change. Just how the industrial revolution turned people into a industrial human beings with different values and mass pursuers. The same thing will happen today. It’s not a new age, but time repeating itself.
However, the rapid change in technology that we’re dealing with today is going to cause a strong confusion. what philosophers call it “a future shock “. Undoubtedly people will adapt to advanced technology yet not everybody will “get it”. The majority of people will be confused which will lead to mental illness.
How to survive in a future shock?
“Learn to unlearn, relearn and learn” I have not better advice to give you. Laterally this’s the key to future survival. We’re all adaptable beings but not everyone is flexible; I’m talking about mental flexibility. If you lack this quality then it’s time to develop it and you can do so by constantly doing new things, exposing yourself to new ideas and not being attached to any fixed form or title.
There’re countless myths about soulmates out there, I honestly dont understand why.. I mean a soulmate must be very distinguishable. However, I decided to make this blog in order to clarify the confusion.
Myth 1: we often think a soulmate is a person who “complete us”. The truth is you’re already a whole, You’re complete by your own. An accurate definition of a soulmate comes from the word itself “mate for the soul“. Which indicate that your soulmate is a person who is spirituality alignment with you and balances you out. A mate who you find harmony with in the physical and non physical world.
Myth 2: Another misunderstanding about soulmates is that he or she must be very similar to you. My answer to this myth is “it depends”. Some soulmates are similar, others are totally opposite. It doesn’t matter! What matters is that there’s a strong field of connection between the two souls. Another sign to look for is that “Do they make me grow?” …doesn’t your partner challenge you into becoming the best version of yourself? If the answer is ” yes” then he/she is your soulmate and vice versa.
Myth 3: Most people believe that a soulmate relationship is all rosy. I’m sorry but it’s not, a soulmate relationship is just like any relationship. There are ups and downs. Especially in a soulmate relationship where each partner subconscious challenges the other’s , it’s fair to say that such relationship could have more difficulties than a regular relationship.
The theory of paralle universe is also called omniverse, is a hypothetical group of multiple universes including the universe in which we live. Together,these universes comprise everything that exists. To clarify, the universe consist of multiple parallel realities, each reality hold a possibility. Your present choice is what determin your reality, you change you destiny by just choosing. As i said in a previous blog; Destiny is made up of two parts. A part that is under ďyour control and a part that’s controlled by God.
Lets take an example, imagine Tom walking down the street and happen to see an ice cream shop. The fact that Tom reached such destination is a blessing from God. However, Tom’s role is to choose whether to take this opportunity or not. Until Tom make up his mind, there exist countless possibilities. Like him buying an ice cream, him not buying an ice, him buying a shake instead, him only using the bathroom or walking away from the ice cream shop…etc. Each of Tom’s possibilities will be in a future parallel reality and once Tom make up his mind, he will experience the chosen reality.
What’s crucial to understand is that if Tom have choosen not to eat an ice cream someone else will eat his ice cream. His opportunity will become someone else’s reality, if he didn’t choose it. This applies on everything in life. If you don’t accept the money, the money will go to someone else. If you don’t eat the food, it will get eaten by someone else and so on. This’s the law of life, to every giver there’s a receiver. You have multiple possibilities, but only one opportunity. So it’s either you choose to give and there will be a receiver or you take in place of those who gave away their opportunity. Another way to think about it is that to every present there’s the absence of it.
THINK THINK THINK .. I’m sure you have heard this advice before, perhaps your parents told you to think every time you got stuck in a problem. The society link thinking with intelligence and engraved the idea that “ the more you think the smarter you are“. which is nothing but a myth. What if I told you that thinking is actually stupidity. A certain degree of thinking is healthy but if crossed it become overthinking and distract you from the reality, as if you’ve jumped into a dream world of your thoughts. The disadvantage is that you become limited by the bubble of thoughts. kind of like mentally moving in a circle, You fail to think out of the box.
Is the thinking the only function of the brain?
No, the brain is not made only to THINK. indeed thinking is not suppose to be done all day long. In situations where thinking it’s require, thinking must be put to use. Other times it’s best to stop thinking. When you don’t think you finally shift into the NOW. you become fully present at the moment. This shift in focus open the door to creativity. Thus you find your greatest ideas in the shower or while taking a walking etc. Physical activities help rest the mind and turn your focus outward (from the mind into the body), so you don’t think. Instead you feel every inch of yourself and the world around you in action. In other words, you Bec one ALIVE. Albert Einstein once said _“I think 99 times and find nothing. I stop thinking, swim in silence, and the truth comes to me”
NO THINKING = FULL CONSCIOUSNESS
I can’t strop thinking!! and I don’t know what to do when I’m not thinking?
it’s impossible to know the state of consciousness when you are thinking about it. You should just experience it then you will discover the mystery. Certainly you will find it difficult at first. What I usually do to easily shift my focus, is concentrating on something outside of me. like my breathing , sound, the silence in-between the sound, the environment or even on one of my organs. Once I’m successfully present in the now. I simply reflect (observing the surrounding) or imagine ( use my creative imagination). Conscious is like a muscle , it needs practice in order to master it. So try to shift your focus regularly during the day. Catch yourself if possible when you’re unconscious and turn yourself into a conscious state of being. With time you will find yourself more conscious than you were before.
Due to my experience, I found that fake people vary in degrees of fakeness. So you find a person who’s fake yet not very harmful, while another is super toxic in nature. Why? Because of the materialistic society we live in. Social media encourages people to become FAKE. It brain washes them with immortality. Thus nowadays everybody is infected with a degree of fakeness.
How to spot a fake person? As i mentioned before, fake people are with levels of fakeness, so they might have some of these trades and not all. The people who’re slightly fake are harder to spot than toxic people. Signs of fake people;
1. Attention seeker; A fake person is always hungry for attention and drama. It have to do with his/her ego nature.
2. Showing off all the time; again this subconscious attitude is done by the ego and sense of being incomplete or less than others.
3. They only respect people with power; here where they ” PLAY DIRTY”! Fake people are manipulative experts and super target focused. If they want something from you, they will do anything to get you to like them. It’s also called being TWO FACED or USING OTHERS .
4. They’re a gossiping machine; Fake people love to gossip. They have a sneaky communication habit, Which is not expressing their opinion honesty or directly.
5. They criticize others to make themselves look good. Fake people are very ego based. They’re unable to love or care for anyone other than themselves. They just think of themselves as superior to everyone.
6. They have a big mouth; Fake people will be the first to give promises and big words, yet do nothing at all. They love playing the HERO or Painting a perfect image of themselves .
7. They’re very reactive; Fake people react over everything! They often look for drama and conflicts. So you might find them a little too nosy.
For more understanding on the nature of fake people, Read my blog ” Who’s in control, you or your ego“.
As soon as we give birth, our mindset shift from “ free ” to “responsible “. As if a heavy weight is dropped on our shoulders. The ego find this an opportunity to grow! It fool us into defining us with the parenting role. Thus a mother will play the mother role on her child and gets extremely angry if her child doesn’t follow along. It’s not just a role for her! it’s her identity. WHO SHE IS, in other words who she think she is! Obviously this creates a lot of problems within a family. Parents clinging on their children’s freedom, Abusing and unfairly dealing with issues… all under the role of “parents”. Unfortunately, this might cause serious damage of the child’s personality. Such as being irresponsible, indecisive or lacking a personality all together. In some severe cases the child might never recover from playing the role of a ” child “.
Parents! I understand the profound love you’ve for your children. Yet true love can never be expressed through the ego. The ego always seek conflicts to validate itself. The role of a parent is nothing more than a tool for the ego to stay alive inside you and keep you attached. Inaddition the superior parent role creates a boundary between the child and his parent. Infact, any relationship that include the ego is inauthentic.
If you really love your child and concerned about him/ her, ask yourself these questions every time you catch yourself playing the role of parenting.
1. Did I like it when my parents did ( your reaction to the situation) this to me ?
2. Is their a better way I can deliver my message ?
3. Who is the better teacher experience or what I’m going to say right now ?
4. What’s the worst case scenario of this situation ?
5. Is my actions and words showing love or the opposite?
6. Do i really want my child to become the best? And is the “best” other than himself ?
You can still be a parent without playing the role of a parent! Give your child love. Give them care & knowledge but through friendship. Become their life supportive companion and not a superior parent. The best thing you can do is to be YOURSELF. Be real. ONLY REAL THINGS CAN INFLUENCE OTHERS. Let life teach them! yes, I understand you dont want your child to do the same mistakes you’ve done. But let’s be real; did you learn through experience or words ? Don’t forget that your experience made you into who you are today. So please! give your child SPACE…Let them be, experience and grow. SPACE is truly the most thing they need. Let go of your attachment Now! for the sake of your children.
The good will come to you, if you’re patient enough. Patience is hard yet it assures you with a huge reward. Becoming patient is not any kind of superpower, it’s indeed easy. The difference between a patient person and a non-patient or reactive person, lies in the mind. He who’s aware of the flow of life will tend to be patient. He understands that within every situation there’s the part (for you ) to deal with & the uncontrollable part (for god). Use your part wisely and accept the rest. Acceptance is the door way to acquiring patience.
Things will fall into place if you just wait. Relax and trust God. You dont have a strong faith? Pray. Praying will help you surrender to the situation more easily . In addition will give you the feeling of control which is also called stability in the spiritual language.
For betterment seek alignment with positivity. Higher your vibrational state from worried and impatient to, happy and accepting. Your positive state of being will grow and attract more positive things! Things that you didn’t ask for or imagined.
So you are depressed! Let me ask you a few questions before you scroll down. Why are you depression? ..Do you actually care about the “thing” that made you depressed? Do you think you can control your life & your depression?
Often people say “You can’t control what happen in the externally, but you can control what happens internally ” what if I told you “you can control both”. The external reality is a reflection of your inner state of being. When you get your inner self healed, the external world will automatically align. The only reason you’re depressed is because you’re focused on the negative. WHAT YOU FOCUS ON YOU SHALL FIND.
The truth is there’s no good or bad, instead everything is neutral by nature. Our mind is the instrument that define good and bad. When your mind patterns is defining everything as BAD no wonder why you’re depressed! Negative thinking patterns produce negative low emotions, such as sadness, depression, anixity and madness..etc These emotions then create a reaction and the reaction set your reality. You’re reaction controls the event, the event doesn’t control your reaction.
To clarify, The reaction you give is the product of an emotion . the emotion is born from a certain mindset or what we call a perspective on life. It’s like a chain reaction where one thing drag the rest. For example when you’re stuck in a traffic jam you can simply enjoy the sunset view ( turning this moment into joy) or dwel on the fact that you’re stuck in the crowd.
The key to happiness is to look at everything as it is. With a neutral perspective. No judgment. Exactly how Shakespeare said ” NOTHING IS GOOD OR BAD BUT THINKING MAKES IT SO “. This is the absolute reality. No situation is either good or bad, instead our thought is what define every situation. When you start perceiving things from a neutral perspective you will realise the sense of ease, because you’re accepting the situation as it is. which will allow energy to flow.
