Empower your mind….set it free ( contd.)
If you read the previous post you must have been able to figure out by now the common connection between all the great people I talked about.
It’s the freedom of their mind and their thoughts that made them so powerful that it lead them through the long road of obstacles and opposition to achieve what they desired.
Freeing your mind, is like unlocking the gates to a dozen bulls at the Pamplona bull run. You unleash a power that is beyond you… in all senses of the word. It’s like unlocking the very force that can run or ruin your life. For what if your mind goes of on a destructive tangent and nothing is the same anymore? What if your view of your universe changes irreversibly? What if you know so much you can’t fit in anymore?
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. So is a lot.Albert Einstein
That’s exactly, why societal conditioning in the modern era have emphasized the so called importance of what is right, what is wrong, what is immoral and what is unethical. Hear me out here, it’s not what you think. The principles of peace and humanity exist but the concept of morality is very closely tied to the intellectual capabilities of the society at the time. In the time of Copernicus, it was ghastly to think that the Earth revolves around the Sun. At the same time, not very long ago, the minimum age to get married in societies were just unthinkable, they were at the pre teen level and that was perfectly normal and acceptable.
Is it in the best interest of the higher good, for raising the general baseline levels of societal functioning and thought by enforcing uniformity or is it to orchestrate better control?
And somewhere all of these mechanisms, became interspersed with religious adaptations and that was the end of the ‘free mind’ as could have been known to man!
A very important question to ask is what is ‘freedom’ to the average person? By the definition of the word, it is the ability for a person to choose form themselves. Those independent choices may or may not be in coherence with the general consensus. However, let’s say in these modern times, (and I’m giving the example of a friend) I as a female am happy performing household chores and looking after children and helping my husband stay organized, it is my freedom to be that way. Theoretically, you could be a feminist and decide working a full time job isn’t for you. Practically, this becomes difficult because you’d probably end up lonely. Other ‘feminists’ just won’t like your idea. They may feel you’re letting them down. It’s the same way for any other non conformist.
Setting your mind free is not about that though. It’s about accepting that YOU are what your mind IS and your mind is what you ARE. Simply put, your thoughts build your self and your self builds your thoughts!
You do not have to control or ‘break in’ your mind, that’s alienating it from yourself. You alienate it from your self and your mind will never fully work for you even if you are able to pipe down the thoughts that pop in unwanted or get it to focus on things you want.Tweet
They could unleash the true power of their mind.
The true power of their thoughts.
Because they weren’t afraid!
Don’t try to tame your mind into submission, it’s like driving a Bugatti Veyron at 40mph!!!
If anything, learn how to drive that Bugatti. It’s the greatest gift you could have ever had. You don’t know it for the moment perhaps because they’ve convinced you otherwise.
Why is it that very few people are able to realize this power in this lifetime?
Some answers are so simple you never really think about them. You keep on looking out instead for something complex to fill that gap while the answer you needed was staring at you in the face all the while.
