Balancing “ACT” indeed. Life should not be a staged play for the abused or the pacification of others. Don’t allow the dangling of a “golden carrot” to mislead or corrupt your destined path. In this, the blind would be a reflection of a failed society, not living up to their blessed potential. True balance is within IQ+EQ+SQ which results in the sum total of one’s 3Q. Innergize your life Mind. Body & Spirit!
Golden carrot? Can you remember the picture of the farmer dangling a carrot in front of the horse to pull the wagon? The horse works seemingly all day chasing the reward of the carrot, only to be controlled by another’s personal gain or intent. Question, are you following your dreams or someone else’s carrot? Are you following money, power and respect but deviating from your path of true life fulfillment? Balance your mind and you’ll find that your greatness is worth more than all the gold in the land. INNERGIZE!
The purpose of man’s life is to tend the garden of earth. It is our “life’s work” to make suitable the land for God’s greatest creation; the woman. For within the woman holds a blessed covenant, hidden from man which is the essence, the purpose and meaning of life. She is the breath! Heaven on earth walks amongst us, for eternity dwells within her heart. Love her unconditionally and tend your purpose well; man above men.
(Responding to a thought leader on social media, I was asked “how can we master mind over matter?” This was my response).
To master “mind over matter” we must first define or try to clarify the differences between people’s ideas, understandings and knowledge of the terminology (matter & mind). To clarify “people’s anything,” is to first accept the limitations of others thought processes, socioeconomic upbringings and cultural/environmental influences.
That said, we cannot fully speak on another’s understanding. What we CAN do, is deduce how we (individually) on a personal/spiritual level, relate to the awareness and teachings of universal laws. In this relies the first step to mastering “mind over matter.” Consider the terminology first:
Matter: Regarding what we acknowledge as particles, combined elements and physical substances that takes up mass or space within this reality.
Mind: A fragment of consciousness which holds an eternal power that transcends “all” physical substances i.e. matter.
For instance, your temple/body is presently in the form of a solid matter. It has weight, it takes up a certain amount of space and is the sum total of atoms, chemicals and biological elements that’s conducive to the sustainability of life.
Although the body exists of solid mass and mass defines as “matter,” human beings possess the ability to communicate or transcend out of its mass by way of speech, vibration, thought process, belief, emotion and faith.
The other terminology differs as such, “Matter” is used as a factual statement or circumstance, often as conclusion within interpersonal communication, i.e. “as a matter of fact, in my opinion politics is a distraction.”
Getting back to the body, the body has limitations but the clarified mind is free! If one could tap into the power of the mind, they’d possess the ability to master “mind over (all) matter” but this is not the way of the world. Most people spend the best of their lives trying to master others, trying to master money and ultimately trying to master life itself.
This attempt or understanding of mastery is rhetorical and frivolous at best. Life was not created for the idealization of man to master but rather live and flourish within the environment given. This is why the eagle captures the snake.
The eagle has no limitations of mind within its environment, clarity or purpose. Hence, the eagle by way of embedded instincts, has mastered “mind over matter”.
(Here’s what I didn’t say)
Obviously, we as human beings are embedded with intuition, spiritual gifts, wisdom, great purpose and much more but we (most) do not follow the course or purpose of our creation. Unlike the tree, the insect or animal (yes, they all have consciousness), humans are the only species on this planet to be led or choose to leave their God given purpose or path in search of idealistic wonders, desires and or riches. In this, one cannot master mind over matter nor environment or even self, being one has opted out of his/her created purpose. Can a fish master the land? Can a bird master the ocean? No, and I’m sure they don’t care to being the environment is not conducive to either’s created purposes. And here’s the thing, man has dominion over the animals within the land and sea, but fails terribly when it comes to the mastery of self. In conclusion, let’s ponder for a moment, why even ask the question “can we master mind over matter,” because if we could, we’d probably corrupt, destroy or monetize it as with all other attempts to control God’s natural resources. Think about it.🤔
“As of 2019, instead of investing on ads, marketing tools and master classes, I’m going to help, raise up and invest in my family and friends . . .” And also “If I do this correctly as well as faithfully, I expect to get kicked off of social media sometime this year!”
Here’s the update, the return in family, friends and community has been absolutely mind blowing! No money gained but my goodness the rewards of health, wealth and opened doors are that of miracles!
Clearly social media hasn’t deleted me yet, but I can tell I’ve peaked the algorithm’s interest! It’s all a chess game now and even though they own the pieces, I/we hold the table, which upholds the game board.
And at any given time, we can fold up table, visit each other, write a letter, shake hands, meditate or give a speech (per our constitutional right), without censorship or targeting of collective media bargaining. In this no *OI (outward intelligence) can chart your course, manipulate your mind or simulate you future. ✅ mate
Think about it, don’t share, text, post or speak of it; just think.🧐
“To empower her is to honor God and the very essence of life. As fathers, yes we are to protect, sacrifice and love our families, but never, ever forget to be vulnerable enough to empower God’s greatest creation, the woman.”
Me: a shared interpretation that coexist by the acknowledgment of you and I, based solely on the outward characteristics that I display.
Myself: Who I believe to be as a result of cultural, societal and environmental impact. Thus, collectively embracing and filtering through the experiences of life, opinions and acceptances.
You: You are a reflection of collective thoughts, actions and displayed personality traits others or I perceive and accept to be true, but often manipulated by the shadows of insecurities or fear.
If this is true even somewhat, It beckons the question, who’s reflecting who? Does it explain the cliche “beauty is in the eye of the beholder?” Does it shed light on who we look up to, dislike or model in behavior?
This is why It’s so vitally important to love yourself, because to truly love others and become the greatest version of yourself, you must first embrace your worth!
Otherwise, your perceptions of negative self will reflect upon the world, the society in which you live and the people closest to your dreams, goals and lifestyle.
In short, do you want the attraction of abundance, success and or acceptance? Then change any form of negative reflections from within and start by loving yourself first, not money, nor power or the control of others. Upon this you can faithfully build and receive upon your blessings. Do not thwart the very purpose of your existence.
This is but one of many reasons we’re instructed to “love thy neighbor” (Matt 22:39 KJV) and to “do unto others, as you’d have them do unto you.” (Luke 6:31 KJV)
With that said, if one’s actions, displayed characteristics or personality traits are truly a reflection of self, then the world is not to blame, but rather the enemy from within i.e. me, myself and I not you, they or them. In this, the law of attraction can throughly be explained within the reflection of one’s self worth.
To be awakened, is far more frightening than your worst nightmare clawing into reality. Being enlightened doesn’t equate to a leisurely walk in the park. What we believe is love, couldn’t be farther away from the truth and money is without doubt, the second greatest lie. The law of attraction is the dangling of a golden carrot, yet serves great purpose and mindfulness is an internal stroll within the valley of the shadows. The more you learn the less you know, until being becomes the precedence of your life. Awake; quietly.
Did you know the shortest distance between you and the barrier of your fear, perception or wall, is forward straight through? To stop and ponder the shear greatness of its height, darkness of depth or vastness of width only beckons worry, which then becomes the mass of one’s perceived reality.
Make yourself small, submit within the humbleness of your breath and walk through the darkness of manifested doubt. In this begins the filtration of the spirit, passing through the valley of the shadow of your deepest fears. Heed not your feet, lest the mind begins to wonder. And remember the promise, for on the other side awaits the light of glory.
Otherwise, peace be still until the calling of your heart screams so loudly, that it becomes the clarity of your spirit. Rise, rise and rise again just as you are! Now walk, stumble or crawl into the light of your created purpose.
Know this to be true, being once upon seemingly an eternity “I was here!” Said my message on the wall, but by the grace of God’s mercy, not for long.
You have 24 hours to call and share a heartfelt conversation with each and everyone of your social media contacts/friends (separately)! Don’t leave a message, utilize interpersonal communication!
1.) Start with family members 2.) Friends 3.) Neighbors 4.) Coworkers 5.) Members of groups, church’s or the like. 6.) Those you’ve accepted from other countries. 7.) Lastly, the accepted requests just because they friended you or you friended them for shear numbers sake (i.e. “like for like! Help me reach 1000’s subscribers, followers or friends!)” GO!
Is it really about connecting with long lost friends, acquaintances/family or did the freedom of one’s social interest manifest into something more speculative? And try not to justify if you’re activity on social media comes with strings attached.
My 6 of 7 rule of thumb for the social psychological construct of media manipulation.
1.) I’m not paying for ads controlled by a so called algorithm, in which to continuously bombard my “friends” or family with marketing products, i.e. “for $31.00 you can reach up to 2,000 ppl. with this paid ad!” or “for $29.00 you can get a guaranteed 1,000 followers! 2.) I DO NOT accept friend requests for status, ideological or ego sake! Again, “I’m not looking for followers” to fund my ambitions. My purpose is not to entertain, distract or take from people. Thus, social media is not my spiritual, mental or moral support center (no entourage or cheerleaders needed). 3.) I will never share my most intimate of goals, life choices, prayers or breakthrough ideas on any social media platform; period! 4.) I’ll only share what God puts on my heart to inspire, intrigue or motivate others looking for humbled truth or unbiased encouragement. 5.) My opinions are mine alone in which to develop, share with thought leaders, strategize, meditate, pray over and align properly within spiritual/biblical wisdom. This as opposed to subjecting myself to the heterosuggestive onslaught of controlled debates, persuasions and media manipulation. 6.) I will not judge, use sarcasm, ridicule or openly challenge a person, group or page for their personal or factual perspectives regarding rhetorical matters of worldly propaganda.
So have you made any calls yet? Or did the autosuggestive barrier of personal opinion, rear its head to prevent a wake up call, revealing the REAL challenge!
*Here’s the thing, social media isn’t just about you, one’s celebrity status or kind heartfelt intentions of connectivity. It’s more about the manipulative focus of mass data retrieval for marketers and all hidden under the guise of 3rd party interests. Yes! It’s the world we live in but my goodness, are we that blind not to see that it’s our children that will suffer the most from this generations need to be seen, accepted or ego-massaged? Point is, our prayers are for God. Our hearts is for our families and those of need. And lastly, you have their number right? If they’re really friends; give them a call!
