Practicing mind expansion in the form of Personal Development empowers Good Humans. Enabling them to not only live a contented, fulfilled life, but to contribute to creating a Good World.
History informs us that the majority of individuals who spent time on this Planet lived a life of either physical or spiritual deprivation and anguish. Many suffered both. Material wealth made little difference to spiritual contentment. Confused minds reigned supreme. Literally.
Confused minds still call the shots in many Societies around the World today. When told to jump by these confused minds, the confused masses under their control don't even ask “How high”? They just jump.
Throughout history and continuing in the present day, with a few notable exceptions, if the intimidated have the courage to resist domination it usually takes the form of violence.
Indulging in violence merely deepens the already desperate
predicament of the oppressed, drawing attention to their inability to direct their minds to
think constructively and find equatable solutions to their lack of freedom.
This description may sound hypercritical and tongue in cheek, but none the less, it reflects reality.
This is the world we live in and the only way it will change is when Good Humans consistently do Good things.
Doing Good things is synonymous with doing the Right thing. While much Good is done in many places, it is not consistent. We Humans tend to vacillate from one extreme to the other. Demonstrating a lack of knowledge, and understanding, of what we are attempting to achieve, and how to achieve it.
All competent leaders display the not merely desirable, but essential to success trait of consistency.
When Good things get translated into Good politics, by Good leaders, at the behest of Good people, we advance the Human race. It is in this manner that we make lasting, dignified progress. And it emphasizes the necessity of developed individuals working together in complete Harmony. Good Humans at their very best.
Personal Development imparts a power of breath taking proportion to the practitioner. It is this breath taking power that allows us to be consistent in all our actions. No wavering, no vacillation. We have discovered the knowledge and possess the means to resolve problems and avoid extremes.
The World is full of that anguish mentioned above. Our responses to this environment of anguish, both from victim and perpetrator, indicate we don't have a clue how to resolve our woes.
Even a brief study of History vindicates the perception that much of both leaders and followers behavior has been, and still is, founded in ignorance.
And the violence ignorant behavior spawns.
This philosophy of Personal Development offers a sound, reliable vehicle to transport Humanity to a communal place of peace and tranquility. Meaning the World. But it begins in the mind of the individual.
That means you and me.
Shying away from the destruction we have allowed to come about, excusing misbehavior as “Just being Human” is equivalent to deception. That is, we are deceiving ourselves.
Deception, in common with superstition, and belief in the supernatural, contribute nothing to Personal Development.
And by extension World prosperity.
On the contrary, these three absolute hindrances, along with other obstacles, a long list, beginning perhaps, with selfishness, are prime targets to demolish on the road to achieving higher planes of thought.
Thinking on a higher plane of thought creates a state of mind wherein we can influence our own Evolution for the expression of Good.
At the same time eliminating forever, lower plane thinking. That root cause of all our past, and present, afflictions and woes.
To the mind that is ready to change, or is in the process of change, possessing ready acceptance of the fact that as individuals we are responsible for developing our own Mind Power - that it won't happen unless we unconditionally accept that responsibility – this demolition becomes an enjoyable game of some urgency, entered into with gusto and alacrity.
Yes, Personal Development is Joyful!!
Being self reliant is Joyful. Being a competent problem solver is Joyful. Learning is Joyful. And that is how we develop our Mind Power: By learning, understanding, and applying our knowledge for Good. In an ever increasing virtuous cycle.
Good Humans, by understanding and sharing the same beneficial philosophy of working as one with Nature - and each other - can shape the World into a place where threats from our predatory fellows cannot exist.
Good Humans Rock!
Next - A Peaceful World
