Thinking Beyond Time and Space

April 26, 2011 Leave a comment

One of humanity’s greatest failures is failing to think beyond time and space and simply being linear. We base our lives on a time scale yet failing to grasp the substance of time and its purpose.

Time in its essence is simple a perspective standard adopted to normalize systems created for explaining human existence by measurement. The calendar that we use is simply an agreed standard and other calendars can still be made. What we measure as seconds and hours are not accurate but simply an aggregation of standard. It therefore suffices to say that time is still a measure of the rate of change and the occurrence of specific events. These changes can be biological or geographical but the one thing that does not fall under time is the mind yet we choose to think in time. If we measure time based on the rotation of the earth around the sun, when the speed of the earth slows down to half its normal rate of spin then time also changes when it is measured against this rotation. The days will become longer and the nights also. Instead of a twenty-four hour clock out time becomes longer. Yet if we were to measure time against biological change then if the rate at which people age were to suddenly stop then time would cease to exist biologically.

Our minds were never supposed to be measured by time. Time in its properties is linear in nature which is why we progress from one hour to the next; we never jump from one hour to three hours later because the clock is progressive. It is like a straight line which we travel with each consecutive step. The advantage in this is organization, predictability and control. Imagination on the other hand simply exits, it is what it is. It can come and go as it pleases like the wind in any direction and start wherever it wants. When we think in time our limitations become the same limitations that exist in time and our abilities the same that exist in time. For example if we think in time and adhere to it we are capable of a form of organization which is next to perfection where our things are progressive and we know when we are going to do things hence, predictability. It becomes easy to control society because there are standards created for, which only at certain times can people operate and achieve certain events. It becomes easy to construct events to occur at certain periods. However the limitations of time therefore also apply in that we have to adhere to seasons and times and become slaves to time. We then make our plans based on time hence the new year resolutions that have to wait for a new year, the babies that have to come at a certain age, the business that can only start after a certain season. We being to think in a linear way, yet out mind struggles with time because the mind was never meant to be linear it was meant to exist.

When our thoughts are linear and based on time we fail to invent and create. We then adopt perceptions which are not imaginative but simply logically. The best example of this is in the belief that the earth was flat. It made sense at that time that the earth was linear in form and that there would be an edge to which if you go too far one would fall off. Even though this was completely inaccurate the world’s greatest minds held strongly to this belief for so long that challenging this way of thinking was dangerous to one’s life. Most people are a reflection of thinking around the clock, they only think of ideas as being progressive and not imaginative. That is why most people will believe that one needs capital to start a business yet business is simply an idea, or that one needs an army to defeat a nation yet victory is when the mind surrenders, or that money is power yet power is just influence. The invention of the radio, televisions, airplanes, tea, sliced bread, perfume and everything else are not a result of linear thinking or time but of imagination and accepting possibilities. We do not live in one form of reality but in a world of incredible possibilities yet we still choose to model our world according to time only.

Solomon mentioned that there is a season and time for everything simply because for everything that exists there is a moment when events align such that you are able to do what is required not because there is a time when you can do things. It is not time that defines the outcome it is the events that define the time. The only reason one can harvest is if nature has played its part and you have a crop which is ready. You do not harvest because it is time, you harvest because the crop is there; so most people wait for things to happen instead of making things happen. They wait for situations to change yet they can change the situations. If you sit and wait for the time when all things will move to your favor it may never happen unless if you influence things to move to your favor. This is what makes the difference between entrepreneurs and employees. The entrepreneur knows that if they do not go out there and market or work to a certain level they will not have business and thus income, the employee on the other hands sits and expects that the salary will just come at the end of the month. The difference between the two is that the entrepreneur controls what will happen at the end of the month while the employee is controlled by the end of the month. The employee looks at the calendar and thinks simply because it is now says a certain date the salary arrives in the account because of the date whilst the entrepreneur knows the salary is now available because he or she created the events that led to the salary being available. When we understand this we will begin to live beyond time and space.

Our minds are not time oriented they are event oriented yet we choose time because someone created a standard to measure with. In the mind when you want to imagine a building you do not start by constructing the foundation, the walls, the doors the windows, rather you just imagine the house and everything appears. Faith works in the same way in that we create what does not exist before it exists, without being able to do this we cannot do anything. When you want to pick up something your mind first does the action then it is possible. Before undertaking anything you must first define the end before the beginning, the last shall be the first. Understanding your objective will help to understand the meaning which need to be undertaken to achieve that. People do not perish because they fail to think but rather they fail because they lack the knowledge on how to think.

No Two Stars Are The Same

April 22, 2011 Leave a comment

If two people stand together and they are looking at an object they will never see the same things. Each person sees from a different angle with a different perception. The same is true for any vision you have for your future.

At night there are many stars that we can see, think of these stars as the ultimate goals or the achievement of your vision. When you look into the sky you see the destination of your vision. Now the stars all seem close to each other yet in real distance measure they are light years away apart. Two people can stand together looking up into the sky, what they will see is two thousand stars out of a possible estimated, two hundred billion stars. They all see what seems like the same objective in the sky which is looking in the sky but it is not true. When you have a vision in your life you have a particular star that you want to reach. When you are standing and looking into the sky it as if you see all the stars but your goal is centered on a particular star. Achieving an objective may seem like a simply process of going up and reaching the star yet if you reach the wrong star you will be millions of lights years away from your objective. Two people can come together and they may seem like they are talking about the same thing yet they are looking at two objectives which are light years apart.

Whenever you start a project you must be involved in order to achieve the objective as you see it. You might find a person who believes in what you believe in, which is reaching a star but it does not mean that they are looking at the exact star you are seeing. When a space ship launches into the sky it looks as if it is heading to all the stars because all stars are in the sky so it may seem, yet as the spaceship moves it has to pinpoint the particular place it has to reach. Sometimes we launch our ideas with people and we leave people them in charge. When we launch our companies, organizations, and ideas we set out a mission and vision. We map out what needs to be achieved and then we find like minded people but what we must never forget is that no two pair of eyes is the same. Each pair of eyes sees things from a different angle and perception which is influenced by personal experience, fears, hope and faith. If we assume that a person sees the same vision as we do just because they are launching with us into space towards our star we will regret it because in space there is so much potential to reach any other place, which is why people’s ideas fail or are stolen.

When you have a vision of what you want to achieve, write it down and pursue that. Do not alienate yourself from the vision. Always be there to see how things are going. Everyday find out what is the progress, review what is being done until you are sure that the idea is being steered towards the right star. The same principle applies to raising children, running a football team, grooming a leader, running a country, and baking a cake. Two bakers can set out to bake a cake but the outcome may never be the same cake with the same proportions. The ingredients may be the same but the size, feel and taste will always be different. If there is one thing you must remember from this article it is that no two pairs of eyes see the same thing.

Do Not Confuse Rich and Happy

April 20, 2011 Leave a comment

A lot of people believe that the moment they have money they will be happy and rich at the same time. Yet being happy does not always depend on being rich but it does not mean that you cannot have both. Being happy actually depends on the natural order of things.

Now, there is nothing wrong in being rich but there is everything wrong in confusing being rich with being happy. A rich person can buy comedy but a happy person can posses the comedy. Happiness comes when we have peace of mind and can do the things we truly desire but it does not need money to do this yet money can make it possible for us to achieve doing the things we want. Now happiness is greater than being rich because being rich serves happiness. In other words being rich is a tool we use to serve happiness. At the end of the day the tool is a s good as the one who uses it. Money will never buy you salvation because that is not what it can buy. Money does not buy you peace it simple creates a temporary truce until other grievances come up. Giving everyone the same amount of money does not result in world peace it just stabilizes things until someone steals or creates more money than others.

The richest person in the world is not the one who had the most money at the beginning it is the person who took a risk and mastered their fear. Happiness is not in acquiring money but it is in existing in a world where things exist in their natural order. Money is your servant and not your master. You are only happy when things are operating as they should. The reason why we think money makes us happy is because we are mistaken. When we are poor and money is running us it makes us unhappy because the order of things is not correct. How can a prince be happy when his servants are the ones riding his chariots whilst he runs alongside? This is the same thing with us. When we do not have money it just means that the servant is controlling our existence which naturally makes us unhappy. We then think when we are rich we will be happy yet we can become rich and sad, simply because instead of realizing that when we are rich we are now the master of the money we still find ourselves slaves to the money. So it is common to meet a person who has everything they could ever want but still be a servant to money and hence they tell you they are not happy.

Yes, you deserve to travel; you deserve to go wherever you want because this is what your heart desires. A desire unfulfilled makes the heart sick. If the heart is sick then you will be unhappy. In life we all need to be rich and use being rich to serve happiness and not the other way round. If you think you need to be rich to be happy then you are still mistaken but it does not hurt to be rich.

What is Your Reality: Work Vs Family

April 20, 2011 Leave a comment

Would you define reality as the place of work or the family? Thinking about the answer could be a question of the chicken before the egg or the thought before the brain. Yet in everything in life there are no two things which have the same value which are not one.

The fact of the matter is we spend most of time at work. Could it be then that our personal lives are depended on our work? Could it be that the things we do in our personal lives are determined by the work we do? After all our salaries actually determine what we eat, what we drink, where we go and naturally what we do. It then becomes more natural to conclude that work is our foremost reality, yet is actually the other way round. Our work is not our reality it is just a reflection of our thinking and our goals in life.
A person spends eight hours at work sitting on a chair that does not belong to them, in an office which is not theirs, using a computer they do not own, cooling themselves from an air conditioner which is not theirs. Using toilets and sinks which are not theirs amongst other resources yet that same person goes on to think that work is their foremost reality. Some people are so comfortable at work they might once in a while prefer to be at work twelve hours a day and seven days a week. What they forget is that when it is all over and done they need to face up to the reality which is their personnel lives, thus their families.

Imagine if your job ended right now, would you be able to sit at home and be comfortable, think about the toilet you use at home, the sinks, the chairs, the air conditioner, the tables, the computers, the books, the internet, the family members, the house building, the space, the car, the time and all that you have at the place you call home; will all this be sufficient to make you comfortable or are you so comfortable in your work place more than your home. Most of us invest so much in our employment we neglect the family life. At the end we get divorced, are strangers to our children, and also wish we had more time yet we never took the time to invest in our personal lives.

Think of what you love in life and ask yourself what you have done lately. It is true that what we earn determines our lifestyles but it is even a greater truth to understand that what we value determines our career choices. For example if you love your family enough would you not invest your career in undertaking in activities which will enable you to invest in your family more? In other words do you choose a career to survive or you choose a career to make your family happy? The things that you are investing on today are a reflection of how much you value your life. If you spend most of the time drinking with your friends then clearly you value your friends more. Think of your life and calculate how much time you invest in your family and your personal life. Out of sixty years would you spend thirty years at work or would you spend thirty years with the family then everything else is divided between work and all other things.

So here is the question once more; is your foremost reality work or family? Are you selecting a career because you are ignorant on value or are you selecting a career because you love your family? The greatest investment any entrepreneur makes is at their home. This is why you find most people who are wealthy and own large businesses buy the best cars; their children attend the best education available, have the best holidays and of course can buy time. What is your reality or are you still confused?
