Look Beyond the Mirror

October 31, 2013 Leave a comment

Life tends to be a reflection of what we see or what we perceive. Depending on different aspects discussed in this article, then one can see the world or just one part of it. Our achievements then tend to be related to what we do with what we see in the mirror of life.

Any mirror that is before us has its properties and different aspects, however its view is limited to its position, cleanliness, shape, substance, size and the person looking into it. When one stands before the mirror your view of the world is through your eyes but also through what the mirror is able to show. A simple analogue is the review mirrors in a car, they will only show you as much as they can, depending on the same things noted (position, cleanliness, shape, substance, size, viewer) but does not mean they are showing you everything. So your decision in your driving might be correct or wrong, as they may be a blind side you don’t see, or the angle being used makes you think that the cars behind you are either slow or fast, or the mirrors can be so dirty you cannot make out how far any car is or even if it is there depending on the positioning of the mirror. This is the same in life.

In one way we see the world through people’s experiences or their presence. There is nothing wrong in that but then what we forget that these people are also just mirrors for which their reflection of the world is limited to their position in society, cleanliness of heart, shape in dealing with life, substance of things achieved, size of their ambitions and values. As much as their opinions are important, remember, beyond the mirror is a world full of many possibilities and even greater mirrors which can see even more.

In another way we tend to see the world through education, learning and programming. We are taught mathematics, history, languages, economics, sciences and arts of which these are mirrors which we then use to see the world. However we also must not forget that each of these subjects is but a limited mirror limited by the level of knowledge in discovery. In some cases the science is wrong, the history is biased, the languages are limited, the economics is not empowering, the mathematics is limiting and the arts is misleading. Education is good but it also is just a limited mirror. You must look beyond the mirror; some have gone beyond education to achieve great things.

Another mirror which we use is the mirror of headlines. Daily there is one headline or another which force us to rethink what we see in life. We hear rumors of wars and see evidence of it but this is not the full world this is but a part of it. When we are exposed to one set of news we tend to forget that they are other possible news that can exist or which can be made to exist. History makers are not people that live by headlines they are people that make the headlines. If you look through the headline mirror then be sure to be the one who is making the headlines.

The last mirror in this article but surely not the last mirror in existence is the emotions that we feel. Your emotions can be deceiving; the heart can be the greatest deceit of all, who knows what is in the heart? The thing is, sometimes your heart tells you to be angry in situations where you should not be, or to react in a situation where you should simply be responding. Some have quit their jobs, killed their spouses, robbed people, quit their dreams, married the wrong people, laughed when they should have kept quiet, spoke when they should have shouted, loved when they should have hated and the list goes on. Look beyond your emotions and you will achieve greater things.

Learn to look beyond the mirrors around you, you might just have more time than you thought you had or less time. Act quickly but there is an even greater mirror in life which is a secret to many. Which mirror is that you ask?
1Co 13:12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall fully know even as I also am fully known.

Four Reasons Why World Peace is Impossible with Humans

October 15, 2010 6 comments

For the past thousands of years there has always been talk of world peace and how all humans can one day live in peace. World peace is possible but not one which is orchestrated by humans. There are many reasons why but in this article we will look at the four fundamental reasons which no matter what humans do, they can never change them hence absolute world peace is impossible.

The first reason is that humans die. The very fact that death exists means that as long as it is there, there will never be world peace. Each person that is born is born unique with individual ideas, as time goes depending on their level of acceptance they can then learn to live with all people or to antagonize with everyone. If eternity existed eventually everyone would out of experience realize that peace is the wisest thing to have so world peace would be finally possible when all people have been reached. Now as it is, each time a new generation comes it has to learn out of experience before it can accept certain philosophies of life. Some people take five years to learn, some take a life time and some only realize it on their death beds. With each new born baby there is always that possibility that another Hitler can be born and with each new death there is a level of knowledge and experience which dies. People will learn overtime and gain experience on how to be good eventually but because they die they also go with their understanding and wisdom; consequently their peace also.

 The second reason is that humans are the active cause of word instability. Whether there is an invisible force, the devil, demons, aliens or whatever it is you may believe in, the truth is that at the end of the day humans are the ones who implement the inspiration of evil into reality. Einstein said that a problem started at one level cannot be solved at the same level, with reference to humans, because they are the ones that implement the problems they thus cannot solve the problems from that level. As long as people try to solve problems from a human point of view they will never achieve absolute solutions. Problems start because people see from one angle but solutions can only be found by people who see from all absolute angles. As humans we can only solve our problems if we start looking at them from a different level, like a heavenly level.

The third and most important reason is that humans have no idea who they are. If we understood our own nature, there would be no wars or instability in the world. Instead of understanding that we are fearful and wonderfully made, we see ourselves at the same level as jungle animals where the rules shift over time and the strongest is the one who will survive. Instead of recognizing that we are the image of God who is absolute we see ourselves as biological beings hence we are only three dimensional in our views.

The fourth reason is really the most obvious but is ignored, instability is not something that you touch hence cannot be solved by physical means. In other words, evil cannot be killed off, evil is an abstract idea, it is inspiration, it is thought, it is feeling, it is an existence which at the physical level we have no idea of. When we are trying to create world peace in our fooled minds all we are saying is that we want a physical peace yet there can be physical peace but there can be a war going on in our minds. As long as we do not recognize that that problems begin in the imagination we will always flood the world with problems. Different forms of floods will always occur on earth because of our actions. What we see on earth is not evil but the reflection of peoples imaginations.

As a person you can pray for world peace but as long as these four things remain there will be no absolute world peace. All you can do as a person is pray to make a difference in the world. However there is a solution.
