For those who pay attention, it will be noticed that there is a huge inconsistency in the world. Many people are deluded about a lot of things and are acting in opposition to what is logically consistent.
For example, there seems to be a disproportionate number of people who are meeting their demise lately, but no matter who it is, people are confident, based on their condolence comments, that the person is going to “heaven.” This includes people who would be known as “trouble-makers” while alive.
People do not stop to think that “heaven” will not accommodate car-jackers, backbiters, murderers and so many others who have created mayhem on Earth, if, indeed, “heaven” is a reality.
Another example of illogical behavior is demonstrated by those individuals who are so deluded that they actually believe former president Donald J. Trump was the best president ever, and that those who stormed the capital on January 6, 2021, were mere “tourists.”
Basically, the problem is that a lot of people are not thinking logically, and have unrealistic expectations that are counter to their actions. One of these is the notion of “freedom” among people who are not doing anything to ensure that it is achieved.
When considering the foregoing, it becomes evident that there is a great divide; a split between the idea of mind over matter. How we think and what we do lays the foundation for all of our outcomes, and when these are not in sync, chaos results.
Black people, in particular, need to understand this great divide. For example, some resent the use of the word ni**er” by white people, but use it constantly among themselves and in public media, making it available for all to hear.
Likewise, those who commit heinous crimes in the Black community are often not blamed for their actions; condolences are publicly sent to families, and teddy bears, flowers and more are deposited at the locations where people lost their lives to violence, but people in the community who know the identities of the perpetrators refuse to reveal that information.
All of this points to the idea that freedom will not be available to us as long as there is a schism between mind and matter. The idea of freedom requires that mind and matter are in sync in order for manifestation to occur.
And just what is freedom? According to the Oxford Languages dictionary, freedom is “the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint.” A second definition is “an absence of subjection to foreign domination or despotic government.”
The problem with acquiring either or both of these forms of freedom is dependent upon how we think and what we do as a result. If people continue to think that they can act in exact opposition to what is mentally required for success, so-called freedom will never be achieved.
The newly deployed James Webb Space Telescope is opening up new vistas and is enabling humanity to see the universe with a clarity that has not been possible before. Mankind is becoming aware of the vastness of existence. This will hopefully result in the realization among the human family that our collective destiny will ultimately depend upon what we do and how we think in the here and now!
New discoveries in quantum physics are revealing a startling truth: that it is really quite possible that our lives are scripted by how effectively we are able to repair our mind/matter rift. In other words, when we focus on what we want to achieve and then act in accordance with our mental assertion, we can achieve our goals.
This idea can be applied to the notion of freedom.
All around us, there are examples of the efficacy of this strategy. For example, although economic success is not the only gauge to measure success, the existence of 15 living Black billionaires does demonstrate that there are Black people who have discovered the secret to making their dreams come true. They have been able to ensure that their actions are in sync with their ideas!
The formula for success, therefore, is for people to identify a goal and make sure their actions are in line with their ideas, with their thoughts, with their mind’s wishes regarding that goal.
This is how freedom must be attained, and it’s unrealistic to think that it will be acquired without considering both elements of the process, i.e., the mind and physical activities toward the accomplishment of the goal. A Luta Continua.
