I never watch the news neither do I care about what happens in the world I kind of see it as my own term of ignorance is bliss, In me not caring about the world and its problem I can focus my energy somewhere. Looking at the world with all its present chaos, need for information on the whereabouts of occurring problems and what is the government solution for it. many would have called me stupid for ignoring and not caring about the state of the world but this is what I know, no government or system can rid the world of its problem except the individual, the individual is the key to growth.
People hang on to this mindset that the government could be the only solution to the problem of the world, that the system can only be changed by the system, that whoever created the problem might fix it anyway but all this has ended up being a false hope to the masses.
Many of our problems are still with us, many of the issues concerning mankind still live with us and still impede and hurt us, the generation before us learnt to hope on organizational revolution and have marched along for revolution just to have these revolutionaries turn the people they were fighting against
I refuse to concentrate on the world, I refuse to believe in the fight of collectivity, I refuse to stand for any form of revolution against any anarchy because history has a long list of all that failing in the long term.
No growth comes from collectiveness without a proper structure of the individual, what good can happen to the building if the bricks used in building it were weak and inferior, you end up having a building that won’t last the test of time
The individual makes the community, the community makes the society and the society the state, for the state to work the individual needs to work first, for society to flourish its people must flourish.
The growth of any huge and fruit-bearing tree starts from the root. If I were to concentrate my focus on anything then surely it must start with the individual, if I were to think about changing the world (which I know I wouldn’t) then I sure must start with the individual
Now take an example and imagine all past revolutions we have experienced in the world and imagine that every individual that performed or fought in the victory were enlightened and both mentally and spiritually aware.
Imagine the people fought because they have attained a higher level of understanding among each other and have conquered themselves first and kept their vices in check
Imagine they all had the power to self-rule and the discipline to self-respect, imagine the leaders of this revolution not only wish to liberate the people from the anarchy they wished to be liberated from but also to liberate the people from their own negative living and thoughts, imagine if people kept themselves in check before trying to keep society in check
The collective consciousness must be influenced hard by the individual consciousness and influenced positively because without that the collective consciousness might be chasing and trying to solve an external problem while the internal problem is filled with dirt and soreness.
We have seen where leaders of a movement end up being worse than the system they fought against, We have seen people experience hard times then fight to get a good time then go back to hard times.
When you get down to the problem the collective consciousness was fighting for one goal but the individual consciousness was not united enough to sustain the collective consciousness
The self-development and mental enhancement of the individual bring huge development to the state, it is only when the people get better, that the state can get better.
let’s take a look at the countries with the highest rate of corruption, this corruption is not being carried by the state but the individuals of the state though we might come to say due to lack of good governance the citizen resulted to corruption and since there’s no consequences and grand punishment for this corruption, rate of it has eaten deep into the system
THE INDIVIDUAL AS A KEY TO GROWTH
Until the individual learns that he makes the state and the state doesn’t make him he will continue to hope on the government to help him do what he can do for himself.
The more he sleeps on himself the more he sleeps on his power and potential, the more he waste time listening to the news that was drafted to keep him asleep and uninformed (even though he feels he is getting informed) the more he continues to wish and keep waiting for someone to stand up to his oppressors
Without the knowledge of self nobody can contribute anything to society, though we might have a good patriot and caring citizen who abides by the rules of the state and does his own fair part of contribution to the states by paying of tax and creation of services
For true change to be a thing that last the individual of the state needs to know themselves deeply, the individual by searching deep into himself or herself finds answers the average person doesn’t come to get.
In searching deep into himself he can identify his shortcomings and know how he can work for the betterment of himself and collectively for the state
When the state has more individuals that create, prosperity in commerce and economics will flourish. when the individuals of the state focus on the creation aspect of life it will be easier for these individuals to create the kind of state everybody will love to live
The long term goal of the state will continue to flourish because the creation of the individuals will continue to bring in huge commerce into the state
For a state to be truly efficient and be the dreams of its people the individuals of that state need to harness a sharp decision making skills.
Imagine a revolutionary movement where all the leaders and followers have great decision-making skills that help drives them to a collective goal, not only will this decision making skill elevate the collective purpose but it will help the group not become what they were fighting against just like we have seen countless of time.
The individual coming into the realization of his influence on the state and how he is not just a stone but a brick that makes up a building will go into the action of sharpening and harnessing his decision making skill set and make a huge change in society
