Of all the books in the Bible, ecclesiastes remains my ever favorite; my go-to place for guidance, my fountain of wisdom, and the living words to focus my perspective…
It is the only book that has captured the realities of life to this day, even though it’s thousands of years old.
In the days to come, journey with us here to explore the recesses of your high mind. The words of Solomon in this book will let you examine the truth about everything that matters in life and death.
As always, please be free to share your high thoughts on any issue discussed here… sharing is caring 🙂
If maturity is not measured by age, why do we put an age limit on so many societal functions?
I think one of the greatest realizations of this age is that democracy is overrated. You can’t successfully build a house when every nail has an opinion. Every societal Ill you see today is a by-product of the broken system engineered by democracy in the 21st century.
In order to leave the world in a better place, sometimes you have to clean up other people’s mess… and perhaps it’s time we returned to that level of consciousness. Too long, we have sought to glorify individualism….Too long!
So many times, over and over again, we hear about the inevitability of change. How Change is neither good nor bad, rather it depends on how you adjust to it. And How change is often the foundation and motivation for growth and development.
So it comes as a bit of surprise to see people try so hard to resist it. What they cant seem to grasp is without change and the ability to change your mind, views and perspectives, you cannot progress in life.
Of course change is sometimes painful, but there is no greater pain in remaining where you are, knowing that you could always have been better. Sometimes you start to feel your confidence ebb away and begin to sound a retreat, but here are some famous quotes from world renowned men to get you through those fleeting moments of doubt.
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
“When in doubt, choose change.”– Lily Leung
“All great changes are preceded by chaos.”– Deepak Chopra
“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”– Albert Einstein
“By changing nothing, nothing changes.”– Tony Robbins
The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance. – Alan Watts
Finalyy, my two personal favourites…
It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change. Charles Darwin
Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.- Stephen Hawking
Now is not the time to doubt yourself, noow is the time accept what it is and adapt accordingly. The truth is, life will go on with or without you…
Remember, If you cannot change your mind, then you are not using it. stayy High
Not everyone will understand your journey. Thats ok. Youre here to live your life, not make everyone understand. Remind yourself that you dont have to do what everyone else is doing.
Remember, You cant fix yourself by breaking someone else
Lastly, We are often quick to blame society, WE ARE SOCIETY.
Stay High…Keep your head up.
It is a term originally coined by Stuart Kauffman, a brilliant complexity theorist. Basically, when someone comes up with a new idea, technology or platform of some kind, it makes a whole other set of new ideas imaginable for the first time. It says that part of the process of innovation comes from the consumer side of the equation. You can invent the telephone and put it out in the world and say, “This would be fantastic for you playing cello on one end and someone else listening to you playing cello on the other end,” but it gets out into the world and people start using it. They say, “That would be a terrible way of using the telephone. But it is really great for calling my grandmother.” That is always the case with technology when it gets unleashed into the world. People end up pushing it in directions that the inventors never dreamed of.
For example, Thomas Edison invented the phonograph to send audio letters, and Alexander Graham Bell intended for people to use the telephone to listen to live orchestra music. What does this say about innovation and unintended consequences?
So, however smart you may be, there is no way to invent air conditioning in the 1650s. You just can’t do it. There are too many fundamental ideas about physics, industrial engineering and electricity that just aren’t understood yet. There is no way to have that breakthrough. But what happens over the course of history is that as someone understands one thing and if someone else understands another thing certain ideas, inventions or technologies become thinkable. They become part of what Kauffman calls the “adjacent possible.
So in essence, you realize that the future is limitless and anything is truly possible if you will only free your mind. Never be discouraged, your ideas and imagination will definitely come true.
