‘The Power of Your Subconscious Mind’
From ‘The Power of Your Subconscious Mind’:
“Look around you. Wherever you live, whatever circle of society you are a part of, you will notice that the vast majority of people live in the ‘world-without.’ Those who are more enlightened, however, are intensely involved with the ‘world-within.’ They realize – as you will, too – that the world within creates the world without. Your thoughts, feelings, and visualized imagery are the organizing principles of your experience. The world within is the only creative power. Everything you find in your world of expression has been created by you in the inner world of your mind, whether consciously or unconsciously…Most people try to change conditions and circumstances by working on those conditions and circumstances…They fail to see that their conditions flow from a cause. To remove discord, confusion, lack, and limitation from your life, you must remove the cause. That cause is the way you use your conscious mind.”
Is the power in you? Or is it in the white man, patriarch, slavemaster, or CEO? Bemoaning their power and how they use it doesn’t increase mine or yours. Nor does it get us what we say we want, does it?! Look around…
Muhammed Ali is the personnification of using the power of the mind to achieve. Ali told himself he was the greatest and would be heavyweight champion, probably hourly, from before puberty. Over and over again this man told himself and the world what he would achieve. The caterpillar became a shifty, stinging butterfly, the Champ, the ‘Greatest of All-Time.’
He corrected the faulty thinking that most of us ALLOW to flow in our craniums without correction. I say, ‘correct dat shit.’ Turn that cesspool into a pristine pond. Don’t allow any unsupportive, fallacious weeds to grow in your/my mental gardens. Oh, HELL NO!
What do you want to achieve: Peace? Social Justice? Racial healing?
It can be done – but it starts within. And that internal game is ongoing…it ain’t evah ova!
Instead of mixing the ‘world-without’ in your virgin eggnog, slurp up that distilled thought that only you control.
“I CAN’T BE BEAT!!”
