For a very long time we have been made to believe that to succeed you must be allowed to or that to prosper you must have an intermediary. That is not true; we are all on this earth for a purpose that is not at the behest of any human.
This has led to the scarcity mentality that has created greed, which has in turn led to betrayal, and even sacrifice of colleagues, relatives, friends and even family in the pursuit of these \’limited\’ opportunities.
People are recruited into this evil and wicked design at times just to appear successful while they wait to be allowed onto the high table. We have to liberate the soul from this wickedness before we can liberate the mind from this mentality.
We must start by accepting that we are not here by chance or by mistake, there is a grand plan and there is always a reason for everything. If you believe in God then you must be in awe of his sheer brilliance in putting this universe together.
If you believe in this brilliance then you will also believe that the same God cannot possibly put you on this planet with deficiencies. We all have greatness within us, we just need to dig a little deeper to find it. The tough part is breaking the victim mentality in us. We do not owe our success to anyone – the same applies to failure.
It is therefore evil for you to accept that you are not as good as… That is a fallacy; we all have our role to play in the mosaic that is life. Those that have gotten to the high table want to exclude everyone else from it, forgetting that they too didn’t get there easily. Some have had to sacrifice even their families to earn a spot here. We don’t have to sacrifice anything but rather to look inside us for that purpose and go for it.
Why should we accept that there is a pre-ordained hierarchy? If that is the plan then why were we born equal is all aspects. As far as I am concerned the only limitation to anyone is of his or her own making. We all have a role to play in our lifetime and on the most part we all must strive to leave this world a better place than we found it. After all isn’t a day 24 hrs for everyone?
This change must start from the individual, I have been undergoing this change for the past 34 years, and just like the caterpillar dies an ugly death to give rise to a beautiful butterfly – so has been the process for me. And I am still evolving.
