By The Prophet of Life
“You cannot control the universe.
You can merely react to it
Chaos is the natural order of things. Movements in the atmosphere cause
tornadoes and hurricanes. Rain causes floods. Movements in the earth
cause earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions. Disasters and
catastrophes happen. This is the natural order of things. Large numbers
of people die from natural and man made disasters. Diseases ravage the
planet. Large numbers of people die. Babies are born with birth defects,
children are orphaned. People are killed or maimed in accidents. Crops
die, livestock are wiped out, beloved pets and family members pass away.
We as human beings cannot control the chaos that happens in this
world. We can only control our reaction to it. Many wonder why God
abandoned them or their loved ones in their time of need. Some people
lose their faith as a result of things that they perceive God allowed to
happen to them. That is just their perception. In truth, God never
abandons anyone. How can God abandon anyone that is endowed with a
part of God? The body may pass away but the spirit does not. And the
part of God that is in each spirit removes the spiritual essence from each
living being from its body just before the pain of death takes hold. For
most, the spirit is conducted back to God.
It is true that everyone dies alone. Even those surrounded by loved
ones experience death in their own way, on their own terms but they make
the journey alone. The others are merely there to see them off. It is the
part of God that each of us has that removes the spirit from the body and
takes it on its journey back to God. It is only upon the removal of the
spirit that death actually occurs.
Where I go, you cannot. The path I follow is not one that you can follow.
It is unique unto me. The path you shall follow is unique unto you. The
path we each follow is determined by numerous factors. Some of these
factors are those we are born with. Others are those we choose freely.
We are born with a unique set of determining factors. We each have a
specific genetic makeup and a set of environmental circumstances. Each of
us is a particular size, shape, sex, has a particular color hair, eyes,
intelligence and genetically determined health. We are each born to a
particular family, of a particular culture, socio economic level in a particular
city and nation. We are all born into a particular time, hour, day, month, year,
decade and century.
Many of the determining factors we are born with are not changeable
until we are legal or financial adults, from 15 to 21 years after birth. The city,
nation family and socioeconomic level we are each born into are examples
of this. Others are not naturally changeable. We may be able to surgically or
cosmetically alter our hair color, eye color, and even sex. We may be able to
alter the genetic code in the womb to diminish or even eliminate a
disposition towards specific diseases. These cosmetic and surgical
alterations are open to error and therefore may not completely change a
determining factor. The determining factors of time that we are born into are
not changeable by us and we are not yet able to communicate an alteration
to our parents before we are born.
Our determining factors have a great deal to do with the person we
become. Our determining factors coupled with our environment and
experiences are, in essence, what makes us who we are. Our determining
factors and our environment can limit our experiences. Great people
throughout history have been born into a wide range of determining factors
and environments. Many of them were born into adverse circumstances but
overcame them. If however, they had been born in London during the
plague or in Hiroshima five minutes before the first H bomb dropped, their
greatness would have never been known because they wouldn’t have
survived longer than a few weeks at most. All who are born have the
potential for greatness. What is great to some is mediocre to others. The
greatness that is or is not achieved depends on personal preference and
what people do with what they are given.
Many, never rise beyond their determining factors and live up to their
potential because they don’t go beyond what they are given or never rise
above the environment they were born into. They cling onto crutches in
their environment. Crutches are things that make life a little easier. They
assist in taking the path of least resistance. Crutches are things like the
easy job in the family business or obtained through a family member or
staying in the same neighborhood for the entirety of your life. They can
also be addictions, sex to make up for a low self esteem, drugs to mask
frustration or to cope with the stresses and strains of everyday life,
gambling to overcome boredom, etc.
The biggest thing that holds people back from realizing their potential is
living life in a passive way. People who live life passively don’t learn the life
lessons that are available to them every day; they rarely learn from their
mistakes and often repeat them over and over again. People who live
passively, plod through life with very little growth. They are basically the
same person they were when they were growing up making the same
mistakes over and over. Those who live passively know that other people
are suffering but they are too caught up in their own problems to want to
help. They are also too caught up in their own problems to notice
opportunities for change and growth that present themselves. They are
afraid of failure. Failure and disasters are used as an affirmation of the
correctness of their “safe” choices and as a boundary which they should
never pass in order to maintain their passive life. Often, they never free
themselves from a dead end job, addictions or a loveless marriage. They are
often ruled by their emotions and are either of uneven temperament, always
angry or hold in and hide their anger only to have a massive (and often
devastating) melt down at some point in their lives.
Many of the people who realize their potential live proactively. They look
at their determining factors as a starting point and grow beyond them. They
take chances, make plenty of mistakes and have many failures but they
learn from those mistakes and failures a rarely repeat them. They actively
seek opportunities to learn and grow and are always trying to improve
themselves, their lives as well as the lives of their loved ones as well as
others and the planet in general. They go beyond their own problems and
often help others and in so doing, are exposed to opportunities for growth
and advancement. Those who live proactively are not sheltered from
disasters. Disasters befall them as well.
The difference between those who go through life pro actively and those
who go through life passively is that those who go through life passively
use the chaos, and the mistakes, failures and disasters associated with it as
a vehicle to retard their progression and those who go through life
proactively use them as building blocks to propel their progression. Those
who are passive are held back by mistakes, failures and disasters, those
who are proactive learn what they have to teach and grow beyond them.
