Each of us has to be committed to the art of relearning, rediscovering and redefining our perception of self because we have been robbed for so many centuries. We have been taught through images, education, books, media and through the systems that govern us of our supposed inferiority complex.
An inferiority complex is a learned behaviour. No one on this earth is born innately inferior or superior. In the eyes of creation, every life on this planet is equally valid. But as human beings, it seems that our human existence is depended on the superiority and inferiorization of certain groups of people. We can't seem to grasp that this planet is ours to share and to prosper in.
Wellness is our natural birthright. We have every right to seek balance within and without. It is unnatural to live in a condition of continuous sickness and spiritual poverty. Once your essence have been tampered with that is what manifest as external dysfunction. We find ourselves doing, talking and presenting a reality that is foreign to our birthright of innate wellness and harmony.
Our image becomes a manifestation of the internal poverty that we tend to ignore because the work of removing all that clogs our perception and innate wellness brings up uncomfortable truths. We have been lied to and nurtured to live and survive in a sick world. We have forgotten the power that is within that controls all external life and activities.
We have to take the power into our own hands and do the work necessary to transmute our current situations into the ideal ones. Nothing will come without our participation whether it be good or bad. We have that innate power of realization or manifestations in the immediate moment. If we can use our time, brain and resources in healing ourselves that will lead to a healthier you then leading to a healthier community and eventually a healthier global village.
The change you desire begins with you. Start today. Invest in you today. The world desperately depends on it.
