Attaining one’s potential…
I have a series of books with the title Annwn-Heaven (you can learn more about them elsewhere), in which everyone can be, achieve or get, anything that they want. This state of affairs sounds ideal, and indeed should be, but for one or two important factors. Talent and ingenuity. If you may have whatever you want, then the boundary lies with what you want. However, isn’t that boundary limited by what you think is possible for you to attain?
If your goal in life is to be popular with the opposite sex, then you are missing out on a lot. If your goal is to be a famous sports or media person, then isn’t that only a temporary situation while here on Earth and irrelevant when you are dead? Say, your goal here is to lead your country. Why would you want to boss other people about, and will it get you anywhere in the Hereafter? What I am trying to say, is that what you perceive as achievable goals is the current limit of your imagination, or knowledge of what is possible.
However, if absolutely everything is possible, as in Annwn (the ancient Welsh word for Heaven), then the only boundaries are those set by your imagination. In Annwn, nothing can ever harm you, and you can achieve whatever you desire, as long as you don’t want to harm anyone or anything. So, surely, you first have to desire it? If you don’t know that something is possible, how can you aspire to it? The answer is, you have to exercise your talent and ingenuity.
Why? Well, first you have to know that such a concept exists, and if you don’t know, or it doesn’t, then you have to invent it. If you don’t exercise these and related skills, you will always be a follower and never reach your true potential. Perhaps that is why education is so important? And also why a dearth of education can be a tool for controlling people.
Is that what is happening in the UK and the USA right now?
Education is being eroded ‘because there is no money’. However, there is money for bailing out the bankers, and there is money for war. Is this a conscious effort to control the working class by an elite that thinks we have become ‘too educated’? Has our ability to see beyond our parents’ horizons progressed too far for them? This is ingenuity and talent management.
Are they scared that the level of education that they have allowed us in the last century is encouraging us to exercise our talent and ingenuity to the point where we will aspire to the rôles in society that they consider uniquely theirs?
