In this article, I want to point your attention and your focus on a terrible abyssal thought.
Does this thought empower or scare you? Are you excited or afraid at the idea that this could be true?
And today, here, I want to take this though and use it as the foundation of all personal development movement. As foundations of a new more aware and empowered humanity. For sure it is a foundation of my life. I couldn't live without it. On top of it, I have built all my hope and faith.
What is this though you are impatiently wondering?
Please bare with me and read along!
As humans, both as individuals and humanity we have many unanswered questions which lie before and ahead of us. Religions try to answer them. Different religions answer in different ways with the purpose to make us feel safe, calm or have some greater hope for the future.
Is Religion the best way to deal with the fact that we must die and that probably there is nothing after death? Hope and Faith!
As science grow stronger and stronger, it becomes hard to believe in such answers. At least for the ones of us that need to understand through logic proven answers.
For us, there is no place for faith and hope. Only acceptance and trying not to think about it.
We have also to say that nowadays, many new ways of thinking use modern scientific theories as relativity and quantum physic to relate concepts like energy and quantum field with God and Divinity and interpreting it as something always present and as the place where we come from and where we will go back to.
And while it is nice to know that we are and we will always be part of this eternal divine movement, what about me? What about us?
Yes, because if it is true that we are these little particles which made us we are a lot more than that. We are the whole. We are the unique combination of elements in something that is more than just the elements.
We are also this soul, this ego, this unique individuality!
So again what about me? My soul? My Ego?
Sure they have been vilifying our egos. And they had their good reasons.
But still, we are our egos. We are these separate bodies. These minds. These separate beings.
Universe, Life, everything only exists because we exist. Because we observe. In the end, it is all about us. Everything is turning around us.
So again where do we come from? Where are we going? What is there for me after death?
This is why "reincarnation", "a soul joining back the divine energy", "going to heaven" are all loved ideas. Because they let us live somehow forever.
But science tells and shows us that we are only a complicated agglomerate of energy, atoms, bacterias and whatever you like to add. And that we exist now because we are together. After death, nothing will remain and everything will spread around the universe.
And for scientific people and minds, there are not other ways to see things.
The universe is a deaf, blind insensible meaningless movement.
"Our start will soon burn out and our species will be already long gone, leaving no significative trace in the history of the universe." echoing Nietzsche words inside my head.
Is this though really necessary? Or is it just the intelligence unfolding on itself and creating illness such as fear, depression, paranoia?
Does the lion care? Does the flower care? Does a tree care?
No, they just live trying to fulfill their potentials and express their maximum power. Their maximum beauty.
Simply fulfilling their potentials and living their purposes.
Why do we care? Why don't we just live? We do we ask unanswerable questions? Is this a way of fulfilling our true potential and purpose? Or is this a degenerative evolution? An illness?
We ask because we are intelligence beings. Because we are awareness. We are the universe itself which becomes aware of itself.
However, unfortunately, intelligence can grow as far as create illness and negativity like fear, anxiety, depression and paranoia.
And how do we cure this illness? How do we restore hope and faith?
Yes, once we have this terrible though inside us, consciously or unconsciously how do we heal from it and keep living? Thriving? Prospering? Fulfilling our potentials of individuals and humanity?
By using another and more terrifying thought!
If it is true that "the whole" is just a blind deaf unsensible meaningless movement we want to believe that in its eternity, within its eternal movement, its eternal go and back it will produce over and over the same conditions and the same situations. Over and over again.
So while we live a very short life which can appear meaningless in the bigger perspective (I don't agree with it of course) we have been living and we will be living this same life over and over again.
I have heard of this though for the first time in Nietzsche. What he meant by that is subject to interpretation. It doesn't really matter for the purpose of this article. What matter is the meaning I am giving to it; a pretty physical meaning!
The Eternal Return Of The Same: so yes, you have been living, are living and will be living this exact same life over and over again.
Yes, you have also been living different versions and alternatives of this same life. Because you can make choice and you can create your life and future.
But again in the eternal time and eternal movement, you will be again here in this same moment, in this same situation reading over and over again this little article I am presenting you about this terrible abyssal thought.
Now I want to ask you, how does this thought make you feel? Do you feel empowered or condemned by it?
Well if you are not happy with your life for sure it is better to believe you will go to heaven after you die and you will be infinitely happy ever after!
Or you will reincarnate in a better life. Or whatever else allows you to sleep at night. And live. And prosper. And thrive.
But we science people, honest science people we can't lie to ourselves. We can't really believe anything else other than this thought.
I personally feel empowered by it.
But what about you? Assume this though it is true for a moment. Ok ok, you maybe don't believe this though. But play with me for a moment. Let's pretend science has shown us that it is as true as the Earth turns around the Sun.
You are really living over and over the same life. What is your first reaction?
Do you feel like crying and complaining over this? Do you feel condemned to a below the potential, sad, poor life?
Or are you going to do your best to make yourself, your life and the humanity as good, as splendid and as powerful as it can be?
Yes you will be living this exact same life over and over. Accept what it is and do your best to fulfill your true potential of human being by creating healthy, happiness, success, wealth, longevity and positively impact the world and humanity.
I know someone will not believe in this thought, will not listen or even understand it. Or will just stop reading.
I know someone could be terrified about the possibility that this thought could be true.
But what about you, personal development tribe? Can you deal with this terrifying thought?
You have been there thinking for a long time about doing something to improve your life, humanity, the world but you have been putting it off as you were feeling too busy, too stressed, not powerful enough.
Stop the excuses. Your excuses are condemning you! If you don't do anything to change your life and humanity you will be just living over and over again the same "below the potential's life".
It is time to step up your game and life over and over again a fulfilled life and grow up to your true potentials.
And even if very sad and unfair things have happened to you in your life and even if you have a really harder starting point compare to other people, remember that these things are what make you unique and you should use them to empower you.
What doesn't kill you most of the time make your stronger.
Embrace your situation, your life, your unicity and grow strongly up to the sky like a huge millenary tree: fulfill your potential and be there for yourself, for humanity and for the "whole".
Isn't this (your evolution to your best self and humanity evolution to a super mature humanity) going to be the most marvelous spectacle in the whole Universe?
Aren't we just the universe which discovers, observe and learn about itself? And fulfill its potentials while watching amazed and ecstatic? But well, this is a topic for another article.
To conclude I want to ask you:
Are you going to accept this though?
Are you going to make it yours?
Is it going to empower you?
Which life are you going to be living now? The same "below the potential's life"?
Or a fucking life worth to be lived over and over again?
Can you embrace your past, fully live your present and create piece your piece your future? The future?
Can you wake up every morning and shout out loud full of joy:
I am so grateful to be condemned to live this empowering life over and over again.
Yes please. Once again.
