Achieving permanent change
One cannot simply attain consciousness
And suddenly have common sense and the aknowledgement that none of his accomplishments regardless of how small or big, makes no difference without going through trials and consequence, resulting from a signifantly emotional event, that creates a paradigm shift , that makes you question why you exists, without that it's a myth, change in human beings is a transient thing, it takes great effort to maintain and sustain. One cannot simply retrain your own brain to think positive things, reform the way you behave every single day and not attempt to go back to old ways, without a legitimate claim to seeing a better way. It's easy when others are watching but what about what you do in the darkness. Integrity is doing the right thing when no one is looking. You are not just your words but your deeds. You are not just flesh but a spiritual being, you must realize and embrace this and believe, Only then can you truly pursue your dreams and live up to your beliefs and see the unseen and understand metaphysical things. You know you did that when people tell you that you're strange because you don't act the same, they are forced to aknowledge the change, and what you have to bring, operating at a different stage, moving at different rate, understanding the endstate, walking in your faith, inspire and motivate, aknowledging your mistakes, not moving in haste, knowing you have what it takes, you are now awake, this a different state of mind a different mindstate, pause and meditate, being connected to your base, remaining in your place as chaos fades away, like water you take no shape, your energy has no weight as your mind makes an escape, you are now the master of your fate everyone cannot relate.
