Action Is Bigger Than Prayer

Published

on

‘In my opinion, if we petition a power outside ourselves to make something happen, selfish or beneficial, then we are petitioning in vain. This is just wishing something would happen. When I was a child, that bike I prayed for never came; not until I worked hard for it did it finally appear.’ – Scott Osterhage, Prayer And Meditation

Prayer is believed to be the communication between man and a Higher Power. Many people pray because they believe that somehow, prayer can make their lives better. They believe prayer can help them become better people and make Infinite Intelligence/God give them whatever they want.

I believe in the existence of a Higher Power and I think prayer can work. However, I believe taking action is bigger than prayer because I realized that most people who get the things they want usually work towards getting them. Conversely, those who pray but don’t take action seldom get what they want.

If you want a good life, you can get it if you work hard regardless of whether you pray or not. Many atheists are living their dreams despite the fact that they seldom prayed. Massive action was responsible for making them live the life they wanted.

However, even though prayer MIGHT not give you whatever you want, it has great psychological impacts.  Prayer can make you feel peaceful during difficult situations as it makes you believe that a Higher Power is working on making your life better. It’s easier to stop being fearful and anxious when you pray and trust that God will end all your problems.

Therefore, prayer can help you psychologically, but if you want good shit you must take action. For instance, if you want to have good relationships with people, you must sharpen your social skills. If you want to open yourself up to opportunities, you must be willing to take risks. And if you want to live your dreams, you must be willing to take action that moves you towards them. Prayer will not give you these things if you don’t take action that leads you to them.

Today, people make a big mistake of leaving everything to God instead of taking action. I live near a church and I’ve seen people who pray 100 times a day but their lives have never changed because they are lazy. However, the life of their preachers often changes massively. The preachers get richer while few changes occur to the followers who believe prayer will handle everything.

People must know that the universe cares more about their actions than prayers, and it will give them what they DESERVE and not what they pray for. Maybe prayer works, but ACTION is more effective in helping you get whatever you want. I once read somewhere that prayer only brings whatever you want in the spiritual realm, but action brings it into the physical world. So, pray, but always remember to TAKE ACTION.

    Yep buddy; and action is like an active prayer, in many ways. Reaching out to God by serving humans. Love this message!

    Truth!

    You know, action is a moving prayer. It generates emotion in the people to whom we move with a positive conscience.

Did the Biblical Great Flood Really Happen?

Published

on

In Genesis, we read about God telling Noah to build an ark because he would bring floodwaters on the earth. Noah then built the ark and God sent the floodwaters which eventually covered everything including the tallest trees. The floods also wiped out all living things that didn’t enter the ark.  

I used to think this story was a mere ‘myth.’ However, after studying ancient history for a while, I realized it could be a true story.

Studying history enlightened me that many ancient cultures narrated a great flood. For instance, the ancient Kenyan Maasai told a story about a man who built an ark because God wanted to destroy mankind. Moreover, the ancient Mandingo tribe narrated a flood that God sent to destroy selfish people.

Besides the Maasai and Mandingo, the Sumerians also narrated the flood story. They claimed their ruler built a huge boat because their gods wanted to destroy mankind. Furthermore, ancient Greeks, Indians, Chinese and many other cultures reported the great flood.

The fact that many ancient cultures reported a great flood shows that the flood occurred because they couldn’t have coincidentally formulated the same flood narrative considering that they lived thousands of miles away from each other. It appears the ancients witnessed the great flood and reported it in the form of myths.

Besides this, many ancient buildings, especially the pyramids, have watermarks that indicate the presence of a great flood. Also, the discovery of fish fossils in hilly areas indicates a great flood might have happened thousands of years ago.

Furthermore, there once existed a highly advanced civilization that built pyramids and invented technologies that the modern civilization can’t invent. However, it stopped existing after a great natural disaster, which many historians believe was a great flood.

Also, the existence of gigantic structures and several gigantic artifacts prove that giants once existed. However, we can’t see the Giants today because they disappeared after a catastrophic event occurred on planet earth. Perhaps the great flood could be the reason for the Giants’ disappearance.

The Bible supports the giant theory as it claims that ‘there were giants in those days (Genesis 6:4)’ the flood occurred. It describes them as ‘the mighty men who were of old, men of re-known (Genesis 6:4).’ Maybe God sent the floodwaters to wipe out the giants.

Anyway, although I don’t believe in all Biblical stories, I’m tempted to believe in the Genesis Flood Narrative because of the ample evidence, stories, and sensible theories that support it. I will continue researching this narrative so that I understand our true history.

Thanks for Reading.

Why Marijuana Might Be Good For You

Published

on

“The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world.” – Carl Sagan, American Astronomer

I used to believe Marijuana was bad because it led to mental illnesses. However, my experience with the drug and my extensive research on it changed my perception towards it.

While studying cannabis, I realized that most ancient cultures deified and used it in their religious practices. For instance, ancient Greeks used marijuana in religious ceremonies while some ancient African tribes worshipped it. Besides this, ancient Indians offered their gods cannabis because they believed Lord Shiva created and smoked it.

Furthermore, some ancient cultures, specifically the ancient Egyptians and Chinese, discovered the medical benefits of Marijuana. The ancient Chinese realized that Marijuana healed the body because it enabled it to achieve a harmonious state while ancient Egyptians used Marijuana to treat psychological problems and many other health issues. 

Some modern health practitioners agree with the ancients about marijuana’s ability to heal medical issues as they use marijuana to treat epilepsy, post-traumatic stress disorders, chronic pain, and glaucoma.

As for me, I realized the drug relieved anxiety and stress as it helped me adopt a positive perspective towards heartbreaks that almost killed me. Furthermore, marijuana enabled me to think deeper and gain great spiritual insights I couldn’t have gained when sober.

However, most governments banned cannabis after claiming it was a gateway drug and was responsible for severe mental illnesses. However, research reveals marijuana isn’t a gateway drug since most marijuana addicts seldom use other substances. Besides this, I live in an area where most people use cannabis, and I rarely see them use other illicit drugs.

Additionally, contrary to most governments’ claims, marijuana doesn’t cause mental illnesses. I’ve used it for more than five years, and I’ve never gone mad. Moreover, many studies show that cannabis has antipsychotic effects which enable it to treat mental illnesses such as Schizophrenia.

Some conspiracy theorists believe the government banned marijuana because it almost made the paper industry bankrupt as it provided a cheaper way of making paper. This conspiracy theory might be true because the ancient Chinese used cannabis to make paper.

Additionally, other conspiracy theorists claim the government banned marijuana because it enabled people to realize important spiritual truths the government didn’t want them to know. This theory might also be true because recently, after using cannabis, it dawned on me that my consciousness is the same consciousness that created the world.

Anyway, I believe the government banned marijuana because it feared some people, especially teenagers, might overconsume it. Marijuana is a dangerous drug when used in excess because it leads to laziness and increases the risk of psychosis. But remember, everything is dangerous when used in excess. For instance, drinking too much water causes nausea and muscle weakness while overeating causes obesity.

For this reason, marijuana is harmless and beneficial when used in moderation. It provides unique spiritual, health, and mental benefits nothing else can provide.
