Don’t Let This ‘Selfie Shit’ Fool You

Published

on

When I log into my Facebook account, I always meet with hundreds of selfies. These selfies mostly strive to indicate that the selfie-takers are living a happy and luxurious life.

Three years ago, before I started reading and watching self-help material, this selfie-nonsense used to stress me. It even resulted in me succumbing to depression because I thought I was the only one with problems. Besides this, the selfies made me believe that my ‘friends’ were making progress, and I was the only one left behind. I was broke, and nothing seemed to work out for me. All my relationships sucked, and the only thing that gave me hope was prayer.

However, today, these selfies never stress me anymore because I realized that they are pieces of shit. It dawned on me that some of these people who take ‘happy’ photos of them in luxurious places were as broke as hell. Moreover, some were even more depressed than I was. In addition, I realized that they posted selfies because they were self-obsessed attention seekers, who used selfies to get validation and praise.

When I started my blogging career, some of these individuals came to me for advice on how they can deal with depression. Others thought blogging had made me rich, and they continually asked me to lend them money. I then realized that a good number of the ‘selfie-takers’ had larger problems than me and the selfies helped them create an illusion of everlasting happiness and prosperity.

Let me tell you a big secret. There is nothing like everlasting happiness in this physical world. Life is meant to be challenging because challenges/problems enable us to grow into our full potential. For this reason, don’t think that some people are problem-free just because they continuously post silly photos of them having fun on social media.

Posting a selfie is not a bad thing. I am just uncomfortable with individuals who continuously post selfies with the primary aim of informing people that they are always joyous and rich.

I am concerned because this selfie nonsense has made some individuals succumb to depression. People compare their lives with others based on selfies, and they believe they are the only individuals with problems.

Little do they know that most of the ‘rich-selfie-takers’ are not wealthy. I have successful friends – such as Dan Western (Founder of Wealthy Gorilla) and Josiah Humphrey (CEO at Appster) – on Facebook, and I have never seen them post silly selfies that show the world how rich they are. These individuals are always working hard, and they don’t have time to show off.

Therefore, never be fooled by the selfies. Ignore them and don’t let them drain your energy. Just focus on your progress and realize that many individuals who show off on social media are neither happy nor wealthy.

And to all the people who constantly show off on social media, my main advice to you is that you SHOW UP, don’t just SHOW OFF. HOPE I SEE YOU AT THE TOP BECAUSE I WILL PERSIST UNTIL I SUCCEED.

Anyway, what’s your say on this selfie nonsense? Feel free to air your opinion in the comment box below.

    Great post! Unfortunately we have a tendency to believe everything we see and what we see of social media is a far cry from what is real. That’s why being genuine and transparent ON social media can really set you apart for the masses who want you to “think” all is successful or all is great! Just be you!

Life is Hard Because Virtue is Dead

Life is Hard Because Virtue is Dead

Since antiquity, great individuals such as Jesus, Muhammad, Socrates, Pythagoras, Epictetus, and Benjamin Franklin, advised their followers to be virtuous. According to them, being virtuous makes life easier or better.

I used to doubt this idea about virtue. However, after observing life in the modern society, I discovered that modern life is hard because people are unvirtuous. I realized that life could have been so wonderful if everyone embraced virtue by adopting qualities such as gentleness, self-discipline, courage, wisdom, kindness, perseverance, patience, love, contentment, and benevolence.

For instance, no one could be poor if we were all loving because we could have committed ourselves to helping each other. Politicians and capitalists could have avoided taking more than enough, and they could have given part of their wealth or profits to the poor.

N/B  – The world has enough resources for everyone. Things only appear scarce because some individuals took more than enough. They are too selfish to share, and they don’t care about the poor. In other words, they are unvirtuous.

Anyway, there could be no wars if people embraced the virtue of contentment. Throughout history, many wars occurred because of greed. Many people were killed because some countries wanted more than enough, and they used war to force other nations to surrender their resources to them.

Other than that, jealousy, hatred, and malice could never exist if we all embraced the virtue of benevolence: we could have been happy for other people’s success and we could have helped our relatives, friends, and neighbors build success instead of trying to pull them down.

In addition, people could never be stressed about the future if we all embraced the virtue of courage because it could have made us embrace change/uncertainty.

In summary, life would be so easy and sweet if everybody embraced virtue. We could have created heaven on earth. Suffering would end and life would stop appearing hard because we would have been willing to help each other overcome problems. Mental complications such as depression and anxiety would never exist because virtue eradicates factors such as competition, the need to appear better than others, the need to compare ourselves with others, and worrying about what other people think.

We could have seen the beauty of life, and for this reason, we could have spent most of our time praising the Creator for bringing us into an amazing world.

Therefore, life is not hard folks. We are making it hard by ignoring virtue, which is the key to an easy life.

Lastly, never curse your existence because you think life is hard. Instead, be thankful for life and embrace virtue because even if it will not make life easier for everyone, it will make your life easier. You’ll create a heaven for you and those around you.

THE END.

Is Dreaming Meaningless? Taking a Deeper Look into Dreams

Is Dreaming Meaningless? Taking a Deeper Look into Dreams

For years, mainstream science has lied to us about dreams by informing us that dreams are meaningless. For this reason, most of us never try interpreting our dreams to find their deeper meaning.

I used to believe this scientific viewpoint of dreams. However, I doubted it after deeply analyzing my dreams.

While analyzing my dreams, I noticed that my dreams felt so real that sometimes I couldn’t know that I was dreaming. Besides, I realized that some of my dreams were prophetic because sometimes I dreamt about a situation that I would later experience in real life. As well, I noticed that I had bad dreams when stressed, and good dreams when I was happy with my life.

These realizations enlightened me that dreams are not meaningless as scientists claim because nothing meaningless can neither be prophetic nor can it have the ability to reflect emotions. Furthermore, feeling as if I was experiencing a real experience while dreaming encouraged me to believe that dreams had an importance that most of us don’t know.

I thus decided to study dreaming deeply, and I realized that many ancient people believed dreams were powerful. Most cultures believed dreams connect us to a spiritual reality, and therefore, we are always in the spiritual realm when we dream.

At the same time, some ancient cultures, e.g. the Egyptian and Mexican cultures, believed dreams provide us with coded messages from powerful spiritual entities. These cultures took dreams so seriously that they established schools specialized in dream interpretation.

Besides ancient cultures, I discovered that modern religions believe dreams are meaningful. For instance, Christian leaders preach that God speaks to us through dreams, and they use the story of Joseph to prove that dreams are messages from God. Also, Muslims believe dreams are important, and they believe some dreams come from the devil while others come from the ego.

Furthermore, many famous psychologists of the 19th century believed dreams were important. For instance, Carl Jung, a well-known psychologist, believed in the importance of dreams for as he wrote, ‘we have forgotten that God speaks chiefly through dreams and visions.’

In addition, he also believed that ‘dreams are a little hidden door in the innermost and most secret recesses of the soul, opening into that cosmic night which was psyche long before there was any ego-consciousness, and which will remain psyche no matter how far our ego-consciousness extends.’

Having said that, does it make sense that dreams are meaningless as mainstream scientists claim? Did ancient cultures, modern religions and psychologists guess the importance of dreams, or did they notice that dreams were important after studying them?

Anyway, I believe dreams are important, and the Illuminati, through mainstream science, deceived us about dreams because it didn’t want us to gain spiritual insights – from dreams – that can lead to a spiritual awakening.

The Illuminati usually strives to make everything meaningless since it doesn’t want us to ponder the magical mysteries of the universe that would lead to spiritual and mental growth. Therefore, one way to impede spiritual growth was to lie to us about dreams through mainstream science.

The good thing is that we are now awakening to the truth, and we’ll study and meditate on dreams until we understand the spiritual secrets within them that will help us awaken to our true spiritual nature, know the infinite possibilities of the physical world, and rise above the corrupt system of the Illuminati.

Thanks for reading. Peace be with you.
