Fear is an emotion that arises when you expect danger. Fear has prevented people from doing what they love, and it has made individuals bow down to political authorities even though these authorities exploit their rights. Primarily, fear has resulted in people not chasing their dreams. Fear is, therefore, the biggest impediment to an individual’s progress.
Many people think they’ll take massive action when they eliminate their fears. They don’t know that it’s impossible to eliminate fear because fear is a part of human nature. We were created with fear in us so that we avoid dangerous situations. Fear enabled the ancient man to avoid putting himself in positions that exposed him to wild animals. It was crucial for his survival.
However, today, fear is not a crucial feature of our survival. Fear, especially the fear of failure, prevents us from reaching our full potential because we often avoid situations that force us to face this fear.
We fail to realize that the path to prosperity requires us to be bold and face our fears. I use the term ‘face’ because one cannot eliminate fear, but one can face it and put it under control.
Anyway, never think you’ll take a major risky step when you’ll eliminate your fears. Instead, realize that fear can’t be eliminated, and just take that step even though you fear taking it, and in taking action, you’ll realize that there is nothing to fear because you’ll put fear under your control.
That being said, the best antidote for fear is to do something even when you are afraid. For instance, if you fear speaking to a crowd, don’t avoid public speaking until the day you’ll eliminate that fear. Instead, just try speaking to a crowd regardless of your fears and you’ll get used to them, and eventually put them under your control.
Lastly, conduct a self-assessment test to check how fear has been a barrier to your progress. Then face it, instead of avoiding it and wishing it goes away. Trust yourself and learn to put it under your control because you’ll never eliminate fear.

An Atheist is a Big Fool
‘The wonders and balance of nature and the marvelous physics of flight present the truths of our Creator in ways simply too overwhelming to discount.’ – Robert Firth, Atheists Are Idiots
An atheist is a fool because he lacks judgment and prudence.
According to an atheist, the universe appeared from nothing. Despite the atheist’s self-proclaimed intelligence, he believes the fine-tuning necessary for life to exist occurred by chance.
The atheist is too foolish to realize that the sun is placed in a perfect position so that we survive, and he overlooks the many natural ecosystems, in which everything miraculously interacts together as a unit.
Moreover, he believes the design that enables different animals and plants to survive occurred by chance. To him, the gills that enable fish to breathe in water, the wings that enable birds to fly, and the roots that enable plants to absorb water were accidentally designed by blind forces. As well, to the atheist, our body organs – that perform particular functions that enable us to survive – appeared from nowhere.
I’ll never waste my time arguing with an atheist because everything in the physical world clearly indicates the existence of an intelligent designer. The seasons, weather patterns, and every living thing indicate the existence of a designer.
‘We humans, as Albert Einstein writes, are in the position of a little child entering a huge library, whose walls are covered to the ceiling with books in many different languages. The child knows that someone must have written those books….It notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books, a mysterious order.’
Sensible people – like the child – know that an intelligent force is behind any form of orderliness. However, despite seeing a mysterious order and arrangement on our planet, the atheist insists that this world appeared by chance.
For this reason, never waste time trying to enlighten an atheist because his foolishness is beyond measure. I refer to it as ‘Infinite Foolishness.’ The atheist is too foolish to realize that everything has a design and design can’t exist without a designer.
If you are an atheist reading this post, do me one favor. Go to a mental hospital and receive treatment as soon as possible because your foolishness is turning into madness. Maybe you have an untreated mental condition because any sensible individual that carefully analyzes the celestial bodies and life will definitely come to the conclusion that something brought the universe into existence.

Top 6 Powerful Meditations of the Unbounded Thinker – Part 2
Last week, I welcomed you in my mind by sharing my most powerful meditations. Here are more intriguing meditations I’d love to share with you.
1.Meditations on Human Beings as the Only Animals that Are Suffering
Despite the decline of the natural world, animals are not suffering. They are still living the way they lived when they were created. On the other hand, despite our easy access to basic needs, we are the only animals that are suffering. This suffering is caused by our obsession with the future, over-focusing on material wealth, and the lack of trust in the universe/God/Infinite Intelligence.
2.Meditations on The Ego and Creativity
The ego constantly thinks about many things. For instance, it constantly worries about losing or gaining material possessions, dressing better than others, maintaining social status, and so on. This overthinking associated with the ego kills creativity because creativity only lives in a calm mind.
3.Meditations on a Higher State of Consciousness
A higher state of consciousness is any state that allows an individual to gain a deeper understanding of life, reality, and the inner-self. It results in an individual feeling that she is connected to a Higher Power and all living things. Besides, it increases an individual’s depth of perception and leads to the realization that all human beings are connected to Infinite Intelligence.
4.Meditations on Virtue
Virtue leads to an amazing life. For instance, you’ll live an amazing life if you cultivate the virtue of love because you’ll always wish the best for others. Besides, you’ll avoid temptations that can ruin your life when you cultivate self-discipline, and you’ll know how to navigate through life when you cultivate the virtue of wisdom.
5.Meditations on How the Illuminati Makes us Ignorant
The Illuminati ensures we have several TV shows to watch so that we never have the time to question our beliefs. It keeps us busy with social media and makes us focus on amassing material possessions hence resulting in us not having enough time to question reality and understand our true nature.
6.Meditations on Infinite Intelligence as the Most Aware Being
The more intelligent a being is, the more aware it becomes. Human beings and mammals are more aware than insects because of their high levels of intelligence. As well, insects are more aware than bacteria because they are more intelligent.
For this reason, the most intelligent being- Infinite Intelligence- is more aware than all creatures. It’s highly aware of its existence and that of other creatures. This means it knows everything about us, including where we are, what we want, and so on.
Always find time to think deep, and you’ll realize amazing insights that will help you in the journey of life.
