All human beings are highly creative. Infinite Intelligence blessed us with a powerful mind that can create beautiful art, and solve all our problems. However, despite having a powerful mind, most individuals are not creative because the modern society is killing creativity by:
1.Promoting the Myth of the Starving Artist
Modern society loves promoting the idea that creative people especially writers, painters, and musicians earn low incomes. For this reason, there are many memes on the internet that show how artists are struggling to make ends meet. The idea of the starving artist has killed creativity since it prevents people from pursuing artistic careers. Besides, it has resulted in parents not enrolling children in art classes hence killing their children’s creative abilities at an early age.
The modern society encourages everybody to attend school without knowing its disastrous effects on creativity. School promotes the idea of ‘one right answer,’ which kills creativity by preventing students from thinking outside the box. Moreover, school kills creativity by promoting logic and rationality.
3.Promoting the Ego
‘Creativity is a matter of receptiveness and recognition. This cannot happen if you’re convinced that the world revolves around you.’ – Ryan Holiday, Ego is the Enemy
Today, most TV shows, movies, and songs promote the ego by making us obsessed with feelings of self-importance. These feelings make artists obsessed with pursuing glory instead of concentrating on improving their creative skills. Besides, the feelings make us too proud to be willing to learn from others even though learning boosts creativity.
4.Promoting the ‘Busy Myth’
Today, many people believe busyness is a sign of seriousness and future success. For this reason, most of us act or keep ourselves busy without realizing that busyness kills creativity as it leads to mental fatigue, and results in us lacking the time for mental relaxation practices such as, the art of doing nothing and meditation, which are essential for creativity.
Although internet technology boosts creativity because it increases access to information, it has also limited creativity as it makes people to look for solutions from websites instead of formulating their own solutions. Moreover, it has resulted in information overload, which hinders creativity by causing mental overload. Besides the internet technology, most types of technology limit creativity because they occupy our time and prevent us from performing creative activities such as reading, painting, writing, and singing.
6.Encouraging People to Focus on Money
Money is good because it increases our comfort levels. However, focusing too much on it forces us to work in jobs we hate hence killing our creative abilities. It’s impossible to be creative when working in a job we hate because creativity requires passion and inspiration.
The above, and many other factors that modern society promotes explain why modern people are becoming less creative. We thus have to discourage them and embrace the factors that improve creativity because our future depends on creativity.

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.
