Learn to Unlearn


Take note, this is my space. I write about that which my community puts on to my mind and about the feelings that my community creates for our experiences. Whenever I read from my people, I humbly oblige to write. Specifically here, today, it has been almost two years since my last such compliance, but not on my Facebook page, where I broadcast by means of graphic art. Of all that I am reading from my people, I am writing as it shows, but for the confession of my own imaginations and feelings, I submit there is a God with a massive appearance.

The observation

Now that I have been reading from my people, it is clear that my people are dividing themselves. I am strongly persuaded to say that they are dividing themselves to satisfy the way they have learnt to think about themselves. Sad as it feels, these divisions have made my people to selectively hate each other, thinking that they are justifying their differences from each other. Nonetheless, we may not lay blame on them, since social discrimination is symptomatic unreasonableness. Surely we can rest the blame on what they have grown to believe in for all of their lives and that which, far before they were born, was made to be their source of their strength, the pride of not being similar to each other.

My people and I have unreasonably found respect to our false differences. Maybe because our convictions are too limited to think further outside from our home Earth. Could we be that so short sighted to believe that what matters most is that which makes us look like we are different from each other. Have we inherited social classes in order to limit our imaginations. Maybe we take pride in shallow minded divisions, in order to sponsor our egoism, self-importance and lack of consideration for each other. Do we have interests beyond my continent, my country, my tribe, my family or it has to be about my religion, my race, my church, my ancestors, my heritage or only my language, my culture, my people or otherwise it must just be about myself. My people, no matter what you call it today, racism, apartheid, xenophobia, regionalism, tribalism, feminism, segregation, nepotism or individualism, learn to unlearn it.

What then

My people, it matters most when we divide ourselves between ourselves, because we create tall walls against ourselves. Divisions make us think we are not related to each other. Could we start to think about our collective development. Or be reminded that a divided community is starved of peace and love, but only wilts in artificial joy. My people, when we dis-join, we cause a vicious circle around ourselves. And so, we cannot put all of our energy to divide ourselves and then stop to work together against our common challenges; hunger, poverty and disease. It is so sad that when we are a foolish people, we die by lack of knowledge.

The conclusion

Now that we can learn to unlearn, we have the chance to unlearn all our selfish values and cultures. We can learn to forgive kindly and to stand down to violence. We can unlearn anger and bitterness. We can learn to speak slowly and to listen carefully to our own words. Yes, we can learn to be together and we can learn together our duty to love each other. Now that we can unlearn, then we can learn to feel peaceful and learn to spread joy. Learn to unlearn, because this is our space and not my space.

Way of Thinking


Development is your necessity. Nonetheless, the biggest question for you is how are you engaging in improving your status quo. There has always been one position to which any progress is identifiable, a place where capacity engagement and satisfaction always meet. Could life’s purpose be expressed in terms of our activities of progress and achievements. Do we in some way yell for progress, yet our performance of the activities of progress remains a separate matter of concern. I am writing to ask you this. Do you find determination to encounter your fullest potentials. Can you go further than your imagination and surprise your satisfaction. Do you think there are prospects in your potential if that potential is not used in full.


Progress is any activity of improvement. It is the influence of our decisions and towards satisfying our desired targets. This is the gravity towards the focal point. It is a movement to the next and better level. We progress by following a direction into a better future. Progress leads us to experimental experience, better mental processes and outputs, and it exposes us to attractive approaches of inter-dependency. It is a departure point that connects us to our dreams, to our satisfaction and to a better point in future. Progress comes with the determination to surpass threats, the continuous quest to reach for the next milestones and a way to realize a better tomorrow. It is true that progress is your participation and devotion towards a common direction of a satisfying future. Surely, progress is certain when we position ourselves and our societies well for results. When the desire for progression knocks into our minds, it makes sense, we become civilized and everything is better than before. And so, progress is a process of stepping forward rather than a destination in itself. Therefore, to make evidence of progress, we need to start by identifying the required changes in the status quo. Go further to set up a ladder of indicators of achievements, to which you must religiously keep an eye on. Be aware, progress can be sprinkled with pitfalls, so be ready to learn and be as such, but retain determination for advancement. Remember, progress is constructed by the strength of your mind.


The status of our reasoning is a tool to break or make our progress. The mind-set is a controllable method, and an array of attitudes that we can choose to hold strongly onto. Take note, for a fixed mind-set, reasoning may obstruct possibility and mislead our methods of progress. On the other hand, a flexible mind-set may be entrepreneurial, inquiring, interested, and motivated to accommodate new ideas. A growth mind-set is flexible, eager to learn, and committed towards nothing but results. While a mind-set is a way of thinking, it remains your responsibility to adopt one that seeks to bring about benefits into our lives. A positive shift in your mind-set may translate to improvements in perceptions and a step up in terms of your supposition of the events, objects, and subjects around you. To the end, when you improve your way of thinking, you become better in terms of your belief systems, values, and approaches at each time you interact with your environment and situations. A contemporary mind-set is informed and concerned with progress. Our differences and uniqueness are just goads to improve our mind-sets.


The amount of progress for any individual or society is undoubtedly linked to the reality in their belief system. We focus by using the brainpower, but we choose to focus based on our attitudes, reasoning and beliefs systems. In other words, the impulse and ability of an individual or a society to develop is determined the configuration of their mind-set. The mind makes you think, but how and what you think is a reflection of where you are going. The mind-set is the only power the mind has to escape from the ordinary thinking cubicle. You are your own mind’s liberator. Use your mind to think on how to liberate your way of thinking. Think outside of that box and enjoy the power of thinking.

Changes in Time


There is one underutilized ability and gift of humanity, thus, the potential to improve our mind-sets. This is the ability to look outwards, in the forward direction, and reaching out for our desired realities within time. To enhance the mind-set is one treasure for our transformation. Whether you are scared of change or not, John F. Kennedy had it clear that, “change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.” With that, we can say change leads us into the future, because, it is the only bridge between now, and some point after now.


It can be thought of that, change is a combination of influential force, magnitude, and time. However, the element of ‘force’, is a factor of change, and thus most times discourages us from volunteering, and submitting to changes in time. Thus, we tend to huddle, and cuddle in fear of changing, and barring own progress, just for the sake and fear of the unknown. Nevertheless, the state of continuous changing, improves behavior, knowledge, and expose us to enjoyable results. Given that change leads to improvements in mental and physical capacities, most of us still think that it is a process of disastrous anguish. Improve your mind set. Change is forming evolution, and it is the latest version of existence. Socrates had it for all, that, “the secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new”. Equally, you may not wither in attempt to change the other individual, but, to lead your persona into changes and into times, such that it stands as a departure point for emulation. Real change is a vigorous process in time, and reflects a continuous improvement of the current situation. As much, your excitement towards change is nothing but made of plans, informed mental calculations, input to activities, or as recommended by William Shakespeare, you need to “be great in act, as you have been in thought.” The change process is a concern for efficiencies.


What could be imagined without including time. More so, could there be an absolute separation of time from potential. Imagine it, anything is possible given a combination of, performance, time, and potential. Somehow, the unfavorable misconception of time, has begun way back, when we adopted to reading and writing of time in increment. True. Somehow it is possible that, we unconsciously believe to think that time grows into abundance, availability as the future comes. Think around it, time is in the decrements format, look alike to the hourglass. To a greater extend, there is this confusion born from reading and writing time in increment, thus, makes us succumb to relaxation, procrastination, and to thinking time is still there to act. No! Only time is now for our changes in times. Thoughtfully, if we have discovered time as a system to help us measure occurrence of change, then, which changes could you measure now as prestigious benefit of changes in time. Could that be your age. Remember, time could be a specific constant point and moment of change. While there are always changes in time, unfortunately sometimes, we suffer from certain changes out of time. Yes, because most times we are still losing time over some inefficiencies. Time is out of time, and fast disappearing out of time now. If time shall always be there, then, let us always fill up time with unlimited events, and cases of progress.


While, we can spend time in some mental activities, time is time of complete changes through performances. This cooking is a persuasion for, your improvement in activities, for your thought, and for your admirable changes in impact. Therefore, in spite of the challenges we are facing now, we should be determined to remain resolute, and to seek to transform. Go after changes in time now, and lead time into changes – plan and execute. Define, and pursue it for the future. You may not stop looking forward and going ahead. Spend this time in changes, to enjoy a rewarding change of time. Remember to focus your focus on the changes in time. And, should there be changes in time anyhow, then, this is the time for changes!

Doing Good Right


This inspired motivational composition, is an attempt to sparkle around issues of, doing ‘the good thing’, and doing ‘the good thing’ in the right way.  I am trying to expose how, the two are correlated, and may both contribute to enjoyable benefits and satisfaction to ourselves, and to the supremacy of nature. This is attributed to the hypothesis that, doing the good is not enough until the good is done in the right way. Objectively, could we achieve good from the wrong way, and enjoy satisfaction. More so, could there be anything sounding as the good way to the bad destination. Still, it is interesting to note how we may wish to do the good thing, or to use the right way, but not both. This is an advocacy for us to do both, the good thing, and to use the right way.

The Good Thing

Could we possibly take it for fact that, ‘the good thing’ shall always remain as the right thing in the eyes of the upright. While it may be difficult to sharply define ‘the good thing’, we may still justify that each one of us has an honest understanding of the right thing, and probably influenced by, our self-consciousness, and the ubiquitous power of Godliness. We are born knowing ‘the good thing’. We have a common point of the right thing, as much as we may have a common displeasure of the wrong thing. Even when you pretend not to know ‘the good thing’, as you may act from some compiled defenses, still, some internal noises and hallucinations of blameworthiness could be tormenting you to the nerves. Imagine, even today science is claiming to measure the availability of such torture of the nerves, as may be caused by some false declarations. Nonetheless and without doubt, you and the God are the only final proponents in determining ‘the good thing’ in what you may be doing now. In other words, we are each responsible and blessed to be performers, and deliverers of ‘the good thing’ for our satisfaction. Find out if this may be correct, when ‘the good thing’ is delivered, there is always a minimum of three subjects to benefit, thus, the performer, the immediate recipient, and by default, our God. ‘The good thing’ is that which you may always wish for yourself.

The Right Way

The only way is the right way to achieving ‘the good thing’. Could it count as the right thing, if and when ‘the good thing’ was brought about in the wrong way. Doing good is a movement, and your responsibility, while, the good way could be your means to achieving ‘the good thing’. However, the values of the right way to the right thing, and ‘the good thing’, are both maintainable as variable perspectives. Therefore, it can be truthful that, we are all potential reflectors of the multiplicity of ‘the good thing’ in the right way, as desired and designed by the creator of our universe. Simply put, we are capable of shining out brightness at our own wish and compliance to God, otherwise we are well polished. This potential, of righteousness, is always available for you as long as you live. Imagine the possible impact. I can picture splendor, because the right way is appearing to become everybody’s journey, while, ‘the right thing’ becoming everyone’s destination. The right way to ‘the good thing’ may not be the easy way, but shall remain the only way to ‘the good thing’.

To The End

Love is for you and me, and love is doing the right thing in the right way. When we love one another, we are actually doing ‘the good thing’ in the right way, because there cannot be bad things and bad ways for love. Accept love to lead your life. Love is the purpose of life, for the reason that, it is both, the right way, and the destination of the right way – ‘the good thing’. Similarly, love is a commitment of a polished surface to shine brightness to the World. When we love each other, we shall shine and bring light to our World. Became ‘the good thing’, and be the right way to ‘the good thing’. By the way, what are you doing today, and which way are you going. Now is the time for direction and destination.

Learning and Trusting


Could you have been trusting without learning. Dig deep, and find out the foundation and background of your current trusts, beliefs, and confidences. Still, could you assess whether your trust has never changed, from as much as you could remember. There are traceable factors that can influence change in trust; the capacity increase of logical reasoning, and adherence to emotional balance. Reality is a mysterious constant, and can to some extent, be attributed to the perspective of opportunities. In other words, the way we see things is undoubtedly different according to where we stand in concept. And so, do we exist by opportunity or by our imaginations. If to trust is also to believe, then, what could be the influence and background of your belief system.


Whoever shall succumb to the art of learning, shall acquire quality knowledge of trust. While learning is not limited to associating with education, it also generally encompasses obtaining knowledge, and enduring experience. It is important to observe that learning augments your mental processes. As well, learning deals with our presentation of emotions, and our subsequent application of logical reasoning. The prerequisite skills of; charming emotions, and logical reasoning, are acquirable through learning, and are captivating when applied. The lack of knowledge is collectively bemoaned by a provocative, relative or equal to death expression that leaves a lot to be desired. Nonetheless, the facta probanda holds that; when you lack knowledge, you miss out on the possible benefits of applying prolific and beatific imaginations, and use of smart logical decisions. Unless you submit to learning, chances are still higher, that you are being antagonized by common hazardous programming disorders with regard to your; individual performances, decision making, and outputting. In addition, and as a result, you may act out some miserable and withered emotional projections. Hey there, learning is the only trusted way to standing by, and for the foundation for your trust, your belief, and to super-charge your confidence. There is nothing in this background, but an instrumental track for performance.


Do you learn to trust, or you trust to learn. Trust can be exhibited through your belief system, your application of confidence, and your biases with faith. Whichever method trust may manifest itself, most significantly, trust is exchangeable and renewable. And, key to the maintenance of trust, is the learning process. Trust is fragile, and so are beliefs, faith, and confidence. On the other hand, to earn trust, entails the responsibility to deliver largely close to the expected, and to provide hope. Interestingly, trust could be a monopoly when you resolve to trust nobody. Notably, trust is a dependence on own perspectives of knowledge, openness, and concerns. Subsequently, I am cornered to pose some three questions here, and are; what do you assume as your knowledge, to what extend do you perceive your open-mindedness, and what do you observe as being your concerns. Trust is a catalyst for social cohesion. To the same, we have chances to relish from economic benefits produced by interpersonal trust. Unfortunately and currently, trust is suffering malnutrition by virtue of historical backgrounds, discrimination, and the prevailing romance with some shallow philosophical attitudes. When you learn, you develop trust, and when you trust, you continue to learn.


Each day we spend on this blessed and spinning earth, is a proved opportunity for us to learn. Fortunately, learning does not just come expensively, most of the times it is free. Just as trust has exposed us to vulnerability, learning can transpose your cognitive ability, and improve your emotional balance. There is greater risk in not learning, than there is in trusting someone or something. Similarly, instead of trusting nobody, trust is an option of opportunities, and it is a defenseless method of learning. Pay attention and accept it, learning is a process, and it is everywhere in our lives. Be willful to learn something from almost anything around you. As a result, and probably subconsciously, you will develop and understand trust, get strength in belief, and earn unshakable confidence. We progress through learning and trusting. You may not be waiting for a scholarship to start learning.

The Blessed Zone


Who has an upper hand for the blessings from the above. I can reveal, we already have an overflow of blessings in the blessed zone, yet only a few are experiencing the zone. To that case, there is an unmasked point of blame for this undesirable imbalance. Every now and then, mostly by prayer, we pursue in vain for our portion of blessings, yet only a few rejoice in the blessed zone. This is clearly an unjustified condition and situation, because in now, we are suffering divisions, enviousness, and pandemonium. It is exceptionally unfair when the majority of humanity is wailing in visible poverty of blessings. Together, let us declare ‘no more’ to the anomaly of anguishing without blessings. I boldly proclaim here and everywhere, we are rightfully permanent citizens of the blessed zone.

The Confusion

Do we know the unchanging code to enter into the blessed zone. While we are born in the blessed zone, and the zone being a supernatural reward presented to humanity, somehow and still, our affiliation is disqualified. Even when we are donated with some common sense, unfortunately, we are failing to access entry into the blessed zone. Instead, we are thoughtlessly locking ourselves out of the blessed zone, and continuing to suffer big time, even now and probably into the future also. Often and unnoticeable, certain simple situations appear complicated, while some complicated settings are impartially simple. Dragging an example, the purportedly complicated number system, the binary, is simply built from only two elements, zero and one. Nevertheless, some complicated combinations of these two elements, today, have revived and inspired technological advancements. From the same analogue and now, we are tragically misleading our perceptions on what we regard as blessings. Yet, while we have everything that we need, we still believe we have nothing of influence. True. Our certain complicated challenges are solvable by some simple and normal powers already in us.

The Password

There is contentment and jubilation in the blessed zone. For you to regain entry into the zone, you need to reengage the access key and unlock the entry. Surprisingly, each one of us already has an abandoned access code. Entry access is all about a revised mind-set, and toward love and thankfulness. Before anything, the foremost object is the disposition of your mind-set. What is the makeup of your attitude, and your approach to loving one another and your environment. From the same, are you working out on being thankful for the character in yourself, and of your environment. Move towards everything with some love and thankfulness. When you become addicted to loving one another, you practically accept and become aware of others. Thus, you are capable of extending peace, kindness, and understanding. Still, you can grow to be captivated by giving, coexisting, and living in harmony. On the other hand, being thankful will bring about in you, satisfaction, praise, and worship to the cryptic power above. Continuous engagement with love and thankfulness, undoubtedly, assures you a permanent seat in the blessed zone.


It remains a prerequisite, for one to continuously monitor their mind-set, and to assess the objects of their way of thinking, against aspects of love and thankfulness. Upon this, we shall not want. Imagine it, by practicing love, we stand to harvest bumper, yet in thankfulness, we have the safety to assume holiness. Love is the substantive law, and while thankfulness is the procedural law of the biosphere. That is the mind-set within the blessed zone. In love, there is peace, uprightness, and inclusion, while the ‘thank you’ is a catalyst, and motivation for repeated performance of the good. With the right mind-set, we stand to rejoice and prosper within the blessed zone. You can only maintain love by being thankful. Welcome to the blessed zone!

Self Pity Nothing


Wake up, open your mind. Avoid losing your happiness because of the article of your nature, social status, or disposition. You are the finest the way you are. Yes, and there is no another you. Take admiration, and accept yourself. In fact, task your mind to reveal your uniqueness. You are an award to this creation, and the biosphere cannot be the same without you. Surely, you cannot disappoint creation by hibernating in self-pitying. Also, you cannot waste thoughts by supposing the measure of human superiority, creation is perfect, and therefore some cryptic powers are inherent in us all. Still, you cannot be cheated by the prevailing materialism and subjectivity. You are entitled to exult with joy, and so, you are not complete until you habituate with thankfulness and accept happiness. It is well with you.


Self-pitying is not a necessity. This is a sensation that sprays one to feel bad, ignoble, and despicable about own condition or situation. Likewise, this cruel process of feeling sorry for oneself, can be constructed from some infertile self-assessments, self-unfairness, and from some cynical comparisons. Similarly, self-pitying is an obstacle to some prolific mental processes, because this habit defeats, and suppresses delicate brain processes and outputs. Self-pitying is melancholy, and can be classified as an ill-treatment of one’s intellectual authority. This psychic disorder can jeopardize self-confidence, personal development, and can get one to believing that they are a victim of misfortunes, or are involuntarily controlled by some demons of their own imaginations. Correspondingly, self-pitying can be equated to an insult to creation by feature of how it initiates.


Why do you need to sulk. Imagine it, when you start feeling sorry for yourself there are chances that you can demoralize your power to perform, and to think productively. Unfortunately you could be degrading yourself, and disqualifying your potentials. Still, you could be eliminating, and killing your hopes in cold blood. Self-pity is just like self-defeating, where you dismiss internal motivations and own capacity to perform. Surely, the worst thing you cannot do is to marginalize yourself, and reject your worth and purpose. The mind is strongly connected to your physical activities, and thus, if you think negatively about yourself you are likely to perform poorly in anything concerning development. More so, there is neither intrinsic nor extrinsic happiness in self-pitying, and this can translate to demotivation, defeatism, and incapacity. In the end, you slow down the process of improving your situation. And so, you cannot misuse your time and thinking power by self-pitying. Thereto, I hint you to take your rightful position, and make thoughts of your own stamina, after all your mind is in your head. And still, you cannot have a rota of mistreating your medulla oblongata by negating positive thoughts. In singular, focus your focus, and let not your mind ponder in destitution. Lift up your thoughts, and stop mental torture.


There is no purpose in self-pitying. While we can never stop to think, the trick query is on the substance of our thoughts. Are we engaging fine thinking while faced by emotions, treachery, or anguish. We may not think in vain and pretend to like it, that is not who we truly are, because we are of bliss. Thereto, it remains important for us to investigate the objects of our thoughts before we become intimate with deep mental processes. Similarly, we can investigate on what could be persuading our decisions, in case of emotionality, objectivity, and subjectivity. To the end, reward your satisfactory thinking power by performing in synchronization with identified objectives, and by enduring for results, such that, the reality of your events may be an influence of your imaginations. Think indomitably, and never stop.
