One of the basic human mental patterns we learn from the moment we are born is how to make meaning of the things that happen in our lives. ‘This’ object held in front of our nose by our mother means ‘that’ to us. This colour is called ‘that’. This animal either means ‘love’ or ‘fear’ depending on our culture, our families’ beliefs and our personal preferences. Our human software is programmed by our families, our culture and the rules of the society in which we live.
Interesting given the subject, that this is now the second time I have sat down to re-write this. Putting our truth into words can sometimes prompt interesting results in our lives and in this case, taking the time to write about my ego prompted me to somehow delete my initial truth speaking from my Ipad as if it was too close, too real, too astonishing to be brought to the light of day. So here we go a second time.
Turning weight into light is our journey as a spirit in human form. Being human is heavy sometimes. The heaviness of the layers of protection that we build up as we grow. The layers of beliefs, behaviours, emotional baggage. We reach midlife and realise that we are carrying our own cross upon which we can crucify our own ego or our truth, depending on the path we decide to take. The path to truth and love or the path to lies and limitation.
Young people today are the future leaders of an unprecedented and unpredictable world in which nothing will be as it has been before. They’re globally connected and aware, like no generations before them, through the Internet, world-wide gaming, social exchange programmes and our evolving collective consciousness. Technology, science, human abilities … everything is changing so fast that it’s going to take a new kind of learning, a new kind of thinking and a new kind of creating to bring our youth into the future of their own magnificent creation. The Youth Brilliance Conference, being hosted in London on October 1st, has the vision of unleashing the brilliance in our youth today so that they come alive to generate a brilliant new future for us all.
