Mind is creative and thought is energy! Everything in the universe is energy and based on your conditioning and your upbringing it will create your perception of the world. You believe based on your perception. If you don’t have a solid, positive foundation then most of what you will experience will be negative.
For example if you are from a culture like mines, you don’t necessarily always believe there is hope for someone like you so your experience tends to be based on that perception that there is no hope. Believing what everyone else believes about you, you adapt to the life that your parents and grandparents have already excepted as their own. They teach you from that place. Some things are good and some things are bad, depending on their foundation. Even when you resist the life your parents raised you up in sometimes you still end up living the same life or worse because you believe subconsciously with such intensity, that you continuously recreate the life you say you don’t want. It all comes down to what you truly believe to the core of you.
As I come to understand this I now understand why the struggle is so prevalent in communities where there is poverty and a lot of crime. The sad thing is in a community like the African American community where most people go by the no snitching code and it’s understandable when your life could be in danger but now you have collectively created a cycle.
If you don’t speak on what you see then you end up being afraid in your own community because their are people walking around because collectively we decided snitches get stitches. It’s the most silly thing in the world to me because we have such a troubled way of thinking that we won’t tell when crime is being committed or has been committed right in front of us. But we say no one cares we need to care first and maybe just maybe others will take us seriously when we say we care about our community.
We have been bamboozled into putting cement around all of our flowers and still expecting them to grow where there is barely any soil. The trouble in most of America is that not much is on a solid foundation. Most American communities have a perceived idea that they are on a solid foundation when it comes to personal growth.
