I’ve been doing a research and I wanted to figure out what’s the most powerful thing in the world, who gets what he want and who doesn’t? It’s pretty attractive question too.
When I was little boy, there was nothing I wanted more than a mole on my forehead. I know it’s funny, but there was a guy, my idol, a badass in my eyes that had a mole on his forehead. I don’t know what got into me, but I wanted mole on my forehead and I went to bed with that wish every day.
If you’ve seen the movie Ted with Mark Wahlberg you may be aware of the speech:
Now if there’s one thing you can be sure of, it’s that nothing is more powerful than a young boy’s wish, except an Apache helicopter. An Apache helicopter has machine guns AND missiles. It is an unbelievably impressive complement of weaponry, an absolute death machine.
Although the narrator inducted a bit of a comedy, young boys wish is the most powerful thing in the world.
When I saw that the guy wasn’t any badass and that mole was pretty unattractive, I lost my wish to have a mole on my forehead after a while and didn’t keep track on it as I used to do every morning. It was waking up, mirror time to check on my forehead.
After 6 years, when I was 8th grade I saw a little mole on my forehead! It was on the same spot that my imaginative “badass” had. When I remembered about my wish and going to bed with that wish every day, I manufactured a realistic mole on my forehead.
Moles occur when cells in the skin grow in a cluster instead of being spread throughout the skin. Along with my strong wish, I made my body’s cells in the skin grow in a cluster on that particular point.
What’s the point?
My point is that our mind in childhood is pure. It’s making the flow natural and it doesn’t have “what ifs” or “should haves.” We just do. Even if we want a freaking mold on our forehead we can have it, only if the wish is big enough.
The problem when we get older, we shift our mindset and induct traumas to it. More or less, we all figure out the world’s philosophy or how everything works. How the desire for power dominates, while all the virtues are thrown in the river, how the nature is not naturally destroyed to make furniture, how money are more powerful than happiness and how materialism dominates. We get in the phase “the stages of life.”
While thinking over how the meanness, dishonesty and evil things dominate for a short period of time, we inspire by the quote “It is better to live one day as a Lion, than 100 years as a Sheep.” It is actually to motivate people and not direct them toward drugs and induct the motivational factor f*ck it in the wrong direction.
As I subsided a bit from the “young boys wish” the answer on the question “what’s the point” would be that we have so much going on in our minds that we get attached to failure severely, while we lose all of our imagination.
My mole, although not so wishful example, shows clearly that having a wish so strong can even produce a mold when we have purse soul and mind.
There are so many right things to do, that if we do one at a time, 10 thousand years wouldn’t be enough. And yet we subside from our virtuosity and go through the dark path in life.
Grab your wishes and clear your mind. Know that you have pure soul, you’ve done nothing wrong and keep imagining. Everything is possible and “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” In my case the mole was plant 15 years ago and I still wear it.
Live in your own illusion alongside the virtues, because this world is enough of seeing evil and power.
