What are we created to do.

What is an awakened person. I know what you are going to say. You are going to say it is someone like Dalai Lama–a Buddha. Are any of us awakened. Again I know what you going to say.

You are going to say we are. But are we? Many think we are because we can speak tsostsi taal. That’s my gripe with many people. We have not changed. We are still the same.

We are still like tsotsis. All we want to do is to take, take, take.

Take from someone else. Take from our enemies. And if you talk like that, you are awakened. Think about it. Does an awakened person take from another.

As you sit there thinking about your life, if so, what?

Don’t tell me you are thinking about taking from someone else, as if that will restore your soul. Because I don’t think it will.

We are not created to take. We are created to create. If you take, and its over, what will your next move be then? Will you take. You will keep on taking. And others will have to defend themselves.

They will have to build walls around their properties. And what does this tell you? Does it not tell you that our society is a society of takers? We have walls all around us. That is why security is such a lucrative business.

It is because we are not awakened. We believe in taking from others.

We do not believe in creating things for ourselves. We think it is not cool to do that. What if you fail? For sure, what if you do?

Will that be the end of the world? I don’t think so. Life is long. And yet at the same time it is short. Which means you can take time to create your thing. If you fail, keep on trying. That’s not a crime.

At the same time it is short because if you do not utilise your time constructively, you will lose out. Of course those that lose out are those that do not believe in creating things for themselves. They are those that say, “I am incapable.” “I can’t!” “I’m useless.” They are those that believe they are bewitched. Or, they are black.

“Blacks do not know how to do things for themselves.” God did not endow them with the same powers as whites, or Japanese, or, Chinese. But awakened persons do not think like that. They know what it takes to do things for themselves. It is perseverance. Self-discipline. Belief. And desire. What do you want to have? What do you want to be? Awakened persons think like that. And proceed to follow their bliss. They don’t wanna take. They create. Stay positive
