On a deep molecular level, there is a reality to the way literally everything is perceived. Its a collection of thoughts and learning over time to form a mass. Certain combinations of knowledge lead to “epiphanies”—essentially a highway built to connect two thoughts and/or ideas previously distanced apart. Once that is formed its whether or not the person is strong enough in other categories to actually follow throw. This is all driven by Faith. The stronger the faith to accomplish what is more desired—the cleaner the avenue to achieve any and all accomplishments.
Once an idea is around them—an invention—then does the person have the right encouragement around them to manifest a greater degree? Encouragement creates vision—possibility never imagined before—and if vision and faith is strong enough within a founder they own the ability create exactly the reality[vision] they perceive. Its a constant faith, almost to an arrogant or narcissistic way, that eventually leads you to your destiny. The belief everything is to be a certain way. Growing has to occur during this process, but with the true acceptance of said growth—the desired outcome can and will eventually be had by the vision used to steer, and the faith used to drive you to success. Success doesn’t come easy, its had with a vast amount of growth over a lengthy period of time—if time is perceived to be the standard on learning and understanding.
Back to reality.
Not everyone has grown to certain understandings of concepts and theories. Everyone has different information creating their perception of reality. Its your ability to understand the reality of others and adapt to them. If anything, its absolutely no excuse to not be able to [adapt] if you perceive yourself to be at the level you actually are. Adapting the way you know you can to “fit in.” Inability to do so leaves you as an outlier, until you skip town—and join a new clan. Or if you are called, help those who need and deserve it. Do what is right in your heart. Ask Christ for guidance, I hear he’s getting lots of letters lately. Adapt where you need to adapt to enable yourself to get to where you need to be in effort to make your next leap towards achieving your goal. Buckle down, hold your ground. To further illustrate this I will refer to an exert from one of my mentors, Patrick Rhone, on “ruminating.”
While we largely think of the word ruminating as the art of thinking deeply about something, it has it’s origins in the act of digestion. Specifically in ruminant animals like the cow.
A ruminant is a mammal that digests plant-based food by initially softening it within the animal’s first compartment of the stomach, principally through bacterial actions, then regurgitating the semi-digested mass, now known as cud, and chewing it again. The process of rechewing the cud to further break down plant matter and stimulate digestion is called “ruminating”.
Therefore, it should be no surprise that another common phrase used for thinking deeply about something is “chewing the cud”.
So, to recap, ruminating is the processing of nutrition that has already been processed once and needs to be further processed to be fully digested.
Now that we know the origin, and the process, of the meaning as it relates to food digestion, I’d like to take this opportunity to suggest we better apply this action to the digestion of information.
The thing is, that we are bombarded by so much new information that we simply “swallow” it and move on. Perhaps we think about it in the moment and think we have absorbed something of value. But, like a ruminant beast, such processing can not have the same deep nutritional value as ruminating on those same things. In other words, learning something, letting it settle in, then spending further time processing it again at a much deeper level.
So, instead of exposing yourself to the constant stream of new information and knowledge this age affords us, consider spending some time “chewing the cud” of knowledge you already have. Spend some time ruminating on it — breaking it down — and by doing so make it more digestible and, therefore, nutritional.
In order to manifest anything we have to actually plant it. [tweet this] Everything starts from an idea—a belief. If its believed and true it is exactly what you make it to be. When we perceive it necessary, we need to slow down. Not move too far ahead. Those who cannot adapt subtract. Pick your battles wisely. You determine your own destiny. Don’t get comfortable. Your ability to continue growing and change is what completely determines the destiny laid before you. The non-belief of possibility exactly predicts the outcome. If we have no vision there will be no vision. We will cease to change, cease to grow. To grow we must have vision, its our driver for growing.
To conclude, faith is the driver to vision, vision is the driver to growing. By process of deduction you cannot grow without faith. Thats the reality.
