Every one of us commits actions we'd rather take back. Each amongst us does things we regret.
But before every one of those situations occurs, a mental impulse precedes every action.
And in that moment existing between impulse and action, an amazing opportunity awaits. For only then can you step forward with a concerted act of
conscious free will and interrupt that action before it occurs.
People usually think of free will as something we effortlessly wield and infinitely possess, but the truth is that genuine free will exists only when
applied intentionally under conscious direction and express control--because during most times whilst the spirit slumbers, both brain and body operate
on essential autopilot, acting out on reflex unto events in the environment whilst the consciousness implicitly approves of all those behaviors
through inert acceptance.
Thus whenever the spirit lets the body run on autopilot, it automatically obeys and adheres unto the dictates of the brain. Thus you oft find yourself
acting out impulsively without any conscious control, and you frequently discover yourself doing those things you regret.
But you have another choice. At any moment of any day, you can awaken your consciousness from its slumber and act out with the authority of the
spirit--then you can short-circuit those impulses of the brain.
Then, you can rise above your preconditioned habits and pre-existent instincts--and you can take back full sovereignty over yourself. For only by
exerting your God-given will can you remake yourself into new and greater forms, and only through rousing yourself into concerted action can you start
truly evolving yourself at an incredible rate.
And it starts by knowing this: If you can resist one impulse of the brain, you can resist them all.
If ever a time arose when your brain thought one thing but your spirit decided do another--if ever came a time when every impulse in your body cried
out for you to run or fight or shout something rude, but instead you ignored its influence and disregarded its commands--you intuitively and
instinctively understand that simple truth: You need not obey the internal dictates of the mind.
Instead of senseless following its commands, you can instead override it with a concerted application of spirit.
And if you can do it once, you can do it over and over.
So whenever you find something about yourself you dislike, whenever you discover something within yourself that makes you disgusted, you need not
continue acting out in those fashions. You can instead build up the resolve to change and act upon that desire towards reprogramming your neurological
structure in different ways.
With each resisted impulse and each concerted application of will, you etch new pathways into the mind. And with each repetition of those acts you
ingrain those new behavior patterns deeper into the neurological structure of the brain.
But most leave that power unused. And most let that truth be ignored.
Thus instead of remaking the brain, the brain remakes you.
And instead of constructing yourself into something much greater, you become whatever that fleshy mass of neurons and synapses wants you be. And
whether that includes acting rude to strangers or being negative online or cheating on your significant other, if you do nothing to make yourself stop
those behaviors, they'll simply continue onward into perpetuity.
So in lieu of sitting back and letting your spirit simply slumber, awake your inner reserves of will and strive towards accomplishing something far
greater. Aim towards seeking out and destroying every horrible instinct and malicious desire within your brain--and accomplish it through nothing more
than awakening your reserves of inner will then short-circuiting and overriding those impulses each time they occur.
Recognize the innate sovereignty of your spirit and start crafting yourself into something greater.
Unleash the true power of your will and remake yourself into something near-divine.
