( Before you start reading this, you might want to make sure you have some extra time on your hands. There is a lot here to digest. This is what I
took out of your post. I guess I just take a lot from what you seem to give.)
People underestimate the power of mind over matter. People have a hard time, in this case, differentiating between the figurative and the literal. You
can't literally move a mountain with your mind, but since that's an analogy for doing something seemingly impossible, you can figuratively move a
mountain, do the seemingly impossible, with your mind. And the reason, again, it seems impossible to most is because people typically don't put a lot
of stock in the power of the mind.
People tend to think that what is...........is and there's nothing we can do to change it. They don't realize that, with our mind, we change the
outcomes of things everyday. That's why, to me at least, there are no overtly beautiful or ugly people. Most people I see are somewhere in between
because most people don't take the actions or inaction's they're capable of or actually do, to extremes. They stay in the middle of the road,
cautious so as to not to rock the boat, and get things done in accordance to how things are pre-determined for them. Doing things the way everyone
else has done them before them.
Some people try really hard though to make drastic changes in themselves or other people. But since they're still stuck in the mindset that they need
to do things as everyone else does, no major changes happen. They need to think outside the box, be totally independent of other peoples'
expectations, and do what's right for THEM. And that's why
things in this life change very slowly,
If they ever change at all
They need to realize that if they don't purposely hurt anyone else, there's nothing wrong with doing something good for themselves. It's a safe
place to be though. Things may be pre-determined, but they're familiar as well and there's a certain comfort in familiarity. But most importantly I
suppose, is if you're that type of person, who isn't beautiful or ugly, that's the way you're always going to be. That's the one thing your mind
can't change. If you're inside the box, like the overwhelming majority of people are, that's where you're going to stay. You can poke your head
outside every once in a while when that familiarity of life gets "boring", but you're eventually going to go back in.
Trust me, there are certain fundamentals about people you can't change. You're either a free thinker or you're not. You either get twice as much
done in half the time without trying, or you do the same amount of actions as everyone else does in the same time frame. Try as you might to emulate
the free thinkers, you're not going to be able to. Some people realize all this and accept it as their lot in life. How they handle that acceptance
is what makes them beautiful or ugly. Some people see this and try to change it, which makes them ugly because they're frustrated that they're not
changing. Not realizing that you can't change this sort of thing about yourself.
