Mindset Shift

A fixed mental attitude or disposition that predetermines a person’s responses to and interpretations of situations.

  • Oh! That the blind may see
    Beyond diversity
    The very essence of Humanity
    And stop being ruled by insanity
    Fighting for a god like he truly sends?

    Isn’t a god supposed to be sufficient in himself?
    To fight for himself?
    Defend himself?
    If he can’t, what difference does he make from man—You and I, why esteem him.

    Maybe we are too soaked in naivety
    Or just so veiled to see
    How that a true God regards Humanity.
    We—a perfect expression of his creativity
    Just if we could see clearer
    Maybe, we will spare ourselves the extremism and for once value brotherhood
    Loving over difference.


    Hope our heart be receptive
    We won’t always agree to the same thing
    Yes, Faith or Beliefs
    Values or Principles we hold we differ
    An undeniable fact remains still,
    We all are Humanity in all of our diversities


    And so embracing our diversities
    Respecting our differences
    If there is anything to be extreme about or a way to show allegiance to the god we claim to serve
    It is the love towards our brother
    For if we extremely love the god we claim to serve
    We will love his creature.


    Crime, murder
    War, blood
    Shackles, chains for religious sake
    More and more we put to stake.
    Turmoil, anger
    Hatred, pain
    More bitterness
    No! These woes must stop!
    We’ve got to take back our sanity from religion.


    And so, in the spirit of Humanity
    In the voice of those who by these woes have gone to the grave beyond
    I stand tall
    With my voice raised
    I say No! To religious extremism, fanatism and sadism.
    Humanity first.
    Love above all.
    Towards one another
    Regardless of tradition or tribe
    Religion or even race.

    Ever taken a closer look at yourself and the struggles you have overcome and the times God had taught you some hard lessons, and you went straight down on your knees and say thank you Jesus for all that you’ve given and all you’ve taken.
    Be grateful to God for all you got and all you lost. Remember! His thoughts towards you are of good and not of evil to give you an expected end, this expected end may not come through the signs and the process that you have always imagined. Most times, it won’t obey the laws of this world but when God launches you into your expected end, it won’t only shock you but you will be grateful for all the times God took you through pain, through the disappointments and through the tunnels.
    Sometimes God will back off and let life shape you so that when he steps in, you will appreciate him and value his presence in your storm.
    No matter what you’re going through or what is going through you, don’t forget to have a conversation with God today, most importantly remember to say thank you Jesus today for all you’ve done in my life, for all that you will do today, tomorrow and in the future.
