The Secret We’re Not Suppose To Know: The Extraodinary Power of The Human Mind

‘Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve’,  Napoleon Hill once said. It is believed that we only use 10% of our brain’s potential during the course of our lives (many though, would dispute this). So what about the remaining 90%? Why don’t we use it? What stops us from using it? The simple answer is: us.

When we are born and in our early years, we have no inhibitions; we do things without fear of reprisal. Upon birth, we enter a new phase of life. Our first existence was with our Creator, in another dimension unknown to us. We then descend into our mother’s womb and descend again, upon birth, into the world. When we are born, we are pure, innocent, but we soon forget our purpose. Every baby is born with innate knowledge, but it escapes us so that we can start our journey. Our purpose is to rediscover it. Interestingly, the Arabic word for ‘human’ comes from the root word ‘to forget’.

We soon become engrossed in our worldly affairs, in things, which frankly, have no real importance. We are never really given the opportunity to use our mind. But it is because we are trained, indoctrinated if you like, to busy ourselves with trivial matters.

No one really knows how powerful the mind is. What we do know is that our mind is capable of curing the body from ‘incurable’ illnesses and creating, inventing and designing things that change the world. Look up people like Chao Lu who memorised 67,890 digits of Pi without error, Kim Peek (pictured left) who knew every zipcode in America and could read two pages of a book at once (0ne with each eye) in 8 seconds with 98% accuracy and Ramon Campayo, who can memorise 17 numbers in half a second. True, these are all to do with the memory, but it shows some of the things we are capable of.

If we knew how powerful we actually are, the world would be a totally different place. Tyrants can only oppress their people if they keep the majority uneducated, poor and in conflict with one another. These three things keep people in a state of heedlessness and more concerned about survival rather than using our mind to challenge the status quo.

In developed countries where we live under ‘democracy’ we are constantly kept entertained with food, music, TV, films, billboards etc and we therefore become trained to use our mind merely for the pursuit of hedonistic pleasure. If one doesn’t believe in God or an afterlife, then sure, there is nothing wrong with the pursuit of hedonistic pleasure. But again, this is the trap we fall for. The secular society of today diverts us from realising our real purpose.

So how do we start using our minds for its intended purpose. Well, fundamentally, everything that exists is comprised of energy. We too are made up of energy. If we can use our mind to channel this energy in a positive way, positive things are bound to happen. Why? Because positive energy attracts positive energy. And this is why it is important to discard negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones.

But then again, this could all be a load of nonsense. There’s only the here and now. There’s no God, it’s just a big fairy tale. There’s no afterlife, it’s just something to appease our fear of death. Let’s all just carry on as we are…

  1. Jesus said,” Know Thyself”, if you have the faith of a mustard seed you can accomplish anything you can think of doing no matter how off the wall you think it is, God has made you in his image, think about it people you are Gods here in this place he has made for us. We are dumbed down every generation forced to go to school to be conditioned to be controlled. The faith Yeshua talked about is believing in yourself that God has given you everything you need , upon creation of you , to do anything your mind could possibly think of even saying to a mountain jump into the sea and it surely will. think on that , … end of transmission…… Jerry Sperry

  2. Your mind will believe what you tell it an it is capable of much more than listed here, there is A God he is the I AM therefore I AM , Jesus says know thyself . end of transmission

  3. Very confused people. His last comment was to get u to think. He didn’t actually say there is no God rather the opposite.

  4. I really love your opinion…Up until the fact that God doesn’t exist…God exists…Just that you should know and believe in and your speech will be the best…

    This is the dumm website I never read u are very very very stupid u need help like take this freaking website down god is real who create science who create the world who creat u and me who create the universe god Jesus Christ

  6. I'm You, Hello :) July 24, 2017 — 12:58 pm

    GJ Omar i like that you do not respond to the peoples that come and hate without thinking if what they say is 100% truth…
    The truth is in us peoples just try to search it alt least…

  7. oh my gosh,i never believed it real,please one who has this ability of the mind how can one control,maintain,use it to reach their goals????

  8. Calling people unintelligent for not believing in god is completely contradictive of what you so believe. Reserve judgement.

  9. what brought the univers if there is no god? Think well there must be some one very blessed and powerful in control of everything.

    • You are ignorant… And u put everything about which u don’t know, on the shoulder of so called God. So easy, right? Science instead is trying to give reasons to every such doubts and science has the power to do so

  10. the thoughts were good but in the last you wrote that after life is something appease our fear of death,
    i don’t think its true……..

  11. Omar you are confused. You made mention of a creator. Who is this creator if there is no God.

  12. You are unintelligent if you think there isn’t a supreme being which is God. He works wonders in our life every second of every day. Do you think earth was an accident or a work of science?

    -John 3:18-19
    Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.

    If there is no God there is no such thing as sin either…. Rape, Murder, Adultery are all okay to do.

    Romans 6:23
    For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    We all are sinners its in our nature but to an unbeliever, there is no hope!

    Jude 1:22 ….have mercy on those who doubt;

  13. I do truly believe in this and have thought these thoughts for many years that it has made my head hurt.

    The questions i ask is how exactly do we channel this positive energy?
    how can we reach that true goal we are destined for?
    What happens once this goal is reached?

    • Louise: Just Love everyone, every living things, nature, forgive all the hatred and believe in God and follow the Religion, left all the bed habits then only you can achieve your goal.

      Goal mean help others and God will help you in everything, whatever you think you’ll get in not in only worldly life but in life after death.

      Just read the quotes below:

      “The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of wind, but the goodness of a person spreads in all direction”

      “Happiness comes from spiritual wealth, not material wealth… Happiness comes from giving, not getting. If we try hard to bring happiness to others, we cannot stop it from coming to us also. To get joy, we must give it, and to keep joy, we must scatter it.”

    • There is no true goal. Just live your life one day at a time, experience the beautiful landscapes this multi-billion year old planet has to offer, travel the world, see things you’d otherwise never be able to experience, do things that make you happy, care for others, be polite, and please, always reserve judgement. Life is simple. We all live to, inevitably, die. How you choose to spend your numbered days is up to you.

  14. I like your thoughts Omar.
