                     WE ALL HAVE TALENTS

The reason for our existence is not just to occupy space and die at the end of our journey here on earth without creating positive change in the lives of humanity by changing ourselves first which can be achieved by the discovery of that latent ability called talent. It is a popular belief that talents are hidden and man has to search it out in order to make the best use of it. This popular belief have made some individuals form a personal belief that they are born without a talent after many failed attempt to discover what their talent really is. The truth is that talents are not hidden as they seek expression through the actions we take each day of our lives. Talents are never hidden as they give us clues through the actions we enjoy doing. They are often in their embryonic state when not fully maximized or utilized by its possessor.

Most time some individuals are confused about weather they have talents and often overlook those things they enjoy doing and are willing to do even if they don't get an applause doing them. As a result of overlooking their latent ability they make no conscious effort to develop them. As a result of neglecting their inner power and concentrating on their weaknesses they struggle through life as they lost touch with passion, joy, fulfillment, satisfaction which are the emotional elements an individual benefits when they are in their place of assignment (purpose) in life. Having talent is one thing, but an individual can only attain the level of genius when he consciously build that talent. People who consciously develop their talent (strength) are those who with time attain high level of professionalism in their field of interest and give maximum value as well. 

The truth is we all have talents and talents often seek outlets  or a form of expression. Perhaps you love singing, perhaps you love reading, perhaps you love playing the piano, guitar,violin, perhaps you love photography, perhaps you love sewing, perhaps you love engaging in sporting activities,perhaps you love painting, drawing, perhaps you love sitting before the computer, but these talents can only fulfill a need when they are fully applied. For example as long as reading a book help expand the mind of an individual the knowledge accumulated can remain in its latent form if it is not well applied. Hence our talent can only bring value to humanity when we apply them in useful work. The individual who is a voracious reader and a hunter of knowledge may not consider this as a talent if he fails to locate a niche where he can fully express this talent. Such individual can fully express his talent and make it something of useful value when he decides to bless humanity through  speaking, teaching or writing. Do you wonder why they say no knowledge is a waste? This is because knowledge you acquire often seek expression in what you do. Accumulating knowledge without expressing it only make the individual a walking encyclopedia. For instance writing for me is my strength and my knowledge of biochemistry is not a waste as it finds expression in my writing which makes my writing style unique. Perhaps you studied law in school but you have passion for acting. Your knowledge in law can always find expression in your acting skills. Perhaps you studied art in school but you have passion for baking and designing cakes. Your knowledge in art can seek full expression through your cake. Today artistic concept is now employed in the designing of cakes unlike before where cakes only take the shape of containers with little designs on it. Perhaps you love meeting new people and you easily engage them in a meaningful conversion, this talents can seek full expression in sales and marketing when it is deliberately or consciously developed. Perhaps you studied philosophy but you find satisfaction and joy in doing music. Your knowledge in philosophy can always seek outlet or expression in your lyrics. Recognizing your talents, developing it and mixing it with knowledge gained from a particular field or other field you find interest in makes your talent a unique one and that is what makes you a genius in your field of interest.

Perhaps you are still not certain if you really have a talent, below are the possible ways to discover your God's given talents:

1. What do find joy doing everyday?
2. What do you love doing and could do for free without being paid.
3. What gives you a sense of responsibility or unrest each time you don't engage it for a while?
4. What do you keep doing even when people around you don't notice you do or seem to give you applause or praise for doing it
5. What do you get so emotionally connected to when you engage it?
6. What brings you so much delight, satisfaction, a sense of completeness, fulfillment and come with little stress or no stress at all even when you struggle to be skillful in it?
7. What brings you happiness, a sense of worth each time you engage it?

                                                                                              THE ROOT OF VIOLENCE
 Most time when people make choices they usually don't weigh the consequences of  the choices they make because the consequences that follows the choices they make don't affect them directly. Individuals make choices, nations make choices. War for example is a destructive choice that disrupt societal bond, increase loss of trust, damage hopes and dreams, grow the seed of revenge in many others and increase violence tendencies among many affected people. War has made many children orphans, many wives widows, many husbands widowers, war has made many outcast, many refugees, many street girls who rely on prostitution and charity for survival. In the world where bankers, nurses, engineers, doctors, lawyers are emerging the same world is making terrorists, gang members, drug addicts, professional robbers and thieves. While many people are occupying the presidential position, chairmanship positions,  CEO position  in many multinational  corporations, many others are filling the prison yards, rehabilitation centers for many alcohol and drug related problems, many are sentenced to death for committing murder and many choose to be a suicide bomber.

Most time we wonder why the world is full of people who commit violent act and we tend to blame them for all the ills that take place in the society and the world at large and exclude the fact that each of us at one point in our lives have set a chain of " cause" in motion which come back to us in the society as violence, terrorism, pain, suffering as a result of how we choose to treat others. It is often said that the problem of man is man himself. Each of us at one point in our lives have sown the seed of violence in the mind of many whom we consider low to us by virtue of the position we hold. Today many orphans end up in the streets as a result of being treated with so much disdain and disregard by relatives who only are interested in the property of the deceased. Such are those whose conscience and common sense has been lost to greed without regard to human lives. Such are those who subject orphans to ill treatment. Today children many of which are babies are abandoned, neglected, and left for death by many young girls who lack the inbuilt mechanism called conscience which guide good behavior. Many homeless girls ( street girls) who have absolutely no idea of what it takes to be parent are forced to become mothers by those who seem to have no control over their libido.

The health of many societies are crumbling as a growing bodies of terrorists are emerging and recruiting new members many of which are outcast, homeless children, vagabonds, gang members, and many helpless drug addicts on the streets which keep violence on the up roar. This is the root of violence. They want to get back at the society that treat them with so much hate, neglect, cruelty and suffering. They want to get back at the society that harass them sexually. They want to get back at the society that use many of them as ritual lambs. This is the reality of the world we live in today as a result of the choices each and everyone of us make. Many countries today try to stop violence without paying attention to the root. To put an end to terrorism it has to be addressed from the root. Violence is often a result of growing seeds of revenge that many homeless children carry around in the form of pain, anger, hate against the society that treat them with so much disregard, rejection and disdain.

Human being by default has the tendency to seek revenge but the inbuilt mechanism called conscience by virtue of moral upbringing make many constructively direct their revenge. Many who strongly adhere scriptural advice have learned to revenge in a more constructive way by being good and kind to those who treat them so unfairly. Doing this, those who treat them unfairly get hurt on the inside. The inbuilt mechanism called conscience is what regulate human behavior and it grows when morality increasingly get incorporated into  our character. When we break our moral code our inbuilt mechanism is the first to judge us by exposing us to some range of negative emotions that accompanies such bad behavior. Many of these children growing up in the street settings are exposed to starvation, malnutrition, neglect, pain, suffering, physical abuse and psychological torture. As a result of not growing in a proper family setting they are void of moral upbringing that develop character and grow conscience. Hence they lack conscience and character. As a result of pain and suffering such  child encounter daily, hate, resentment and revenge grow in him against humanity as his hope, ambition and future are damaged due to lost of parents in war and terrorism. He is forced to rely on charity for survival.  Strangers walk past him with little or no compassion and most time grudgingly drop coins in his "bowl" which he carries around for dual purpose( feeding and collection of money) and the same bowl often serves a third purpose as he use it to protect his head from the harsh weather condition on a hot sunny day.

Today many terrorist group are busy recruiting many of these street kids by brainwashing and taking advantage of their vulnerable nature. They are increasingly using them in various parts of the world to serve a destructive end against humanity. They tell him humanity is evil, mean, wicked, and as such unworthy to live. As a result of the experience he had gathered on the street he easily succumb to this ill belief and revenge increasingly grow in him. The child who should be given a book, is given a gun. The child who should be in the classroom facing the chalk board and absorbing the letters before him, is in the open field armed with a grenade and is taught how to shoot a gun by some terrorist group. The child who should be in the chemistry lab mixing chemicals, absorbing knowledge  and finding solutions to the ailment that befall mankind is in the terrorist camp studying many toxic chemicals that make up the bullet which he uses against humanity. This is the root of violence. If these problems are not addressed from the root , the rise of the child terrorist will continue  and many innocent individuals will keep going on their early demise.

As a result of trying to escape from negative emotions like depression, fear,shame etc, many have made destructive choices which put them in a much worst state than they bargained for. It is often said that the freedom to choose is the power available to all mankind but this power can be destructively used when the individual lack information( knowledge) and emotional maturity ( judgement skill). Logic fail, common sense becomes unattainable, far from reach and unable to fulfill its purpose when a man is under the spell of the emotion called "love". Man's ability to utilise the knowledge available to him comes from his ability to manage his emotion productively. Our choices are often guided by our emotions and intellect. Our ability to make the right choice is improved when we arrive that height of emotional maturity. Most time people indulge in bad habit not because they lack information but because they lack power and power comes from the ability to use the information available  to them. The extent to which people use information available to them is in relation to how matured they have become emotionally. Hence man grow in wisdom when knowledge is rightfully applied through improved judgement skill.

Many individuals out of their inability to understand what negative emotions have come to teach them have made poor choices by suppressing such emotions using certain vegetable products just to get away from the persistent torment and torture from such emotions. One man lost his job and the next thing he thinks is to depend on alcohol just to escape depression. What such man fail to realise is that he is setting himself up for addiction. Many young people in an attempt to escape depression crack up their future, hopes and dreams as they enjoy the crackling sound that comes from melting of white rock(cocaine) on fire. That crackling sound at the other end of the bargain often prove to be unexciting anyway as it is full of regret, pain and sorrow.

Vegetable as innocent as it is has sent many to rehabilitation centres, has broken many homes, has made many homeless, has made many lost their mind, has made many street wanderers, has sent many to jail, has made many strangers to loved ones,  and has led to the early extinction of many. Man keep blaming vegetables for the ills that befall him. When he slap his wife, vegetable takes the blame. When he drive recklessly as a result of loosing motor coordination, vegetable takes the blame. Vegetable is not evil in itself but man made it evil by converting it into cocaine, alcohol, heroine,ecstasy,methamphetamine, etc which he excessively indulge and become its willing slave. One man in his esteem ignorance and foolishness and who have poor knowledge  of the effect of nicotine, cocaine and mariguana on his health claim to know more than the physician by boastfully declaring on the top of his voice and getting the attention of many who cares to listen " I PUFF VEGETABLE, YOU EAT VEGETABLE" we both take vegetable only in different ways.  What such man fail to understand is that while one vegetable cleanse the bowel and purify the internal environment , the other vegetable poisons his system, weaken the integrity of his lung and expose him to many diseases such as lung cancer, heart diseases and possibly death. As he increasingly indulge it he becomes a weak fellow to its enticement and obedient servant to its call.

Many individuals in an attempt to escape undesirable emotions depend on white rock ( cocaine) mixing it with caustic soda, marijuana and ecstasy. This chemical mixture of course bring them into a state of euphoria but slowly bring them down the plane of despair, regret, pain and suffering as it truncate their future, damage their hope and collapse their dreams. Such are those who end up putting their family on an emotional roller coaster as they await their recovery through the help of some rehabilitation experts. Many who are not lucky enough end up losing their lives to this deadly substances and they end up becoming one of the experimental species placed on some dissecting table before some anatomical pathologist. And many who accidentally kill people under the influence of some dangerous neuro-depressant drugs gets a long jail term. Many have lost touch with reality as a result of losing their five senses to drugs. Such are those who have become victims of psychosis. They hear sounds others can't hear, they see unreal images,smell things that aren't present, and feel bug bite underneath their  their skin. Their health, their social life , their career , cognitive abilities go down with every glass of tequila mixed with cannabis, cocaine or ecstasy. Many have become candidates of the morgue, many have been sent to rehabilitation centres and many end up in jail because of drugs and drug related crimes.

Despite the mountain of evidence about the negative impact of drug use, many people are still falling into the trap of drug addiction. Being aware of the consequences of drug can't solve this problem. Majority who fall into this trap are intellectually sound. Some doctors still smoke and drink alcohol excessively despite their knowledge about the negative impact of drug and alcohol on the health of an individual. What does this tell us? It means intellectual knowledge is not enough to stop people from starting the habit. For example Tom decided to smoke cannabis before his friends because he is afraid of being called a boy instead of a man. Jack who does not take alcohol but soda decided to prove a point by gulping 10 glasses of alcohol at a go in order to be applauded. The truth is the choice we make is influenced by how much we have grown emotionally. Majority of individuals spend most of their years accumulating knowledge but fail to utilise those knowledge as a result of being so emotionally weak. Methamphetamine or dry ice, chalk, crystal, meth , call it what you may can kill you. Cocaine a.k.a white rock can make you a candidate of the morgue , alcohol can send you to jail. The power to make choices still lies within every man. Before you take that drug weigh the consequences and see if is really worth the price of your eventual extinction.

                                                 DIGITAL ROBOT


Today man treat himself like a digital robot but sickness, pain, headache, stress reminds him that he is not made up of some metallic devices. The advancement of technology has brought changes in the condition of our environment, our health, our atmosphere, nature, and our planet. Man in his increasingly advancing urban environment is exposed to various kind of pollutants but he keep separating himself from the green (natural world) as he sees this as a prove of his intellectual growth. Asphalt, bitumen, coal tar in many homes and offices leave no space for green. Trees which provide environmental health benefit as it help trap green gas 
(CO2) in the atmosphere is disappearing and street lamps are taking their  place in many roads. The consequence of man's yearn for more power, control of his fellow man, wealth has led to the birth of many degenerative diseases which has kept our scientist too busy in many lab.  Ego, hate, greed has taken the place of common sense among CEO's of many billion dollar companies. Uncle Thomas who is the CEO of one of the billion dollar restaurants continue to feed people into becoming obese. Uncle Phillips who is the CEO of a major oil company continue to pollute the atmosphere with toxic green house gasses, marine ecosystem and land with toxic industrial runoff. Uncle Jone who is the CEO of one of the billion dollar pharmaceutical companies continue to manufacture drugs that lack active ingredients. Hence often fail to effect a cure. Isn't it obvious that all these ills are committed in order to keep many institutions in place ? Isn't it obvious that these industries are designed to fail in order to keep other institutions in place ? If uncle Phillip decided not to pollute the environment then the cancer institute will collapse. How, you may want to ask? If uncle Phillip decided to embrace environmental friendly technology, marine animals will be free from carcinogen and man will be free from getting cancer when he feeds on fishes. But this approach will cost our uncle Phillips too much as he works very hard to maintain a high profit margin, hence he prefers to pay fine to environmental protection agencies as he keep polluting the environment and as such keep expanding the cancer institutes and many pharmaceutical companies. Our uncle Thomas too continue to feed many with junks and also sending them to the ASSOCIATION OF OBESITY. If an idea is profitable to some billion dollar companies it doesn't matter hoe many people have to go down for them to climb and remain at the top of the socio-economy  ladder. It all boils down to money in the end of the day. Human lives have become nothing but a piece of commercial enterprise as greed, control and ego continue to fuel unhealthy competition among many billion dollar companies.

Scientist keep making research, telling us they got our back. Many today keep complaining of many diseases and wonder if genetic engineers can save them. The question is why do genetic engineers only cover problems but fail to stop the cause? Isn't  it because they also help to keep many billion dollars companies in place for them to stay in place too? Global warming which has become a global concern seems not to be above the control of our GENETIC MESSIAH as new methods of cooling the atmosphere from green gas emission has been introduced. Sulphur sun screen, carbon capture and storage, iron seeding, biochar are among the new technology that are introduced by some geoengineers to solve global warming. But the widely accepted idea happen to be biochar since every other methods have some relative disadvantages. For example iron seeding methods could lead to the acidification of the marine ecosystem as it requires the dumping of large amount of iron into the ocean to stimulate growth of phytoplankton which in turn help absorb CO2 from the atmosphere. Biochar which happen to be the widely accepted method of geoengineering the earth from the effect of global warming has raised lots of concern among many as they believe this method of cooling the earth could result into a full blown catastrophe in future still this method of cooling the earth continues and the billionaire oil corporations continue to support and invest heavily in this method in order to continue with their profit making but detrimental technologies. What is the effect of global cooling if global warming continue to be on the rise? Isn't it obvious that these billionaire oil corporations are in full support of this method of geoengineering the earth in order to shirk responsibility?  The truth is as mankind we have intellectually evolved and we are capable of a more environmental friendly technology but bad technologies.are kept in place in order to support the existence of many institutions and corporations. Take for instance if many oil companies embrace environmental friendly technologies then geoengineers will be out of business as a result of massive reduction of carbon dioxide emission in the atmosphere. If marine ecosystem suddenly becomes free from toxic industrial run off then many cancer institutes will fail to function. How , you may want to ask? - less and less people will be diagnosed with cancer as aquatic animals would be free from carcinogens.

Technology that pose great threat to human, forest health, animals, atmospheric health, planetary health continue to be funded and supported with no regard to human lives as long as some CAPITALIST GIANTS sees opportunity to increase their profit margin. The question is where are our scientist leading us? Many natural animals keep going on extinction as a result of many companies who make profit from animals skin, fur , tusks  and claws and they hope genetic engineers will help replace them through the process of genetic engineering ( cloning). Rhino's horn, elephants tusks, tigers skin, wolves skin now serve commercial purposes. The world is increasingly becoming more artificial as natural things go extinct. Today foods are grown in labs and injected with desirable traits as natural ones happen to be less beneficial as a result if exposure to toxic fertilizers and pests. The future holds a lot if hope for many drug addicts, alcohol addicts and nicotine addicts as scientist are working very hard to manufacture complex organs like heart, kidney and liver using stem cells from bone marrow. This technology is not bad in itself but it will surely encourage addiction among many youths in the future.

Today human beings are becoming more robotic and less human as a growing number of robotic companies are building tiny robotic devices ( bio-chips) that help detect and kill many form of cancer when implanted into a cancer patient. Also the robotic industry are working very hard to create tiny devices that can be implanted in the brain or body of human to help them operate computer systems, TV's and door ways without making physical contact with it. This technology is already happening. Human being are increasingly becoming CYBORGS ( cybernetic organisms). Some individuals have on them elements that belong in the lower end of the periodic table. Silicone breast, silicone buttocks, titanium hips, jaws, kneels, elbows are replacing the real ones. The often asked question  that have not generated response is " where are our scientist leading us?". The truth is as mankind the power to make choices lies within us. We can choose to make powerful and informed choices. We can choose to visit nature in order to connect with our true source and get away long enough from the highly polluted and chemical filled urban jungle. We can decide to make healthy food choices and avoid the trap of obesity. Purchasing power is the only power available to every consumers. You can choose to avoid the purchasing of animal coat, snake leather bag. Doing this will definitely reduce the killings of many animal species  by many who have become a threat to animals. You can choose to use your money wisely.
