Why Most People Stick To Their Bad Habbit Patterns

Oct 22, 2007
There are certain types of education system in the world that emphasize more on reading and gathering knowledge. Children are taught to remember facts and figures, but sadly not creative thinking. This type of education serves to develop only the memory and that is all; when the time comes to use the knowledge gained for some useful purpose, many would be lost.

Sometimes the knowledge itself can be a hindrance for the student to progress further!

For example, if the student is told that "Nothing travels faster than light!", he would just accept it blindly. He would not even entertain the idea that, "If it is true than how are we going to explore and reach the other side of this universe that spans billions of light years?".

Now, a creative mind would go further into such thoughts, and continually challenges itself to learn more and continue to improve.

However, when this idea is suggested to the memory type of student, he would just call it absurd and ridicule the student who asked the question. Although the memory student may be right at that moment, but he has unwittingly stunted himself from exploring further.

This is where knowledge becomes a hindrance for a person in improving himself, and the world in general. Creative ideas do not arise from the physical or emotional or even the intellectual body, but it comes from the spiritual body which is the source of infinite ideas!

Slowly, a child's intellectual body, emotional body and physical body are programmed with all sorts of stuff as the child grows up. Good stuff, bad stuff, fuzzy stuff, and so on. The child who is a grown up now views the world with a totally different perception than it actually is. When a child is born, it is like a white florescent light.

But, as time goes on, it is wrapped in different colored plastic wrappers. Eventually when it is covered with many of these colored wrappers, the light won't shine forth anymore. It would now be enveloped in darkness also known as ignorance. This is where the person losses touch with his spirit. Thus, the will power diminish, the person becomes directionless and starts flowing with the rest of the crowd.

People refuse to change for the better because they are simply ignorant of the fact that they are connected to this awesome and infinite power called the spiritual body! They are simply not aware! They may have read about it or have been told of it, but they have no inkling at all of what it is because most people have corrupted physical, emotional and intellectual bodies that cloud the spiritual body.

In the physical body, they subject it to abuse; for example no proper diet, excessive drinking (alcohol), smoking and so on. In the emotional body, feelings like sadness, sorrow, disappointment, jealousy, anger, will conquer it. In the intellectual body, the false assumption of already possessing all the knowledge will be there, and the thought of knowing better than everybody else further cloud the spiritual body.

If a person have been living his habit patterns for 20, 30 or 40 years; to expect a motivation training program to turn them around in a day or two is almost impossible.

Why I say "almost" impossible is because I have seen a few people who changed immediately and the changes lasted. However, most would go back to their old ways in a very short time!
