400 Years of Battle: Imagination's Triumph Over Fear & the Key to Mental Wealth!

Updated: Aug 4, 2023

By ShonSpeaks


Over four centuries ago, two human beings came into existence through the birth canal of their mothers. They were remarkably similar, these two newborns, both bipedal, each equipped with two arms and a fresh brain, both bright-eyed and new to living. Earth greeted them indistinguishably, ready to educate them without bias.

As the years unfolded, their paths, though seemingly parallel, began to diverge. While both were born into an Earth that taught them indistinguishably, their reactions to their surroundings were vastly different.

One individual recognized the life-giving power of imagination. For this human, imagination was not just an abstract concept but a tangible force, capable of triggering transformation. Ideology was not a constraint but a tool to be wielded. This individual learned to use and manipulate ideology, thereby crafting a dominating presence in society.

The other human feared the very thing that empowered his counterpart. This individual's fear of the imagination's potential led to a refusal to train or explore it. Instead, it was loaned out to others, entrapped in an endless cycle of ideology that siphoned mental wealth. This person was blocked by dogmas that were created by the imaginations of others, confined within mental barriers that became all too real over generations.

The difference between these two lives was neither fate nor circumstance. It was a choice, rooted in how they perceived and utilized the imagination. One became aware of its life-giving potential, transforming vision into knowledge, then experience, and back into imagination, in a perpetual cycle of growth. A willingness to always die in order to live.  The other allowed fear and illusory limitations to control, never transcending the barriers set by others.

This is the essence and purpose of ShonSpeaks blogs. We strive to retrain the inner imagination, to rebuild mental wealth, and to help our readers exceed limitations that are often self-imposed. Our commitment is to foster a community where the power of imagination becomes not a mere concept but a practical instrument for personal and societal transformation.

Through these lines, we invite you to embark on a journey that transcends the bounds of convention, a journey that recognizes the profound impact of mental wealth and the liberation that comes from understanding the creative force within us all.
