Beliefs create our reality; we are what we are because of what we think. They may be our interpretation of who we are or our interpretation of what others think of our capabilities. The beliefs that we harbour are manifested in the conscious and subconscious mind. Therefore, the mind must be set free of certain beliefs that hamper enlightenment and growth before insight can occur spontaneously. Our original mind includes everything within itself, and it allows for many possibilities, it is rich in self-sufficient.

We lose our original mind when we begin to doubt ourselves, silence the inner voice and strive to chase the wind in search of the deeper meaning of life. We create an illusion in order to satisfy our insatiable ego, believing that the answer lies outside, and it is irreconcilable with our inner world. We become self-centered, our mind of compassion, and boundless thought becomes non-existent. We are unable to become in sympathy with all beings thus losing our divine nature. We are unable to remain truthful to our self. Therefore, we hurt ourselves and every being that crosses our path. The emptiness in us is reflected in every being that interacts with us because we interconnected. Beautifully captured in the Spirit of Ubuntu, “Umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu.” In a nutshell, it means, “We are what we are through others.” Ubuntu, a Bantu word, defines what it means to be truly human.

We affirm our humanity when we acknowledge that of others. An African philosophy that offers us an understanding of ourselves in relation to the world. According to Ubuntu, there exists a common bond between us all and it is through this bond, through our interaction with our fellow human beings, that we discover our own human qualities.

The sources of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering are borne by our distorted, fragmented mind. We need to remember that we are all one. We are beings because we belong. We emit emanations that speak of Wholeness, Compassion, and Healing. The words uttered out of the abundance of our heart bring healing to the soul, they are impeccable and there is an underlying power that generates love and freedom. They display proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that they belong in a greater whole. Nothing is taken personally because of the knowingness that what others say and do is a projection of their own reality, a collection of their dream.

Every deed is carried out with humility and diligence, knowing that it is a service to all beings and the soul is enriched. A person with Ubuntu has a revelation that there is no other, this dualistic view is allowed to exist because of the continual battle the ego hangs on in order to continue planting its deceptive seed that germinates to create all this needless suffering. In our state of Oneness, we echo the vibration of Universal Consciousness.
