Human beings have evolved in many ways in space-times. Finally on this day, most complex societies ever known exist. In it, most of the people own modern psyche and minds. Seeing the basics of how to develop a smart mind is the issue of this brief piece, no matter how not professional or only shallow discussion it is, unlike the attempts of Mihreteab Debeb (PhD). Far from it. Far from it we are indeed, as well.
Setting up the fact that we need change
First let us, see how our rule of existence as an individual and society exists. So go get out in any ordinary finest-Ethiopian day to the street, and see a human being of Ethiopia. She and he are alive dashing on the dusty roads. But in archaic existence their who-ness reveals no complication and only seclusion from evolution. As though nature is nothing, wonders are inexistent over the globe, society is too limited to mere procreation and dying, the individualization of humans knows nothing different and solemn, and these citizens march up and down the roads, reach destinations, fill offices, homes, and congregations, in all those ignorance written all over their faces, and only giving an utterly blank outlook out of them. Life is unevolved. As old as its beginnings, and no-interesting than survival, well mocked by Yismaeke Worku, we usually sleep to just let a new day come, for 3000 years. Not, to live through it, but to let it come and go.
Might be said to be backward but still simple life. Yet, that fires back. The nation has become exactly that reckless as well. The life we live is a reflection of the law of existence we make of ourselves, and surrounding. We took existence to be enough as a simple and utterly simple day to day passing of the years, and thousand years of history latter, we are among the worst and poorest yet populating super fast.
To make a better move as we survive, life needed evolution long ago, as we started at the beginning saying, and requires a bit of complications. A bit of through thinking, wisdom and thus, modernization of itself. Or else, as Megabi Rodas Tadesse, (PhD) commented, “we are not worthy generation of the big Ethiopia of ancient days”, which used to have in archaic days basic yet series sophistications.
So, only one basic thing is discussed here. How shall we ordinary Ethiopians help ourselves become smarter in our mind with a simple hack and take a first step in moving towards complicacy that bears simplicity?
One certain way is through minds that are put to their use. And that end is achieved in many ways. But, if we build up some component parts, they end up becoming fine part of the end. And one simple way to do that is to be a witnessing person. To do that, many methods can be used. And many components develop them, as well. Let us start from behavior making. How shall we behave? How we behave determines us how we can use our brain.
Then, the first thing is, we need to see the world, ourselves and everything, as valuable for the whole time. We are not for ourselves, our time, only. We are for long, and even after death, meaning we need to believe that we see ourselves exist among our people even after we are dead. We let our successors live, we determine their life, and thus, we live after we even have gone. Something solemn attitude need to come out of us after believing this. We impact space and time. And that, shall set us into care and concerns. We have to act seriously.
Next, we believe in that, we have to move to the next, step. We need to develop a mindset and psych that is a “witnesser”. We have to see everything, ourselves and the unknown as together connected. We need to cram major experiences and keep them together.
That makes us smarter as proper judgment making anywhere eases. Meaning, we are wiser. We need not let go experiences easily. We must hold onto them as they help us be stronger, and richer in our understanding.
If this way is opened, we initiate a larger system. We see the value of communications, experience sharing, life’s richness and the need to complicate it for the sake of easy ending.
It then must be clear by now, that we live poor life because our understanding of life is immediate and shallow. If we see bigger, and connect with bigger aspects of existence, then we are defined to be solemn, rich in set ups, and wide. Only then, a lot more can happen, as ripple effect.
Meaning, we have to start at the brain to end up successful everywhere. We have to stay with ourselves as we grow up, and not leave our ages and experiences. Or else, we are typical ethiopians. People who see only the urgent, meaning there is no critical approach to life. If we forget childhood as we become young, and young hood as we grow to adulthood, and so on, then we better no one that succeeds us. We leave anyone that comes behind in the same blank stage of existence, where self-caring at immediate needs consume the whole of life.
Hence, in life, we nee to have a witnessing portion of ourselves, more than getting involved in life totally. That takes away our experiences only with ourselves and not with our understandings. Less smarter we become then, as we experience strictly and learn, i.e., keep and grow wiser, less.
In totality, life is not momentary in every aspect. It is eternal in some aspects. Living totally as if it is only momentary, has punished the nation so far. Getting involved in small and immediate concerns, and leaving them as they occur as if they matter little, is all there is in our culture. Yet, if we care more, and believe we are connected with the time that comes, we will care more, document and search more, enrich the self with interests and curiosities, become smarter and then more powerful.
In any business we are, we become solemn. Our moves are not for the day. We touch the posterity now. We reach the future before it comes yet. We on the way live a bright today. There exists no good life only thinking according to today. Hence, we are better off, with a solemn approach to let us see life longer than some personal occasions. Let us contain ourselves as an eternal entities and leave a good record than mere staying and leaving that cannot be given meaning.
Go get out on our dusty roads. Have a solemn existence of yours move. Return with the same power, and not with relinquishing the experience as a past to be ignored.
Go get out of your shacks, not throwing all your hopes on the walks and interactions. Keep a witnessing portion of you active. Be aware more and retain that. Return, intact in the psych and mind, and repeat the style.
By no much days, you develop series power and feel it in you. You then need to channel yourself into something. You are no more moving to celebrate nil existence that eats it all every moment life passes. You have been awoken to a fine power and impact making.
See the better, wider, and wiser. Think that way, and not the empty way anymore, the new mindset tells you.
No return from there. You see the empty society and its history and its individuals. Then, keep the wider self of you and become a better Ethiopian. A successful, wiser one.
