Mind Over Matter - Scott Houghton

Quote: "Just because someone stumbles, loses their way, it doesn’t mean they’re lost forever. Sometimes we all need a little help." ~ Charles Xavier

My interpretation: Don’t be too eager to give up on someone, including yourself, just because they have gone off the right track. If we abandoned hope for all sinners, there would be no one left to have faith in.

Motivational video – We Got Scared

Check out this powerful video called ‘We got scared’, which perfectly encapsulates the dark and light forces which have guided humans throughout history.

Best quotes:

0:52 “Nature made us masters of survival but didn’t give us the tools to understand the world. All we knew about life was death we inflected upon others and it reminded us of our own fate.”

2:19 “We ruled and blessed a land we walked upon but our common heritage was a lost memory. We are turned into neighbours divided by distance and language.”

3:01 “Our survival blood nourished our grabbing hands but the grass was always greener on the other side. We were trapped under the colour of our banner and the sense of fulfilment was nowhere to be found.”

3:57 “We fell down on our knees and pray, and we only saw shadows of ghosts. So we got scared and we found new ways to destroy each other.”

4:11 “Look at us now, we are so scared. We surrender our hearts and minds to dogmatic ideologies and we celebrate death and destruction as our greatest masterpiece.”

5:31 “We caressed a world with our consciousness and we evolved intellectually and morally, and we reached insights far beyond what our fearful ancestors could ever have imagined.”

5:46 “We’re all connected to each other by our common heritage and we share the tree of life with every living thing.”

6:24 “We stand alone in understanding the concept of a better world and we have the only minds that can make dreams possible.”

6:30 “We have proven time and again that when we put our efforts together we have the power to achieve greatness.”

6:55 “By climbing on the shoulders of giants we got the courage to leap up from our world, and we have touched the surface of our celestial neighbour with our footsteps.”

7:56 “Only when we accept that we’re not going to live forever will we be able to truly appreciate the short spark of our existence and live our lives fulfilled.”
