The elephant and life

Re: The lesson of the Se

Great analogy of your story as a teaching tool. So many folk lores, nursery rhymes, mythology as well as scriptural references are great stories that were written for us to learn from and to use as educational lessons.

Is it important to know if it’s true or does it not? 

To me, it doesn’t matter, so long as it is not being used by the controllers of the world as a tool to manipulate people, I will be ok with it.

Since money is so pervasive in that predicament, churches and govt use it to their advantage. The same analogy can be said, if you tie an elephant to a corner for sometime and released it later. 

Do you think that elephant will leave that corner? I don’t think so. 

Why? Because he’s been socially conditioned to believe that he’s still tied down.

So as humans, they will not leave a fairytale if they find out it’s just the greatest story ever told. 

Even if you present them with facts to prove it that it’s just an educational story. Sad, but when you subject your thinking to someone else to do the thinking for you, you’re doomed.

That’s why it’s important to believe in yourself. Sovereignty is God given.
