DIG THE REAL TREASURE FIELD INSIDE YOU!



CAN YOU GIVE SOMETHING GOOD TO THE WORLD?

Do you realize that you and every human being possess the most abundant treasure field on earth? If only every human being can discover and fully utilize this treasure, there will be no poverty on earth today. What is this treasure?

DIG THE REAL TREASURE FIELD INSIDE YOU!  

What is this field? Today, our country and the world are in the worst economic condition. Many are closing businesses, many are losing jobs, crime is increasing, troubles multiplying, climate change getting worse. How can we help this troubled world? 

Where should we start to solve these monumental problems?

How can we help ourselves?

This article will be discussing with you how to fully utilize this awesome powerful treasure field -- your MIND, to help find solutions to the myriad of problems we are all facing now!

Success in life depends fully in the productive and efficient functioning of this God-given device on earth.

Now I’ll give you FOUR (4) STEPS OF SUCCESS:

1. REALIZE THAT YOU HAVE LATENT TALENT that has never been awakened, or that has not been utilized to the full. Psychologists tell us that the average man uses only about 5-10% of his potential brain power.

“AS LONG AS MEN’S MIND ARE FREE TO LEARN, THERE IS NO LIMIT TO WHAT ONE CAN BE TAUGHT.” -- Dr. Wallace Gordon, E.I. Dupont Co.

Our mind is not a container to be filled, It is a fire to be fueled. Note that our minds must be FREE to learn. Yes, there are barriers to learning, and one of these is too much entertainment. Limit your entertainment and social life. 

The story of Dupont is one of the fabulous success stories of all time. From man-made fibers for modern living to atomic developments for industrial progress, Dupont’s scientists believe that you, too, can learn -- as long as your mind is open to new knowledge, to new truths.

2. KNOW WHAT YOU WANT. The testimony of every scientist is that the frontiers opening out before us today are far wider and more challenging than any frontiers of the world in the past. We are going to see greater developments here than ever before -- Eric Johnston.

Yes, there are wider and more challenging frontiers in every field of human activity; the Internet, computers, electronics, engineering, energy, the environment, communication, transportation, mass media, construction, the human factor, etc.

PICK WHAT YOU WANT

And frontiers, and problems mean opportunities, as they always have in the past. Opportunities for men and women with ideas, ambition, industry and determination -- men and women who have the vision to see those opportunities, and the ambition and determination to prepare themselves to take advantage of them.

3.ASK GOD FOR WISDOM & UNDERSTANDING 
  • IF ANY OF YOU LACKS WISDOM, LET HIM ASK OF GOD, who gives to all liberally and with no reproach, and IT SHALL BE GIVEN TO HIM. (James 1:5 MKJV)
4. CONCENTRATE your thought upon what you want, with singleness of purpose.

Then proceed to get what is needed to accomplish that purpose. . . Information . . . Training. . . Experience.

In 1837 there was a young fellow named JOHN DEERE... a blacksmith. He saw a human need and thought how he could serve it. Many farm lands had sticky soil that stuck to the plows and made plowing difficult. Deere concentrated all his efforts on making a self-polishing plow.Today Deere and Company is a billion dollar corporation...“Big business.” 

Yet it all started with a young man who concentrated all his efforts on what he could contribute...instead of thinking about how much money he could make. During one of their annual report, the company had John Deere’s picture with the inscription -- “He GAVE the world the steel plow.”

How about us? You and Me?

Can you give something good to the world? This a great challenge and opportunity for each one of us.

All this happened to young Deere because he had an idea... and he concentrated.

This is the combination you one can beat... A man with an idea... who can concentrate.

You have an idea. You want to get ahead...you can get ahead!. Add to that idea, concentration...and nothing can stop you!

CONCLUSION

Realizing your great potential...Knowing what you want... and concentrating your thoughts on it...is a powerful magnet that attracts to you the very things you need to accomplish your purpose.

You will be amazed how essential information will gravitate to you...how ideas will develop...how opportunities will open up.

Start now to mine your treasure field and make your nation, and the world, and yourselves a great success!

Let your mind be fired up!

THE BEGINNING IS HALF THE THING -- Greek Proverb  
Well begun is half done is another saying.

In your decision to “do something” to do what you want, add to your fund of knowledge through some systematic study, then you are “well begun.

And if you will persist in this determination, diligently studying one subject after another, one day, not too far in the future, you’ll “BE DONE.

WHAT IS GENIUS? GENIUS IS SEEING WHAT EVERYONE HAS NOT SEEN, AND THINKING WHAT NO ONE HAS THOUGHT! Genius is Not High IQ But Creativity. Genius is To Be Creative Like The Creator God!



The many problems of the world today, at all levels, require creative new solutions, not just the ordinary, or the already known solutions. And this can only be done through the power of CREATIVITY. The benefits of creativity can be reaped both in this present world and in the next World-To-Come. You may or may not amass fortune or money from your creativity. But the joy of creating or inventing something new and useful is more than enough as a reward.

This article will share with you information on how to be creative and at the same time serve others, or solve problems. To be creative is one of the best habits or character that each one of us should be developing.

INTRODUCTION

Creativity is a mental process involving the creation or discovery of new ideas and concepts, or new associations of the existing ideas and concepts, fueled by the process of either conscious or unconscious insight.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION

Creativity is typically used to refer to the act of producing new ideas, approaches or actions, while innovation is the process of both generating and applying such creative ideas in some specific context.


In the context of an organization, therefore, the term innovation is often used to refer to the entire process by which an organization generates creative new ideas and converts them into novel, useful and viable commercial products, services, and business practices, while the term creativity is reserved to apply specifically to the generation of novel ideas by individuals or groups, as a necessary step within the innovation process.

The GREAT EXAMPLE OF THE XEROX MACHINE 

We are familiar with Xerox or copying machine. We can find them in offices, schools, business and industry. But do you know that Xerox machine works in the same principle as that of a lightning striking the earth? Both lightning and Xerox use the same principle of static electricity. The word Xerox or xerography is derived from the Greek language which means "dry writing." 

The xerography was invented by Mr. Chester Carlson, an American physicist. In 1934, he was employed in the patents department of a New York electronics firm. He became frustrated by the difficulty in copying patents' specifications and drawings. He realized that there is a need for a fast-working copying machine. With his driving curiosity, he spent several years studying technical books from which he came with the idea of using the electrostatic method of copying which would become the foundation of the mighty Xerox. 

When Mr. Carlson built the first Xerox machine in 1938, it was crude, slow and bulky. Utilizing the principle of a deadly lightning to a peaceful use such as a copying machine to serve mankind, we can imagine the problems Mr. Carlson had to faced.

ADD TO YOUR CREATIVITY, HARDWORK AND PERSISTENCE

Mr. Carlson obtained the patents on every aspect of his process. Then he sold his invention to big corporations with money, manpower and research facilities to develop it. IBM was the first to turn him down. Twenty other companies also declined. Carlson then approached the Battele Research and Development Corporation which agreed to develop the Xerox idea. Then they decided to commercialized it.

Many companies including IBM for the second time turned down the chance to manufacture the machine. Then Haloid Company, which is engaged in the copying business, was convinced and acquired the rights in xerography. Haloid Company later became the giant Xerox corporation. By the time of his death, in 1968, Carlson's royalties and shares in the company had earned him some US$50 million. The Xerox story is an example of how a creative idea plus hardwork and persistence can change the world, or bring fortune and success to a creative person.


BENEFITS OF CREATIVITY

The benefits of creativity can be reaped both in this present world and in the next World-To-Come. You may or may not amass fortune or money from your creativity. But the joy of creating or inventing something new and useful is more than enough as a reward.

Yet, ONLY A FEW ARE ABLE TO TAP THE WELLS OF CREATIVITY AND FORTUNE IN THEIR LIVES. WHY?

From billions of men and women who have walked the earth, only a few thousands have had the creative genius to conceive something new and useful.

Why? What is the reason for this fact?

Psychologists tell us that an average person uses only about 5-10% of his creative potential. Why only 10%? Because most people allow their creativity to be suppressed.

CAUSES OF SUPPRESSION of CREATIVITY


1. Too much entertainment which destroys proper concentration
2. Too much sociable life which damage proper study habits
3. Low self-esteem or inferiority complex
4. Fear of failures or of what other people might say.


FACTORS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF CREATIVITY

In contrast, Creators or Inventors have the following aspects and qualities: 

1. Intense persistence.
2. Optimism.
3. Originally of approach.
4. A conviction that there are more effective, better ways of doing things.
5. An independence from the outside world.


HOW ABOUT GENIUS? WHAT DO YOU MEAN, GENIUS?

Is it necessary to have a high IQ in order to be genius? Most researchers agree that the important variable in genius is not IQ but creativity. Testers call an IQ above 135 as genius. But the IQ tests only predict fairly accurately how well a person will do in school and how quickly he will master knowledge.

But genius involves more than knowledge. A genius does not necessarily have a high IQ.

In fact, most people who are considered geniuses are school dropouts. They even dislike schools. Thomas Alva Edison, the most prolific American inventor, only had about 3 months of formal schooling. Albert Einstein, about 6 months. Stephen Jobs, the founder of the very creative Apple Computer Company, was also a dropout from school.

A great artist, such as a great painter or a sculptor does not require a high IQ for his masterpieces -- works of a genius. Creativity is related to talents and/or craftsmanship, not to IQ.

GENIUS CONSISTS IN SEEING WHAT EVERYONE HAS NOT SEEN AND THINKING WHAT NO ONE HAS THOUGHT

As a Nobel prize winner said, "Genius consists in seeing what everyone has seen and thinking what no one has thought." You can have that kind of quality and perception if you follow the tips explained in the following article. If others can, you can.

How then can we be more creative?

WHAT IS THE SOURCE OF YOUR KNOWLEDGE AND BELIEFS? Where Did Pastors, Priests, Rabbis, Churches, Religions, and Nations Get Their Doctrines, Ideas, and Philosophies?



All the World's Knowledge result to the Worsening Crimes, evils, crises, accidents, Climate Change disasters, etc. All is because the Root-Source of all Knowledge learned by everyone is the forbidden TREE OF KNOWLEDGE of Good and Evil = The Tree of Death!


By: LOPE COLUMNA

MESSIANIC-KABBALIST PASTOR GENERAL
The BRIDE OF CHRIST, MINISTRY OF LIFE



The ROOT-CAUSE OF ALL CRIMES, TERRORISM, WARS, POVERTY, EPIDEMICS, IMMORALITY, AND DISASTERS IS THE WRONG OR FALSE EDUCATION TAUGHT TO MANKIND! 

…The LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because THERE IS NO…KNOWLEDGE OF GOD in the land. (Hos 4:1 KJV)
CURSING, LYING, MURDER, STEALING, and ADULTERY are rampant; one act of bloodshed follows another. (Hos 4:2 HCSB)
  • For this reason THE LAND MOURNS, and EVERYONE WHO LIVES IN IT LANGUISHES, along with the WILD ANIMALS and the BIRDS of the sky; even the FISH of the sea disappear. (Hos 4:3 HCSB)
THE GRIEVOUS RESULTS (FRUITS) OF FALSE EDUCATION!

In this world, Education, in general, is focused on the acquisition of knowledge and preparation for a career, or, in common parlance, "to make a better living." But the main problem is that the Educational Systems of the World do not include God's True Knowledge (Romans 1:28-32). 
  • And because THEY DID NOT THINK IT WORTHWHILE TO HAVE GOD IN THEIR KNOWLEDGE, God delivered them over to a WORTHLESS MIND to do what is MORALLY WRONG (Rom 1:28 HCSB)
  • Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,  (Rom 1:29 KJV)
  • Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,  (Rom 1:30 KJV)
  • Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:  (Rom 1:31 KJV)
  • Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.  (Rom 1:32 KJV)
HOW DID MANKIND LOST THE TRUE EDUCATION?

When the Creator God created Adam and Eve, they were placed inside the Garden of Eden where they have a face-to-face relationship with God (Genesis 2:8). In this time, before the Sin, Mankind has the Great Opportunity to learn from God Himself His True Knowledge and Education. 

But, when Adam and Eve ate from the forbidden TREE OF KNOWLEDGE (of Good and Evil), Mankind was driven out of the Garden of Eden (Kingdom of God), and was prevented from eating from the TREE OF LIFE => The source of the TRUE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD => The TRUE EDUCATION (Genesis 3:24).

Thus, the forbidden TREE OF KNOWLEDGE of Good & Evil became the source of the Knowledge that Mankind has been learning and applying. And because of the GOOD in it, this forbidden knowledge seems right to Mankind, but because of the EVIL in it, the end-result is always Death (Genesis 2:17, Proverbs 14:12, 16:25). This is the kind of Knowledge (mixture of Good & Evil) that Mankind was taught for thousands of years. Thus, the whole world was deceived (Revelation 12:9).

The educational system must pay more attention, indeed the main attention, to the building of RIGHTEOUS character in their students; with emphasis on moral and ethical values. A country may be the richest and the foremost in science, technology, military, etc. But, if God's True Knowledge is neglected, all their efforts, intelligence, and riches, will just lead to the extinction of Mankind (Matthew 24:21-22). 
  • For then shall be GREAT TRIBULATION, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. (Mat 24:21 KJV)
  • If God doesn't make the time shorter, NO ONE WILL BE LEFT ALIVE. (Mat 24:22 CEV)
WHAT EDUCATION REALLY SHOULD BE

True Education must put greater emphasis on the promotion of God the Father's WILL.

Everyone must be encourage to recognize the importance of the TRUE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD. This can be done by incorporating the True Knowledge from the TREE OF LIFE, which is God's MESSIANIC KABBALAH Knowledge and Wisdom. Ideally, education should lead to a world state where "Nation shall not lift up sword against Nation, neither shall they train for war" (Isaiah 2:4).
  • …and THEY SHALL BEAT THEIR SWORDS INTO PLOWSHARES, and THEIR SPEARS INTO PRUNINGHOOKS: Nation shall not lift up sword against Nation, neither shall they learn war any more. (Isa 2:4 KJV)
