2001 Questions and Philosophical Thoughts to Inspire, Enlighten, and Empower Our World to Limitless Heights
Author: Errol A. Gibbs,Philip A. Grey
Thoughts to Enlighten and Empower the Mind is a compilation of two thousand and one questions and philosophical thoughts extracted from the authors' seminal work, Five Foundations of Human Development. These thoughts follow the same chronology of information that helps to promote fulfilling lives through human development from spiritual, moral, social, intellectual, and physical perspectives. The authors proffer that human beings possess the capacity to rise to a higher state of civilization when we allow our thoughts to permeate our minds with hope and optimism for the future of humanity. Gibbs and Grey support the premise put forward by many great writers who contend that our thoughts determine happiness and effectiveness in life. Our thoughts and our emotions have a great influence on our carnal impulses and desires. We nurture good and bad thoughts, and human effort alone is insufficient to properly manage them. Negative thoughts establish barriers to communications and harmonious living. Positive thoughts radiate harmony among individuals and nations. More importantly, those in positions of great power who lead humanity, must, by their thoughts, help to create a better world, or inadvertently plunge humanity into great chaos as has been recorded in six-thousand years of human history. Only a mind that is free of unhealthy thoughts transcends a life of fulfillment. Positive thoughts permeate our beings and open up new frontiers of positive leadership for the modern age. The global significance of this book is that it informs a more communal view of our world by virtue of the conditioning of our thoughts. It will help inform, enlighten, and empower the minds of leaders to embrace every field of endeavor, including engineering, science, religion, politics, the military, and the environment. This will be accomplished with the most vital, creative, and positive thoughts that rise to a high level of responsibility for the betterment of all humanity.
