Paradigm Shift, Charting A New Course For Innovation & Creativity

by George X Lampkin

People, businesses and organizations need to innovate and change in order to survive the growing collapse of the world's economy.  So why are so many people afraid of it? How do you help people open themselves up to change?  

The rules we live by can limit our ability to innovate and be creative.  We have become brainwashed by what we've been fed by mainstream media, by academia, and by peer groups and social constructs.  We have grown to rely on the government and mainstream media for truths and explanations of how we should see the world around us.  

The world is not what it seems and many are not successful in recognizing the many shifts that are taking place right before our eyes.  Case in point is the coming presidential elections.  The people are ramping up to examine the numerous candidates within the republican and democratic parties; including the newly formed tea party.  What people fail to realize is that the major parties in America are funded by deep pocket constiuents who seek political favor once elections are finally over.  These rich contributors invest large sums of money into a candidate's campaign war chest, to sway their candidate towards voting and supporting their agenda; even if that agenda is inherently against the best interest of the masses of people.  


Introducing the 'Occupy Wall Street Protest Movement' and the beginning of the rise of mass protest movements all over the world.  

People are beginning to realize that voting for a particular candidate just won't cut it.  Let's be clear here, candidates are mostly brought and paid for by rich contributors, and most candidates usually vote in the interest of their most wealthiest contributors.  Many of today's modern policies serve the interests of bankers, the rich, the powerful military and big corporations.  Tax dollars raised by the federal government are being paid to support an interest on the $14.5 trillion national debt problem.  

The U.S. Government is beholding to the Federal Reserve System (FRS).  This powerful organization is beholding only to itself.  It has the power to print money out of thin air.  The government rely on the FRS's ability to print the supply of money to keep the inflation and deficit margins in check.  The people are beginning to open their eyes for once, and they are seeing as a collective - the real power behind the throne of the presidency.  Now, the masses of people are beginning to take their protest struggles to the real powerful and elite.  

We Are Witnessing A Revolution; A Change in Psychology; An Evolution in Human Consciousness

This new paradigm shift among the people's thinking is something new and exciting, and the world is beginning to witness a new sort of activism that challenges powers at their core.  Imagine, a mass protest movement against Wall Street, the Federal Reserve Buildings, Banks and the U.S. Federal Government Agencies.  This is unpresidented in the history of America.  People are no longer reliant on what today's politicians promise because most people believe they lie.  People believe politicians have NO power to change anything.  So, they are beginning to put pressure on areas that matter.  

Is this a dangerous proposition for the people; exacting pressure on those institutions that shape the world according to a fix design that benefit the very rich and powerful?  

The new mind shift among the people will be successful in so many ways.  It will provide the means to challenge the establishment in a most effective way.  The growing economic collapse will provide the growth and momentum the movement need to expand the protest base.  People are losing their jobs, their homes and their toys.  People are losing hope in the government's ability to create new jobs that pay adequate wages.  People are without adequate healthcare.  They are in debt and they see no relief in sight.  It is safe to assume that the people's movement will grow and grow over the next two years.  

On the other hand, this new found thinking will become a threat to the system.  This new shift in the people's thinking will be seen as a threat to 'national security' and this reality will shake the foundation of America as we've known it.  The idea that a protest movement can be a threat to 'national security' is nothing new.  Over the centuries, we've witnessed mass protest and many of them were peaceful and orderly.  Those that were violent in nature were met with force and violence from the government.

The civil war started out as a protest against the election of Abraham Lincoln as President of the United States.  

The protest grew to include eleven southern slave states declaring their secession from the United States and later they formed the Confederate States of America ("the Confederacy"); the other 25 states supported the federal government ("the Union").  After four years of warfare, mostly within the Southern states, the Confederacy surrendered and slavery was outlawed everywhere in the nation. (source: Wikipedia)

With legislation already on the books, Homeland Security and other security agencies are hard at work snooping into people's lives.  If this new form of protest movement begin to win the support of the masses, the security forces will move on the people with force and even violence.  We will see blood spilled in the streets, and this will only increase more protest by the people and more force by the security forces.   

I want to direct your attention to something I think you all need to be aware of.  Most people want to go back to the way it use to be.  The hard cold reality is that we will not go back to the way life was.  The global ecomony is shrinking and the global resources are being seized by super-powers such as America, China and Russia.  Nations are being seized for their resources, through war proxies and humanitarian claims.  The world is at war and the people are not aware of it.  Most people do not see beyond their immediate concerns.  People are mostly engaged in local politics and happenings.  They are the last to realize the global reality, until the shocking hour arise when bombs begin to fall all around them.  

Since life won't return to normal, what should be our purpose and mission?  We should begin to think in a creative and innovative way.  We should look for ways to live differently than what we are use too.  

As you may know, I advocate the teachings of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad and The Honorable Louis Farrakhan.  Both men taught us that we must adapt the thinking of God.  We know that God created the heavens and the earth.  That suggest that God is a creative being.  He is innovative and a scientist.  He is logical and strategic in his thinking.  He has mastery over systems and constructs that sustain the living in all its' forms.  

If the global enonomic system is collapsing right before our eyes and the signs are all there, what must we do to survive the fall?  How are we going to save ourselves and our love ones from becoming a victim of the collapse?  What measures will we take to lift ourselves out of the coming blood bath between modern-day protest movements and the established security system?

The above questions should be on the minds of the people.  According to The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, "God created himself out of triple darkness."  Imagine that!  God had the ability to will himself into existence from a place of complete darkness.  A collapsing world can seem dark and gloomy.  Opportunities are few and to make a living to support a needy family can be a powerful struggle in a falling economy.  To create opportunities in the mist of calamity can be rewarding and beneficial to the innovative and creative person. 

If you do not possess an innovative and creative mind, you have better place yourself in a seat, and prepare to learn about the qualities of a powerful-mind that is likened unto God's own mind.  

"But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." - 1 Corinthians 2:14 

We are being called to become more than natural beings.  We are being called to increase our knowledge, our wisdom and our understanding of creation and the awesome power of a creative mind.  

The Bible tells us that one of the highest, ultimate goals that God has in store for each one of us is our transformation in Him – and this transformation is accomplished by the renewing of our mind.  God wants to make us into a better and more holy people, both on the inside and the outside.

Believers should be set apart and different because of God’s qualities in their lives. Our focus and priorities must be his.

"You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds." - Ephesians 4:22-23

The Honorable Louis Farrakhan tells us that we are to meditate on the Word of God.  To meditate means to think about, to chew on, to try and figure out what God is trying to tell us in His Word – and then to try and see how these divine truths can be applied in our daily life, and how we can get some of these positive qualities worked and imparted into our personalities.  In his 'Will of God' lecture series, The Honorable Louis Farrakhan tells us that we are the ones who are to try and “put on” the good and godly qualities that God will want us to have operating in our personalities, and to “put away” all of the bad and negative qualities that He will not want us to have operating in our personalities.

I personally recognize that God wants our bad temper removed from our personality – He wants us to make some kind of attempt on our end to “put away” our bad temper and “put on” the quality of self-control.  To act in a manner that is out of anger and violence is not God-like.  We find ourselves in an out-of-control state of being.  We lose control and everything around us begin to fall apart; rendering us powerless over our destiny.  

I realize that once God’s divine qualities and attributes start to enter into your personality – then many of the negative qualities that you have in you will start to wash away.  Once you have God’s love, joy, and peace starting to flow through your personality – then you will no longer feel crabby, depressed, and miserable like you did before.  

One of the greatest accomplishments anyone can achieve in this life is to find true inner peace, happiness, and contentment in this life.  All you have to do is look around you and see all of the unhappy, depressed, and miserable people that are out there – especially those who are rich and supposedly have it “all.”  Ever wonder why so many of the Hollywood movie stars are doing drugs and seeing therapists? They are finding out that all of their material wealth, fame, and notoriety are not giving them the true inner peace, happiness, and fulfillment they thought that this kind of life would bring them.

If we want God’s best, then we have to give Him our best.  When it comes to this sanctification-transformation process – we have to give God our best by reading and studying the Word for the changes that He will want to make with us – and then make our own attempt to put on the good and godly qualities that He will want us to have – and then to put away all of the bad and negative qualities that He will not want us to have.

When we change our thinking and our ways; reflecting the thinking and ways of God, we come into a power and an awareness that enables us to conceive new concepts and ideas.  These two fruits are what we need to discover opportunites that others cannot see and/or recognize because of their lack of spiritual development.

What we seek is a paradigm shift in our thinking.  We must begin to look beyond what this world is telling us about ourselves and the world around us.  We must redirect our thinking towards ideas and concepts that will take hold in society because the people are ready for change.  People are tired and they are rebelling against old concepts and beliefs.  They are crying out for change and they are ready for the next great leap towards evolution and divine awareness.  

Charting a new course for our lives can be scary.  Many of the people you know will resist you in your attempt to try new things.  They will set out to undermine and sabatoge your efforts to supplant your concepts and ideas into a viable plan to implement measures to generate income for your family, friends and community.  I am telling you from experience that it is not easy.  You will be challenged in every area of your life.  I encourage you to keep forging ahead.  Even in the failures, there is much to be learned.  Learn what lessons you discover and pick yourself up and keep moving towards your eventual goal(s).  Remember to act and think like God.  Consider what he would do at every decision point in your life.  Oft times, your decisions will leave you all alone.  Remember that God is with you and that your victory is ahead of you.

"Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is -- his good, pleasing and perfect will." - Romans 12:2

The human mind has the ability to concentrate on specific matters according to the 'will of the individual'.  Here we are commanded to concentrate on spiritual matters, for earthly things are no longer of interest to those who have taking the step to renewing the mnd.  The renewal of our minds is to revelation knowledge from God, not to sense knowledge or the reason of man.  The renewing of the mind is to fill it with what God says in His Word, so that the Word does "dwell richly" in you.  Now you can walk and act upon it, and live the great life that God has made available for you.

We can achieve greatness in our lives if we but recognize the need to change out thinking and our ways that fit into God's Universal Plans.  We must become acquainted with God's plan for humanity.  We must discover the world's number one problem and how it came into existance.  We must open our eyes and hearts to recognize why the world is collapsing right before us.  We must decide to change our course for success, dispite the misfortune of others because they rely on this world to supply their needs.  

It is therefore imperative that we learn how to win the battle between the senses and the Word of God.

Perhaps I should make it clear that when I speak of renewing the mind to the Word of God, I do not refer to your ability to quote the Word from memory. Nor do I refer to just reading the Word -- one has well said that it is not how often you have gone through the Word that counts, but how often the Word has gone through you! Nor do I refer to talking about the Word -- in the city in which I live there are many people who gather once a week to talk about the Word, but as the old spiritual says, "Everybody talking about heaven ain't going there!"  

Renewing the mind is the replacement of our old values with the attitudes, beliefs, and concepts of God as revealed in His Word.

We have seen then that Satan's primary attack will be against the mind of the believer. The mind is the only territory over which you have complete control. You determine what you think about; you determine what you do.
