Power of Why

Why, Why?


The starting point of all achievement is desire.


Desire blended with faith constitute the building blocks of material reality. Backed by this force is the conscious decision of Why?

A powerful enough reason(s) for any action will propel the idea forward with a forceful velocity needed to materialize in the time sequence necessary for its attainment. Often, it’s not our timing.

Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.

Proverbs 19:21

Are you willing to trust God’s timing in your life?

Everything in material existence has demonstrated this universal law of creation. Therefore, it is of vital importance to not only set a goal, but to determine why it is necessary, or better still, how it is personal to you.


Getting clear on what you want, what you want to be, and what you want to do is a requirement for any goal achievement. Along with, what you want to see or experience. Lastly, what you want to have.

Notice that what you want to have is last because the preceding steps need to be fulfilled or demonstrated in order for you to possess the item, person, place, or circumstance into your reality.


A positive mental attitude heads the list along with sound physical and mental health in the achievement of any goal. Yes, sheer force, or coercion can be utilized as a method, but in time, this proves to be a negative “karma” that will leave the perpetrator in a negative frame of mind and with dire long term consequences because of the act.


As stated previously, a positive mental attitude which includes not infringing or violating the rights or will of another. Behaving and thinking in a spirit of cooperation with your nature and others, is the universal way of order.


Developing a powerful why allows one to persist in the midst of temporary defeat. Seldom does a plan go forth without revision or adaptation to meet its fulfillment.

Often, there is a mysterious detour in the plan which gives it texture, flavor, and adaptability in making it even better than originally hoped for.


There is a story of a stranded man on an island, who was so determined for freedom of survival, that he assembled a raft with logs and strung them together with a strong vine. As he ventured off into the sea, he did not anticipate that the logs when drenched in water, caused the vines to tighten to a point of snapping.

He also did not take into account, that fish would on occasion flop onto his raft, which he in turn used for nourishment.


As you can see, the plan, the why was so definite, that other variables unanticipated came to his aide.

What was necessary was the desire, the faith, and the flexibility to adjust to unpleasant and pleasant circumstances in order to move forward to his aim – freedom.

Choose the positive. You have choice, you are master of your attitude, choose the positive, the constructive. Optimism is a faith that leads to success.

Bruce Lee


You too can set your sails into the next experiences of your future, by making the important phase of planning a tomorrow, today. Most likely, our ideal will turn out exactly as intended today.

This has something to do with faith. Faith is the head chemist of the mind and links you to the source of all creation. However you
choose to name it, [God]; it only responds to you on how heavy you depend, rely, or believe in this source.

There is one mind running this universe, and you are a part of that mind. You are an individualized expression of this source, and the “thought stuff” you co-create in your thinking and feeling determines the ultimate outcome.

For me, this is the most exciting thing about life. We all have been given the most powerful gift of choosing our reality.

In this invisible realm of the mind, where imagination is stirred by the words we choose, our reality is created.


How important is it for you to understand this power?

What’s fascinating is that when we were born, this awesome power never came with an instruction manual. We all learned from our environment.

Family, friends, community, church, institutions of learning, and today with media, television, smartphones, and super computers, to only name but a few.


It is of no wonder why most do not focus on the why. We are always trained on the how, what, where, when and seldom challenge our thinking and feeling into why we make the decisions we do.

This is what makes life a mysterious adventure. For others, it is a game of win or lose.

The perception or illusion of superiority only satisfies the ego. And this is only a temporary experience.

You see, life is our mind experiencing time. Time is a measure of motion that is only experienced in the moment.

In the real world there is no time. Man has created a measurable mechanism called the clock, watch, phone, etc., to capture the motion or patterns of existence.


There is no yesterday or tomorrow. It is all a manifestation of memories and imagination reflex. This is a reactive mode of existence.

A responsive approach is being responsible for your words, which
trigger your imagination and move you into action. Responsibility
and reality are intertwined.

Reality is perception and illusion.

Perception is in the eyes of a beholder. It is based on the multitudes of impressions, falsities, truths, errors, fears, superstitions, and ignorance.

Ignorance is very important to understand because it is a necessary
function of the mind.


The conscious mind can only truly focus on one thing. It casts out other sources of knowledge, wisdom, and awareness. Our five senses allow this to happen.

Some, have developed a sixth sense, which allows them to
live in two worlds at the same time. They operate in the middle of
two spheres of consciousness. The collective unconscious and the personal conscious.

This is interesting because many have not discovered this sense or have had it undeveloped because of ignorance and or pollutants in our foods with destructive chemicals and properties designed to suppress this function in man.

The main emphasis in this article I wanted to point out is that why is infinite. It is an endless loop question of the mind that only you can determine to stop.

If allowed, I would go on further demonstrating through the
process of asking and answering questions in my mind, and relaying them down on paper. Time does not permit to do this any further today.


In its essence, I wanted to demonstrate that the power of anything you desire must be backed by desire or why. When you have determined your why’s, and have integrated them into your thinking and feeling, an emotion is created. This emotion or motive is what will get you from point a to b.


The course is typically not a straight line. Many self corrections, in time are necessary to get to the final destination.


So be patient with yourself, watch your vocabulary, remain steadfast, and believe.

Anything the mind can conceive with enough faith, will materialize.

The greater the faith, the greater the result.”

–Fools Crow, LAKOTA
