Strength cannot truly be defined, but I have learned that it comes from within. The greatest mountains to conquer are ourselves. No externality in adversity if mind is over matter. Life is what we make it, is it not? Struggle and adventure are intertwined, two poles differing only in degree. We do not need to define strength, we need only define ourselves.
Meditation is much more than relaxing & clearing the mind. Indeed it is also more than knowing the self or connecting with a higher nature. Meditation at its highest level is the striving to attain the original state of existence. It is that which put forth the first vibrations of consciousness that rippled within the entirety and gave forth the multitude of lesser states of consciousness (it is debatable whether lesser states of consciousness are actually such or whether the lowering of such is only an illusory effect produced by the mind. This is also highly probable for the separation of minds & consciousness.). Of all things known three states can be agreed upon as the basis of our reality, the material, the energy & the consciousness. Of these three most great minds agree that consciousness is of the highest & the most elusive. It is as difficult to control the mind as it is to control the wind & so to is it just as hard to study the varying levels of consciousness (Especially the higher ones) without ones self transcending all levels in order to necessarily be in an observational vantage point. One cannot properly study what is on high unless one becomes eye level with that which is raised.
Meditation can be used as a vehicle of consciousness transcendence. It has been said that all is mind. If indeed all is mind then in order to properly study consciousness one would need to transcend the trappings of the mind. The mind and it’s five senses are enjoyed by many but the sensational extremes of the senses which humans are drawn to serve as a permanent distraction from the natural progression of humanity from its current lower state to something much greater. I have heard many teachers exclaim that meditation is the only worthy pursuit & I understand where they are coming from. Meditation, can be a vehicle to elevate ones self to almost unthinkable levels of awareness if practiced correctly. These few individuals who reach such high levels of consciousness & wisdom benefit humanity greatly. As they say a rising tide raises all ships.
It is difficult to put words to something that is beyond things & barely attainable by thought, something you cannot truly study, touch, taste & see. I find that the word consciousness while understood for its meaning is not worthy of that which we are speaking. To know this is to understand the steepness of the mountain seekers of wisdom climb. Meditators whether they know it or not have opened the door to an unknown path that leads to a greatness that is beyond perception but can be known through experience which becomes wisdom. I hope these shared thoughts resonate with someone out there. I have been on a long journey of raising my consciousness, leaving behind material desires in pursuit of a higher state & yet trying to balance that with what is expected of me as a being in this world where lower states of consciousness are praised & materialism is the most widely taught tradition. Be well my good friends, I will write again & I wish you well in all of your pursuits.

The immovable object & the unstoppable force theoretically cannot exist in the same realm or universe. Only one existing thing would be able to use all of the energy in this universe all at once in order to power its undeniable position. Therefor either the unstoppable force uses all required energy to power itself infinitely forward & through all existing things or the immovable object uses all of the universes energy to infinitely exist without internal motion or being moved by outside forces. Therefore these two cannot exist simultaneously & if both were to exist they must necessarily exist in parallel realms or universes where a supreme energy provider fed both of these universes with an infinite amount of energy to power the existence of both the immovable object & the unstoppable force separately with them never meeting but existing simultaneously in their own space. However you see that we needed to add the variable of a supreme energy provider or cause/force which raises another interesting question about not only the essence of such a force but the very nature of the reality of all forces which derived any perceived power at all.
The pondering of this leads me back to the root of perception, mind & conceptual consciousness. There is a great mystery about the relationship of projected energy & consciousness. What is energy ? It cannot truly be touched or analyzed only theorized, observed & directed. Energy is still a great mystery in all of its various degrees of vibration. No two atoms ever truly touch, a person never truly touches anything because if we did the attraction that lets our atoms/energies touch a table would also cause us to be stuck to the table. Thus our energy & the tables energy reject each other & our mind fills in the gaps with our senses by tricking us into perceiving that we’ve touched the table when in fact we haven’t scientifically speaking. A bit of divine like intervention to solve a necessary problem within this so called reality.
What is this place ? This “World” It is frightening at times but beyond beautiful if you look with another eye. The material aspect has been found by science as well as the ancients to be a lie of the mind & its true nature is an ocean of energies powered by some unknown masterful consciousness beyond understanding. I suppose I’ll always search for the truth of what this world is, peeling back layer after layer as though it were an onion. I will always ask myself what is beyond it & search for how I can see what is beyond.

Just as the rising of the sun, I believe the rising of wisdom and goodness in the hearts of ALL assists the world in rotating with the moments. Every one of you, in my mind, is a light in the world and when put together I believe you shine brighter than even the SUN. Each individual reading this post as well as each one in the world is a shining celestial force that is capable of accomplishing great things beyond the measure of the common. It has been and always will be my honor to come here and write for you, so in humility I say THANK YOU to you all. I will continue my work here and will always smile when doing so because of delight in all of your presences.
Wherever the light/wisdom remains let it shine brilliantly enough to break free from the chains of darkness/ignorance shattering all illusions. Wherever intelligence lives let it think, measure and perceive liberation & expression. In the end of this long path of life let those with a HIGHER MIND find wisdom of their OWN understanding and let wisdom do that which is right for the benefit of ALL without attachment to result. Let each individual break the chains of the past that hold us back from true progress. Let us ALL in some way leave behind a legacy of light/wisdom for ALL generations present & to come. May we do so fearlessly for the sake of ALL. – Mikial Kenneth Millard

What is strength? It is the letting go of ego/vanity and pride for the benefit of those you love. It is giving peace even when you yourself have never experienced it. What is humility? It is the sacrifices that are made in order to bring compassion, comfort, safety and sustenance to all who are worthy. What is a lie? Not seeing that the ones you love need you more than you need yourself. What is truth? That sometimes loving & understanding yourself is the beginning to creating a better future not only for yourself but for all that you love. May wisdom and peace come to you all.
MIKIAL’S WISDOM DEFINITIONS PART 1.
SACRIFICE – giving up of material items, ego/vanity, selfishness or all of the above in order to benefit another. It is selfless satisfaction in the aiding and comforting of another which does not directly benefit the one who sacrifices.
Compassion – The giving of understanding to an individual or situation which results in positive action in thought or physical / social response. It is the rendering acknowledgement of the validity of a redeemable situation and the possibility of comfort or relief being given to an individual who is capable or worthy of receiving such a thing.
**These words are my thoughts alone and I do not expect, want or hope for anyone’s mind to change. I do not force thoughts on anyone. Let those who will resonate understand my words and if so then I am satisfied. May wisdom and goodness come to you all if you so desire it. May there always be people who through wisdom work to peacefully benefit all beings of this planet, and may they always have a place here on Earth.
