Change Your Oil

I am sure most of you, if not all, have owned a vehicle at some point in your life. Part of the responsibility, other than maintaining insurance and making payments, is to make sure you keep it in tip top condition. You have to make sure the car runs to the best of its ability.

One can do so by making sure preventative maintenance is done on the vehicle, which includes having the oil changed. This measure is often overlooked but should be done every 3,000 miles or so. Those who do overlook this important responsibility will find themselves experiencing wear and tear of their engine. After a while the oil begins to break down and sludge causing all of the parts to lose their lubrication. Thus leaving the car to not operate properly and possibly blow the engine.

From the moment of conception our veins and engine was lubricated with pure oil. We were given a fresh start. As we aged, more oil was added in the form of low self-esteem, doubts, fears, discontent, procrastination, lies, abuse, hesitation, revenge, judgement, alcohol, depression, dependence, racism, drugs, hatred, jealousy, defeat, resentment, infidelity, envy, distrust… From conception to the present, we have failed to change our oil and have allowed gunk to clog our minds and disrupt our way of operation.

What would happen if we gave ourself an oil change? What if we released the contamination from our veins and deposited a fresh bottle of oil into our system? If we cleared the who, what, when, where, and why from our minds wouldn’t our engine run so much better? Wouldn’t we see things with much more clarity?

We never take out the time to think about all that has been put into us during our lifetime. Many of us still have a lot of life left on this earth but we won’t make progress until we flush out the old and replenish with the new.

Are you in need of an oil change?
