We are reluctant to acknowledge the validity of new ideas unless they receive the blessing of science. This, in essence, diminishes our intuitive powers and natural wisdom to having little significance. By doing so, we are declaring ourselves scarcely capable of knowing something unless it has been studied and proven to be true by scientifically trained people. Modern science has only been around for a very short time in the recorded history of mankind, so why is it now the ultimate source of truth for all our ideas and beliefs? How did people survive, some in societies more advanced than our own, without science? Are we so insecure about ourselves that we have turned over all our ability to create wisdom and truth to a small community of people whose job it is to validate our existence? I find Quantum Physics fascinating, so I don’t wish to criticize scientists, but they are not divine. They are using scientific process to prove theories that don’t need proof for anyone who has faith in life and belief in their Higher Self. In all fairness, however, I must praise scientists with the highest regard, for leading the way to the enhancement of our lives through the development and refinement of technology. Without them we would be living in a world of physical struggle. On the other hand, if we had instead relied on our knowing, we might even be much farther along.
It is important to remember that even those things confirmed by science, are only true within the boundaries of their system of scientific method. Suppose there is one person who believes that time is not time; that you can step out of time and not participate. Perhaps one day I am late for work and decide not to look at the clock, but rather measure time the way I want; in other words, slow time down so that I am not late. I get to work on time because I stepped out of time and then back into it. Then is time really time? Does it really function the way we believe it does? Try it some time, its fun.
Dr. Masaru Emoto, author of Hidden Messages in the Water, states that you can look at a cloud and choose to erase it from the sky. If you do, is that cloud still there for someone else? It works, but you must believe you can do it. I like to look at clouds and see the shapes they take, so I am not inclined to try to erase them. If George Lucas can conceive of the powers of the Jedi, then how can they not exist if the thought itself is what creates the reality? Since there are people who have claimed to erase clouds and alter time, then what is REALLY true? Is anything absolutely true or is truth only what a majority of us decide to call reality?
Have we been dying all along because someone, a long time ago, decided to persuade people they had to die as a means of instilling fear in them? What if the reason that Jesus was crucified was because he knew that we do not have to die; that we can walk on water; heal ourselves and one another? Perhaps the only way they could prevent us from finding out our true potential was to put a stop to his message being spread and then claim that his achievements were a result of his divinity rather than his true humanness? If the general population realized they also had the same potential, there would be no way to control them, now would there?
The Jedi learned the path to immortality. If we can conceive of such a thing, then why can’t it be a reality? Are we any more real than the characters in works of fiction? Do they exist in other dimensions, as surely as we do in our beloved Third Dimension? Perhaps there was a time when humans lived at a different vibration, one of peace and harmony. If we can envision it, then it must be possible. What if it still exists and that is what we call a parallel reality? When you look in a wooded area do you see beings? Not with your eyes, but with your senses? Are those beings there now, looking back at you? Is all art the reality of another dimension?
Don’t worry, I’m just trying to encourage you to think outside your box, as they say, and to demonstrate how you can experience reality in a different way; for we know not what else we can achieve if we are willing to dare to dream. We need some REALLY new ideas and beliefs; ideas of the magnitude of the earth being round instead of flat were in their time. Think how happy you would be if you discovered something entirely new. I choose not to set my sights any lower. We live in a world where technology is developing and evolving every second. There are software programmers writing code and hackers breaking those programs, so that the programmers are then faced with creating even more advanced software to fight the hackers and on and on. Each idea is a stepping stone to the next level.
Our belief systems, unlike technology, have barely altered in thousands of years. We call them traditions and think they are so quaint and precious, but our values must also evolve or they become irrelevant to the vibration of the life we are living. This is the reason that significant numbers of people are losing interest in organized religion and why others are having to struggle to hold on to their old ways, even to fight wars over them.
Belief systems extend to all areas of our lives; our choice of life partners, how we treat other people, how we raise children, how we are connected to ourselves and others, our view of our relationship to the universe and our concept of divinity. If you don’t take the time to determine what you truly believe, blindly accepting the conventions of the society in which you live, you will be rendered less powerful and suffer the same fate as the rest of those who semi-consciously pass through life. Living according to your beliefs will make you happy. It’s that simple!
