Scientific Discoveries and Distraction

Is it too much to think that what we know about history and science is still basically nothing in comparison to what will be known in the next hundred years?

Are scientific discoveries a distraction Take the high road Be OpenIf you think about it; we have learned so much in the last couple of hundred years that it nearly boggles the mind altogether.

In just the last couple of decades; so many things that scientists and researchers believed to be true have been rocked by new scientific discoveries.

An avid researcher, I myself have opted out of the search for answers to everything. There are so many latest developments that I cannot keep up with it all – and I can afford to be knocked off my path to my higher purpose – so, I defer to others whose passion it is to uncover and dig down deep for the facts revealing new discoveries.

New revelations can be an unwarranted distraction luring me to drop what I’m doing and jump in to the race for facts and data as the scientist within desires to dissect and understand the mysteries of life. When I catch myself standing on the springboard, I try to regroup, reassess and get back on track; thinking to myself, “Whew! That could have consumed the rest of my life.”

While new scientific advancements are being made every day, I’ve decided just to remain open to all the possibilities and hypotheses as they emerge, for if I’ve learned anything, I’ve found that anything – possibly everythingis possible.

Things that were so far removed from human consciousness as being possible are not only possible but are facts of our everyday life now. Things that were mere fantasy and science fiction only 150 years ago are factual reality in this moment.

This can’t help but challenge anyone’s belief system. Is what I believe true? Yes. Can truth change over time? Yes.

Is anything really possible?

Yes. Given the proper time and circumstance.

A brief example might be: Can a man fly?

The initial answer is no. Unequivocally and absolutely “No” 200 years ago, right? Wait-a-minute; what if you placed a man in a catapult and launched him like a cannonball? Wouldn’t he be flying? What about the man who leaps off a ledge into a bottomless pit? Would he not be flying? No, you say, he would be falling. Isn’t that a matter of perspective?

What if you put him in a hang-glider or on an airplane? What, if in the next 50 years, a personal flight suit is developed that when worn does make a man’s independent flight possible?

There is Isaac Newton’s renowned, “What goes up, must come down,” reference to gravity. Fact. Unless of course we begin to challenge, manipulate and use gravity’s forces to alter the outcome.

Yet, there are those who hold so tightly to the notion that a man cannot fly, that they are willing to fight for their unrivaled authoritarian view. Do they have the right to believe whatever they want? Absolutely; in that regard, you’re absolutely right, men cannot fly.

Just as you have the right to believe they cannot; I have the right to entertain the idea that they could. Fair enough?

Rather than waste my time being the skeptic – fighting and arguing over something that I may regret later – I will be the believer in all things, allowing others to sort out the details while I remain focused on my mission to help others achieve their highest and best.

Are scientific discoveries a distraction?

Take the high road: Be open.

I Am What’s Wrong With the World

I am whats wrong with the worldThe world is in disrepair, the United States is in shambles… If you don’t believe me, turn on the TV and it won’t be long, you will see that our nation and the world are sliding down a slippery slope.

How did we get into this desperate cycle of degradation? I mean, here we are on the epicenter of technological advancement; it wasn’t long ago (only several generations) that there were no toothbrushes, electricity, cars, toasters, telephones, radios, televisions, let alone computers or the Internet.

It wasn’t until the 1600’s that the printing press allowed information to be controlled, doled out to the general population and used as a means to persuade collective groups of people to embrace particular types of thought. Following the 200 years of the printing press’s dominion, the propaganda strings became stronger and swifter with the introduction of better methods of communication, like the telephone, radio and television; let alone more recent technologies including the personal computer and the Internet, leading to present-day communication technologies.

And still, with all this technology that we currently hold in our hands, the world remains in a state of decline?

Things will go on as they are as long as the majority of our populace is made up of puppets manipulated by puppeteers; the one’s that consume and those who control the media.

Oh, sure, we hear rumors of people willing to “make a stand.” Only to find their efforts are fruitless, as they are silenced. The boisterous rebels willing to publicly draw a line in the sand and attempt to influence the masses, whose messages fade away as they disappear, are murdered or die of natural causes.

The only way to change the world is one person at a time, from the inside out, and it starts, here and now with me. I am the problem. I am what stands between the world as it is today and the brighter future for tomorrow.

What can I do to change who I am?

I can turn off the TV. I can reject fear and find ways to love more deeply and passionately, embrace my personal power and a more intimate connection to the source of all that is and ever will be. I can conduct my affairs with integrity, have compassion for all peoples of all nations; including those within the boundaries of the nation where I reside who see things differently than me.

My power of influence will be focused on myself and who I am; not in an effort to convert or persuade anyone to accept my unique and individual point of view on these or any other matters. I will gently and humbly share my ideas, only when prompted; and when questioned I will respect the perspective of my audience, only disseminating that which the hearer may hear in a manner that will have the best likelihood of being understood.

I will allow everyone to go it alone, to find their own way at their own pace and celebrate their right to do so because, after all, aren’t we all just doing the best we can with what we have? I know I am.

And as I focus on me and who I am, there is the possibility that someone, somewhere else is turning their attention inward in a similar manner. I believe that as the number of these empowered individuals becomes more enlightened, as their consciousness is raised, it will clear the airspace for other individuals to begin to think for themselves.

This continued individual growth of consciousness grows exponentially as the number of enlightened increases forming a collective consciousness. Once national consciousness is raised to critical mass, then we will see change; not until then.

One man cannot conduct a battle against the world, but I can fight the battle for who I am. This I can do, for this is who I am.

Consider opening your heart to who you are to be a part of this change.
