Freedom of choice/necessary to prevent us from acting/reacting like robots

.

Your mind is like a fertile field that is prepared to grow concepts, ideas and opinions until they are mature enough to gain a life of their own. If we are lied to and we believe what we are told the seeds of these lies will sprout and grow in the fertile soil of our minds. A single lie can grow like a tree and ultimately spread millions of seeds of deceit that will not only contaminate our own lives, but the lives of everyone that come in contact with us. A single lie believed and acted on can thus continue to cause pain and disaster decades after it germinated in your head.

Knowledge captured and believed becomes like a structure in our minds that we use like a filter system to validate everything that we are exposed to daily. This filter system will accept and act on things that match our belief system and will react or reject anything that fail to match what we deem as truth. Most of the knowledge that we currently use in this filter device in our heads is defective and based on lies and half truths. You often have no idea of the source of the “truths” that you currently use. The original defective seed may have been planted in one of your ancestor’s heads many, many decades ago. Lies told to your great, great grandparents may be some of the false seeds that your own father or mothers planted in the fertile soil of your mind when you were still a child.

We all have a voice in our heads that talk persistently. Some of us call this voice that we hear thought, but if you listen carefully will discover that it sounds like a voice of someone that resides in our minds. This voice continually judges everything and everyone that we are exposed to. It tell us what is right and what is unacceptable, what is good and what is bad and what it think is to our advantage or disadvantage. This mystical voice can be compared to a commentator crossed with a critic. It gets up with us when we open our eyes in the morning and will sometimes babble on while we attempt to get a good night sleep at the end of a taxing day. This commentator/critic appeared early in our lives and continue its often toxic dialog until the last breath leave our lips when we expire. This unwelcome guest in our head knows all our stories and survives because we feed it with our faith. We for some mystical reason seem to think that it knows best under all circumstances.

You arrived on this plane with a “hard drive” that contained no data at all. You were thus uncontaminated, loving, caring and spontaneous in the initial period of your life. You arrived from a higher dimension where you enjoyed the camaraderie of the fellow souls that shared this higher dimension with you. Some call this place heaven while call it paradise. You were then exposed to a wide range of “programmers” that started uploading knowledge (data) onto your mental hard drive in your head. You soon became aware of this voice in your head that started telling you stories about yourself. This voice told you when you were a good boy or girl and when you performed according to the program. This is the same voice that you still hear today when you are faced with choices or situations.

We were created at the same time that the “Big Bang” took place. We operated in collective consciousness. Our vibrations were high and our spiritual bodies perfectly merged with the endless number of other souls that occupied this dimension where love, joy, compassion bound us together in a unified field. We did not even know about the voice in our heads that would later cause us so much serious problems and distress. We were innocent like children at this stage. We were created initially with freedom of choice. It was our freedom of choice that allowed us to develop distinct personalise. Freedom of choice was necessary to prevent us from acting and reacting like robots. Some of us started experimenting with a wide range of projects. We even tried our hand at manifesting objects by focusing on energy clusters until they vibrated at a level where they solidified. We felt like the authors and painters that crystallize the thoughts and images in their heads on paper and canvas. It was an amazing experience that unfortunately went horribly wrong. I cannot say as time slipped by because time is an illusion.

The Hidden Lives of Trees

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

.

From counting and learning to communicating and caring for each other, the secret lives of trees are wildly deep and complex.

“They can count, learn and remember; nurse sick neighbors; warn each other of danger by sending electrical signals across a fungal network known as the ‘Wood Wide Web’ – and, for reasons unknown, keep the ancient stumps of long-felled companions alive for centuries by feeding them a sugar solution through their roots.”

These are just a few of the secrets that Peter Wohlleben, a German forest ranger and best-selling author, has learned about trees.

Upon coming across a duo of soaring beeches in the forest, Wohlleben, the author of the runaway hit book The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate – Discoveries From a Secret World, observes:

“These trees are friends. You see how the thick branches point away from each other? That’s so they don’t block their buddy’s light.”

“Sometimes,” he adds, “pairs like this are so interconnected at the roots that when one tree dies, the other one dies, too.”

For someone (me) who can’t help but to anthropomorphize trees, these words ring deep and true. And Wohlleben’s work could be changing the way we think about trees. Putting the German forest back in the spotlight, notes The New York Times, Wohlleben is making the case for a popular reimagination of trees – which the modern world seems to think of as “organic robots,” designed for little more than to supply us humans with oxygen and wood.

With a mix of scientific research and his own observations – the 51-year old Wohlleben studied forestry and has worked in the forest since 1987 – the man who speaks for the trees does so in decidedly anthropomorphic terms. Which has rankled some German biologists who question his use of language to describe life in the forest.

But Wohlleben says this is exactly the point. “I use a very human language. Scientific language removes all the emotion, and people don’t understand it anymore. When I say, ‘Trees suckle their children,’ everyone knows immediately what I mean.”

And while the book remains a runaway best-seller and is kindling, so to speak, a new appreciation of trees, Wohlleben’s hands-on work with trees themselves is nothing short of an inspiration.

After years working for the state forestry administration in Rhineland-Palatinate and then as a forester managing 3,000 acres of woods near Cologne, he began to understand that contemporary practices were not serving the trees, or those who depend on them, very well.

“By artificially spacing out trees, the plantation forests that make up most of Germany’s woods ensure that trees get more sunlight and grow faster,” notes The Times. “But, naturalists say, creating too much space between trees can disconnect them from their networks, stymieing some of their inborn resilience mechanisms.”

After researching alternative approaches to forestry he began implementing some revolutionary concepts – he replaced heavy machinery with horses, stopped using insecticides and let the woods become wilder. The forest went from loss to profit in two years.

But even with the successes the responsibility to the trees became a burden and he began to see a therapist to treat burnout and depression. “I kept thinking, ‘Ah! You only have 20 years, and you still have to accomplish this, and this, and that.’” But he learned to understand that he can’t do everything … but what he could do was write a book. And now even a tree-loving writer in New York City is singing the praises of a German forester and his profound understanding of the humble and majestic neighbors who we share this planet with.

As Dr. Seuss’ tree-loving Lorax says, “I speak for the trees. I speak for the trees for the trees have no tongues.” And now trees have found another articulate spokesperson working in the German forest.

Be flexible and adaptable like a tree in a storm.

.

Nothing can change if we are not prepared to be flexible and adaptable like a tree in a storm

 

When you change your point of view or alter your perception you also alter you frame of mind. Nothing can change if we are not prepared to be flexible and adaptable like a tree in a storm. We attract new options and answers the moment we modify the anchors (perceptions) that we deem nonnegotiable. How can we grow and evolve if we are not prepared to adjust our anchor ideas when new and updated information comes to hand? Our lives become sterile and stagnant when we go around with fixed ideas. This is how you bring about dramatic change in your relationships and your life. Many of us are not prepared to make any adjustments until something happens or get modified in our outer world that we deem advantageous. Waiting for something or someone to change, give in or up can become a painful experience. You can speed up your progress many times when you make your own adjustments and stop waiting and hoping for a miracle from your outside world. Fixed mindsets are responsible for the deadly similar experiences that seem to follow you around like a stray dog.

Both meditation/hypnosis can help you take control of your life

waterflower

.

Quite often I am asked, “What’s the difference between meditation and hypnosis?” While meditation and hypnosis can be similar in terms of the process utilized to achieve a relaxed state of mind and body, they differ in terms of the outcome.

Meditation is used to quiet the mind while hypnosis is used to program the mind.

Meditation seeks to quiet the mind and helps create a blank slate where you can release all of your cares and concerns. Meditation helps you recharge and rejuvenate, and it helps you ease stress. Hypnosis does all of those things and it has an even greater purpose: To reprogram the subconscious mind.

Hypnosis is a very common state of mind

Hypnosis is a very common state of mind that you achieve every time you get lost in a thought or allow your mind to wander. You can also achieve a hypnotic-like state while driving, which is called highway hypnosis. Anyone who has ever missed an exit on the highway because their mind was lost in a thought will be familiar with this concept. Hypnosis works by helping you reprogram your self-sabotaging, self-defeating behaviors and thoughts that keep you from achieving your goals. Hypnosis is typically used to help people stop smoking or lose weight, but it can be utilized for virtually anything you want to either eliminate or improve upon.

Inner PeaceMost habits or mindsets can be overcome in as little as 21 to 30 days

Hypnosis helps you move beyond your conscious mind by helping you access the subconscious mind, which doesn’t know the difference between reality and imagination. Most thought processes and patterns can be overcome and changed, when given enough time and patience because most habits take around 21 to 30 days to overcome. Your subconscious mind is like a giant sponge that absorbs everything around it. These thoughts and images then become part of your belief system where they are sent out to the universe to become your new reality. In other words your thoughts create your reality.

Meditation offers a powerful reprieve from the world around us

Meditation on the other hand is a very powerful tool because it helps you turn your mind off and quiet your thoughts. Creativity and other kinds of processes flow much better in a relaxed state of mind. Meditation offers you a very powerful reprieve from the busy lives that we lead as well.

Perhaps at this point you’re wondering why you might choose one over another. There are some general rules of thumb you can use. If your goal is to simply relax and turn your mind off, meditation offers the perfect escape, similar to that of a mini-vacation for your mind. Hypnosis, on the other hand, is very useful if you are trying to overcome something you have been struggling with, such as smoking, weight loss or a fear.

Hypnosis and meditation use similar techniques to achieve the relaxation response

Both hypnosis and meditation use similar techniques to help you achieve a state of relaxation, but in a process like hypnosis, the hypnotist uses creative stories, metaphors and hypnotic suggestions to help you overcome your problems. Meditation, of course, is used to simply help you relax and ease off stress and tension. Most of us live in a world that is never silent; it is always moving, ebbing and flowing. We tend to use noise such as music or the radio to fill in the gaps of silence because silence somehow seems uncomfortable and unwanted. As a result, we are stressed out and feel pressure every moment of the day.

Both meditation and hypnosis can help you take control of your life

Meditation is an incredible tool that can help you in many ways. Just spending a few precious moments a day in silence while watching your breath can be a life-altering experience because it gives you time to reflect.

Hypnosis is an equally miraculous tool that will allow you to take control of those parts of your life that may appear to be beyond your control. This includes your habits and behaviors as well as the emotions, beliefs and feelings that are triggering those unwanted thoughts and actions. From quitting smoking, to losing weight, to managing situational stress, to overcoming fears, to setting goals for yourself, to improving academic and athletic performance, hypnosis can be used to improve virtually any aspect of your life.

The pass code that will open many doors for you/solve most problems

.

.

We all hit a wall in our lives where we feel everything is just against us. We hammer on the door of opportunity until our knuckles are raw, but know one invite us in. The key to overcome the waves of panic and pain is to trust that things will turn out ok like they did so many times before. Think back how you worried about a wide range of stuff at school and how most of them never materialised as horrific as expected. Let your mind glide through the scrap heap periods in your life and recall how many of the biggest disasters turned out ok in the end. Recall the wonderful lessons you learned and how certain individuals revealed to you that the path forward would be much more productive and pleasant without them. The biggest mistake we make when we are confronted by serious challenges is to allow the perceived magnitude to paralyze us. We start thinking in panic stricken circles and allow our minds to bind us in a state of non-action. There is nothing more lethal than a state of non-action blended with a brew of stinking thinking. The way out of any problem situation begins with calm and deliberate action. Relax and then kick the door of opportunity down if they fail to open it for you. You do not have a financial problem. All you have is a shortfall on current available cash. Your cash flow can be remedied if you continue taking deliberate action. You need to write those letters and make those calls while you talk to as many people you can that can assist you. Non-action is the killer of dreams. Non-action and the waiting game destroys businesses, relationships and families. Your circumstances can change and solutions can come in the blink of an eye. The pass code that will open many doors for you and solve most problems is your attitude my friend.

Look at stuff/people from many different perspectives. Nothing is as it seems.

Page-Headervvc

There is a saying that ignorance is bliss. This might be true for some, but it is as far as I am concerned the root cause of most of our suffering, pain and anxiety. Accepting life, people, religion, politics, perceptions, choices, rules and laws at face value imprisoned the mind of mankind. Looking at anything in life from a single perspective is the lazy way out. Seeing and experiencing from a limited range of perspectives have shackled man almost since its inception. Primitive man could not read, write or decipher the range of threats that confronted them and were forced to turn to priests and other individuals for guidance. This disposition provided a wonderful opportunity for those that claimed that they understood to take over control of their followers minds. The initial flimsy net that these opportunists wove gradually grew stronger and more sophisticated.

You will later see how this initial ignorance created an ideal vehicle of enslavement for those in control. Mankind have been kept in a state of ignorance since the beginning of time by greedy power hungry individuals, groups and organizations. Primitive methods of pain, pleasure and hope were used to restrain the masses. Man experienced fleeting moments of pleasure while they blindly obeyed the “commands” of these controllers. Thousands of written laws, spiritual and otherwise came into being over the years. Those that remained subdued and subservient were praised and rewarded while anyone that questioned anything faced the intricate range of pain that these controllers could bring to bear on them. They were cruelly tortured in the dark ages when they questioned anything to do with religion or the state.

Mankind became the slaves of the controllers. They were carefully manipulated to let go of a fair percentage of their hard earned income. The state took their pound of flesh while the religious leaders demanded at least ten percent of all income earned as well. The system sucked in mankind to such an extent that only a handful of individuals over the years showed the courage to point out the deadly trap that we find ourselves in up to today. Do you grasp that the slaves of this system not only police the deadly system on behalf of the controllers, but breed their future slaves when they produce children? I can write a fairly substantial book on this subject matter, but believe that you can see what I am addressing in this document.

My plea is that everyone make it his or her business to get rid of the veil of ignorance that is responsible for most of their anxiety, pain and lack. You might have noticed that I post a very wide range of perceptions daily on an endless range of subjects. My motivation is that I want you to look at stuff from many different perspectives. Nothing is as it seems. I will continue to write on the endless range of methods used to keep us ignorant if I get a fairly acceptable responds on this post.
