June 30 on belief systems
Tonight I would like to discuss and explore more specifically what actually is a belief system, which are so strongly influencing our daily Life. ..
Yet, whatever we think about, we bring about.
Our Inner Dialogue about us and the world we interact is representing our beliefs like
Am I worthy, can I do this, this is really hard. And so on.
The 2nd question I would like to discuss is where do these thoughts come from??
In the last episode we learned how QP has proven that we as an observer indeed create the reality around us…and our hidden core belief shape the quality of Life.
And I would like to look at this idea of creating our reality based on some thoughts of Peter Russell studied mathematics and theoretical physics.
You can find more information about him and all others I am quoting in this episode on my blog justbeittalk.wordpress.com
It is certainly worthwhile to look closer at the workings of theses beliefs, as no matter
No matter how hard yu work, how many hours you work, how perfect and clever you do it, you will never outperform your limiting underlying beliefs which run in the background. They!! Are attracting our reality, not our doing ness. The way we are!! Being makes things happen.
Our deep values and hidden core beliefs shape who we are in our Being ness…ant it is the right being ness, the right attitude which attracts the quality of our Life. This was also said by Meister Eckhart in different words already 700 years ago.
Meister Eckhart ,Christian Mystics. In the 14th century in Germany, in his sermons
as a Dominican scholar he said
QUOTE: People should not worry as much about what they do but rather about what they are. If they and their ways are good, then their deeds are radiant. If you are righteous, then what you do will also be righteous. We should not think that holiness is based on what we do but rather on what we are, for it is not our works which sanctify us but we who sanctify our works. Meister Eckhardt
Changing our beliefs is changing our beingness.
You must change these beliefs change the way you are: as you will never be able no matter how hard yu work, how many hours you work, how perfect you do it, you will never outperform your limiting underlying beliefs which run in the background.
Changing our beliefs is e changing our beingness.
Whatever we think about, we bring about. Inner Dialogue
Peter Russell M.A., D.C.S., F.S.P. Peter Russell is a fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, of the deeper, spiritual significance of the times we are passing through. He has written several books in this area — The TM Technique, The Upanishads, The Brain Book, The Global Brain Awakens, The Creative Manager, The Consciousness Revolution, Waking Up in Time, and From Science to God.
There are, therefore, two realities. There is the physical reality–whatever is actually “out there” stimulating our senses–and there is the personal reality that we each experience, the reconstruction of the world that appears in our minds. And both are very real.
Some people claim that this is an illusion. Although it may all be a creation of the mind, but it is nonetheless very, very real–the only reality we ever know.
The illusion comes when we confuse the reality we experience with the physical reality, the thing-in-itself. Andin the old ancient Vedic scripts from India they spoke of this
Maya, better interpreted as delusion (a false belief about the world). I suffer a delusion when I believe the images in my mind are the external world. I deceive myself when I think that the tree I see is the tree itself. However Matter is not made of matter as our mind wants to tell us. We learned of Quantum physics, that it is rather a field of possibilities, electrons zooming around in a soup of energies, of waves of energies.
When I kick a stone, my intention to move my foot is communicated to my body, and my foot in the physical world moves to meet the physical stone. But I do not experience the interaction directly. The brain receives the information sent back by the eyes and body and updates my image of reality appropriately. Our brain filters the so called reality; we can never experience the soup of electrons directly. Our senses are also limited to perceive the so called reality of waves of energies directly.
For example our eyes, for example, are sensitive only to light in the narrow frequency range from 430,000 to 750,000 gigahertz (a gigahertz is a billion cycles per second). At lower frequencies is infrared (below red) radiation, and lower still are microwaves and radio waves. At higher frequencies we find ultraviolet (above violet) rays, and beyond them X-rays and gamma-rays. Our eyes detect none of these other frequencies.
This is just one tiny example how our senses and our brain give us an image of reality, but never the direct experience of the energized field of possibility around us,which is not matter.
It is for us ordinary people impossible to have a perception of the world around us as it is.
Our senses and our brain (which is conditioned by our belief system) will give us a very limited and distorted view of what we experience. But this does not mean it is entirely impossible to see things differently. Spiritual seekers from ancient and modern cultures
They have been able to change that limiting perceptions…by looking within. By investigating the Beingness, the Inner Being…What they have found out…is that the world is actually inside of us. Swami Muktananda, another contemporary sage, said:
You are the entire universe.
You are in all, and all is in you.
Sun, moon, and stars revolve within you.
And the Ashtavakra Gita, a highly venerated Indian text, states:
The Universe produced phenomenally in me, is pervaded by me…
From me the world is born, in me it exists, in me it dissolves.
These enlightened seekers knew and understood in a direct personal experience that their entire world is a manifestation within the mind.
So this perspective has been proven later by brain research, Quantum physics.
We are creating our own reality. And our core beliefs play an important part in this creation.
John Assaraf calls these implicit beliefs, hidden core beliefs that run in the background, like a software tuning computer, mostly we are not aware of them.
Where do our beliefs come from?
How are they shaping our reality?
Unfortunately they are based on our conditioning, the upbringing thru our families and the environment we lived in, and that came from their upbringing and reach back into patterns of our ancestors…they formed genetic patters, which were not only passed along by our upbringing but literally being passed down thru blood lines.
For example, Germany..Angst, anxiety, but also so called positive beliefs of hard work ethics perfectionism based on a deep insecurity and the fear of disaster and of uncertainties…
Many wars not just the 2nd world war, but the first world war, the deploying of millions of people in middle Europe, the 30 year old war in the 15/16th centuries…great uncertainties, rebuilding with hard work and discipline, accompanies by a sense of powerless and anxiety-
Let’s have a brief look at mass consciousness
When we leave in cities especially our senses and brain is affected by constant stream of though pattern of fear, disaster, manipulation, and our belief systems consists of all our thoughts and emotions with different vibration frequencies which are coming from all directions. The mass consciousness is a close jungle of low frequencies, encroaching us, limiting us full of anxieties around security shelter, acceptance, and comparison of being good and bad.
As most of us are not aware of their underlying thought patterns nor are we consciously and active going against the bombardment of these mass consciousness, we are getting molded by them. Our brain is not the creator of these thoughts, but rather a highly sensitive receiver…of these electrical charges of thought patterns around it. Each part of the brain can receive, save and amplify these thought frequencies.
The task of the brain is to receive the stream of consciousness floating around us, to transform it into electrical nerve reactions which are passed via our central nervous system into each cell of our body. And we have learned in our passed episode that each cell becomes addictive to repetitive thoughts and emotions which create our beingness. We are what we think, and what we think is our Life.
Now the brain does conceive these highly magnetic thought frequencies out of the stream of consciousness around us. Based on its own structure…meaning based on its upbringing and neuron nets created in its family and environment. The neurological patterns set in our brain are belief systems which attract the thoughts fitting these beliefs.
Another good example is the core belief of working hard:
In society many of us got teached, we need to work hard for money, and our parents with their upbringing have teached us the same…One of the strongest lessons we receive from our parents and from society is if you are not doing, if you are not working hard, you are not worthwhile. How many of us are afraid of idle, quiet time when nothing is to be done?
How many of us had parents who teached us that it’s good to be instead of doing all the time.
Working hard many hours needs to fill often the addiction for attention and acceptance..coming from an inner unworthiness. If we would believe in our true nature, with unique and unbounded abilities, with the ability to express our own individual talents and dream our world, we would have to have a matching belief: that we are special, that we are unique, that we are God children and worthy simply because we exist not because we work many hours and work hard.
Simply because of whom we are Being, not of what we are doing.
But busyness, doingness has become a major factor in our Life.
Not beeing productive inside the demands of society, is seen as bad, as failure…and one feels immediate fallen outside of society, when he/she decides to become an artist a poet or a musician……
Unworthiness is a widely spread thought patters for many of us.
Children watching…saying their names. and I watched normal bright 3 year old having difficulty to clearly say their name to speak up in front of other children. …not just the parents but around us is a stream of consciousness who keeps us small and indaedquate.our society is based on not making mistake..be good adjust yourself function,
The grading system in the school institution is based on grading mis-takes, they are
punished by grades and many more subtle messages..Perform inside the demands of the system otherwise you fail, you are not worthy. Our whole society is based on the belief that you are not allowed to fail, to make a mis-take, it is punished with non-accpetance.
And I have seen the better way in alternative school system as a language consultant.
In the reform school movement of Montessori school each child no matter how old presents the result of its self organized learning lesion they had. They stand in front of a mixed age class of fellow students and proudly present their results. What does that do for a child and its self esteem? These children clearly had a strong identity of self and there was no fear or shaming when they spoke about themselves.
Religious institution have done their part to mold the believe of our inadequacies as humans
As sinners …passed along in generations before us.
So we are exposed to a stream of mass consciousness which fails to invoke in our children and in us as adults of our potential, our talents our uniqueness, our true nature as a powerful consciousness identical with the Absolute consciousness the God like nature that we are.
So no matter how much we are doing and working hard to become rich, if for most of us there is a deep sense of unworthiness, of not being ok, just because we are…we will not make it to be wealthy. Money is energy expressed in coins and bills…and our thoughts and beliefs are magnetic frequencies who must meet that energy.
We must have the matching belief to our goal, our whole beingness needs to align .doingness alone is not effective.
Money will be given to us, if we belief we deserve it.
The same with relationships, happiness and health.
The universe can only give us what we believe we can handle
So if you think you cannot handle it (like lots of money) it will not be part of our reality.
We also learn that money is the root of all evil, and many of us are afraid what people would think if we would be rich or we re afraid of the response ability wealth brings…
Yet then we see that there are so called bad people who have lots of money How come?
Don’t I have to be a good person to be rich (that is one of my core beliefs I need to work with)
Yet Beliefs are very distinct. Again: It is the belief which matches the goal.
As long as the belief is there in society and in themselves that they deserve it, even if they ac badly they will still get it.
These bad people really believe they deserve to be rich no matter what happens. And they also do not mind to be seen as greedy …we often do.
Everything in the universe is energy; matter is crystallized energy, like ice and water. There are different forms, but it’s all the same energy. Our thoughts are highly vibrating magnetic energies attracting other energies.
So all is based on vibration, on frequency specific vibration. When we change our vibrational thought patterns – our beliefs – into higher frequencies we will manifest high frequencies around us in form of wealth, happiness. Things run more smoothly not hard, slow and difficult like lower frequencies.
So we must awaken to our potential and clearly define new positive thoughts and mold them into our brain and body. We can start with a simply but very powerful thought that of gratitude.
My fist spiritual teacher always said count your blessing, too often I kept looking at what was not working instead of what was working.(which is a bit a disease in the German culture)
Smiling…so counting my blessings, being grateful of what is already in my Life, and who I am in my potentials makes a big difference.
So often I take the generosity of the universe for granted. No man is an island and realizing that all my gifts and blessings are based on the deep connection with humanity and Mother nature around me is worthwile. It attracts more of the same I am grateful for.
Another positive thought we can form a strong hard wire in our brain receiver is that of Love and service to others…helping others is the most powerful act to move into self love and self respect. It is an act which connects us to our spiritual nature, as we are moving beyond the limiting anxious ego self into something greater in the relationship with the other we serve.
The simple gift of Love and Kindness can change us forever into a new beingness and dissolve core beliefs of uncertainty and unworthiness. In our busyness we are often cowardly when it comes to spread kindness and joy.
Yet there is no quick fix. The quick fix is part of the unhealthy belief system of mass mind.
Changes take time and we need to be gentle with ourselves when we move ahead, adjusting our course to our own uniqueness. I have found for myself that it’s no mind t just an intellectual process not enough to work with the brain …our hole being, including the body mind spirit unit of me must be included. What food am I eating, do I exercise, and do I have enough sleep
Do I take timeout in nature?
And I have found pathways into the energetic patterns of my body through tapping work.
Solo each of us must find their own unique ways to dissolve outdated core beliefs, to take charge of ones own thinking and become all that we can be.
Again as said in the last episode to dissolve one negative core belief, it would be best to create a pattern of 3 positive thoughts and ACT upon them. So it’s important not just to do affirmations or writing a positive thought down but we must BE IT by acting it.
By becoming Love and Gratitude we change our Beingness, and dissolve old outdated beliefs.
Expect the highest, the most wonderful things to happen right now. And realize that nothing is too good.
Thank you for listening and I will be back next Saturday with another episode of Just Be it.
