June 30 on belief systems

Excerpts from my shownotes

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.




May 12 shownotes materialistic science and consiousness

Excerpts of shownotes

from the JUST BE IT blog talk radio show

at consciousness unlimited blog talk radio

Hello, welcome to my show JUST BE IT on consciousness unlimited blog talk radio.

Today’s episode I want to look at the materialistic science as the primary rule to explain our world. We will also explore the sentence I am God and our individual Self, the pure consciousness we are.

90 years ago a Swiss man spoke about  the following:

“We have the tendency to explain things by its physicality

We overrate the material causes of things and think now we have an real explanations of matter. Which seems much easily known then the intangible ways of metaphysical spiritual way of the world around and in us. “

This was said by the father of modern psychology, the Swiss psychologist C.G. Jung, in his writings around 1930.

We will hear from the scientist Peter Russell and from the mystical poet Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi.. I invite you to share your thoughts on this by email please write to me! with your comments and experiences to justbeit13@googlemail.com.


And we looked at that we must face the shadow, the forces behind this resistance to really make a change. Facing these parts of our own does not mean to MAKE  them go away but to acknowledge them to integrate them into our inner world.

In each episode of my show I give a practice you could integrate in your Life and also last time I  suggested  to look at where you have the greatest opposition, and look what this resistance in your Life is trying to tell you…what are your thoughts and feelings about that opposition,  and  the project itself. And how does it sound familiar to something you belief, decided upon, experienced in the past. ? How did that go? Maybe having resistance doing that?

Well I noticed that the shadow is tricky and tries to hide itself and it takes a while to unravel it

however if you do this more often you will come to an inner map of voices and energies which are pretty much repeating themselves, sometimes they wear a different mask but nevertheless it’s the same energy. For me it is often that I need to check in if all of me  is really aligned with what I am doing,.meaning do I really want to do this?, do I have a vision I can identify with?

or am I just going through the motion..functioning. Sometimes it simply helps to check your Why ? Why and what for are you doing this…This will awake other energies in you, energies which can  carry the vision of what you want to accomplish what you stand for in Life .What is the desired outcome of this task in a bigger broader picture. what difference will it  make…I find this energizing and inspiring and it can carry me beyond the resistance .


Greece 2000 years ago everything was revolving around the earth.

As a Greek citizen you lived in the center of the universe in Greece you , were important!

only 400 years ago in 1616 Galileo was arrested when he said, that the earth evolved around the sun.

and it was only about 100 years ago whenscience told us there are no other galaxies besides us.

Now you are just a small biological speck on a small planet, on the border of the solar system Milky way surrounded by hundred billions of galaxies, science is telling us.

About 60 years ago in 1952 the DNA was discovered and genetically engineering seems to bring science in a creator like state. The materialistic approach of our  Science today has no need of god.

Actually we live in such a a material way of our world that there is a a complete disinterest in God and spiritualism.

Just a couple of hundred years ago there was no difference between science and spirituality. It was intertwined as a study of Knowledge in the monasteries in Europe, the knowledgeable person in that time explored astrology, medicine, herbs and alchemy and religious subjects the same.

 Sir Isaac Newton, born in 1642 was a English physicist and was considered  the most influential scientist.. He described d universal gravitation and the three laws of motion, which dominated the scientific view of the physical universe for the next 300 years..

Yet what is most interesting is that Isaac Newton spend far! more time studying alchemy and religious subjects then science. He wrote about half a million of commentary on mystic passages in the bible and he wrote much more about alchemy, and astrology

The scientific  dogma today is that only that which can be measured is real, all exists in space, time and matter. Nothing exists but the physical world  superdogma

Peter Russell says: Science belief if they fully understand what exists in space,time and matter we will be able to account for the whole cosmos. Peter Russell calls this the present super dogma of our society.

Peter Russel  studied ath University of Cambridge he studied mathematics and theoretical physics. He studied with Stephen Hawkings, Yet he became increasingly frustrated as a scientist and turned to easter philosophy. In an ashram of a Indian Guru he  had a Samadhi experience of pure consciousness. Samadhi meaning no mind.

I quote Peter Russell:

Nothing in the physical sciences predicts the phenomenon of consciousness. Yet its reality is apparent to each and every one of us. END OF QUOTE

 Peter Russell says , we need to accept that consciousness is as fundamental as matter—in some ways, more fundamental.

…..From a poem of  the well known mystical poet Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi lived  in what is now Turkey in th 12th century. He was the founder of the Whirling Dervishes order and a highly respected teacher by Christian, Muslims and Hindus alike. When he had passed in 1273 there was a funeral celebration of 40 days with many people attended from all religions in that time.

I am always impressed how fresh And modern his views are and how precise his language is about the Inner realm.

Two kinds of intelligence

From Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi

From the book Rumi, The Essential Rumi by Coleman Barks

 There are two kinds of intelligence: one acquired
As a child in school memorizes facts and concepts
From books and from what the teacher says,
Collecting information from the traditional sciences
As well as from the new sciences 

With such intelligence you rise in the world
You get ranked ahead or behind others
In regard to your competence in retaining
information. You stroll with this intelligence
In and out of fields of knowledge,
getting always more
Marks on your preserving tablets 

There is another kind of tablet, one
Already completed and preserved inside you.
A spring overflowing its springbox. A freshness
in the center of the chest. The other intelligence
Does not turn yellow or stagnate. It’s fluid,
And it doesn’t move from outside to inside
through the conduits of plumbing-learning.

 The second knowing is a fountainhead
From within you, you moving out.


So there is an Intelligence in us which is much more complete, much more vast than any science can be. It’s knowledge encompasses All That Is, as it is identical with All That is. When we connect with this, we know ALL and its source is never ending. We are in the Knowing.

Yet today,  many live in a world that is without the light of spiritual guidance, in darkness.

God as a fatherly figure has disappeared in our society for most of us. Many people us are left disorientated, feeling disconnected and confused.

The answers lies in our self, here in the Inner Being, the Greater Intelligence

We can find not only answers for ourselves but for the acute questions science cannot answer: The meaning of Life, how to Love and Live as a God Created being, where do we come from .and what is this all about?

The times are over where we need to read or hear about it, we must experience it each for ourselves…our true nature. As Grandmother Pa’Ris_Ha says We are spirits who learn to be human. The answers are within.

Today we are coming to a threshold, materialistic science has got a grip on the explanations of the world…however our challenges demand that we include Spirituality, consciousness. We shall use science  with a spiritual maturity. Only then can we move forward out of the darkness we are in now.

That reminds me on the story : where the Angels had created our world and they did not know where to hide god in the world, so that it would be protected and respected and not too obvious. They put the spark of God inside human that is where we can find it.

But not only there. Also in the nature and all our relations around us.

Is this true science when they developed crop engineering?

With crop engineering materialistic based science believes that

there is nothing more to a plant , than size, chemistry, colour..but we know (and even science has proved that) that plants can feel and anticipate. There is indeed an unseen life force working in and around them. How much damage does this life force receive, by manipulating the DNA of the plant?…and which effects does this have on our  life force when we eat genetically engineered tomatoes ?

Materialistic science seems to me often crude and far to simplistic causing not only disturbance in the plant world but also in the healing abilities in our body.

Anyone who truly takes responsibilities for his own healing, knows that medicine works only on the symptoms as these are measurable and in a materialistic view

Can be manipulated. But what about the new healing fields of energetic and information input based on frequencies? Homeopathic medicine for example is  an energetic information code transported into the energetic level of our cells to ignite the healing process.

That seems to me a much more sophisticated and intelligent  approach  and experience has shown and been proven by research it works..

Peter Russell suggests as said before:, we need to accept that consciousness is as fundamental as matter—in some ways, more fundamental. END OF QUOTE

Our individual consciousness is again like a drop of water in the oceanic vastness of the Absolute consciousness, the Brahman. Our individual Higher Self is identical with this consciousness. It is like the drop of water  part of the vast ocean.

There is another important characteristics of our time besides the paradigma of materialistic science influencing our world.

I am talking about the individual religious experience.

C.G. Jung wrote that he always found that all the people who came to him, who were in the middle of their Life (around 35 years of age) had one basic problem: their religious view. The final cause of illnesses was for them the questions about God, their non existing relationshipp to the Divine, and by that Jung they needed to become a member of a church or a religious order.

This question is a very personal today. Rudolf Steiner the founder of the Anthroposophie had said that this epoche is the time were we need to answer the question for ourselves, as an individual.

This is different from the past where we relied on groups, religious leaders, institutions.

In the past a spiritual seeker would renounce from  the world, give up their family, go to the monastery in Europe, In India become a Sannyashin, in Tibet or China he might move to the mountains living as a hermit

Nowadays we need mystics and spiritual enlightened people which are in the world

The monasteries and mountains are our cities.

When we truly have the experience of Samadhi,  of pure consciousness we feel we are God. Meister Eckhart has been send to the inquisition of the pope, when he announced “God and I are One”. People have been killed and austerized for postulating in exhilaration and and ecstasy: I am God.

This statement as Peter Russell put its: is a smack of arrogance for many, especially if the “I” implies the individual human being God.

To a more religious person it sounds blasphemous and as said before people got killed for this.

A journey of consistent practice to still the discriminating mind, to move beyond distinctions.

Be still and know that I am God” says the bible. Many years ago, I meditated

on that sentence. I came to the realization that this sentence came from my Higher Self, the voice inside of me.

When we replace  the word God with consciousness, the Absolute consciousness then we could say I am consciousness, I am identical with the Absolute…

As Grandmother Pa’Ris’Ha says” Of my self Iam nothing, of You I am everything.”


Today I would like to suggest as a practice to be with the sentence. slow

Be still and know that I am God. You could play some relaxing music and sit with it, speaking quietly each word slowly,  embracing it, taking in it and see what it can do for you. Let me know at justbeit13@googlemail.com.

And remember always love your self.
