Society. The trap we all fall into. Ever since we are born, we are molded into whatever our parents, teachers, therefore- society wants us to be. No wonder why we cry soon as we leave the womb.
So you have probably heard something about the rising of consciousness, holistic way of life starting to gain momentum across the world challenging the status quo. You are probably wondering if those scrawny wacked drug abusing hippies were right all along.
Yeah, they were. But not entirely. You see, their message of love and peace was in fact a formidable one, and a correct one. We all need love and peace in this world as soon as possible.
They’ve gone too far though. All love, sex and drugs is wonderful, don’t get me wrong, but they did pretty much nothing about it. Why?
Well, they pretty much did nothing about themselves. Not all of them though. There were still intellectuals that understood the way it all worked.
You see, you won’t change anything outside if you don’t change yourself inside. It’s very easy, really, when you look at it. The more you change, the more your perception of the world does, therefore your experience also. I know you are probably thinking : “But how do I change?”
Well, for that you don’t have to be spiritual or zen or whatever and that is precisely my point. If you understand spirituality even better, but I think that we all have the capability of changing ourselves for the better and unleashing our enormous potential.
You have to see and understand your brain for what it is. How it functions, how is it connected to your body, and the world around you. You need to know how to rewire it.
Yes, you can rewire it. It’s not going to be easy though. Your old bad habits and patterns have to be eliminated. Yes, I mean eliminated. Everything you know deep inside of you that is a bad habit, but you don’t want to change it, has to go. Such as : sitting on couch all day and watching TV, overthinking every situation and so on. We all have our own types of bad habits we have developed during our childhood and even our adult life.
There is a reason for all of this and it’s called subconscious mind. Subconscious mind is storing every single thread of data we encounter during our lives. Every single memory, feeling, it’s all stored somewhere deep inside the subconscious mind.
I know many people think it’s too hard for them to change, or just move their asses to better themselves, but it’s only their brain that doesn’t want change. It does what it thinks it’s the best for you, given all the time you spent in your life doing the same things over and over again. Your brain is hardwired for you to survive, and to be comfortable. It will not accept easy the paradigm shift you bestow upon it. It will fight, making you doubt yourself, making you doubt what you are doing, making you not do anything. You see, the reason why a lot of people can’t start changing in a positive way is because they don’t understand their brain. They think it’s them who are calling the shots, when in fact, it’s not. They are only along for the ride, when their brain is in the driving seat. It seems strange enough, but it’s the point of life really. The whole reason we think we are who we are is our brain and it’s perception of reality that was forged by our experiences in life.
You can change your habits and your previously learned behavior by programming your subconscious mind. I am not going to give you exactly how to do that (you can check that online) but I just want to tell you that you just have to start. Bit by bit, habit by habit, and there you are, leading a whole new life.
Remember, you will not struggle or find it hard once you make a habit out of it. If you want to better yourself, you must change your “destructive” habits and start constructive ones instead. You can even try meditating, do some reading, or whatever you find constructive.
You just have to realise the way your brain works, the way it stores information and controls your behavior and then you will have the power to take control of your life.
