There is no reality, only perception. I’ve heard it said that if you want to change your life then you have to change the way you perceive life. For example, if ten of us are eyewitnesses to an automobile accident and we are asked to recall the details, there would be ten slightly different versions of what happened. What we “see” depends on what filters we have operating in our lives.
Consider a time in history before Christopher Columbus discovered America. The world was thought to be flat. It was believed that travel was a dangerous thing. If one ventured too far one would drop off the edge of the world. Columbus discovered the world was not flat, but round. A paradigm shift occurred. The world did not change, perception did. Change perception and everything else changes too.
When a paradigm shift occurs our thinking is expanded and thoughts are included that we once believed were impossible or didn’t exist. Our horizons are expanded.
Assuming the above is true I would like to venture forth a premise: “The limitations we experience in life are of our own making.” What if the world of the “inner self” holds the potential to nurture, to delight, to create, to be compassionate and loving, to reveal truth, to give you all the blessings life has to offer? What if the only thing which holds us back is our own thinking and perceptions? Powerful thought…huh? This paradigm shift won’t allow us to be a victim but will demand that we take charge of our lives! Change your perceptions and you can change your life!
Human power lies in the capacity to choose. Unfortunately, the cultures we grow up in, by and large, do not teach us how to make true life affirming choices. Instead we are taught not to “rock the boat” and to follow the status quo. We are trained to follow the rules. As we grow up and buy into these ways of thinking, then more and more, of what constitutes the true essence, of who and what we are, gets erased.
Everyday I see more and more people who are getting erased because they are buying into the idea that other people, people in “authority” know better, about how they should think and live. You see, when we fail to make life affirming choices we actually give our power away to others!
Take back your power! Stop depending on someone else’s so-called intelligence and follow your own inner wisdom! Trust your own ability to navigate life, based on your own inner truth!
We are not helpless as so many of us believe. We are strong spiritual beings with the power to choose our own destinies! We are people of dignity, power and courage, but only if we choose to be.
You have a choice so please make the CHOICE!!.
Management Concepts in a Bank Robbery!
There was this robbery in Guangzhou , the robber shouted to everyone: “All don’t move, money belongs to the state, life belongs to you.” Everyone in the bank laid down quietly.
This is called “Mind Changing Concept, Changing the conventional way of thinking”.
One lady lay on the table provocatively, the robber shouted at her “Please be civilized! This is a robbery and not a rape!”
This is called “Being Professional”. Focus only on what you are trained to do!”
When the robbers got back, the younger robber (MBA trained) told the older robber (who is only primary school educated), “Big bro, let’s count how much we got”, the older robber rebutted and said, “You very stupid, so much money, how to count, tonight TV will tell us how much we robbed from the bank!”
This is called “Experience” nowadays experience is more important than paper qualifications!”
After the robbers left, the bank manager told the bank supervisor to call the police quickly. The supervisor says “Wait, wait wait, let’s put the 5 million RMB we embezzled into the amount the robbers robbed”.
This is called “Swim with the tide” converting an unfavorable situation to your advantage!”
The supervisor says “It will be good if there is a robbery every month”. This is called “Killing Boredom” Happiness is most important.”
The next day, TV news reported that 100 million RMB was taken from the bank. The robbers counted and counted and counted, but they could only count 20 million RMB. The robbers were very angry and complained “We risked our lives and only took 20 million RMB, the bank manager took 80 million RMB with a snap of his fingers. It looks like it is better to be educated to be a thief!”
This is called “Knowledge is worth as much as gold!”
The bank manager was smiling and happy because his loss in the CINOPEEC shares are now covered by this robbery.
This is called “Seizing the opportunity” daring to take risks!”
