Technology and culture are deeply interrelated. If technology change social culture will change. Just how the industrial revolution turned people into a industrial human beings with different values and mass pursuers. The same thing will happen today. It’s not a new age, but time repeating itself.
However, the rapid change in technology that we’re dealing with today is going to cause a strong confusion. what philosophers call it “a future shock “. Undoubtedly people will adapt to advanced technology yet not everybody will “get it”. The majority of people will be confused which will lead to mental illness.
How to survive in a future shock?
“Learn to unlearn, relearn and learn” I have not better advice to give you. Laterally this’s the key to future survival. We’re all adaptable beings but not everyone is flexible; I’m talking about mental flexibility. If you lack this quality then it’s time to develop it and you can do so by constantly doing new things, exposing yourself to new ideas and not being attached to any fixed form or title.
The theory of paralle universes is also called omniverse, is a hypothetical group of multiple universes including the universe in which we live. Together,these universes comprise everything that exists. To clarify, the universe consist of multiple parallel realities, each reality hold a possibility. Your present choice is what determin your reality, you change you destiny by just choosing. As i said in a previous blog; Destiny is made up of two parts. A part that is under your control and a part that’s controlled by God the creator .
Lets take an example, imagine Tom walking down the street and happen to see an ice cream shop. The fact that Tom reached such destination is a blessing from God. However, Tom’s role is to choose whether to take this opportunity or not. Until Tom make up his mind, there exist countless possibilities. Like him buying an ice cream, him not buying an ice, him buying a shake instead, him only using the bathroom or walking away from the ice cream shop…etc. Each of Tom’s possibilities is represented in a future parallel reality. Once Tom make up his mind, he will experience the chosen reality.
What’s crucial to understand is that if Tom have choosen not to eat an ice cream someone else will eat his ice cream. His opportunity will become someone else’s reality, if he didn’t choose it. This applies on everything in life. If you don’t accept the money, the money will go to someone else. If you don’t eat the food, it will get eaten by someone else and so on. This’s the law of life, to every giver there’s a receiver. You have multiple possibilities, but only one opportunity. So it’s either you choose to give and there will be a receiver or you take in place of those who gave away their opportunity. Another way to think about it is to every present there’s the absence of it.
THINK THINK THINK .. I’m sure you have heard this advice before, perhaps your parents told you to think every time you got stuck in a problem. The society link thinking with intelligence and engraved the idea that “ the more you think the smarter you are“. which is nothing but a myth. What if I told you that thinking is actually stupidity. A certain degree of thinking is healthy but if crossed it become overthinking and distract you from the reality, as if you’ve jumped into a dream world of your thoughts. The disadvantage is that you become limited by the bubble of thoughts. kind of like mentally moving in a circle, You fail to think out of the box.
Is the thinking the only function of the brain?
No, the brain is not made only to THINK. indeed thinking is not suppose to be done all day long. In situations where thinking it’s require, thinking must be put to use. Other times it’s best to stop thinking. When you don’t think you finally shift into the NOW. you become fully present at the moment. This shift in focus open the door to creativity. Thus you find your greatest ideas in the shower or while taking a walking etc. Physical activities help rest the mind and turn your focus outward (from the mind into the body), so you don’t think. Instead you feel every inch of yourself and the world around you in action. In other words, you Bec one ALIVE. Albert Einstein once said _“I think 99 times and find nothing. I stop thinking, swim in silence, and the truth comes to me”
NO THINKING = FULL CONSCIOUSNESS
I can’t strop thinking!! and I don’t know what to do when I’m not thinking?
it’s impossible to know the state of consciousness when you are thinking about it. You should just experience it then you will discover the mystery. Certainly you will find it difficult at first. What I usually do to easily shift my focus, is concentrating on something outside of me. like my breathing , sound, the silence in-between the sound, the environment or even on one of my organs. Once I’m successfully present in the now. I simply reflect (observing the surrounding) or imagine ( use my creative imagination). Conscious is like a muscle , it needs practice in order to master it. So try to shift your focus regularly during the day. Catch yourself if possible when you’re unconscious and turn yourself into a conscious state of being. With time you will find yourself more conscious than you were before.
INTUITION is that hunting feeling that comes out of no where. It’s an energy sent from the divine that hits your heart. Thus it can’t be proven outside of yourself. While most people freak out from this gift, I would tell you it’s NOTHING BUT GOOD. Don’t deny it! because it’s real. Nikola Tesla once said “My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists.”.. This is immaculately true. All knowledge is the knowledge of God. We’re constantly guided by superior intelligence. Sometimes in the form of sudden thoughts or ideas, others in the form of a feeling in the heart. Usually Intuition serve as a warning or a buzz for attention.
According to neuroscience not everyone is intuitive, due to their dominant side of the brain. A person who is “left-brained” is said to be more logical. while a “right-brained” is more intuitive, thoughtful, and subjective. Obviously you’re not missing one of your brain hemispheres; it’s just that one side of your brain is more active or ruling. While the other is lazy. In spite of this both sides of your brain are always at work and communicate with one another via Corpus Callosum. Which doesn’t diminish the fact that “left-brained” people can receive an intuitive feeling, Yet they resist it due to disbelief in it’s accuracy.
So back to the main question of this blog, Should you follow your intuition? Absolutely YES, the problem with rational thinking is that our brain as a receiver is exposed to all kind of information and can effortlessly pick an external idea, then later on perceive it as it’s own. which boils down to this, the information in the mind is not 100% YOU or the divine knowledge. Indeed it’s 90% from the external influence. Thus a gut feeling tend to be super accurate in respect to thought. If you would ask an intuitive people they will tell you ” my intuition is always correct”, yet you will be shocked at how little they follow their intuition. There’s a very fine line between overthinking and taking action, after you get a gut feeling. If you don’t move within seconds. you might as well deny the feeling in your heart.
Everything in the universe is energy, including yourself. Energy is immortal. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed; energy can only be transferred or changed from one form to another again. From this definition we can understand the way in which the universe moves…
Let’s have a look at time, it tend to be moving in a circle and repeating itself again and again. Everything inside time is also moving in a circle, each particle of water in a wave moves in a circle. For every new moon a complete circle must accrue. The wind, the planets , the galaxy..etc. All the small circles are in serves to the life cycle. Therefore, time would be the outer circle that contains life. Is time dependent on life? Absolutely not. Time will go on even if there’s no life. It’s just an infinit motion by it’s own.
Then where would the human cycle stand ? The human cycle can be described as a one big moving circle. Found outside of time and life. Indeed it consist both life and time, yet dependent on it’s own. I said “moving ” because a human life have a motion by itself. Every year and every day is a completion of the human age. However after the physical body of the human being die. The human true form of being stays, Which is the soul. A soul is infinitely existing. Even after the death of the physical body. The physical body life spam motion have a speed and this’s why i mentioned “moving” instead of just “A circle”. On the other hand, The soul life spam moves quit slowly. It’s unaffected by time. DEATH IS NOT THE END, IT’S JUST THE BEGINNING.
To conclude, Nature will dance in circles to remind you that you’re life is a moving circle ruled by Time. Which is by itself an endless loop repeating itself over and over again.
Do you think you are independent at this point of time? … You know I always thought i’m independent at many stages in my life. But every time I think I’m, I discover I’m actually not independent. He who answered this question as “NO”. Is the closest to the truth; YOU CAN NEVER BE INDEPENDENT.
Sure! You will grow and become independent in the dictionary of this world. You will own things..no longer need your parents or people etc. Best of all, you will become emotionally independent ( by spiritualgrowth). Emotional independence is the advanced level of independence. It have a strong link with spirituality since emotions are the language of the heart. When you come to the realisation that your soul is independent of this world, you will learn to survive on your own (with the help of God only). Emotional independent is the detachment from all external sources. It’s such a POWERFUL state of being and it’s empowered even more with the reliance on God.
The reality is, we can’t achieve full independence. Simply because we’re created as The slaves of god. A slave is always needy. Always Relying on his master. It’s a blessing dont you think ? When you understand that your creator is the sustainer and most generous, you will happily submit to him.
