Reality Check (5th)

Our Minds—Crazy Monkeys On Speed

Paradigm-shattering experiments published in peer-reviewed journals reveal that we’re bathed in a field of intelligent energy that fills what used to be thought of as empty space.

Additional discoveries show beyond any reasonable doubt that this field responds to us—it rearranges itself—in the presence of our heart-based feelings and beliefs.  And this is the revolution that changes everything.

            —Greg Braden, author of The Spontaneous Healing Of Belief

If our thoughts impact the field, does that explain why what’s called “prayer” works/doesn’t work?

If the field reacts to our thoughts, judgements, and beliefs, it would seem obvious that an undisciplined mind, roaming at random here, there, anywhere, is producing a hodge podge of brief reactions that are repeatedly changing because our minds are always changing.

We hold no thought in mind long enough to see it manifest in our lives.

A one-time prayer followed by literally thousands of contrary thoughts produces. . . ?

A person decides to hold in mind only thoughts of good health, but then through the day obsesses fearfully about covid19.

Another one sets mental sights firmly on financial security, but through the day worries about overdue bills.

“The degree of freedom from unwanted thoughts and the degree of concentration on a single thought are the measures to gauge spiritual progress.”

            —Ramana Maharshi

“. . . whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence, and if anything  (is) worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things.”

—New Testament; Philippians 4:8

More on this later.
