Easter.........A Perfect Day to Resurrect What You Already Know!!!

Resurrect what you already know??? Does it sit better with you if it was phrased "Challenge every belief you have ever had in order to know something different?". Your beliefs absolutely control what you know........you know that, Don't you?

Less than one / one billionth of the stimuli we have access to (which is everything) is processed by us at any given time. There are a number of reasons why it is limited, but for today I want to focus on the process by which the specific stimuli (out of the infinite possibilities that we have) that we do process is determined.

It's actually very simple, we process the stimuli or information that supports what we already know or believe. Makes sense, it's congruent with our previous thoughts, but it's also limiting because it prevents us from cognizing new ideas. Cognize, or "to Know" new ideas or information. By accepting and processing information that supports our experiences and beliefs we re-cognize or recognize that as truth. Nothing wrong with that unless what you are trying to do is change......which is why change is so difficult and at times painful for so many of us.

Think about it this way, why did people used to think that the world was flat? Because our sense of vision made it seem that it was. Why did we used to think that the Sun revolved around the Earth? Because it came up in the East and rotated around us until setting in the West. Collectively we all changed our beliefs or knowledge about both of these concepts after an individual radical thinker (some of whom lost their life because of their thinking) proposed something different.

By the way, how many different senses do you believe you have? Five? What if you have more and what if the additional ones were actually accurate rather than being perceptions? What would that mean? STOP right here and think about that, what would that mean?......because we do have more than 5, and they are actually accurate. But thats an entire topic on it's own.

Resurrect what you already know everyday by viewing life for what it is......A Process by which you are provided opportunity after opportunity to remember who you are and what you are fully capable of..........and that is of course, Anything!!! You can be, do or have anything you want!!!! And the only thing you have to do is change the way you think! Simple huh?..........yes, Simple, but not easy....unless you choose to make it easy.

Here is how to make it easy:
1. Everyday, learn at least one new and meaningful thing.
2. Everyday, teach at least one meaningful thing to another person.
3. Everyday, do something meaningful for another person, and it's best if they don't even know that you did it.
4. And lastly, everyday, treat all living things (everything) with respect!!

The importance of these 4 items listed is not what or how you do them............it's WHY you do them!!!!

Why learn something meaningful everyday? For me, it's to learn and reiterate that the Universe is infinite and expansive.
Why teach something meaningful everyday? The best way to learn is to teach!!!
Why do something meaningful for another person without them knowing you did it? Just to experience how it feels.............What you do for another, you do for yourself!!!
Why treat all living things with respect? What you do for another, you do for yourself!!! We are all connected, You know that, don't you?

Resurrect the greatest vision you have ever had of yourself..........Be the change you want in the world!!!! You can have, be or do anything that you decide!!! Decide Well!!!!
