Thinking About Thinking

Have you ever thought about the way you think or your own process of thinking? We are so engrossed in the material aspects of our day to day life most of us rarely do.  Instead our thinking runs on an autopilot of ‘to do’ lists, obligations, family and social life etc.  In this mode we tend to experience life through a lens of our values, beliefs and perceptions as the way things are or are supposed to be.   Our lens can be very rigid because of the groups we belong to who may set our values and beliefs for us.   Our need for belonging to the group in this case, will allow us to only see as much as the group can see.  We won’t even know that until we experience problems, pain and limitations involved in the boundaries of our groups or the edge of our thinking.   We may experience situations where others won’t see life our way or we ourselves would like to change our lens on life and operate with a new belief or value but it’s not allowed by our group.   Inner conflicts, family feuds and all other manner of stresses can result.  Our body may go into pain to handle the stress of it all.  

 

Political campaigns often remind me that we all have different ways of seeing the world.  I pity the politicians who have to get support from lots of different groups who don’t always agree with each other on the world perceptions.

Last night I listened in on the www.BeyondAwakeningSeries.com lecture by Steven Macintosh author of a book I’d recommend called Integral Consciousness and I was inspired by what  he says are the two most important words about thinking: “Consciousness Evolves” .   That is a huge statement to take in if you are not in the habit of reviewing how your organization, your family, your group, or yourself etc thinks about things.   When we challenge our beliefs, values and perceptions and those of our groups,  individually and collectively we evolve our process of thinking.  As we change others change with us.   If we are really ‘tuned in’ as they say, we can actually feel the pulse of the group as it changes its thinking pattern.  They call this the evolutionary impulse and we are all biologically wired to it more than we know.    A bit academic perhaps, but it was a reminder for me about the spiraling awareness effects of Resonance Repatterning sessions. 

Life happens, you experience problems, you do your best to clear them and get help when needed.  With repatterning you examine your thoughts and adjust the pathway of thinking. The session systematically creates new insights and awareness for us in a kinda of connect the dot’ experience in our own best timing.  The magic is that when we change so do others.

Next Sunday the www.BeyondAwakeningSeries.com will be sponsoring another favorite author – Jean Houston who has some very inspiring things to say about our interconnection and our role as evolutionary thinkers.    You can sample her wisdom at her twitter feed: http://www.twitter.com/jeanhouston

With light and love,
