Image you were forever alive. Imagine you’d have to live with all the consequences of your actions. For ever?
Now let us bring that one step further. Imagine you were all the same. Whatever you would do to someone or something else you would do to yourself.
Would that influence your actions?
Momentarily I am reading the book: “An End to Upside Down Thinking: Dispelling the Myth That the Brain Produces Consciousness, and the Implications for Everyday Life” by Mark Gober.
He states that the brain is not creating consciousness but that conscioussnes does exist outside of the material body and in fact is creating everything else.
The one theory that most of these thoughts are based on, is that everything that can be proven by science can only be validated by our conscious mind. There is no proof that anything could ever be validated without a conscious mind to validate it.
We can imagine such a scenario and based on our findings now is has to be exactly the same without our conscious mind. sounds logical but is impossible to be proven. One thing we can not explain so far is how consciousness evolved and how it is created. Almost all aspects of life in this physical world can be explained, but not consciousness.
The foundation of our science is the validation by our consciousness.
Consciousness is proclaimed to be caused by us (our brain) but cannot be proven.
Therefor our whole scientific belief system of the physical worls is based on the one thing that cannot be explained by it and yet is generally considered to the cause for exactly that, our conscious mind.
If you look at it this way it can‘t make sense, therefor the explanation of Makr Gober is to turn it around and say: first was consciousness and it created everything else.
We still don‘t know where it comes from but all of a sudden the scientific system makes sense and errors like the difference between the theorie of relativity and quantum mechanics won‘t cause the whole theoretic system to collapse.
Furthermore the supernatural things that occur in life also make sense.
It would indeed mean something more:
It is not us, it is not me, who created my conscious mind which is different from everybody elses. It would mean that there is only one consciousness, that decided to become partially me in this physical (or physical imagined) world, as well as anybody and anything else on earth.
As a consequence of these thoughts my conscious mind or if you will my soul will never die and might come back in a different packing multiple times. You might live with the results of your actions for eternity. Imagine now, the whole physical world and the life within does only have the one reason, to help the universal consciousness grow….
What would that mean for you and your life?

While planning is mostly done in our frontal cortex, the conscious mind, intuition or gutt feeling is more of an unconscious process.
While for a large part of my life I was sure that the more knowledge I have, the better decisions I can take and therefor become a better person, this belief changed over the last years.
I had to learn that although our conscious decisions seem to make so much sense, our unconsious is really in charge.
When conscious mind is in charge of the navigation, the unconscious is the running the boat, being the skipper. As long as we don’t convince the skipper that our navigation is correct, we can calculate as much as we want and will still never change the course.
Therefor it is not so much a question of planning VERSUS intuition but more planning AND intuition.
Make plans and take decisions what to do and then check back with your intuition if this is the right way to go. Be careful, it speaks in a very soft voice and when you hear it trust your gutt. Your unconscious always wants to protect you and will be your strongest supporter if you act accordingly.
So many people want to already reach the goal the moment they start with something. At least they want to know every single step until they make it to the goal. If they don’t they won’t even start.
I can tell you that sometimes it just is so much more effective to just get it started and then show enough persistence to keep going and learn from the feedback.
Ever thought about your identity being shaped by what your your ancestors might have experienced? Well, if not, maybe you should.
What makes up your personality? Is it your thoughts? If yes… what are your thoughts? Are they anyhow physical? Did you ever touch them? Are they solid?
I guess that most of the answers will be a no. So as you can watch and like or dislike a rainbow, you could also treat your thoughts. Don’t take them to serious. Don’t take yourself too serious.
Let the good and the bad thoughts come and go and you… be yourself!
Do you have dreams or do you live your dreams?
Maybe both. In any case living your dreams might just not feel as desirable as you thought before and you might keep chasing and chasing for new dreams.
Whatever you do. Pause every once in a while and value what you already have.

How do you like to be motivated by others? Pressure of motivation?
So how do you motivate yourself? And does it make sometimes sense to be motivated through pressure for a while?
It is not the weather that makes you feel good or bad it is always yourself. Have you ever been sad when the sun is shining? Have you ever been happy when it was raining?
There we go! Isn’t it the same with all of your thoughts?
There is no good or bad. There are just thoughts and you alone decide wether they make you feel good or bad.mind you can feel however you want to
