What if I told you that an iceberg didn’t sink the Titanic? OK, you’d probably say David is off on one of his “conspiracy theory” trips again or that he finally fell off the deep end. Well, it’s true an iceberg DIDN’T sink the Titanic…the Titanic sank from the water that flooded it after the Titanic hit the iceberg!! It’s not just a matter of semantics, it’s a simple example of what a paradigm shift is.
When The Church told us that the the Sun, Planets and stars revolved around the Earth and went out of it’s way to persecute anyone who said otherwise (despite having empirical data stating the obvious), we were in desperate need of a large paradigm shift, a paradigm shift that I’m glad to report we now have successfully accomplished. Just ask anyone you know and they’ll tell you the Earth revolves around the Sun.
The Real Secret
Now, what if I told you there was an idea that we have held on to dearly that is in need of the same paradigm shifting? This idea is so big and will be so difficult to get our minds around that there will likely be the same outcry from humanity “how could this be!”.
I recently began reading a book called “The Self Aware Universe” written by Amit Goswami a physics professor at the University of Oregon. If you were one of the ten’s of millions of people who watched the movie “What the Bleep!?: Down the Rabbit Hole” you got a taste of Amit’s theory which is gathering not only momentum in the scientific community, but empirical data in the lab through the study of quantum physics. If you watched or read The Secret it’s basic idea of the laws of attraction is a great introduction to this idea of quantum physics, a good next step for you would be to watch What the Bleep!?
What Does This Mean To Me
The million dollar question: so what does all of this mean to you in your everyday life?? Nothing…if you don’t want it to.
Did the discovery that the Earth was round affect a farmer in France who had no need or desire to cross the Atlantic Ocean? Nope. But if he was looking for more land and a place he could raise his family independantly from the crushing laws and taxes of the King of France…it quite literally meant, the World!
