Bubbles Of Disruption

You adjust your perceptions to a certain frequency, and call what you see “this world.” You can tune yourself to other frequencies whenever you wish. You may not be aware but you know

Richard Bach expressed those thoughts in his book, Messiah’s Handbook. Perceptions do color our world. We don’t realize it, but our perceptions have energy. That energy waits patiently at times, and at other times it explodes and becomes convictions. Convictions are expressions of our truth, but not all of our convictions are true to those around us. Our convictions are the glue that hold our world together, but they may also be the catalyst that tear it apart.

Convictions are beliefs. Beliefs build our world, and we conform to it. We formulate beliefs in several ways. Some are innate, others are learned. Beliefs rise from the invisible water that trickles down from our perception pool. That pool is constantly being fed by the association and influences we encounter on a daily basis. We shift through that pool and reinforce certain perceptions that resonate with what we know to be true. The perceptions that form from other knowledge, or what we call questionable knowledge are considered bubbles of disruption, so we quickly put them in our untruthful mental bank.

Changing our convictions is not easy. We don’t like to rearrange our convenient world of truths even when those truths have expanded in some way. We believe our convictions make us who we are, so if we change them, or add some subsequent energy to them, we think we lose our identity. Identity is the name tag of the ego, and if the ego loses its name we lose control of who we think we are. When the truth of who we are is under attack, we fight the attack anyway we can.

The natural process of perceiving is the engine behind the ego. The ego likes to control that process, but at some point another portion of the self makes adjustments to the ego. When that happens the bubbles of disruption may become rippling ways of truthful discovery.
