In The Mystery

Asking yourself the deeper questions opens up new ways of being in the world. It brings in a breath of fresh air. It makes life more joyful. The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery.

Fred Alan Wolf Ph.D., the award winning author, has the ability to explain quantum mechanics in simple terms. Fred was featured in the movie, What the Bleep Do We Know. The mystery of life surrounds us in our physical reality, and we have been trained to accept it as something we can never fully understand. We tend to fear the mystery so we usually depend on secondary experiences to fill us with information about how we should live, and how we should act and react in the mystery. We rarely depend on our actual contact with our inner environment, and our emotional senses that guide us as we experience certain aspects of that mystery. We have trained ourselves to believe that what we read, watch and discuss is much more real than what we imagine and dream.

Our consciousness is much more than our conscious mind. But, the body has been wired to receive clear assessments from that conscious mind in order to perceive space and time. The body depends on that knowledge to construct the influences and associations that attach themselves to our individual belief structure. Our cultural conditions are established by these secondary influences, and the body mechanism becomes distorted by this objective information. Reading about danger and disaster propels the body into a state of fear when no danger or fear actually exists within our individual reality.

Reading about a natural disaster is different from actually being a part of that disaster, but our ego projects us into that disaster and we feel the danger. We ignore the feedback from our primary consciousness in the present moment, and create pseudo-creature reactions that invade not only the present, but our future experiences. We rob ourselves by limiting our personal ability to act meaningful and with purpose in the now. We begin to believe that the most negative prophesies are the most practical ones even when our conscious mind is telling us we are innately safe.

The body is not designed to act tomorrow, today. Our conscious mind is not designed for extinction nor are we designed to live in fear. Our experiences can be filled with contrast, but there is an innate genius in all of us that guides us. We create the mystery Fred mentions in order to sense other aspects of the self that exist within the conscious mind.
