Why is it important to live consciously? How does one affect the world when he lives consciously? And why you should be aware of your thoughts and actions?
Any situation in which the world is, it’s most likely to be the result of our thoughts and thus of our behaviors, which at the higher percentage are unconscious. The whole humanity is something like a big brain, which processes the thoughts of all people and gives a result. Ralph Waldo Emerson called it common mind.
“There is one mind common to all individual men”
he said; eventually, he was right.
The Global Consciousness Project
Dr. Roger Nelson at the University of Princeton created an experiment based on random (seemingly demonstrated) numbers and the intentions of people around the world. He discovered after countless experiments that when portions of people coordinated in a feeling or thought, then the random number generators didn’t produce at all random numbers. He called the project whole project noosphere and it’s the so-called unified field of consciousness described by sages of many ancient cultures.
The state of consciousness of all people creates the order that prevails throughout the Earth. Our thoughts and feelings determine not only the individual condition of our existence, but the whole world in which we live; the subtle interactions between us, connect us to all other people and the Earth, and thus, we create all together the collective consciousness. Just think, how much responsibility each of us has with his thoughts and behaviors towards our fellowmen.
The Science of Quantum Physics
On the other hand, the modern science of quantum physics has shown that at the profound level of our being there is an invisible energy that connects us all. Also, the experiments have shown that the intention of the observer, influences the outcome of the experiment.
Max Planck, the “father” of quantum physics said:
“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.“
According to the modern scientific thought, the whole universe is unified and interconnected and in fact, there is no separation, but, unity. What makes us see the parts of the universe individually, is an illusion created by the physiology of our brains. As shown, however, any action of any part of the whole, affects the whole.
So, it’s important to control and be aware of what we think, what we say and what we do, as all these affect somehow – as uncommon as it may seem, the whole world. It is important to live more consciously, to have positive intentions and behave with kindness towards other people.
