Thought Creates Our World

“Thought creates our world and then says “I didn’t do it!”.
— David Bohm

The title of this blog is a quote from David Bohm, one of the most influential physicists of the 20th century and a front runner in the field of quantum physics.

What Bohm is pointing to is that the e-mail I got from my boss had no meaning, until I gave it my unique meaning. The competitor moving in across the street means nothing, until I give it meaning.  The down turn in the market means nothing, until I create a meaning for it, and so, therefore, all these feelings that go against my success have been caused by my thoughts, not by events.

We, as a collective culture, have bought into the belief that events and people can make us feel and act a certain way. This belief is the biggest obstacle between having an ok business, an ok career or an ok life and having a fantastic innovative business, a shy rocketing career and an blissful life. 

Events cannot cause feelings, they don’t have that power.  It’s not really how the brain works. 
The biological computer processes thoughts. That’s it. That’s all. Thoughts. Nothing else. 
It is always and only processing your thoughts. It is not processing “situations.” It only feels that way. But it also “feels like” the earth is flat and it “feels like” the sun goes away at night. We misinterpret a lot! Until we don’t.

And once we don’t, the biocomputer can now be used for what it was intended to be used for: to get you what you really want.

The most important relationship you’ll ever have is the relationship with your own thinking.

Question your thinking.
