I want to share a quote of Dr. Candice Pert [link here] from the film What the Bleep do We Know [link here]. It has helped me to review many of my decisions and situations in my life. Consider seeing this film if you have not seen it in awhile, or at all. Netflix or library rental. I think you can still buy a copy.
“We are bombarded by huge amounts of information, and its coming into our body. And we are processing it, coming in through our sense organs. It’s percolating up and up. And at each step we are eliminating information. And finally, what’s bubbling up to consciousness is the one that is most self serving.” Dr. Canice Pert, What the Bleep Do We Know.
Postscript 10/2013: Rereading this a couple of years later, the above quote still rings very true. Rather frightening when applied to the world situation as reported by the media. I am assuming some of that is true!
This is a concept that I consider when I receive emails from people selling products that have a big fear charge around them concerning the fate of the planet. What seems obvious to me is not obvious to others. Quite often I have to remind myself of the power of fear and its effect on [our] my senses.
