The Science of Interconnectedness & Proactive Creation – [VIDEO]: TEDx

Written by on February 18, 2017 in Psychology-Psychiatry, Sci-Tech, Science with 0 Comments

I am always reminding myself just how important it is to have a game plan. I like to know where I’m going as well as the fastest and simplest way to get there. I’m a list-maker, a goal-setter, and I’m the queen of travel itineraries, but sometimes the stiff, rigidness of being a Capricorn gets a bit old and I like to just wing it and leave things up to chance.

There’s nothing wrong with this and in fact, I highly encourage spontaneity. But there’s a huge difference between literally choosing to surrender to the moment and simply relax into it, and well just floating along in life bumping against rocks and logs.

How many of us do this with the majority of our lives? How many of us are not living as conscious creators, but rather on auto-pilot where instead of us going out into the world and happening to things; things continue to happen to us? The end result being that we continue to succumb to fate, rather than creating our destiny.

One of the greatest lessons I’ve ever learned in my life is that everything is connected. This is a tough concept to grasp when our physical senses want so intensely to convince us that we are separate. But as I mention is just about every article of mine, everything is energy and therefore there is no divide, but a mere convincing and illusory perception of it.

Once we fully grasp this Truth, it becomes much more difficult to treat others poorly because you see yourself in everyone. You can connect with the homeless man on the corner with reverence and compassion, you can connect with the lost child with calm assertion and empathy…we begin to see the struggle, the emotion the FEELING in others over the physical “hardness” of our bodies. We are now able to focus more on what binds us rather than what can potentially divide us.

Which brings me to the 2 basic ways of living; either in proactive creation or on auto-pilot. I highly recommend the first as it is comparing yourself safely behind the wheel of a moving car you know is safe vs one you are aware may have lost its brakes, etc. It’s living with the power to steer your life with calm, empowered direction. When we are not consciously creating our lives, we default to auto-pilot living where our lives are ultimately created for us by the “outside” world; further instilling the illusion of separation.

This is why it is so important to be mindful of our actions and to always be creating your life! If you don’t, someone else will! 🙂

Please take a gander at the video below featuring Cassandra Vieten of the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), it is amazing and speaks further on the topic here of interconnectedness and even takes a bit of a deeper dive into the actual science behind it. Enjoy!
