Through the ages which have passed, man has depended too much upon his physical senses, and has limited his knowledge to physical things, which he could see, touch, weigh, and measure. We are now entering the most marvelous of all ages—an age which will teach us something of the intangible forces of the world about us. Perhaps we shall learn, as we pass through this age, that the “other self” is more powerful than the physical self we see when we look into a mirror.

 

Sometimes men speak lightly of the intangibles— the things which they cannot perceive through any of their five senses, and when we hear them, it should remind us that all of us are controlled by forces which are unseen and intangible.

 

After I had ventured out of rehab from addiction, one thing that I truly wanted to understand is why it is that I think this way. As I have said in previous weeks, I started studying Psychology, which led to the study of Habits.

 

Charles Duhigg, who had won a Pulitzer Prize for his work on habits, noted research on the brain function of rats going through a maze. He stated that as a rat went through a maze for the first time, the brain function was off the chart. The rat was going through very, very slowly, checking out every little detail, every corner, the walls… it was learning the maze. So obviously, it didn’t need to do that the 150th time going through. And as it went through that 150th time, the brain function of the rat was so slow… it was the same as if the rat were sleeping. It wasn’t functioning.

 

We have these neuro-pathways, countless nerve endings (which the book states is between 10 to 14 billion) and what should be noted is the pathways throughout our neuro-mind can be defined like a river. Water goes to the where it is easiest. So do our thoughts. And one of the easiest ways around that is a constantly changing environment. That’s why a mastermind works. It’s because the mind is being challenged to be more, which is healthy for the mind. It keeps it from being stagnant. It calls for growth.

 

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.” – Nikola Tesla

 

“Matter is energy… energy is light… we are all light beings.” – Albert Einstein

 

Being that we are these beings made of light/energy, it makes sense that we can tap the energy of others. I know that when certain people enter a room, you can feel the negative energy immediately. What do we say when that happens? We say “it just RESONATES with them…” the opposite is true… someone joyous comes into the room… we say “I just FEEL better when I see them. That’s their energy. And I do believe we can tap into that “creative imagination because of that.
