"how can we escape the influence and effects of things of Earth that can harm us of bacterias and virus's that find us?" -LeoVirgo
"How much control are we really in" -LeoVirgo
I feel envious yet this is the same thing that has been happening to me for many years now.
I have attracted many like minds out of the clear blue it seems...and conversations have taken hold like wind on wings. Its been amazing really to see and experience this happening.
Most definitely not. I think control is a deception that helps propagate the illusion of power.
my question...is it really healthy to think we are in total control?
I think we should surrender to this idea. A lot of energy is spent attempting to stop an action and even more in reversing its coarse. It is a much better use of energy to stand aside and try to simply alter the coarse in response to the same action. Keep in mind that we are all in this together and we need each others help. Think of medicine as the focus of others' thoughts, incantation incarnate if you like. What was the original thought when a particular medical item was made or procedure created? Was it of health or profit?
Or should we not surrender to the idea that we are a PART of many other things and these things can effect us and its more our response and reaction that we are in control of
Interesting example. Here is a TED lecture on how bacteria communicate.
Take bacteria and virus's for example...
Thought creates reality for you, me and everyone. This all takes place over time starting from long before we were here and will continue long after. I believe that the seeds of thought planted today will grow beyond the originator of this thought changing and progressing as generations of people pass on. It is up to us to help mold these thoughts into productive and progressively positive directions.
How much control are we really in....without considering other peoples effects on us and the Earths effects on us?
This bugs me too. In the process of waiting for things to get better an opportunity is missed to experience life. The very act of thinking about life creates the thoughts of this life that we are thinking about. What kind of a reality is created when people are waiting for something to happen? The word "limbo" comes to mind.
I see many that await a perfect world, through reaching heaven or ascension ect...and I worry about this kind of thought for others that they will be let down if the hardships of life continue.
My personal belief is that I chose to come here, from wherever it was that I may have been before I was here. Perhaps this was a bad idea to come here, so far so good though, but I have never felt as though my life was forced upon me.
I think Earth is a great teacher...but many think its some sort of a mistake that we are here...that we are here through a force against our will
Consensus reality therefore refers to the agreed-upon concepts of reality which people in the world, or a culture or group, believe are real (or treat as real), usually based upon their common experiences as they believe them to be; anyone who does not agree with these is sometimes stated to be "in effect... living in a different world."Stork, David G., editor (1998). Hal's Legacy: 2001's Computer as Dream and Reality. MIT Press. p. 201. ISBN 0262692112.
Based on a philosophy of subjective idealism, metaphysical solipsists maintain that the self is the only existing reality and that all other reality, including the external world and other persons, are representations of that self having no independent existence.

But as I keep running into these philosophers of life and purpose, many keep telling me that sickness and pain can be 'no more'...we just have to 'think it' to 'create it'.
Now Im all for you are your own maker of your destiny....but I think there is something we leave out in this though of 'to think is to create'.
There are animals that are poisonous to us, there are bacterias that can harm us, there are creatures that can kill us....and I have issues with thinking these things are not supposed to be and that we are to 'think' them away.
I think there are great lessons...in strife...in struggle...in finding the strength to be an example and not a to treat others only as they treat you.
Is life really supposed to be easy? Blissful?

Here is a great example of my point.
Tesla and Edison did not "create" the "modern world" by simply "thinking it into being".
They had to work hard nights without sleep, week after week, for years, trying countless different ways to make their inventions come to life and work properly.
It was hard physical labor, and dangerous too.
Thinking creates ideas.
But to bring an idea to reality it requires physical labor.
Reality creates your thoughts. Thoughts do not create reality! That is ultra egotistical and self-centered to think that you are the center of the universe and merely thinking about things alters the course of the entire universe. It's totally absurd.
In regards to sickness and pain, I have used my mind to cure myself repeatedly since 2002. It is very possible. But it is not instantaneous magic. For example, you have the common cold... perhaps with your thoughts or words you say, "I'm so sick, I feel horrible." With this train of thought you just reinforced the reality that you feel sick. But if you change the wording to something on the lines of... "I'll feel better soon, this sickness will pass soon, my body is strong and will heal itself," you will notice both your symptoms and length of sickness will decrease.
What kind of a reality is created when people are waiting for something to happen? The word "limbo" comes to mind.
What 'self' was creating reality here on Earth...before man walked here to observe and be aware of it all?
