The New Consciousness

"Ongoing stress creates an energetic environment, affecting town and country, spreading from nation to nation, causing disharmony, disease, storms and wars. The heart's intelligence can help to dissipate these negative energies, giving people a fresh start in learning how to get along. As enough people learn about emotional fitness, it will cause a global shift into new consciousness that many are talking about, and then quality of life has a chance of becoming better for the whole." ~ Doc Childre

Using Our Whole Consciousness

“Most people live, whether physically, intellectually or morally, in a very restricted circle of their potential being. They make very small use of their possible consciousness, and of their soul's resources in general, much like a man who, out of his whole bodily organism, should get into a habit of using and moving only his little finger.” ~ William James

EXPANDING CONSCIOUSNESS

Albert Einstein is still revered by the physics community. In 1999 Time magazine named him the "Person of the Century". In wider culture the name "Einstein" has become synonymous with genius. His genius also extends to a forward thinking philosophy and his many precious words of wisdom.
"A human being is a part of the whole, called by us "Universe," a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security." ~ Albert Einstein, quoted in H Eves Mathematical Circles Adieu (Boston 1977)

"The meaning of life is that we are here to continually grow in consciousness." ~ Owen Waters
