If Your Past Did Not Exist,
Who Would You Be Today?
Indeed, an interesting philosophical question to ponder. We are reminded each day of our past; past pain, past joy, past missed opportunities the list can go on and on. Are we simply a product of our past? Are we a product of our future?
Does the moment exist? Faster than you can read that statement, you are already in the past. We can contemplate the future, but as soon as we do, it is in the past. Or to say it a different way, we may daydream about a future event, but doing so takes the event and puts the energy of it in our past, mixed with our previous memories.
How many have looked forward to a wonderful vacation to a tropical paradise, you count down the months, weeks, and days. Finally, you are there, experienced it, and now it is past. You leave and go back home with memories, perhaps pictures or gifts you bought to remind you of your vacation. How many of those memories are accurate? How many are false? How many are a mixture of memories? How many of those memories of the vacation are a product of our contemplation of the future event we dwelled upon before the trip?
Are we living our lives based on incomplete, false memories, or desired memories? How is our life experienced today based upon this? What if our past did not exist? What if our future did not exist? Many quantum physicists state time is an illusion; perhaps it should be called quantum illusion.
It certainly brings up the question, how many memories are partially or entirely false? Many studies of eyewitness accounts are proving to be false. Take Kirk Bloodsworth for example; he was convicted of rape and murder of a nine-year-old girl and sentenced to death. His conviction was the result of five eyewitnesses. After he served nine years in prison DNA testing vindicated him. How many people are put to death based on false memories?
How can it occur that each eyewitness has a different point of view, a different perception of a past event? Events are recorded in our brain based on the emotional state we are in when the event occurs. You can search the Internet about many different experiments on how a group of people who were an eyewitness to an event, has various interpretations of that same event. Is one right is one wrong? It is well established in trials that eyewitnesses are one of the most unreliable witnesses, but juries, unfortunately, do not see this.
How many have heard or said, I am who I am today because of my past? But what if your past is false, what if your past is an illusion, who or what does that make you today. Who will you be tomorrow?
Creating the same reality over and over when
expecting a different reality creates futility.
Some may become angry at the above statement, especially if they have an active investment in their past, or they feel their past cannot, or should not be changed. If it works for you, then continue, but if it does not function for you, perhaps you should consider the truth or lack of truth about your past.
Jonah has taught many lessons over the last three decades on human consciousness and how we create. In this Internet age of exploration of consciousness, there are certainly many distractors about what consciousness is and is not. Some say consciousness is a product of our brain, genetics, and environment; this is true, but far from the whole truth.
Jonah has taught over the years; time is an illusion. Many predominate physicists have taught time is an illusion, such as Albert Einstein and Richard Feynman. I would propose a question, what if the “perception” of time is the illusion?
I will use an example; let’s say a person’s life span is described as birth point A to death point B. Now let’s state point A to point B is filmed, their entire life, every second is filmed. What if you were to take that movie put it on digital disk in a computer and speed your entire life into a nanosecond. A nanosecond is one thousand-millionth of a second. Now let’s say you had infinite versions of that same movie, each version having different potentialities out of endless possibilities, but that one life still exists from point A to point B. I suggest you search Double Slit Experiment. When consciousness becomes involved, does it change the outcome? Some say yes, some say no. From what my teachers have taught me the answer is yes. Consciousness changes the outcome; it changes the past and future. From where does consciousness come? Many believe the brain and the mind are one and the same. I do not agree with this. The brain is a physical organism that can receive and project thoughts by releasing neurotransmitters which are chemical messengers communicating with all parts of your nervous system, which include hormones relating to many different emotional states. Neurotransmitters are also responsible for many different diseases in the physical body.
As I wrote earlier, some say consciousness is a product of our brain, genetics, and environment; this is true, but far from the whole truth.
Our brain comes preprogrammed with our inherited genetics, which has an influence on how we experience our environment during our lifetime.
The physical brain is the tool for the non-physical mind,
a part of our twelve-body system, which includes both
our lower and higher soul.
The mind is the source of non-physical energy, which uses the brain for our physical creation.
What happens when our brain interferes with our mind? Are we predestined to follow our inherited genetics reliving the footsteps of our ancestors, making the same choices experiencing the same outcomes the same reality? Are we reliving our past through our ancestors?
Looking at the mass consciousness, one would certainly think so.
Recently in the news, there has been a lot of talk about a man killing another man live on Facebook. What shook up many people were how many tuned into that live recording to watch the murder. Is this any different than what occurred in the Roman Colosseum? 50,000 spectators could watch Gladiator fights, wild animal duels, and ritual murders. One can look at our history when hanging black men and woman was viewed as a spectator sport. There is a current debate to televise executions on pay per view television. Some people are willing to pay to watch a human being be put to death. How barbaric the human consciousness can become. Has the mass consciousness changed over the millenniums?
Mass consciousness is the brain without the mind
bonded with the heart.
Are you who you are today because of mass consciousness? Or are you who you are today because of your higher mind bonded with your heart?
Back to the question, if your past did not exist, who would you be today? To add to this question, if your future did not exist who would you be today?
Jonah has often taught, “Healing can occur in the twinkling of an eye or 10,000 lifetimes.”
What does that mean? Indeed, if presented with the question each would answer, I want to heal in the twinkling of an eye. Who wants to take 10,000 lifetimes?
Perhaps Jonah is speaking about the illusion of time when he makes that statement? Remember Point A to Point B lifetime taking a nanosecond. Perhaps there is something more to this statement?
If your genetic brain is programmed to fail or is programmed to live a life of pain and suffering, are you following in the footsteps of your ancestors? Perhaps this is the meaning of 10,000 lifetimes.
Memories can be a very complex issue for us. Each time we access a memory; it changes just by thinking about it. It has been shown through extensive research that thinking about a memory releases neurotransmitters, which in turn changes the actual memory, as well as your reaction to the memory. To us, the memory is going to be perceived as true. How does the memory change? Can we tell ourselves we are who we are today because of our past? But if our past is false or misinterpreted, who or what does that make us today?
Something to ponder which Jonah has stated over the years. “Something is so ancient it has not yet occurred.”
