10 Ways to the New Body Paradigm

10 Ways to the New Body Paradigm

Here are some vast assumptions, the makings of a new reality, yet all are grounded in the discoveries of quantum physics and made almost a hundred years ago. The seeds of this new paradigm were planted by Einstein, Bohr Heisenberg, and the other pioneers of quantum physics, who realized that the accepted way of viewing the physical world was false.

1. The physical world, including our bodies, is a response of the observer. We create our bodies as we create the experience of our world.

2. In their essential state, our bodies are composed of energy and information, not solid matter.

3. The mind and body are inseparably one. The unity that is “me” separates into two streams of experience. I experience the subjective stream as thoughts, feelings, and desires. I experience the objective stream as my body. At a deeper level, however, the two streams meet at a single creative source. It is from this source that we are meant to live.

4. The biochemistry of the body is a product of awareness. Beliefs, thoughts and emotions create the chemical reactions that uphold life in every cell.

5. Perception appears to be automatic, but in fact it is a learned phenomenon. The world you live in, including the experience of your body, is completely dictated by how you learned to perceive it. If you change your perception, you change the experience of your body and your world.

6. Impulses of intelligence create your body in new forms every second. What you are is the sum total of these impulses, and by changing their patterns, you will change.

7. Although each person seems separate and independent, all of us are connected to patterns of intelligence that govern the whole cosmos. Our bodies are part of a universal body, our minds an aspect of a universal mind.

8. Time does not exist as an absolute, but only eternity. What we call linear time is a reflection of how we perceive change. If we could perceive the changeless, time would cease to exist as we know it.

9. Each of us inhabits a reality lying beyond all change. Deep inside us, unknown to the five senses, is an innermost core of being, a field of non-change that creates personality, ego and body. This being is our essential state–it is who we really are.

10. We are not victims of aging, sickness, and death. These are part of the scenery, not the seer, who is immune to any form of change.

We learn these concepts through yoga practice and a book called the yoga sutras. It is explained over and over again in classes, on a more subtle level usually, but the quantum physics aspect will hopefully bring some more intrigue to the teachings of over 5,000 years ago. All those yoga studios popping up near you...there's a reason for that! Yoga to the world, help spread the knowledge that we are all one.

We are stuck when we resist our true self,
You choose ~The walking dead or ~

* Tiga Forest says:
What about an infant that has no beliefs, thoughts, or emotions yet--what creates the chemical reactions that upholds it's life in every cell?

Tiga, surely an infant has conciousness? and emotions and thoughts? It may not be able to express them, but surely it feels happiness and unhappiness, recognises it's mother, etc.?

As he says - "vast assumptions".
I love how people attach 'Quantum theory' to their own pet ideas and make out that it somehow proves them right!

Max, I think the quantum theory, Einsteinian physics, etc., should be understood with all their implications... else further research would be nearly impossible...

And now, several minutes later, and through totally unknown atoms, I now have an almost identical double post. I'm sorry for that.
