Lets define the three principles of well-being; consciousness, belief (or mind) and thought.
Consciousness is our innate right to create any belief we want. It’s referred to by other names such as free will, free agency or free thought. This is the part of the mind that brings us awareness of ourselves. A mistake often made here is that we believe most every thought we have when in fact much of them are not at all truth but made up to confirm our perception of reality, i.e., if we created a belief that was not true, we would believe that it was true. Let’s use an example of a person who believes smoking is good for them. We all know that smoking is not good for us and done over a long period of time causes many health issues including death. However, by the peril of our life, if we just accept that belief, or any other false belief, as truth we will suffer the consequences of our actions supported by the false belief. If you believe smoking is good for you and you then smoke, you risk possible death. If you believe that driving fast is safe and you drive fast, you risk possible death. If you believe that eating sugar won’t hurt you and you eat sugar, you risk possible death.
Belief (or mind)
This is were thought is created. This is also referred to as the sub-consciousness mind. This part of the mind is like a computer that takes instruction from software and executes it. It doesn’t care if the software will lead to a bad or good result, it just takes the instruction and executes it. With that, to further define consciousness, would be like the software written by either a wise programer or a uninformed programmer. A wise programer would create software (beliefs) that would give the instructions to create good outcomes. An uniformed programmer, like a person who believes smoking is good for them, would create software that would not lead to a proper outcome.
These are the actual thoughts that are created from the beliefs in the mind. We are a product of our thoughts. It has been said that up to 90% of our thoughts are not true because they are a product of the false beliefs we created in the mind. You are what you think. Or perhaps another way to say this truth is to say you are what you believe.
Insecurities are only false beliefs. They were created in the conscious mind. Because they are beliefs the vast majority of the people that have them, believe they are true. Have you ever said, “I’m not really that good at something.” Or, “I’ll never get ahead financially.” They are only made up beliefs yet unfortunately the subconscious mind, the computer, doesn’t know that and executes the order from the conscious mind and they end up manifesting themselves exactly as you believed. Don’t believe you’re good at something and you’re not. Believe you are good at something and in time you will be.
Common responses as a result of insecurity
The most common result can be summed up in one word; judgmental. Being judgmental has two sides. The first side is from the person who delivered the judgement. Here is an example. Lets say a person was about 30 lbs overweight. From above we know being overweight was created because of a false belief. Perhaps the belief that originated out of consciousness was, “It’s fine to eat 3 donuts a day with sugar in my coffee before work.” As a result of this belief, the person probably eats 3 or more donuts every day and gained 30 extra pounds. Then the judgement directed at another person to support that belief, “Look at that fat person who is 70 lbs overweight eat a half dozen donuts. That person is really fat and disgusting.” That is a pure judgement; that person is disgusting because they are 70 lbs over weight. The person now feels justified in their own poor belief about eating 3 donuts a day and only being 30 lbs overweight.
The second side of this is on the receiving end. If that person heard the comment might take offense to being called disgusting. Acting on their own belief that it’s okay to eat 6 donuts a day and being 70 lbs overweight might be mad to justify that belief.
How to benefit from this knowledge
The best way to use this knowledge is to understand that your conscious mind is free to choose any belief and from that belief, the tangible equivalent will be manifested. Instead of using your free will and choice to believe, “I’ll never get ahead financially” you choose to believe, “I create wealth with ease!” They are both just beliefs that the subconscious mind will act on through subsequent thought and will manifest the final result. Remember, the subconscious mind is like a computer and will only act on the instruction given it. If you give it the belief, “I’ll never get ahead financially” that’s exactly what will happen.
The same example holds true with our donut eaters. They can choose to believe, “I eat nutritionally dense food and my body becomes healthy, lean and sexy.”
The other way to use this knowledge is use it to never again be offended by the words or actions of another human being. Here’s how. You have to fully understand that every human being uses consciousness, belief (mind) and thought exactly the same way you do. Because everyone does it makes them human and prone for mistakes in judgment. If they act out on one of their insecurities and say a mean judgmental thing, you must understand they probably didn’t realized why they even said it. Of course being judgmental is never good but we all judge all the time based on our own beliefs. You can then choose to create the following belief, “I’m always happy and at peace with myself and the words of another have no power over me because I understand may be just a reaction to one of their insecurities and they don’t even realize why they are saying it.”
It takes practice to perfect this important concept. It has been perfected with many people and you too can become a master at it and then have absolute control over your destiny.
Although I’ve been very brief, the concept is really simple to understand and to perfect it’s use will take willful practice. You’ll have to be aware of your “self talk”, i.e., your willful beliefs. When you learn what your beliefs are then you can begin to see if they need to be scraped (“I’ll never get ahead financially.”) and replaced with better ones (“I create wealth with ease.”)
Use your gift of a conscious mind and free will to create abundant and awesome belief and then watch your life change!
