CONTEMPLATION and The Science of How Thoughts Control Your Life

The thought for today is CONTEMPLATION.

For at least three minutes, relax, breathe, and let your mind be fed by whatsoever is good and beautiful. Many sacred texts tell us some variation of ‘your thoughts shape your reality’.

“The ultimate value of life depends upon awareness and the power of contemplation rather than upon mere survival.” –Aristotle

Today: I take a moment to relax, breathe and let my mind be fed by what is good and beautiful. As I think, so I am! I will write down my thoughts and share them with others.

Your beliefs become your thoughts

Your thoughts become your words

Your words become your actions

Your actions become your habits

Your habits become your values

Your values become your destiny

The Science of How Thoughts Control Life

The Biology of Belief:  Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter & Miracles by Bruce Lipton, PhD – This book is a groundbreaking work in the field of new biology and will forever change how you think about your own thinking. 

Through the research of Bruce Lipton, PhD and other leading-edge scientists, stunning new discoveries have been made about the interaction between your mind and body and the processes by which cells receive information. It shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology, that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our thoughts. Using simple language, illustrations, humor and everyday examples, Dr. Lipton demonstrates how the new science of Epigenetics is revolutionizing our understanding of the link between mind and matter, and the profound effects it has on our personal lives and the collective life of our species.

An interesting discussion in the book centers on how Dr. Lipton‘s understanding of the New Biology led him to realize the importance of integrating the realm of Spirit and Science, a radical shift from his background as an agnostic scientist.

Dr. Lipton discusses “smart” cells and why and how they can teach  us so much about our minds and bodies.  He lays out scientific evidence to show us how genes do not control biology.  He introduces us to the exciting discoveries of epigenetics, a new field of biology that is unraveling the mysteries of how the environment (nature) influences the behavior of cells without changing the genetic code.  It is a field that is uncovering new complexities in the nature of disease, including cancer and schizophrenia.  Dr. Lipton explains the cell’s membrane, the “skin” of the cell, and how the membrane is the true brain of the cellular operation.  He also talks about quantum physics and how discoveries have profound implications for understanding and treating disease.  Dr. Lipton explains how positive and negative beliefs control our biology and how we can use this knowledge to create lives filled with health and happiness.  He reveals why cells and people need to grow and how fear shuts down that growth.  Dr. Lipton also dedicates a chapter on conscious parenting and how parents program their children’s beliefs.
