Cynthia Weiser Posted almost 2 years ago Question - Should we make increasing our consciousness as important a topic in schools as the 3 Rs. I not only believe that consciousness goes beyond the five (or more) senses, to me is is part and parcel of the Universe. The Universe, not just ours, but the totality of all universal life we can see and not see, is all One, living, breathing, feeling, thinking consciousness 'soup.' But that's just me and a few billion others who see evidence of it every day in every way. I read recently that a belief is only a thought we keep thinking over and over, and that to change our thinking is to change our lives. Our minds, our thoughts--thinking--have the ability to change, alter, create our current realities to those more in tune with what we would rather experience. I know it; I've seen it; Ive done it. Change your thinking, change your life. That is part of the path the new 'consciousness' is taking, will be taking us right along with it. When we finally get to the point where we realize that LIFE is not happening to us, but that WE are happening to life, that we have choices in the lives we lead, the circumstances we are in, the experiences we have, we will have taken a giant step for the future of humanity.
