Are We Conscious Enough to Change?

Thought for Today:

We unconsciously become the experience of previous generations, unless we consciously become the change.

sun in handsMost people in our modern world are aware that their DNA – the building blocks of our bodies – are passed on to us by our parents.

Attitudes and thought patterns are passed along in much the same way. Early on, our parents have the strongest influence and later our peer groups. Then, of course, we are all impacted by societal mental soup in which we swim. Few would argue that our own personality is in there somewhere impacting the person we become. However, we unconsciously accept and create models of the world based on how those around us see it.

The end product is often a human being holding strongly to beliefs he or she had almost no role in creating. Yet, our connection to those beliefs – that model of the world – are so strong many are willing to kill and die for them.

The question is sometimes asked, “If humans were capable of changing wouldn’t we have already changed?” The assumption in that question is that we cannot change because we have not changed.

Ethnic and religious wars spring up in our world over the simple right of the other to exist. Humans have and continue to enslave humans. Military, political, and economic empires are built on the sweat and tears of people we never see.

Can we change? Well, my answer is yes and no. If our plan is to unconsciously continue inheriting, then no we cannot and we will not change. On the other hand, if we choose become consciously aware of this habitual “mental DNA”, we most certainly can see an end to the unconsciousness.

Without artificial interference, there is little we can do with the physical genes we get other than make the most of them. Fortunately, our mental genes can easily be changed by us whenever we choose.

My latest books are the Anunnaki Awakening: Revelation (Book 1 of a trilogy) and The Power to Be You: 417 Daily Thoughts and Affirmations for Empowerment. I have written prolifically on the topics of personal development and human potential for many years. By day, I write sales training for Fortune 100 company. I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.

  1. This is a great post Ray, I love the thought you open with.

    I would just add that I think often people get “being” the change confused with “doing” the change. In my opinion, you have to first BE the change, to make the shift internally, before you can *do* anything with lasting value. Your actions have to arise from a place of being.

    That is why affirmations and personal development is so important and, to my mind, one of the most selfless things you can do – because only from a place of personal peace and strength can you hope to have a positive impact on the people and world around you.

    That’s my two cents, anyway 🙂

    1. Emily,

      Hello and thank you for taking a moment to leave such a thoughtful comment. I could not have said it better myself. That’s a very valuable two cents!

      Stay inspired!
