Mind IS Over Matter

I agree with Gandhi here. There’s a transcendent force that goes beyond the physical and beyond the senses that challenges our conception of the universe.

For more than 30 years, I’ve been studying the human mind, consciousness, and spiritual, scientific, and alternative explanations for them.

I’ve come to believe one thing quite firmly. Our current scientific consensus on the composition of the universe is upside down. That consensus contends that the universe is made of matter and that mind/consciousness is what’s called an “emergent property” of matter.

The idea is that, given enough time, the physical properties of the universe become organized enough to birth biological life and the intelligence that comes with. Eventually, you wind up with an intelligence as complex as a human being.

Here’s my contention and it’s the baseline all the affirmations, positive quotes, and inspiring messages here. Mind/consciousness is not an emergent property of matter. Matter is an emergent property of mind, consciousness, and their output – thought.

That’s the reason saying and thinking positive or negatives things is creative in the world.

Again, the scientific consensus argues that mind cannot alter the objective reality of matter. However, there’s a paradox in that view. They’d readily agree that hands and feet can make things happen in the world. Hands and feet don’t invent things. They are physical extensions of mind. In that way, mind does alter reality using them as tools.

Can mind, though, alter reality directly? Is mind actually the source as the causative force underlying the physical world?

I think yes. That’s the evidence of 30 years of study and practice in my own life. That’s the conclusion of numerous great spiritual teachers. Even the science that scoffs at this idea is starting more and more to prove the truth behind this conception of the universe.

The reason it’s not glaringly obvious is that our ability to use this truth to our advantage is limited today. It’s limited, perhaps by the biology we’re working with, but I contend it’s limited more by thousands of years of human thinking that has mistaken the material world as the underlying reality.

We’re born into all this shine and sizzle constantly feeding our senses and we assume it’s the truest of true.

Many of us have begun to suspect that the blinders and the limits are about to come off humanity, opening a new reality and possibilities we’ve never before considered, even for a moment.

So, when we use affirmations and intention and prayer and meditation to bend matter, we should not be surprised it can. We should not be surprised that the more we practice, the better we get at it.

Perhaps, it’s a kind of homecoming for us. Focused and undistracted by the shiny things around us, we are reestablishing ourselves as the powerful creators we always were.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you awesome.

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.
