Blogging at the edge of the Shift... Part X

Perhaps the only limits...
May 11, 2014

Ahh! My tenth blog. I love writing. But not just writing writing but rather putting down on paper in black and white what’s in my inner most self, the fullness of my vocation, my passion, what inspires me to act holistically in such a "materialistically" city… And to be able to express, that which is so hard to articulate to others face to face, in a blog like this is simply amazing… I am truly thank full to be able to blog.

In my previous nine blogs I have attempted to articulate WORLDVIEW and what that means to us humans living today. This is a very very difficult task. It is no exaggeration to say it is akin to explaining water to a fish. The vast majority of humans living today are not aware that they are born into a WORLDVIEW inherited from their parents, peers & society which in turn was inherited from those before them etc… Humanity has to go back as far as the 1500’s before we can see a different WORLDVIEW to the modern scientific rational materialistic one dominant today…

I don’t expect all reading my blogs to “get it” but I hope I have shed some light on this most fundamental of insights, or at least pointed the way for further exploration and reading and in the very least allowed for more questions to be raised on this matter.

Simultaneously I have attempted to highlight the emerging WORLDVIEW, the one that is replacing the dominant paradigm of the last 500 years. One that is diametrically opposed with it’s holistic, intuitive & spiritually scientific essence. A CONSCIOUSNESS WORLDVIEW.

The man who first made me aware of WORLDVIEWS and how humanity has always changed and evolved since the dawn of time, was the late great Willis Harman.
I have quoted him often in my writings and I have dedicated URNA! - You Are Not Alone! to him. His most influential book was a thin book called Global Mind Change written in the late 1980’s and a book where everything explored in it has since come to pass. An amazing feat! Very few books can claim that. I highly recommend you get it and put it on your book shelf even if you are not going to read it. Someday you will or someone dear to you will. I had the great fortune of reading it in 1990 and have read it over many times since.

I will quote an entire paragraph from this book to sum up and bring together my last 10 blogs.

“ We are living thorough one of the most fundamental shifts in history - a change in the actual belief structure of society.
No economic , political or military power can compare with the power of a change of mind.
By deliberately changing their images of reality, people are changing the world. “

&

“Perhaps the only limits to the human mind are those we believe in.”

( Anyone who has received an email from me will know the above quote ;-)

So, my friends to close, all I have to say is that what we must collectively do now is increase the proportion of humans living today who know that they can cause change, that they can change the world. For indeed it is the only thing that ever has.

Until soon

Bobsy
