Someone wrote this and posted it online; I found it very helpful in my awakening process!:
“No problem can be solved from the same consciousness that created it. We must learn to see the world anew.” – Albert Einstein. A Nobel Prize winner, Albert Einstein’s scientific theories transformed the world’s understanding of the universe and its workings. No doubt these words come from Einstein’s personal experience and helped him to explore both science and life itself. He offered us many examples of what can be learned by looking deeply into nature to reach a deeper understanding of all life and by following our ideas to their logical conclusions in our minds before acting upon them in the world.
When we apply the act of expanding consciousness to our lives, we can see that we cannot create abundance by staying in a consciousness of poverty, nor can we gain a sense of power in our lives while identifying ourselves or acting as a victim. Situations precipitated from anger or fear can have little chance of reaching a state of peace and trust unless those involved can conceive of that possibility and act upon it. WE NEED TO STEP OUTSIDE OF OUR LIMITED UNDERSTANDING IN ORDER TO SEEK A BIGGER PICTURE. One way to do this is to shift our perspective to see the situation from another’s point of view and ideally the perspective of all others involved. Even if we can not truly know another’s motives, by imagining what they might be, we open ourselves up to numerous possibilities and an expanded vision. This alone can shift our feelings of anger to compassion and the desire for a positive solution.
