I have met many people who are convinced they are what they are not. And when you hold an idea in your mind long enough, it becomes part of your reality.
The problem is, that when you are holding in your mind the wrong concept, then the outside world will cause you more harm than good.
For instance, I know a friend whose parents told him all the time he was not good at math. They repeated him all the time he was a failure in math and other sciences. Fortunately for him and for many of us, he ended up listening to his inner voice that always told him he really liked math and he ended up being a wonderful math teacher who loves spreading his knowledge to his students and has been teaching several generations the magic of math.

Do you remember that time when you thought everything was lost and there was not possible solution for that problem?
When you were a child, there were times when things appear impossible to accomplish, things like holding your spoon properly, reaching for a toy in a tall drawer, solving an addition on the blackboard while all classmates were watching you, and so forth.
Probably there were times when you felt hesitant to tell your parents you had broken their favourite vase by accident while playing with your ball inside your home. You just could not think of a way out of that situation, right?
As you advanced in your life, the tests became more challenging and the situations seemed harder. But, when you looked back, you could see that you were always able to find a solution for every tribulation you found in your way, right? Continue reading →
In a time of fast changes in technology, politics, society, ideologies and so on and so forth, being static seems to be “out of fashion”.
New discoveries in science appear and our ideas and old prejudices must change as well. Quantum physics is really weird and although it seems it cannot affect your “reality” directly, some of its effects are beginning to be understood nowadays. We are changing the way we see our universe and there will be radical changes in our mentalities and dogmas in science and religion. Yes, you have read well, there are dogmas in science too, believe it or not. But we´ll talk about it some other time. There are many stubborn “scientists” out there who prefer to look to the other side when a new idea appears, since it is much more comfortable to remain believing in the old concepts than work on understanding and testing the new ones.

I just received a copy of a very interesting study made by three Universities in the United Kingdom on colour perception.
They found a tribe in Africa with a language limited to three words to describe colours. One word for the dark colours, one for middle range colours and one for very light colours.
To make a long a story short, in one of these studies, they showed different illustrations with different shades of the same colour to members of that tribe and they immediately identified the two shades that had a slight difference. But, when they showed the same illustration to westerners, who did not have different words to define those shades of green, they could not find the difference or took a long time to notice it. They haven´t got different words to describe those colours, therefore those westerners couldn’t find the difference so easily.
But when the scientist showed an illustration with six green squares and one blue square, westerners immediately pointed at the blue square, but people from that tribe couldn’t find it. They have the same word to describe both colours. For them the concept was the same and as colours are concepts we create in our minds, they could not find the difference. Continue reading →
With Quantum mechanics our common logic does not work, it doesn’t matter how much we try to make sense of it, it is amazing but it´s real.
More and more universities around the world are working on different theories and experiments to try to understand the bases of quantum world. And the conclusions, or at least the results of those experiments are totally mind blowing. That is why Niels Bohr said that if you read an hour about Quantum Physics and your head doesn’t hurt, you didn’t understand anything. Continue reading →
I just received an email from a friend in Japan. She shares with me some of her hopes and fears and I was surprised to see how “similar” our dreams and problems were.
But why was I so surprised? I have been there and when I was in Japan, and actually after getting to know the people and customs there I was “accepted” in the community. To me they were like anyone else and I think I was taken as one more in the bunch.
So where did I begin to think they could feel or experience life in a different way than I do?
Being now on the other side of the planet, when I hear about Japan is like listening from a different world. But that is only an error in my perspective.
During my years into the world of investigation of paranormal and UFO phenomena I had to learn the hard way to be sceptic first.
When you start investigating or getting interested in those subjects you begin by believing everything you find on your way, then you discover some cases that were prefabricated in order to fool you, then you meet people who are into those fields to have some money and/ or fame and finally you learn to discern between the unexplainable cases and the ones which are easily explained. After all that you start to gather information but without the visceral attitude. Continue reading →
Get the real formula for success, this is the true religion, this is the real thing, we’ll get you the only true medicine, this is the real story, do you promise to tell nothing but the truth?
Truth is such a “commercial” term nowadays. It is used, changed, hid, transformed, translated and interpreted in so many different ways that it is so difficult to know the difference. Continue reading →
Many years ago, reading an old Tibetan document used to teach little Chelas (little boys from age 7 who study in Buddhist monasteries, the students of a Guru o Geshe) I was surprised to read that they believed, 5000 years ago, that our consciousness created our world.
Listening to a lecture at Chapman University on the last advancements in Quantum theory, I was listening to the same concepts but with different terms.
We are re-discovering knowledge that has long existed. “There is nothing new under the Sun” Ecclesiastes 1:9.Continue reading →
