Consciousness, in essence, means ‘being aware.’
One of the most powerful things you can do for yourself is constantly become more aware – to know what you didn’t know you didn’t know.
When it comes to ‘good’ or ‘bad’, there is no such thing. It’s all a matter of perception/ perspective.
And perception and perspective are simply awareness!
Dr John Demartini’s 7 Levels Of Consciousness chart is a great visual explanation of this.
It’s our perceptions that determine whether we live in a beautiful state or a suffering state.
Let’s face it, we want to live in the former and that is all down to a matter of perception or perspective.
It’s your perception ratio that will determine whether you deem something as good or bad.
If you have a perception ratio that is 2 ‘good’ for every 1 ‘bad’ (2:1), up to 7 ‘good’ things for every 1 ‘bad (7:1) you’ll have a form of infatuation.
You’ll perceive that you are going to gain more benefits by achieving the desire.
The downside to this is you’ll live in a state of suffering whilst you don’t have it or should it be taken away from you.
On the contrary…
If you have a perception ratio that is 2 ‘bad’ for every 1 ‘good’ (2:1) or up to 7 ‘bad’ things for every 1 ‘good’ (7:1) you’ll have a form of resentment.
As a rule of thumb, if you have a perception ratio of 7:1 either way or more you’ll require the assistance of a coach to break the perception as it is so strong.
Whilst both of these perceptions are ‘reality’ for the person they are not ‘actuality’.
‘Actuality’ is to see both sides as equal due to the universal law of oneness.
If you have a perception ratio that is 1:1 as in you can see 1 ‘good’ for every 1 ‘bad’ you will see things for what they really are, in balance – not a lopsided perspective.
This will result in you having no emotional charge which means you’ll have no guilt or anxiety and therefore can be truly present in a state of gratitude.
How do you do this?
If you want to break a ‘good’ to ‘bad’ ratio you look for the drawbacks, primary, secondary and tertiary drawbacks.
If you want to break a ‘bad’ to ‘good’ ratio, you look for the drawbacks, primary, secondary and tertiary benefits.
You look for these in your health and fitness, family life, relationship, social life, attitude, career/business, financially and personal growth. You can also look for them in your highest means values too.
I highly recommend you give it a go yourself.
Until next time… make it happen. 👊🏻🎯
PS As a little side lesson the ‘Copus Callosum’ part of the brain originally means ‘human tough’.
It connects the left side of the brain to the right side. The connection allows information to pass between the two halves.
In essence by having a balanced (1:1) perception you are creating a balance on both sides – you are using the Copus Callosum to connect the ‘good’ to ‘bad’ in the same away it connects the right and left side of the brain.
If you harness this process you will be unbreakable (a tough human) as you will be able to balance out any situation and therefore live in a state of gratitude.
