4 States of Mind

There are 4 states of matter:

  1. Solid
  2. Liquid
  3. Gas
  4. Plasma

If you were H2O and you were moving very slow, you would be called “ice”. If you were moving fast, you would be called “water”. If you were moving even faster, you would be called “vapor”. If you were moving even faster, you would be called “ionized”. Temperature is a measure of speed (kinetic energy).

“What we think determines what happens to us, so if we want to change our lives, we need to stretch our minds.” Wayne Dyer

You are always in motion (even when you sleep). If your mind is moving very slowly, you are called “mindless”. If your mind is moving fast, you are called “mindful”. If your mind is moving even faster, you are called “intelligent”; even faster, “wise”.

  1. Mindless
  2. Mindful
  3. Intelligent
  4. Wise

Everything you sense with your 5 senses is called “matter”. Matter makes up less than 4% of the Universe. 96% of the known Universe is made of dark energy and dark matter. Everything you think and feel is called your “mind”. Your Mind thinks and feels less than 4% of the human interactions you really experience. 96% of what you really experience is blocked from you deliberately and with great purpose by your BRAIN.

See everything

You have a BRAIN FILTER. It works all the time without your permission. Your brain filter is required to sustain life. If your brain filter breaks or malfunctions, so do YOU. If your brain filter is significantly altered (e.g. a stroke), so are YOU.  If you alter your brain filter deliberately you are called “liberated”.

You cannot change your filter BUT you can train it. A well-trained brain filter moves very fast. It is hot to the touch.

See everything. Touch everything. Hear everything. Taste everything. Smell everything. Feel everything. Thirst for everything. Balance everything.

Step 1: Identify your feedback loop.

Step 2: Assess your feedback loop.
