Connectedness and Consciousness

No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.

I’ve quoted Einstein here before.  I find him particularly interesting, only because he seems to have a spiritual side as well as a scientific side.  When growing up I always guessed that scientists had no room for the divine.  I think what started to alter that perception was Carl Sagan, especially after reading Contact.  The movie was also fab.  Knowing what I know now specifically about Einstein and Sagan I’ve had to rethink some of my preconceived notions about Science and the Divine.  Perhaps, they CAN walk side by side.

Consciousness?  What does that word mean to you?  To me it is an extremely spiritual word as I know it now.  Here’s yet another link to the Divine and Einstein.  Do you suppose, he was using that word in much the same way it is used today?  If not then why did he choose that word when there are so many others he COULD have used?

Maybe Einstein means our problems need others to help solve them.  The fact that we are all connected can help solve a challenge that arises in one person if we allow others in.  I’m reminded here of The Global Consciousness Project.  This project shows how connected humanity REALLY is.  In order to resolve conflicts, challenges, issues it will take more than one person.  We need to look at all of humanity and see the connectedness we share, the values we share, the sameness in each of us.

We need to stop looking at our differences.
We need to stop seeing our conflicts.

Can you find one positive thing in someone you have a conflict with?
Are you strong enough to approach that person and tell them that positive?

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.
