Breaking the habit of being mySELF???
What does that even mean?
I actually really like the way that statement is put, because it insinuates that who we are, or rather who we THINK we are, could very well just be a construct in our minds.
A construct, that according to Dr. Dispenza in this fascinating and in my opinion very important book, can very much be changed so you can be whoever and do whatever you’d like in life!
So what IS breaking the habit of being yourself?
Let’s take a look.
Who You Are, is NOT Who You Think You Are
Remember when your parents or someone in a position of authority said to you, “who do you think you are?” when you were growing up?
I used to get that question a lot from various adults, or at least hear it being asked to other kids.
And I don’t know about you, or those other kids who got the question, but I always thought that question itself was fascinating.
Because of course there IS the question of who am I and that is a deep question in and of itself.
But somehow my parents and many other authority figures figured out a way to take that deep philosophical question to the next level: who do I THINK I am?
Who do I think I am?
The question basically says, there is who you are, who you REALLY are, and then there’s who you THINK you are.
Whoa Mom and Dad.
So yeah, who am I, and who do I think I am?
Who are you, and who do you think YOU are?
Well, believe it or not it was this kind of thinking that drove me most of my life, and I did indeed come across many different theories as far as who I actually was.
And one thing I learned beyond any shadow of a doubt is that there is indeed a personal self, sort of an ego identity, which is molded and shaped by the people and environment we are in growing up.
And then there is who or rather WHAT we really are, that is sort of beyond all of that altogether.
In other words, there is who we REALLY are, AND who we think we are.
Interestingly enough, all those enlightened souls I’ve come across in my life have all said that enlightenment is simply the realization of who you really are.
Your TRUE self.
SO, with that idea in mind, it stands to reason that our goal in life is to discover who we really are, vs. who we think we are i.e. our false or illusory self.
And one of the nice things about being alive in this current day and age (for those reading this in the future it is currently the year 2020) is that we can actually tap into science to help us find out who we are vs. who we think we are.
Who You Think You Are is Merely a Concept in the Mind
So our personality, what’s called the personal self, is simply a conglomeration, a network of neural pathways in the brain that have been structured in a particular way to make YOU who you are, or rather who you THINK you are.
You know, your likes, your dislikes, your general personality.
How you were raised, the environment you grew up in, what you watched on tv, music, movies, people you went to school with….ALL of it helped to shape the construct of your personal ego identity.
And it is this personal ego identity that we are identified with as far as who we are goes.
In fact if someone asked us the question, who are you, you’d draw from the construct of ‘you’ in your brain.
The question is, is this construct who you really are?
I mean, if it IS just a construct in the mind, and if this construct can be changed, then am I really me?
And who is the one who is identified with the construct of neural pathways in the brain that is ‘me’ in the first place?
Another important question is: is my life and my experiences in life in anyway connected to the neural pathways and conditioning in my brain?
If you were to ask an ancient yogi or mystic, they’d say absolutely.
The world you see around you is simply a projection of who you are, or rather who you THINK you are.
And furthermore, who you really are is not in your brain at all anyway!
If you asked a modern day neuro-scientist or quantum physicist, specifically someone like Dr. Joe Dispenza who authored this fascinating book, he would say that who you think you are is simply a collection of neural pathways linked in the brain.
And this includes your likes, your dislikes, your habits, addictions, the way you see the world around you, your life, etc.
BUT, there is good news that Dr. Dispenza has for us: ALL of this CAN be CHANGED.
Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself
In his amazing book, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself, Dr. Joe Dispenza draws on his many decades of experience in both the areas of science as well as spirituality and mysticism, to show us that who we think we are is NOT who we think we are, AND it can be changed.
In fact, these neural pathways can be changed and reconditioned to BE anything you’d like them to be.
You see as it turns out the brain actually has a certain plasticity to it, which means that whatever you’ve been conditioned with in your brain’s neural pathways….whatever habits you have beliefs etc, it can all be changed.
Not only that, but with the advances in our understanding of things like quantum physics as well as neuroscience, we are beginning to create a bridge between the world of the seen and the world of the unseen.
We are beginning to realize that our minds very much do have LIMITLESS potential.
If all it takes is focus and conditioning, then all you’ve got to do is focus and condition yourself to however you’d like to be and that is who you will ‘become’ and the reality that you’d like to experience will follow.
All we’ve got to do is break the HABIT of being who are have been conditioned to be, and we can be and do whoever and whatever we want.
Including be our TRUE selves and experience ALL of reality.
Dr. Joe Dispenza’s work shows us a way and gives us some powerful tools in order to be able to do this.
Who and What You REALLY Are is Beyond ALL Concepts
While Dr. Dispenza’s work will show you scientifically and practically HOW who you think you are is merely a concept in your brain, as well as how to change it, the truth is what you REALLY are is beyond all concepts altogether.
In quantum physics there is something called ‘the observer’, which is the one observing everything in our lives.
In quantum physics this refers to the one’s observing the experiments being conducted i.e. the physicists and the role their observation takes on the experiment itself.
That’s right, it turns out there is no real way to take ourselves OUT of the equation when it comes to the world around us and what’s going on.
This ‘observer’ is kind of like what we’d call the soul.
It is experiencing this particular reality right now, and it IS who and what you REALLY are.
But at the same time it is not any of the things it’s observing.
It’s like we’re in a movie or a video game or something, and the observer (our true self) is watching and experiencing all this through you.
Sometimes this observer self becomes entangled and sort of addicted to certain experiences, people places times events, and it gets sort of ‘stuck’ here in this world.
The mystics of old specialize in teaching you how to transcend all this all together and to find your true bliss in your true self, or rather free the observer.
But for those who aren’t ready for such lofty goals, people like Dr. Joe Dispenza offer clear, practical, scientifically backed insights into how YOU can start to take hold of your own brain and mind.
Dr. Dispenza’s tools help one to clear out any habits or constructs in their brain that might be limiting them in some way, and to create all new neural pathways in the brain so that you can CHANGE your experience of your life to whatever you’d like it to be.
Wrapping it Up
So to bring it all together:
- Who we think we are is simply a construct of neural pathways in the brain
- Who we REALLY are is beyond these neural pathways and beliefs altogether
- To find real freedom and joy in your life is to be able to take your mind back and find your true self
- Dr. Joe Dispenza’s work can help to light the way to your freedom
This book is absolutely fantastic and I couldn’t recommend it more to anyone who is looking to change their lives in a permanent way.
Dr. Dispenza’s provides groundbreaking insights as well as practical tools that you can use to learn more about how your brain operates and how to take control of it so you can create your life on your terms and find the inner freedom and joy you’ve always been looking for.
So if you’re stuck in your life in some way shape or form or if things just aren’t working out or the way you’d like them to be, do yourself a favor and check out this amazing book on how you can master your mind and in so doing master your life.
