Greg Braden, a spiritual teacher of some significance, uses science to explain in easy to understand terms the connection between our feelings and the world.
Science has traditionally told us that human feeling can only effect a person physically. In the past, there was even some debate on how much feelings do effect our health.
Today we know that our feelings can contribute tremendously to our health or our ill health. Today we also know, thanks to quantum scientific research, that the physical world is connected to consciousness.
We are literally the universe and not in any way separate from it. We must start seeing our lives in terms of the whole world and the whole of life. Once we start to see how intimately our feelings are connected to everything else, we can begin to embrace our own power.
But this power comes with a great deal of responsibility. When we have grasped the truth of our being, then we understand that we are responsible for the life of the world.
As Cain asked in the Old Testament Garden of Eden Story, "am I my brother's keeper?"
The answer is that we are our brothers keeper. Our brother is all the life of the planet. We are all responsible for each other.
The good news is that once we start to see this truth then we start to feel better about ourselves and our lives. Thus as we raise our feelings, our very being, then we can have profound effects on the rest of life, as Greg Braden explains below.
