What We Condition Ourselves to Think

wayne-dyer-weekly

I know, for my readers (or anyone just reaching out via the World Wide Web), you’ve seen the philosophies and teachings that I’ve shared in the form of memes on Facebook, official web sites, and even on Pinterest and other social networks. Memes are a great way to convey positive thinking and creativity.

In this ever changing world full of technological advances, we relate to the visual and are often exposed to content and ideas so quickly that we barely have time to acknowledge its contact with our souls and minds. Before we know it, we’ve exposed ourselves to a multitude of ideals that subconsciously affect our lives and our ways of being that may not have necessarily been welcome.

Similar to how the World Wide Web has become our source for information, and utilizes resources like memes, which are a media used to spread information to individuals through the internet, our bodies are conditioned to have certain beliefs based on the memes in which our natural existence exposes us to. Physical limitations being restricted by perceived ideas that “you can’t.”

You can’t afford that. You can’t go there. You can’t do that. You can’t get better. You can’t be successful.

As I shared in my book, Excuses Begone!: How to Change Lifelong, Self-Defeating Thinking Habits, the word meme derives from the concept of memetics, which deals with the mind in relation to its relationship with the body. While genetics is the gene that creates the basic blueprint for the body, memetics is the meme that shares no physical properties, yet exists as a thought or belief or attitude in your mind that can spread to and from other people’s minds. Richard Dawkins, Oxford Biologist, explained in his book, The Selfish Gene, that memetics originates from the word mimic, meaning to observe and copy behavior. This behavior observed is passed onto others as the mimicking process goes on. The key point is transferring an idea, attitude or belief mentally. These ideas are not necessarily good or bad. They simply spread easily throughout the population.

From birth and social conditioning we’ve all become programmed with an endless array of memes that act as a virus to our minds, as Richard Brodie described in his book Virus of the Mind, which happens through mimicking and imitating these thoughts that subtly influence behavior. This is one of the ways that you establish a huge category of excuses that keep you in a rut. Justifying life’s short comings or preventing you from doing things that may further your true life’s purpose.

You are a host for countless memes. They are the entrenched thoughts of your countless characteristics that make your personality. You’ve spent years adhering and replicating these ideas that have been traveling from one mind to another until they have spread enough to be accepted by the majority and become thought of as social norms that are most often accepted in today’s society. We all become carriers of these viruses because the embedded idea is easy and appears as though they protect us from harm. Realistically, they restrict our level of creative awareness and discourage independent thought. The soul does not like when you get fenced in; when it is told what to do; when it is told that it has limitations; when it is told that it can’t. Human beings can absolutely work inwardly to nourish the spirit and provide the elements that they need to be fruitful. Limiting what can be controlled of negative memes and nurturing the creative awareness by embodying and reacting to life with positive memes has the power to strengthen the soul, bring us closer to happiness, to God, and to improve on the basic blueprint of our existence.

Remember that you choose to decide what you take away as your design to life. Ultimately, you decide what influences you and how you accept the memes that you encounter and spread to others.

Namaste,
