Programming And Affirmations

by Jonathan M. King.

Receiving real new thoughts is uncomfortable to the “false self” or “ego” which is why each step towards awakening from the ego is difficult to own, it is paradoxical by nature. Think about new thought, the discomfort is the reason we can’t spontaneously play guitar without ever having touched one. Yes truly, If you had all the theoretical info in your head why shouldn’t you be able to just play guitar? Because these things are of new thinking, new movement and new sensation, this makes them uncomfortable, the unknown!! So we have to plod along and make them a part of our motorique, intellect and eventually our emotional “sections”. We have to shed the blood sweat and tears to allow ourselves to own it, plus there’s a lot of neural junk in there getting in the way:

“Oh I don’t know I’ll never play guitar, it’s just too hard and I am not good enough”

Or:

“maybe I am just not talented in that way!”

The discomfort is the reason we can’t drop addictions without first having to “break the habit”. The very definition of the word habit is:

routines of behavior that are repeated regularly and tend to occur subconsciously.

So you see it works both ways, 1 when we are trying to create “new habits” and 2 when we are trying to break old ones. This would indicate that the average human is much more at ease within the parameters of his comfort blanket. One of the main targets of my book Aquarius Agenda is to change the way our conscious and our subconscious relate to each other. Remember the kid Linus in the Charlie Brown cartoon who wouldn’t go anywhere without that old flea- bitten rag of a blanket? There is a name for this uncomfortableness caused by new thought, it’s called cognitive dissonance which literally means uneasiness caused by moving outside the box of our comfort zones.

So how much thinking do we actually do and how much of what we call thinking is nothing more than replaying the tape of experiences past and relying on things that we “know” to be true? Here’s a secret, most humans once they are above the age of 6 almost never experience new thinking, they experience learning and responding to stimulus and once this has become the status quo they have become a programmed machine or zombie, just another brick in the wall. Getting better at a hobby is not new thought although it hints at it, which is one of the reasons we have them. What is “learning” if not simply repeating something someone has told you? Even the way we respond to new stimuli is dictated by our past programming which means we are not responding out of presence but out of past.

I propose the only way in which we can have new thought and experience life as it truly is, is to leave what we think we know behind and shed our old self as a snake sheds it’s skin. If we live our lives any other way are we not merely blundering through life without purpose and meaning? Sure you may say:

“But I have a career and a goal and a degree and I am smarter than anyone I know.”

Or you might say:

“Who does this guy think he is, I know what I am doing with my life who is he to tell me right from wrong?”

If you have reacted in the manner above re-read the first part of this forward and contemplate your response out of a space of non- programming or presence without judgment. The truth is someone responding with new-thought or thought without baggage, would not react in the above manner. Think how often this happens in a day.

Old thinking got us where we are, new thinking will get us out, along with everything else that exists within our ozone layer. We are on the cusp of accelerated evolution as a species, indeed we are about to be faced with a choice, evolve or suffer the very dire consequences.
