In this article, I’m going to briefly write about the fear that society has had over time and how people today are afraid to share information without feeling the need of being safe. It is visible that this belief system has stemmed back for thousands of years.
In the days of Aristarchus (310BC – 230BCE) the solar system was considered to be the whole of the known universe and the rest of the planets revolved around the Earth.
In truth, Amy has recently said to me that this was part of my largest life lesson, the discovery of my authentic self. It has in fact been a very large lesson and soon the cords that are pertaining to this lesson will be disintegrated.
This article came about when writing a business proposal and trying to talk about ‘Threats’ to the business and what the contingencies are. I wrote that there is no contingency required for the threat of ‘Closed Mindedness, ignorance or the ego mindset’ of others as history is filled with non-believers or that people believe that their truth is the superior truth. Which we can learn a lot about the experiences with Galileo Galilei being forced to discredit his own theories and findings.
In fact, these disbelievers are everywhere and not just in the fields of what they now call ‘New Age’ as the same happened in the predictions of technology. Here are a few…
“I think there is a world market for maybe five computers.” – Thomas Watson, president of IBM, 1943
“Television won’t be able to hold on to any market it captures after the first six months. People will soon get tired of staring at a plywood box every night.” – Darryl Zanuck, executive at 20th Century Fox, 1946
“There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home.” – Ken Olsen, founder of Digital Equipment Corporation, 1977
So as can be seen, there are so many non-believers out there that the world will always change, the information will always come through, technology will always evolve and the belief that it will never happen or that something is crazy is actually not true at all. What it is actually occurring is that when we face someone’s mind that is not so open, there will be some form of resistance to the concept or idea. Thus, they will put it down or question the concept. This is what I refer to as ‘Fear’ but it is also the element of the ego within the human mindset.
Even in my own communications, people tell me all sorts of weird and wonderful things because they know that I will believe them. I’ll encourage them to look further into it, this is what I found when I had my own recent experience which I published not so long ago.
So do we need to have contingency for non-believers, not really. They are a threat to the sharing of the knowledge but do we not have other sports-fans putting other teams down because theirs is far superior?
The end result: Share away, share your experiences!
