John Hagelin on consciousness part one

John Hagelin talks about the nature of consciousness. The idea that we create our reality can seem crazy and far fetched. When we discover all of the filters that stand between us and the world in which we live, not only is it something that we can more easily understand, but it becomes something we can change. We literally do not see the world as it is. We filter our world through our beliefs, memories, expectations and cultural norms. As one of my favourite writers, Anais Nin, says, we see the world as we are. When we get curious about what lies beyond the limits of our current perception, we open ourselves up to a whole new universe. One which I believe is far more amazing and abundant than our minds can sometimes grasp.
