“The optimist sees the rose and not its thorns; the pessimist stares at the thorns, oblivious of the rose.” Kahlil Gibran
Someone once told me that he believed there were two kinds of people in the world: those who see the world as dangerous and those who see the world as a safe place. And science seems to be backing him up!
In “Biology of Perception,” Dr. Bruce Lipton, a cellular biologist and author of The Biology of Belief, uses hard scientific facts and reasoning to explain his theory on how our own personal perception controls our entire lives. How we see the world affects us on the most basic cellular level, up to its expression in our behaviour, and actually selects which genes to turn on or if it can’t find the right gene to suit the ‘environment’, can even rewrite our genes!
Most importantly, though, Dr. Lipton convincingly argues how we all have the power to alter our perception and therefore our lives. Even though his lecture is packed-full of science, Dr. Lipton is an excellent, highly energetic teacher who simplifies the material. The power gained from the insight and knowledge is well-worth the hour investment.
See the opening clip above.
For those who do not have the time, I don’t want you to leave empty-handed!
Through scientific fact and deduction, Dr. Lipton proves we are binary systems – just like computers! He explains the science and concludes:
- Perception ‘controls’ behaviour.
- Perception ‘controls’ genes.
- Perception ‘rewrites’ genes.
Dr. Lipton says we all view the world through filters and that our perception is actually our interpretation of reality. Our filters are made up of our beliefs, and our beliefs are created by our personal experiences. Often they are (knowingly and unknowingly) taught to us by parents, teachers, siblings and peers.
Many of our beliefs today are actually the opinions of others that we have accepted as truth. The clincher is that many of these beliefs are wrong and create the reoccurring problems we experience in our lives today. The irony is that many of our beliefs were created at an early age when we didn’t know better.
It’s difficult to break our habits and change unwanted behaviour now because the beliefs that control them are stored in our subconscious. Because the conscious mind and subconscious minds are so different, they can contradict one another! That’s why you can say you’ll stop smoking or start your diet tomorrow but never do.
But how do we identify which beliefs are causing problems and then how do we reprogram our brains for different, more constructive beliefs? Ah, well, that’s the second half of the DVD. In “Psychology of Change,” Rob Williams explains how perception can ‘rewrite’ behaviour, introduces his tool for lasting change, PSYCH-K, and describes how it works.
