Have you seen Morgan Freeman's Through the Wormhole Series? Well, recently he hosted a show about the mysteries of the subconscious. You can check out a short clip here: https://science.discovery.com/videos/through-the-wormhole-mysteries-of-the-subconscious/.
Basically, this clip shows us that our minds can be fooled into reacting to a simulated event. In other words, whatever our minds believe to be true IS true for us. You will see this poor guy flinching when a knife is placed near his simulated legs even though he's been told those are not actually his legs (they're from a mannequin).
So what does this mean for you? Whatever you choose to believe is true for you. Don't believe me? Watch the clip a few times. And when you're done pondering on that, think about the fact that whatever you believe about your LIFE is true for you as well. A great deal of what we believe about life is completely subjective (what you choose to believe about it). Is it enough to make you change the way you think today?
Think about it...
