Bruce brought his incredible energy to this episode in full force!
Please listen to the audio to hear all his brilliance. I made some notes and included them below but they don’t do the interview justice.
We began with Bruce sharing the important bit of scientific research that helped him have his A-ha moment – the moment when he “got” spirituality.
The human body is a biological television set. The body is the television set, but you are the broadcast.
Question: Why have a body and a spirit? Why not just be a spirit? Answer: If you’re just a spirit, what does chocolate taste like?
The body is a device which translates experiences into energy/vibrations and sends them to the brain to perceive.
The body is a virtual reality suit. When “you” step into it, the spirit can see, touch, taste, etc. The spirit can also drive the body – Go left, do this…
A Mars Rover is the equivalent of a human. It has eyes to see, receptors to feel, etc. The guy (“source”) on earth drives it.
The human body is the equivalent of an ‘Earth Rover.’ While we are driving the vehicle around, our senses are sending the vibrations/experiences back to the Source.
When you meditate and feel blissful it’s because on some level you realize and experience that, “I am the driver of this body,” and you sort of get into the mind of the driver.
“Owning the reality of spirituality is the most important thing you can do in your life.” Then you are free to run your vehicle the way you want to instead of being a victim of the program.
A cosmic joke: We have been programmed to believe that if we have a good life we go to heaven. Most people think we die and go to heaven, but we were actually born INTO Heaven.
The spirit can have thoughts, but it can’t taste chocolate or see a sunset.
The Matrix is not science fiction, it’s a documentary. We have been programmed.
The first 7 years of your life is when you were programmed. You learned “the rules” of behavior. Children are virtually in a state of hypnosis and they learn quickly by observing. What they learn gets recorded into their subconscious minds.
95% of your behavior in your life comes from the programs in your subconscious mind. Not from your personal spiritual wishes and desires, they come from the programs you acquired in the first 7 years, which are other people’s programs! We are not living OUR lives.
We are all powerful individuals but we have been programmed to believe that we are frail, vulnerable, shaped by outside forces, victims of life, etc. Our programming makes us look at this world not as a Heaven as it should be, but as a struggle for survival, competition, a rat race…
When you stop running the program you become creative; when you become creative you can achieve your desires.
As you clear away the issues in your life that sabotage you, you’re on the freeway and you can travel to wherever you want to go. But with all your programming and baggage you’re in a traffic jam and it’s difficult to get anywhere.
The conscious mind is connected to your “broadcast,” your spirituality. It’s the latest evolution of your brain (the prefrontal cortex); it’s creative.
Your life is a printout of the programming that’s in your subconscious mind. Everything that you like and comes easily into your life – you have a program that allows that to be there. In contrast, everything that you’re working on, putting a lot of effort into, sweating over it, struggling and working really hard – it’s because you have a program that does not support that.
Victims need rescuers.
Your body can heal yourself better than the Pharmaceutical industry, and your spirituality can heal your life better than anyone else.
Conscious and subconscious learn in different ways!
The conscious mind can hear something or read something and immediately accepts it. It learns quickly and can become super educated.
The subconscious mind learns in two fundamental ways (and one new way):
- In a state of hypnosis information bypassing the conscious mind
- Energy psychology
Frustration = consciously knowing the right information but still doing what you’ve always done (and getting the same results) because your subconscious mind hasn’t changed.
The programs that take away self-love are the most destructive.
