Bill Harris: Reality’s Not What You Think It Is
Bill Harris is the founder of Centerpointe and the maker of Holosync, a technological meditation system that has had a profound effect on my life.
He, above anyone else in my life, showed me how my mind worked, how groups of people interact, and what our world really is.
He also showed me what I really am (any of us for that matter) and what the evolutionary stages are that we all inhabit at various points in our lives.
So I’ve attempted to stick to the most relevant points in relation to why you’re here now:
- What you think of as “you” is really just a construct, not real, and easily changeable
- Reality is subjective, an opinion we all have that is unique to each of us
- Our adult actions are driven by experiences we had as children, but we are no longer aware of this fact
- To become “aware” is the secret to life
- Life is a game and we all have our part to play, just like an actor, but we are not that part
- Heal your mind and your body will follow
- Attachment to things being the way they are is the root of all pain – focus on letting go
Depending on where you’re at in your evolutionary understanding of yourself, some or all of this might seem bizarre.
If any of this is hard to swallow, just know that my comprehension of these things has had a measurable effect on my life, which translated into big changes in how I shared my message and went about building business.
And I’m still learning from Bill.
You are not you
You are a map, an idea of yourself based upon what you’ve been taught, what you’ve survived, and what you desire to gain from this life.
To put it into more technical terms, you are an interface that your conscious mind has developed in order to stay safe in the world as you believe it to be.
This is fantastic news!
It’s fantastic because if you are not satisfied with the version of you that you are now, you can change it out for a better version that takes you where your subconscious mind knows you truly belong.
I share this in order to help you begin to look closer at why you’re on my site and why you’ve chosen to look deeper into sharing your message.
Your ability to truly understand your motives for wanting my help, directly correlates to your ability to be authentic.
In order to know those motives, you must understand why you are as you are, and for most of us we don’t even know.
Or we make assumptions that have been formed by the same person who doesn’t truly know why. We kid ourselves. It’s how we stay safe.
This is also why witnesses at an accident will each have a slightly or majorly different version of what they think happened.
Cops know this and it’s why they interview as many witnesses as possible. Then they decipher what they feel is the truth from there.
Of course, their interface is screwing with this result too, but let’s keep this simple.
We see the world around us based upon this map of ourselves, which we’ve created
Change how you are and who you think yourself to be and the world magically changes around you.
When I first actively pursued this work, I was stunned how life started to be unfamiliar but in a good way. I started to see how I was routinely shooting myself in the foot.
I began to change how I did things. As a result, my life began to improve. Over time, my mission got bigger as did my self confidence. I want this for you, too.
All of our actions are rooted in a need to survive traumas we endured as children
And we do this on autopilot. Our formative years have had more of an impact on our actions than we know. As you build your business, share your story, and help your people just be aware of why you may be doing this.
Staying aware will enable you to access the deep parts of your mind that have your best answers to your most pressing questions just waiting for you.
Becoming aware is a deep topic – too deep for this post. It involves becoming a witness to yourself. You need to develop the ability to watch yourself go through your day, as if viewing a movie. Don’t judge. Just watch.
Did your decisions for the day help you achieve your deepest desires and needs? If not, don’t kick yourself. Just change how you make your decisions and take another whack at it.
One area that you’ll find this witnessing to be useful is in how you care for your mind. By caring for your mind better, you’ll find that many bodily pains and illnesses will vanish. This makes your mission easier to accomplish.
The brain and body are one, not two separate pieces as psychiatrists often seem to think. They’re literally inseparable. Take care of your head and watch what other pain dissolves. Then see how much work you get done and in a much more positive mood!
Life is a like a game or play – we’re performers
In a play, you have a part. You pretend to be someone. When the play is over, you are no longer that person. Well, that is the reality behind your entire life.
It goes back to that interface. Based on the interface you’ve designed (your part) you interact with the world. You’re being the “you” you think yourself to be.
But remember what I said above. This can be changed.
Just know that if the part you’re playing in this game is not speaking to the deepest parts of you, then change your part.
Life being a game does not mean it’s fun.
It just means it’s subjective and alterable.
Think of the biker who one day becomes a priest. Think of the office worker who one day becomes a mixed martial arts fighter.
Think of anyone who was something totally different some time ago compared to what they are now. Those people have changed the part they play in the game.
It can also be little subtle changes.
You stop being rude. You pay more attention when others speak. You quit telling the same jokes. You change your favorite brand of anything for a brand that serves you better.
You stop living your life based on conclusions whose formation you no longer remember
If you ever stopped for a moment to really inspect why you do anything the way you do it, you might be surprised to learn that you no longer agree with yourself on that topic.
It’s amusing and freeing. It’s often a major relief that leads to a big part of your life improving.
Staying aware of this fact will help you adapt as you develop your dream, your plan, your mission, your business. Staying aware of this fact will help you discover what you should truly be doing with your time, in order to get the most return on its investment.
Lastly, know that all pain is derived from your attachment to something being the way it used to be and your resistance to the fact that it’s no longer the same. All pain. This is a fact that is very hard to comprehend at first.
Yes, even cancer fits into this description. You’ve probably heard of cancer patients who were in massive pain until the day came when they accepted their fate, then they were filled with a bliss that was palpable to everyone in the room.
My rather heavy metaphor directly correlates to your being able to know when to say “when” on a plan or idea that is not going where you’d like it to. You simply need to know when to let go. And in doing so, you move forward.
I won’t go deeper here but Bill is waiting over on Centerpointe to explain this much better than I can.
