We only have to look at evidence of what's happening in the world in order to validate that.
So what does that mean?
That means that when you're awake, what I call walking awake, rather than sleeping awake. When you're walking awake, you have the ability at any particular point to grab your compass needle and change its direction consciously.
If you're feeling down, you can get up, snap out of it, go for a walk, watch a funny movie.
There are conscious choices that you can make in the moment.
However, that's only 5% of the time, generally speaking, of our lives.
The rest we are unconsciously sleeping awake, which means we take our hands off the compass needle and as soon as we do that it will automatically drift back to its conditioned Magnetic North, which for most people is negative. So that's the society that we live in.
That's the world that we live in. What most people don't do, is they don't then say, "Okay, if my default magnetic North happens to be more negative than positive at the moment due to the environmental conditions, not my own personal fault. How do I change that?"
Remember questions are the steering wheel of the mind, so ask a better question, get a better answer.
"How do I change my default Magnetic North of the compass needle of my mind to be more positive than negative?", is a great question to ask and I'm happy to answer it for you.
