Saying Goodbye to Research

My early college training was as a scientist. I have been a lifelong student of learning. I have placed tremendous value on research and fact-finding.

Yet today I am saying goodbye to the preciousness of research in my life. I see that it can actually weigh me down, in the form of baggage I’ve been carrying around. I think it derived from the fear response I had when I explored new thoughts out loud and someone else would yell, “Prove it!” Off I would go, responding to orders, and creating a false sense of satisfaction and comfort from being able to “prove it.”

Facts are so incredibly fast-moving and fluid today. Your known world is very dependent on where and how you travel. Each week literally I am contacted by friends and clients who rejected my facts and advice years ago, only to say, “I am ready now” or “I guess you were right.” This is not about me being superior – it is merely that I am an extreme early adopter. And this applies to so many areas of my life, but especially in my business and in my personal approach to spirituality.

There is plenty of research out there now anyway, that if someone else wants it, they can find it. I no longer have to be the provider, unless of course I am interested. Being interested in something is – as you know once I write this – a completely different energy than research as a defensive position, a fight or flight response.

I am not only allowed but now encourage myself to move forward based on my understanding of the energy, of the vibration, without the need for supporting data. Once you can prove something, it is already a known entity anyway by those who have chosen the path of direct experience. I think you see this often in business – those who can conceive of a solution before some even realize they have a problem! It is that inner knowing combined with a willingness to follow one’s desires, proof can come later if necessary.

I say goodbye to this baggage and choose to swim au naturel in the sea of the Divine. Want to join me?

  1. I don’t know how you do it. I’m still on the other end of things. I would categorize myself as open-minded but skeptical.

  2. Dave,

    Thank you for stopping by.

    I “do it” by having direct experience. That way I don’t have to worry about convincing others or proving anything. The author of the video you posted makes a number of good points, though by his very energy and tone, run through my experience, to me is saying if we don’t agree with him, we are wrong. By any chance could you feel that in his presentation? He prefers logic and tangible evidence to direct experience. I prefer direct vibrational experience. Both are conscious choices.

    “Demanding valid evidence helps us distinguish true claims from false ones” assumes there is an absolute reality that is shared by all. I heartily disagree with this and can provide plenty of evidence for it! When it is 69 degrees here in Hawaii (a “verified” fact by thermometers) many experience it as genuinely “cold” while others find it quite perfectly warm. I much more prefer and believe that perfectly reasonable people disagree about everything.

    There are no problems until one is trying to convert another. Hence I stay away from that and instead simply share my experiences in case they are useful to others!

    Aloha,
    Rox
