PANDORA’S BOX: From Boxed In, To Empowered Liberation
Media headlines seem to be an endless yield of stories about people behaving badly. The two most recent are the Facebook Whistleblower and Pandora Papers banners. In summary, the Facebook whistleblower laments, “Facebook harms children, sows division and undermines democracy in pursuit of breakneck growth and "astronomical profits." And, the Pandora papers “reveal the inner workings of what is a shadow financial world, providing a rare window into the hidden operations of a global offshore economy that enables some of the world’s richest people to hide their wealth and in some cases pay little or no tax.” We face an unprecedented opportunity to shift the tide, to stem the flow of gracelessness.
These two incidents are just the latest in an increasingly long list of behavior lacking integrity and grace (Generosity of spirit, Respect for self and others, Authenticity, Consciousness, Empathy). So, what exactly is Pandora’s Box? According to Wikipedia, “Pandora's box is an artifact in Greek mythology connected with the myth that Pandora’s curiosity led her to open a container left in care of her husband, thus releasing physical and emotional curses upon mankind.” Well, physical and emotional struggles have certainly been rampant recently. In fact, in addition to the grim headlines, recent statistics report that depression, along with related emotional/mental struggles, have jumped from 8% to over 30% in the last two years. Diagnoses aside, everyone has been affected on some level by recent events, not to mention the normal challenges associated with life in general.
My point in highlighting these issues is no way an attempt to reveal or prove the so-called truth about these and other incidents across the globe. My goal is just the opposite, to locate the crossroads where the road less travelled, the pathway to humanity and wearing our grace is clearly accessible.
It’s time to stop pointing the finger and start pulling the thumb. In other words, when there’s harmony within, we’re better able to create harmony out in the world. All the changes we desire, the peace we seek, and the personal value so many are searching for begin at the point of power - that point is deep within your core. It’s time for each of us to use our energy and influence to shift the culture of outrage toward the culture of consciousness, beginning with self direction and personal leadership. We are the ones who got us to this tipping point of indignation and devastation, and we are the only ones who can get us beyond it and back on the solid ground of humanity and conscious evolution.
The good news is the pathway forward is clear. You already have what it takes to tap into your point of power and usher forth the grace and influence necessary to shift the tide away from this endless stream of unconscionable conduct. It begins with what you choose to believe about yourself, humanity, and the potential for all life moving forward. Turns out, it’s comes down to energy and belief.
The place to start is with science, the new facts around the potential for change and transformation. As a translational researcher, I integrate historic discoveries such as Einstein’s theory of relativity with modern research such as Epigenetics and Quantum Physics to create philosophies and strategies applicable in everyday life.
Put simply, respected researchers such as Dr.’s Bruce Lipton and Joe Dispenza, have debunked Darwin’s Genetic Determinism and Newton’s Physics establishing humans as nothing more than physically located brains and bodies, with discoveries grounded in Epigenetics and Quantum theory. Epigenetics is the study of how an organism, such as human beings, change based on how a cell perceives and interprets its environment rather than centered on its gen
