Part 2: A New Paradigm of Perception
By Penney Peirce
As an "expert intuitive" who has worked with executives and the general public for over thirty years, I have synthesized a broad yet detailed understanding about the nature of perception by repeatedly acting as a bridge between the unseen, intangible realm and the physical world of logic, language, and practical solutions. Fundamental changes are happening today, everywhere in the world. I feel it will be business, through its need to stay abreast of emerging market trends, that will help lead the way in catalyzing a profound and lasting societal transformation –– and in the foreseeable future.
Perception Itself Is Changing
This transformation process I'm talking about is not so much about changing a few traditions or habits, or about rearranging the "stuff" of the world into new combinations, or even about the affects of the new technologies that are being invented––it's really that perception itself is changing. We are evolving into an entirely new way of knowing reality, of actually manifesting our world out of new collective assumptions about how the universe works. This is a far-reaching change, one that has probably happened on the face of the earth only a few times in history. It’s the sort of visceral world shift that will literally change the way we relate to time and space. I want to explore with you here a few of the ways this perceptual shift will change the way we do business.
At the root of this “paradigm shift” is a mysterious interpenetration of the spiritual, that part of our higher nature that is beyond time and space, and the physical world we commonly label "reality." Though this sounds wildly metaphysical and abstract, in actuality this concurrence of two dimensions (or ways of knowing) at the same time, in the same space, is being commonly experienced as the sensation of life accelerating, of vast amounts of knowledge available more and more directly, of greater simultaneity, synchronicity, of a yearning for contact with more refined people and lifeforms, of a desire to purify oneself. I see one of the major signs of this merger in the idea of the unification of mind and body.
We are seeing the theme arising now, especially in psychotherapeutic trends, where the mind must literally descend into the body, symbolically journeying into the mythological underworld, and must illumine the dark corners of matter. It’s dawning on us that the earth is alive and conscious, and that our physical body, similarly, is our real "brain center." So, as my mind and body become one, I become present to the knowledge that my cells hold memories, that my body is full of data, constantly transmitting new information. When I succeed in bringing my full attention into my physical body, I can feel the field of vibrating, resonating, conscious particles of which I am composed. If I keep exploring, still from the perspective of the merged mind and body, I realize my body doesn't end at the skin, but continues out through the endless unified field of particles of matter.
If there is no end to my personal self, then I soon arrive at the awesome conclusion that the whole world is my body, that all the people, trees, insects, rocks, and clouds are interwoven elements of my own makeup. Nothing can be lost or gotten rid of, because there's no such thing any more as "inside and outside." Everything has its place. And certainly, if I perceive that the entire physical plane is personal, I will begin to act responsibly. To litter, cheat or steal, to blame or punish others, actually affects ME and my well-being.
The Golden Rule Is Common Sense
So spirituality in our own life, or in business, in anything, really boils down to the practice of the Golden Rule, which will be simple common sense as soon as we experience Einstein's unified field. Though the Golden Rule is a Christian term, the concept is universal: Treat the outside world as though it's the inside; treat others as though they're yourself, practice loving the One Self, the one divine consciousness of life however and wherever it manifests –– in your personal mind, in other people, in emotions, in events, in nature. In business, it means: Love your employees as yourself, treat the client as you want to be treated, care for your local community and your environment as if it were your own physical body.
