“You must unlearn what you have been programmed to believe since birth. That software no longer serves you if you want to live in a world where all things are possible.” – Jacqueline E. Purcell
I don’t agree with the entirety of the above graphic + quote.
No matter how much you re-work your brain’s software, I don’t believe all things will ever be possible. The fear from brain wiring is a great inhibitor.
Reading this quote, though, I had an ah ha moment.
To do my work, I am constantly updating software. Why? because times and technology changes.
To stay current, I have to fork over expensive upgrade fees, because software developers are constantly coming up with new, better ways to attack the same jobs.
This is an amazing metaphor for belief. Belief wants to keep a message system that is outdated. It would be like me using a Pentium 486 to accomplish the tasks I need to today. Times change.
You need to update the basis of your thought just like you need to update the software and the hardware in your computer.
The new is better. Not the old. It’s not easy to accept.
But Jesus is in beta. And there are too many greater ways of thought, love, and expression than ever. Embrace the now. The past is what we built today on. Recognize it and move forward.
There’s an upgrade waiting for you.
