100-Word Stroll, 9/19/16: STUNNINGLY AWESOME WHILE UNCONSCIOUS

Posted by on September 19, 2016

Of COURSE it’s possible.

Your conscious mind is able to process approximately 50 bits of information a second, while your nonconscious mind processes approximately 11 million bits per second. That means your nonconscious mind processes information about 220 THOUSAND TIMES FASTER than your conscious mind.

Your mind’s used to doing what God created it to do at speeds you can only dream about–while you’re asleep.

Your job is to install the best stuff at conscious speed.  Then rest, calmly step away from your mind and observe it go WHIS-S-S-S-S-H like good ol’ NCC 1701 heading out at warp 9.

How?  Philippians 4 says to knock off worrying, substituting praying about it all while showing/speaking gratitude for what God’s already done and is doing (v. 6).  The promised return:  divine peace of mind and spirit – and in our world, that’s something to be reaching for (v. 7)!

More to the point:  Aim at, intentionally focus on, “filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious–the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse” (v. 8).

“So that whole GARBAGE IN / GARBAGE OUT thing is for true?”

Yep.  It are.  You get out exactly what you input – at speeds you can only imagine.

Give it some thought.  Then go to sleep.
