Animal Crackers

I woke the other day thinking about a friend that I had not seen in many years. Within half an hour, without me doing anything, she contacted me to become a friend on Facebook. Just a coincidence? Maybe. But what about the other day when I was thinking about a movie that I haven’t seen for a few years, only to have it on the TV just a couple of days later? And what about 327 always coming up in my life?  Is the power of though strong enough to make something happen? You think someone would look into all of this. Well guess what, they have.

In 1997 a scientists at the University of Geneva divided photons (light particles) and, using a fibre optic cable, sent the pairs of light particles over 12 km’s apart. Reaching the end of these fibres’, the two photons we forced to randomly choose between alternate pathways. Uncannily, in every case the choice of any one photon mirrored its partner, even though there was no physical way for each photon to communicate with each other.

What this experiment suggests is that at a subatomic level there is a connection between everything in the universe. In laymen’s terms, it means that you have a connection that you don’t understand with the world around you.

It is interesting to note that even though we do not understand this connection, we have in some way always known that it existed. We have all had coincidences where we thought about someone you haven’t seen for a while and then you run into them, or they ring you. You think about a song, and then you hear it over and over for the next three days.

Is it just coincidence, or have we all managed to tap into this connection somehow? Now some people have a name for this connection already, they call it God, and maybe the scientists have just proven that he/she really does exist. Or maybe it just is some type of mysterious force. All we do know is that it exists.

And it is at this point that we can use it to our own advantage. 

Start thinking positive thoughts about whatever it is that you want. It may not just magically appear, but you will see results. The connections that we have will come alive and you will start moving towards your dreams and your dreams towards you.

The problem is that I believe that negative thoughts can outgun positive thoughts. So get rid of them. Remember, the connections work on what we think, so negative thoughts will only bring negative results.

And never think bad thoughts about another person, or try to wish upon them bad luck. You get back what you put out. If you wish pain and suffering upon someone, it will come back to you. Just wish them out of your life and that they have a great life away from you. You’re putting out positive thoughts and it will come back to you.

So be positive about what you want. You also need to be realistic, but have faith in your abilities, be positive and above all else, smile.

P.S. Congratulations to those who have guessed where the titles for the articles were coming from. They are all Marx Brothers Films. So were A Day at the Races and A Night at the Opera, which Queen also used for two of their albums.

P.P.S. Please also remember the poetry is up at
