CHRISTMAS PARADIGM SHIFT AND THE OBSERVER EFFECT


“There's always going to be bad stuff out there. But here's the amazing thing -- light trumps darkness, every time. You stick a candle into the dark, but you can't stick the dark into the light.” 

― Jodi Picoult


"...and the Light shines in darkness, and the darkness cannot overtake it"...Christmas is all about a revelation...an epiphany...a New Birth...a change of heart...a paradigm shift...a triumph of Light over darkness...


With the revelation of the miracle of Christmas, the Grinch's heart grows three times its normal size...Ebenezer Scrooge rethinks his life, and is euphoric to wake up and find that he hasn't missed Christmas, after all...he ecstatically wishes a Merry Christmas to everyone, and a Happy New Year to the whole world, with no trace of "Bah! Humbug!"...George Bailey realizes that he really does have a wonderful life, and wants to live again...Charlie Brown comes out of his depression about the commercialization of Christmas, and just decides to relax and enjoy it for what it is...


We've discussed here on the blog and at METRON Community the concept in Quantum Physics called "the Observer Effect", the idea that the observer creates reality...


Wayne Dyer says, "If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change"...that's it...ideally, Christmas changes the way we look at things...call it magic or miracle, the truth is that this is the time of year when we open up our hearts to believe that the clunky and clumsy logic of natural law is completely suspended, and suddenly we re-visualize a world of possibilities...a dreamland where anything can happen...not just a place where every mother's child is gonna spy to see if reindeer really know how to fly...not just a dimension in which an angel tries to get his wings by showing you that you've really had a wonderful life...not just a strange world in which ghosts visit you in the night, and cause you to have a completely transformational paradigm shift about life, about money, about relationships, about yourself...but an amazing, timeless world where massive angelic choirs serenade shepherds out in the middle of nowhere, in the dead of night, for no apparent reason...a place where eastern magician-astrologers are led by celestial light to a foreign country just to worship an infant King...a nexus for the visible and invisible realms, where a virgin can somehow conceive, and, inexplicably, the Word is actually made flesh and dwells among us...a real place where He appears and our souls feel their worth...


Yesterday, my FB friend, Francis, posted this comment on the previous blog post, "You are so right! Whatever we want in this human experience we can have it.  As for me and mine...I want to live in heaven on earth. I believe we will wake up one day and hear...You've been here all the time..."



It made me think of the story of Jacob in Genesis 28 when he awakens from his dream of the stairway or ladder into "heaven", and realizes that he is already there...



Jacob woke up from his sleep. He said, “God is in this place—truly. And I didn’t even know it!” He was terrified. He whispered in awe, “Incredible. Wonderful. Holy. This is God’s House. This is the Gate of Heaven.”
(Genesis 28:16, 17 - The Message)


Basically, that's what happens to Ebenezer and George and the Grinch...they realize on Christmas how awesome it all really already is, and what they already have...Christmas causes them to change the way they look at things, and then the things they look at change...


That's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown...

    I have always been a believer that we create our own "heaven" and our own "hell". The "devil" has never reigned in my world.
