Renowned author and speaker in the field of self-development Dr. Wayne Dyer and foremost authority in bridging science and spirit Dr. Bruce Lipton discussed how genes and DNA do not control our body, and how MEMES, or mind viruses, are infecting our population. Viruses function to duplicate, infiltrate, and spread, and so it is with mental or cultural beliefs which people have been programmed with, Dyer noted. 95% of behavior stems from thoughts and beliefs stored in the subconscious mind, and most of these came from other people, and tend to be self-sabotaging, Lipton pointed out.
I use the term "habitual mind," instead of what Bruce calls subconscious, said Dyer, explaining that people have a lot of "excuses" in their head as to why they can't effect change-- such as 'I'm too old,' 'I'm too busy,' etc. But when you change the way you look at things, things start to change, he commented. You can overcome limiting ideas, he advised, and not always believe everything you think-- most of what you think doesn't hold up.
Dr. Lipton talked about his understanding of "epigenetics"-- how genetic change in people can occur through the adjusting of their perceptions. We can be the architects of our genetic blueprint, he said, and use the stem cells within our body to manifest miracles. The human community is going through an "evolutionary upheaval," moving past the mental programming that emphasizes our separateness from one another, Lipton concluded.
In the first hour, trends analyst Gerald Celente offered commentary about the economy. The American bailout plan has been driven by a kind of "optimism opium," and other countries are starting to express concern over how the US keeps printing money without anything to back it up, he said. Wall Street has "hijacked" Washington and we're heading into an "Obamageddon," he added.
