EVERYTHING is energy

If you've ever had a conversation with me, then chances are at some point I have mentioned that everything is energy.  EVERYTHING.  Some of you "got it" and some looked at me like I was a loon but smiled with polite courtesy.  My friend Vinnie Straub posted something on facebook that addressed this energy topic.  I am copy & pasting his post just as I found it so proper credit can be given. 

For those of you that already "get it", it's a nice refresher, for those of you still struggling to understand that everything is energy, this article might be helpful for you.  Enjoy!

EVERYTHING is energy.
Science shows that everything is made up of energy. The same energy that composes you is the same that composes me, your parents, your daughter, someone living in another country, the bricks of houses, trees, rocks, everything.
We are all made up of atoms but you can go deeper than atoms and find that atoms are made of nothing but pure energy.
Just like televisions and cell phones convert energy into sights and sounds, your brain converts this energy into the sights and sounds of your reality.
Since everything is energy, there is no distinction where this energy begins and ends. Therefore we are all one.
Everything and everyone are one. But that does not mean you are not unique. You are like a wave in the ocean. You are the individual wave but you are also the entire ocean. Everything you do affects everyone and everything.
There is what is called the “collective unconscious”. You can kind of consider it a library of information containing everything knowable. Here is the incredible part. You have access to that collective unconscious. We access it all the time but many times are unaware that we are doing it. What this basically means is if one person knows it then be assured, without a doubt, that information is available to you. If one person can do something then so can you.
All the thoughts that go through your head in a day and everything that you are thinking and feeling are not you. Notice that you can observe your thoughts. You can notice your thoughts. But that which is being observed can’t be that which is doing the observing. If you are observing something, the thing you are observing is not you.
If you observe a dog, the dog is not you. If you observe a house, the house is not you. If you observe your thoughts, your thoughts are not you.
The true you is that which is doing the observing. That is your higher self.
I know that is hard to grasp at first.
But what you need to do is learn to quiet your thoughts and quiet your mind. Try and clear you mind of all thoughts.
That is very hard to do.
Just sit still and try to eliminate all thoughts.
You will notice that thoughts keep popping into your head. The secret is to just observe the thoughts, don’t judge them, don’t fight them, just experience them and let them pass.
The ultimate goal is to completely quiet your mind. Again this is very hard to do at first. The thoughts will want to keep coming and coming.
As you do this more often, it will get easier and easier to quiet your mind.
As you do this you are drawing yourself into what is known as the NOW. You are bringing yourself closer and closer to your higher self we talked about earlier.
The benefits of your higher self are unlimited. You will begin to learn that as you access your higher self there is nothing you can’t do be or have.
You are in this world to create. We are all creators. You are here to create your world anyway your want.
Consider this quote from a very good author Neale Donald Walsch who wrote books called “Conversations with God.”
“The deepest secret is that life is not a process of discovery, but a process of creation. You are not discovering yourself, but creating yourself anew. Seek therefore, not to find out Who You Are, but seek to determine Who You Want To Be.” – Neale Donald Walsch
