Hello Beautiful Souls :)

This thread is for a discussion and more importantly, PLATFORM to eradicate non-useful memes among us here at Energetic Forum, and as you will see, this will impact the world belief system!!! :dance:

First though, what are Memes?

Since returning from the Matrix Energetics seminar in Hawaii, I have thought a lot about something that was presented in Level III called Memes. This is because I hear them repeated endlessly in associations with people all around me. Many do not realize that the expression and belief in certain sayings, or memes, is extremely powerful and a direct contributor to the creation of events in their lives and those around them.

What are they?

Here is a definition as presented in Wipedia:

A meme, (IPA (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPA_chart_for_English): /mi:m/) as defined within memetic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memetics) theory (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theory), comprises a theoretical unit of cultural (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Culture) information (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Information), the building block of cultural evolution (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sociocultural_evolution) or diffusion (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cultural_diffusion) that propagates from one mind to another analogously (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Analogy) to the way in which a gene (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gene) propagates from one organism to another as a unit of genetic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetics) information and of biological evolution (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evolution).[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memes#_note-0) Multiple memes may propagate as cooperative groups called memeplexes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memeplex) (meme complexes). Biologist (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biologist) and evolutionary theorist Richard Dawkins (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Dawkins) coined the term meme in 1976.[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memes#_note-1) He gave as examples tunes, catch-phrases, beliefs, clothing fashions, ways of making pots, and the technology of building arches.
Meme theorists contend that memes evolve by natural selection (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_selection) similarly to Darwinian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Darwin) biological (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biology) evolution (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evolution) through the processes of variation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Variation), mutation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutation), competition (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Competition), and inheritance influencing an organism's reproductive success. So with memes, some ideas will propagate less successfully and become extinct (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extinction), while others will survive, spread, and, for better or for worse, mutate (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutation). "Memeticists argue that the memes most beneficial to their hosts will not necessarily survive; rather, those memes that replicate the most effectively spread best, which allows for the possibility that successful memes may prove detrimental to their hosts."[3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memes#_note-Kelly)
A short story written in 1876 by Mark Twain (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Twain), A Literary Nightmare (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Literary_Nightmare), describes his encounter with a jingle so "catchy" that it plays over and over in his mind until he finally sings it out loud and infects others (also known as an earworm (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earworm)).



Fascinating, eh?!?!?!

But lets go for a summation of what Wikpedia made sound all hoity toity :rolleyes:
Basically memes, as Dr. Bartlett explains it, are like 'global thought-forms that tie into and are reinforced by Morphic Resonance'. He also says that "a deeply sustained Meme can act like a dark enchantment and can sustain the person in a limbo of consciousness where healing may not be able to occur." Hmmm, dark enchantment? Sounds like a CURSE to me! Indeed, that was Dr. Bartletts point - that meme's are like self-made or acquired curses that work in every similar way to any other description of what we often think 'curses' are.

What to do about them though??? These things are like software programs operating in our sub-conscious mind. They have a life of their own that is shared with all others 'connected through the Net' of the collective unconscious mind. So, just using 'software' as a useful fiction of sorts, we can do all kinds of cool things with these memes! We can press DELETE, MODIFY, or COPY and PASTE new memes that are much more useful.

Though some of these tools to change such software were a heavy-duty FUN part of M.E. level III, WE can tap into some of these tools RIGHT HERE!


First though, it is important to realize that Memes are not always harmful, that there are also helpful or useful meme's which we will discuss.

Now to the tools, in the following post...

Love and light and here's to no longer being in the reality of Memes that are no longer useful or helpful! :blowout::hug::fingerdance::yahoo:

There are several ways to deal with Memes, from mild to wild. Hehe, I KNOW you want to know the wild ones, but hold on, I'll get to them :D

First Tool:
BE the Observer of everything you say and do.

This is an EXTREMELY POWERFUL TOOL for ALL of LIFE! However, in the case of Memes, if we are always 'listening' to our own internal dialogue as well as everything being uttered from our mouth, we will SOON hear any of the 'sayings' that are self-limiting, that are CURSES which have been built up and passed along down through the centuries of people on this planet.

When you hear internal dialogue, or hear your own mouth speak a non-useful Meme, simply be aware of it and Observe. This act of observation with the 'feeling' intent of no longer expressing such Memes will have them fade away all on their own. Replace such dialogue and spoken word with the Meme or belief that you WANT, at the same time. Do not resist the Meme with any language of opposition - this will only make it STRONGER!

Be aware as Observer of the things others are saying and apply the same process in your own mind as you hear them. Try to share new positive Memes in such an environment, however, if there is great opposition to such new thoughts, choose to be in a different environment ASAP! These things are CONTAGIOUS and PROPAGATING on a level of communication and subtle energy that goes far beyond just what the mouth speaks and the ears hear!!!


Second Tool:

Creation of a 'virtual device or procedure' of whatever works for you.

The one that I really like is the 'virtual creation' in the mind of a Stargate as shown in the movie. Yes, in your mind create that big wheel-like device that has the arcane symbology around it. Imagine placing it over the location you are in where the Memes are being spoken. (If it is yourself you wish to change, then set it up over your head or near your mouth etc - make it all up!) Or, if you are conducting a healing modality, set this up over you and the one you are intending to help.

When the device you have chosen is virtually set up, TURN IT ON. With your intention as the removal of no-longer-useful Memes, they will be sent away to 'another place', like a trans-dimensional permanent vacation! :D

There are other tools as well, but if you like one of these, try em out! OR, perhaps you have a good one you'd like to SHARE! PLEEEEEASE DO! :)

Next post...setting up this thread as both a Stargate to remove Memes of any who'd like to join in, or as a 'Copy and Paste' to change the 'software' running in our sub-conscious mind. :dance:

Love and light,

What a great way of understanding subconscious programming that can exist on a cellular level, a collective (or morphic) level, and everywhere in between!

I have found that rather than spending energy trying to get rid of non-useful memes, my time is much better spent replacing them with useful, productive memes.

There are so many tools to do this-

Reading
Meditation
PATHS (Program Authoring The Human Subconscious)
SCIO
Energized water and other items
Conscious "day dreaming"
Conscious control of thoughts via tools like the Emotional Guidance System
Choosing what media we expose ourselves to
Choosing what people we spend our time with
Matrix Energetics
and the list goes on!

This is going to be a FUN :blowout:thread!

Ok, up till now, some may have wondered 'what the heck is he on?' :rofl: 'What is all this Meme silliness?' :thinking::rolleyes::wall::suprise::rofl:

I'll start out with a few that come to mind:

'Money doesn't grow on trees'

I AM - followed by whatever self-limiting Curse people have come up with over the eons! Such as 'I AM always sick at this time of year'...'I AM allergic to this or that food'...'I AM Soooo Unhappy'

'Everyone knows.....<fill in the blanks>'

'Its a proven scientific FACT ....<fill in the blanks>' (by the way, many scientific 'facts' are MADE UP lol)

Ok, if you feel so inclined, please add more Memes to this thread...it is a special thread with a virtual Stargate set up over it to send them off to some other reality where they will no longer affect us! <---Not kidding here! This most powerful tool is straight out of M.E. III and it works!!! :dance:

ALSO, please ADD Memes of positivity that will be USEFUL and HELPFUL to our lives, and to the collective of Humanity. Things that express only our true Divinity, Unlimitedness, Abundance, and anything else that ADDS new creative thought-forms!!!

Thank you SO SO MUCH!

Here's to non-useful Meme-lessness :cheers:

Here's to the successful installation of Useful Meme's! :sun:

Thank you so much for adding more 'tools' while also emphasizing that Memes are not something you 'fight' or resist!

Adding them to the list in this thread is like throwing them in the trash, except in a wayyyy cooler science fiction'ey way! :D Also, there really is a new 'idea' being created here in sending them off. A two-point, virtual-reality creation of the Stargate on this thread is as REAL as anything else our consciousness creates!!! WILD EH? The more of us that add to this creation, the more powerful it becomes! ;)

Here is another Meme, a particularly insidious one as it transfers responsibility for our thoughts and beliefs OUTSIDE of OURSELF!

'THEY SAID.......<fill in the blanks>'

I like this, I hadn't heard the word meme before, but I "specialise" in helping myself and others remove limiting mind chatter. Just being aware and taking note can be very revealing. I recommend Lynn Grabhorn's book Excuse Me Your Life Is Waiting (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0340834463?ie=UTF8&tag=httpsonorajay-21&linkCode=as2&camp=1634&creative=6738&creativeASIN=0340834463), the 30 day exercise works wonders. It takes a bit of dedication, but it can be achieved. It's a habit well worth becoming expert at. Creates new thought patterns, which is where Paths also comes in as Kevin said too. Noticing, being diligent, treating yourself kindly, all reaps rewards. Great thread!

What a fantastic idea!! :thumbsup:

To replace Pamela's "I'm broke", how about -

"Money comes to me easily and frequently from many sources."


And here's one to send on Permanent Inter-Galactic Vacation -

"I'm not good enough to/for......."

Hello everyone! :)

Thank you :superman: tephen for introducing us to memes! :notworthy:

Here are some general memes I believe have plagued each of us at some point or another and need to be dropped kicked pronto! :mad:

I am not worthy
I am not good enough
I am not smart/intelligent/talented enough
I am not deserving
I am a loser
I will never amount to anything/They said I'd never amount to anything
Life is hard/struggle
I won't make it/They told me I won't make it
I'll always feel fear/anxiety
There is no hope/now way out for me
I will always be this way
I can't change
I'll always be sick/have this illness/disease/syndrome

NOW for some good memes!!!! :sun:

I am at peace
I am filled with joy
Abundance is all around me
Love is all there is
I am powerful
I create only good for myself

:dance:

The Stargate is blasting those out of here! :blowout:

I particularly like to send on their way, the Memes you hear around the office/coffee/supper tables, when people are just chatting about things that 'are true' and 'everybody knows'.

For example:

"THEY say that your memory fails as you get older, and its TRUE"

"I'M <insert age>, yup, GETTING OLD" followed by laughs, but this is powerful self-messaging as well as including everyone else in that morphic field!!!

"My eyesight isn't what is used to be when I was younger"

"It FIGURES...."

"I'm not surprised he/she/they ALWAYS do/say/think that"

"Once a <insert assumption> ALWAYS a <inserted assumption"

"That is just HUMAN NATURE, you can't fight it" :rolleyes:

"He/she/they are always LUCKY, I wish I was that LUCKY"

"Its in his/hers/my GENES, I can't help it" (Bruce Liptons, Biology of Belief does a good number on dissolving this one, though we can have more fun sending it through the Stargate :D )

"<insert disease> is in my family, you know. My mother 'had' it, and her mother too, I'm so WORRIED"


Though I have immense compassion for anyone suffering under the numerous labels given the various things called 'disease'...in my view, these are not REAL, in the sense that we can step outside of that particular reality to another one it does not exist. This is the direction the increased awareness of consciousness is going, and a place where awakened people and Masters have been for thousands of years!

When you take these Memes out of context, don't they seem RIDICULOUS??? Btw, another great tool to use!!!

Tool Number Three:
In the style of Harry Potter, when faced with your conscious mind expressing a Meme, or in company of others saying them, or watching them on the media (news etc), simply Observe like in Tool #1 (this is extremely powerful and allows you, among other things, to 'step out' of the 'reality' where those particular Memes exist), and state with fun in your mind/voice, "RIDICULOUS!" :D

If you listen to the media as an Observer watching for the powerful messages that are NOT just words, but Memes of great power, that are sculpting our society, you will see that it is FILLED with them! I rarely ever watch news or certain other media shows for this reason. There are TOO MANY Memes for me to consistently step out of the reality of. SHEESH! :rolleyes: This is in addition to the principle of what your heart dwells upon, you add to attracting into your life and into the world!

Love, light and Joy!

Oh Dear Pamela - that is a MOST excellent Meme to send out the 'Gate!

'I'm Broke' can be taken more than one way, at its core it could mean 'I'm Broke' as in BROKEN, and nothing is FARTHER from the TRUTH about ANY of us!!!

Instead the Truth is that we are WHOLE, COMPLETE, BEAUTIFUL experiential aspects of GOD! Any other view of limitation is only an Ego-mind created ILLUSION!

Bye bye Meme, Hasta La Vista!

Hmmmm! this one hits home for me! Although I did not know what it was called, I have become very aware of the persistent Memes I have been allowing to run through my head! The last few days I have suddenly become very aware of my self talk, and really started observing it! This was by NO mistake or coincidence, but by starting to read the Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle.

To correct my self talk this last few days I have started saying either to myself or outloud "I am WORTHY!" over and over and over all day long! So between that and using the Process from the busting loose book... I tell you it has been powerfull.

Tonight I started to give in to a upset tummy and was laying down in defeat... When I decided this qualifies as discomfort! I need to take action with this! Tell the truth about it! and so on and so forth... It was a lie, an illusion, and one I give into a lot... The illusion that I have a tempermental stomach... New memes... My stomach works perfectly all the time!

This is an awesome thread Stephen! WAY COOL!

Thank you so much for starting this thread, Stephen. :) I wish I could add something a little more highbrow to this wonderful discussion ... but all I can say is that last night I was reading about the toilet roll meme (http://www.susanblackmore.co.uk/memetics/loo%20roll.htm) and wondering, "what on earth is a meme, and what's it got to do with me?" and then this morning I logged on here and found this marvellous thread, which answered all my questions! Apart from the eternal mystery of the triangular fold, that is .... oh, and the mysterious chocolate on the pillow, how about that? :p

Yes, great thread Stephen! :cool:

I find that when I 'm working with people using ME that memes is a very popular issue that comes up to be dealt with, even as far back as in another past life.

So my beautiful friends here are some other aids for when you are out & about & not here :

STEP 1 - banish those memes through your own portable stargate . :http://www.freesmileys.org/emo/stargate007.gif (http://www.freesmileys.org)

or as Richard Bartlett also mentions teleport them off to another dimension - http://www.freesmileys.org/emo/stargate003.gif (http://www.freesmileys.org)


STEP 2 - Go through your stargate & bring back the beneficial meme to replace it with! http://www.freesmileys.org/emo/stargate001.gif (http://www.freesmileys.org)

Thanks sooo much Stephen for starting this wonderful thread ....

the last couple of days i realized something funny and now i can put it just in the right frame .... i noticed that my first reaction to many situations is immediately uttering the words "I'm Shocked" :eek: !! ... i found myself saying this phrase sooo soooo many times a day .... and i keep getting shocked lol and keep expressing it and keep getting exposed to shocking situations, hearing shocking stories .etc. .... in fact, my friends and family have started picking on me and laughing at how i am always in a state of shock :) .... well it has always been said in a funny way, nothing so intense u know..... but just yesterday i had to stop and tell myself, Lama you need to stop saying that and letting it control your character !! ... i started feeling that every cell of my body is constantly in a state of shock or something lol

so that was my decision yesterday, I decided that everytime I was tempted to say that, I would say something else, like "I'm grateful" or "I'm happy" or "that's funny" .... and i started doing so already ... :)

and now this morning i'm reading this memes thingie and i can see what i decided to do is replace my bad bad meme with new good ones :D ... I am sooo grateful ... :color:

...exactly what lots of the PATHS-modules are doing? :thinking: Shattering unhealthy paradigms and killing negative brain-chatter?

When I used to be a dedicated atheist Richard Dawkins was my god ;) so I've been familiar with the idea of memes for quite some time and I think it's very interesting...

And as I think someone mentioned above...I think it's great to avoid negative input alltogether and therefor I've cancelled my newspaper, never watch the news on tv and my latest thing I've been doing for a couple of months is to train myself into not looking at tabloids...and I'm getting better but sometimes I forget and happen to read the first few lines of a tabloid before I stop myself and then I've started to remake whatever horrible story the tabloid told me in my mind into some positive story...it's a pretty cool thing...

What a Great thread, :superman:tephen !! :hug:

In the Fabulous book Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East, the author talks about the importance of words, and the vibration they have.

'The moment we use a negative word we are taking energy away from our body to keep it going. We hypnotize ourselves into believing that is a fact and that hypnotic influence is what carries us right on to repeat it again and again. Now, if we no longer permit ourselves to become hypnotized by those negative thoughts and refuse ever to repeat them again, they disappear from our worlds completely.
If we would let go of old age, lack of eyesight and imperfections in the body, these negative conditions would not register in the physical form. Our body is being renewed all the time and that is really the resurrection. That resurrection takes place every nine months throughout all of humanity.

If we are capable of learning them (negative statements) and believing them, we are far more capable of unlearning them by demanding that they leave everytime they come up or are repeated to us from the subconscious. Just say to them 'You are completely forgiven, so leave me entirely alone'. Then say to your subconcious 'Just erase all of those and accept no record, only the truth as I set it forth.'

The author also writes the importance of knowing that we DO know:

‘Here is an experience we had, to make my point: We needed a man for a specific work. We had been working for a long time on a given problem and were seemingly at the crossroads, when this young man came up from Columbia University. He had never had any experience with this type of work, yet in 25 minutes he had solved our problem! Here, we had been working on the whole thing for almost four years.
Now what happened? He knew that he knew every moment of the time, and went into that office and said to himself: 'I know this situation' and he brought forth the solution just by knowing.

I have had the same thing happened to me at Calcutta University, I joined what is known there as the preparatory school when I was four years old. The very first day I attended, the teacher said to me: Here is the alphabet, what do you think about that? I said I don’t know and he replied well, if you keep that up you will never know. Now turn right around and let go of that ‘I don’t know’ and know that you DO know what that is. Through that very thing I went through that school and completed Calcutta University when I was 14 years old.’

So, what could we all accomplish if we knew that we knew whatever it is we want to know? All the answers are already here, we just need to know that we already know the answer ;)

Use it if you have 'misplaced' something, and tell yourself 'I know where it is'... and voila!! :D

I know that I know! :D

In his book "Think & Grow Rich" Napoleon Hill writes:

"Here take notice of a very significant truth, viz:
The business depression started in 1929,and continued on to an all time round of destruction, until some time after President Roosevelt entered office.

Then the depression began to fade into nothingness. just as an electrician in a theatre raises the lights so gradually that darkness is transmuted into light before you realize it. So did the spell of fear in the minds of people gradually fade away & become faith.

Observe very closely, as soon as you master the principles of this philosophy, & begin to follow the instructions for applying these principles, your financial status will begin to improve, & everything you touch will begin to transmute itself into an asset for your benefit. Impossible? Not at all!

One of the main weaknesses of mankind is the average man's familiarity with the word "impossible". He knows all the rules which will NOT work. He knows all the things which CANNOT be done......

A great many years ago I purchased a fine dictionary. The first thing I did with it was to turn to the word "impossible" & neatly clip it out of the book. That would not be an unwise thing for you to do.

Success comes to those who become SUCCESS CONSCIOUS."

The language we use has an energy 'signature' and goes a long way to creating 'stuff'...remember in The Secret when one of the guests shares the quote 'thoughts are THINGS'?! Language of the mind and spoken word have such incredible power!

I'm SO happy you are rewriting the subconscious programming, the SOFTWARE that just goes along doing its thing until we alter it! Like a virus, the non-useful Memes propagate across the collective, but like a great anti-virus program, we can neutralize them, not by resistance, but by replacement with new Memes, and send THEM out to lovingly 'infect' the rest of the collective!

Love and light,

I love those emoticons!

The world of imagination is a great place! With our mind, we can create 'virtual realities', we're doing it all the time anyway! In a Stargate reality, we find a useful tool to accomplish, through fun and imagination, what might otherwise be a boring and less effective process of changing a pattern of belief. FUN and IMAGINATION is where the Power to create miracles is at!!! Through this door (us), along with Trust, Source seeks to fulfill Intention!

Thank you again for your awesome contributions - You are wonderful! :hug:

Thanks - I love this.

Here is one that has just gotta go:

"I can't..."

I'm SO glad you brought this one up, Glenn!!!

Here is a great video clip from Star Wars IV that epitomizes the power of trust and belief that you CAN do ANYTHING you set your mind to!!!

YouTube - Yoda Dagobah (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-zD-RohzNY)

Here are some of the Memes I noticed:

Luke: "We'll never get it out now"..."I can't"..."You want the IMPOSSIBLE" :rolleyes: ..."I don't believe it" (Yoda's response "That is why you fail"

Yoda's commentary: "Only different in your mind"!..."You must unlearn what you have learned"

Star Wars contains oodles of useful virtual reality material that we can access (the morphic field ideas) and integrate into the pattern of information that is 'us'. :dance:

In peace,

"Whatever is true,
Whatever is noble,
Whatever is right,
Whatever is pure,
Whatever is lovely,
Whatever is admirable,
-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things....
put it into practice, and the God of peace will be with you."

Phillippians 4:8-9

...exactly what lots of the PATHS-modules are doing? :thinking: Shattering unhealthy paradigms and killing negative brain-chatter?

When I used to be a dedicated atheist Richard Dawkins was my god ;) so I've been familiar with the idea of memes for quite some time and I think it's very interesting...

And as I think someone mentioned above...I think it's great to avoid negative input alltogether and therefor I've cancelled my newspaper, never watch the news on tv and my latest thing I've been doing for a couple of months is to train myself into not looking at tabloids...and I'm getting better but sometimes I forget and happen to read the first few lines of a tabloid before I stop myself and then I've started to remake whatever horrible story the tabloid told me in my mind into some positive story...it's a pretty cool thing...

:blowout:

As mentioned by 'Admin' in their post above, PATHS is also a super tool to imprint new Memes. However, PATHS works even better when we consciously work to align with it - like adding a very fine, high-quality oil to the machine.

I too have virtually eliminated all input from the media that no longer serves me in my desire to be a positive effect for change in the planetary consciousness. I do not live in the fears of the general population, so why would I fill my mind with them? Imagine if millions of people suddenly stopped filling their minds and hearts with the low-energy laden information of prolific Memes that are found in much of the media? Over and over, things are stated in various media forms as if they are FACT! Yes, we KNOW that all such things are malleable and changeable, especially if you allow for a holographic universe! Now THAT would be a GOOD shock to the Collective if millions suddenly 'changed channels'! It would be like opening the floodgates of resistance to Source, and allowing an incredible rush of pure Intention to overrun and transform the low-energies to higher vibrations - there would be a cascade effect!

The beautiful thing is - that is what all of us are doing here!!! And, already, hundreds of thousands, if not into millions, who are going into a similar place, without being externally 'converted' nor forced to follow some artificial creed. Through the power of one consciousness on the active side of infinity, thousands are affected!!! :blowout:

Thank you so much for your post Dannyboybell!

Namaste,

~ isn't the very word meme another meme?

~ I tend to think, but I may be wrong, that a meme is not only verbal/auditory but also visual & kinesthetic; perhaps 1 of these 3 components has a stronger impact on our conscious mind & for that reason the meme appears to be unidimensional (merely verbal for example)

the kinesthetic component: posture, gait, muscle spasm, repetitive hand movements, repetitive words or phrases (you know, sort of, cool, etc.)

there may be, as well, some supermemes or metamemes, such as dress code or speaking manner, whose function it is to place people in certain cultural categories or social hierarchies; of course, I get the ball rolling by, consciously or otherwise, placing myself in a specific category or hierarchy & then others follow & reinforce my own definition of myself

who knows

a little while ago I was walking outside & thinking about memes when someone walking a short distance behind sent me a meme/cookie by whistling we all live in a yellow submarine

well, maybe we do live in a yellow submarine after all...

I agree that all of what you mentioned could be included in the word 'meme'.

The wikepedia definition draws from Richard Dawkins work which includes him coining the term.

Wikpedia said that 'He gave as examples tunes, catch-phrases, beliefs, clothing fashions, ways of making pots, and the technology of building arches.'

Some memes are beneficial or useful and others, the ones destined for the Stargate, are considered non-useful. To me, memes can include affirmations of both useful or non-useful, but particularly those sayings or those kinesthetic ones, that are commonly shared across a cultural group or even the world. They have taken a life of their own until they flow into our thoughts or out of our mouths with nary an awareness that they may very well be untrue. If this was pointed out in a conversation where the memes are flying fast and furious, its likely one would get the look of 'what planet are you from, doesn't everyone know this?' lol

I add (only to head to Stargate 'deletion' lol) a verbal one: "When it rains, it pours"

And a kinesthetic one: The garb, walk, speech and look of a gangsta rapper. Even children, who have no idea of the origins of the items, are wearing the 'look'. I'm not saying its good or bad, however, it is a combination of elements that have nothing to do with the true Self, in my opinion. What ideas and energies are associated with them?

Thank you for your posts.

In Gratitude,

If I was limited to selecting only ONE beneficial meme to bring back through the stargate to install herehttp://www.freesmileys.org/emo/stargate001.gif (http://www.freesmileys.org) I would choose that everyone had the Knowing of their Greatness: Their

I AM


to FEEL it in your heart is to KNOW it = BELIEF

to FEEL the power of your I AM - it is all encompassing

I AM the I AM

I AM infinite potential, the powerful creator of my reality - of all things wonderful, joyful, abundant, playful & loving.



Love, Light & Blessings :angel:

Nonuseful Memes: line up for Stargate departure hut hut hut! :rofl:

"I never have enough...<insert lack>"

"The rich get richer and the poor get poorer, its just the way it is (ack!)" :rolleyes:

"Its a jungle out there, survival of the fittest"

"There's no hope...<insert situation>"

"Life's a b**ch and then you die" :rolleyes: or an alternate one "Life's a b**ch and then you marry one" :rofl: (though sometimes that's true 'I've heard' LOL) I tease! :D

"I never seem to get a break"

Bye bye memes that no longer serve!

Yep! Actually Stephen pointed it out to me the other day...

I had gone for a walk with my daughter who will be 14 in Nov., and we probably walked about 4.5 miles. We had planned on taking a walk that afternoon, but had not planned on taking it right then... it was just one of those things! :rolleyes: Because it was a spur of the moment thing I was wearing my knee high boots that are quite heavy, but comfy for normal wear. By the end of he walk I was soooo tired and my legs and feet had convinced somehow my whole body it should be tired and in pain too! :rofl: Later that night I was chatting with Stephen, and I made the statement that "I am SO out of SHAPE!"

What am I telling myself? I walk everyday, maybe not that far, but I go for a walk in the park everyday, and then I tell myself that I am out of shape? That is one Meme that needs to be blasted out of my life!

You know it is no wonder America is getting heavier and heavier each year! It is also no wonder that we start an excercise program and then quit after a short time before we reach our goals! Well I am now thinking I have to really watch what I say about what shape I am in, and any other thoughts I have pertaining to my weight and the way I look!

How bout keeping these. They're oldies, but goodies.

With God all things are posible.

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

My God shall supply all my needs, according to his riches in glory.

I am the head and not the tail.

Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

These are memes I need.

For sharing the memes that you have found useful to you!

Excuse my fogginess tonight, but may I ask what 'SOP' stands for in the title line of your post? I keep trying to figure it out but all that pops in my head is the vision of me lying on my pillow sleeping soundly :rofl:

In gratitude,

Hey Stephen,

That would be "standard operating procedure". My memory often is drawn to terms and events that at one time in my environment were commonplace and now have become antiquated. Thank God :notworthy: it still functions effectively.:rolleyes: The memory, that is.

Live clean and prosper,
