How Freedom of Choice Highlights My Belief in Limitation

And what I might choose to do with that freedom!

I flip through the channels on my TV and find something that interests me. When I click the button on my remote control, voila! – I experience the result of my choice in the presentation on the TV.

Precognition Belief and Happiness

According to a scientific report, precognition not only exists, but you’ve got it in spades!

A report in open access journal PLOS ONE by Katharine Greenaway and colleagues from the University of Queensland, Australia, says that if you believe my opening statement, you’re far more likely to feel more in control of your life. Folks who feel more in control of their lives tend to feel more positive about their lives and tend to be happier for it.

It really doesn’t matter whether the ability to foresee the future exists – only that you consider BELIEVING it could exist – to gain benefit. That’s right – you don’t even have to believe in the phenomenon – just consider that it COULD exist – especially thinking you might have it – is enough to elevate mood and a sense of personal control.

A constrained belief does not necessarily expand our consideration of possibility, nor does semi-belief fully support probability. Rather, absolute belief may deny “understanding” causality by holding potential prisoner to limitation. And happiness cannot exist in the solid belief in limitation… only those limits that satisfy fear of limits.
