What is the Difference Between 1 and 0?
By Wallace Huey, Director of Training at Trans4mind
1 is something. 0 is no thing. 1 is the material world. 0 is the spiritual world. 1 is mind. 0 is superconsciousness.
How do I know?
Imagine if one day you were walking through a city park thinking your everyday thoughts. These thoughts let you know that you existed. You were "inside" your body thinking. You were the thinker. The park and all of nature was "outside" your body and was all of the known world. Then all of a sudden "you" disappeared. Where you went to was not at all clear. And the world was no longer "outside" because there was no "inside". 1 existence had become 0 non-existence - yet existence was still present. Indeed Presence was all there - everywhere.
This is what happened to me when I was 39 years of age. This experience was my second birth experience. My first birth experience was my physical birth. This, my second birth experience, was my spiritual birth.
Then arising within that presence were sentences so powerful in their impulse to be expressed that I wanted to shout them out. But one does not shout out sentences in a public park readily. So I walked home, sat in a chair and made myself a cup of tea. Still these sentences persisted.
So I resolved to write them down. I adjourned to my study and wrote down those sentences that had arrived so mysteriously and powerfully. After I had written them down I did not know what to do, so I rang a friend. He asked me to read them out. When I had finished he said, "That sounds like a very powerful start to a book."
After that every morning I went for a walk in that same park and every time I returned home and put my key in the door, I knew exactly what to write. This pattern continued for months and is how most of my book, Unfold Your Wings and Watch Life Take Off was written.
As the book progressed I realised it was a book written about living from inner guidance. And interestingly the inspiration to start the book and impetus to continue all came through inner guidance itself!
So 1 became 0 and then became 1 again in the form of a book!
All creativity, all truly original work comes from the no thing place. The no thing from where, magically through some human scale Big Bang moment, that person's unknown universe is expressed and made manifest.
That book changed my life. I continued to work on it as I moved to Dublin and married Carolyn, my soul mate.
The book is about taking you on a journey from 1 to 0. And then from 0 to 1 as you are in turn inspired to create what the world needs now. Unfold Your Wings and Watch Life Take Off will take you from from some thing to no thing, from limitation to freedom, and from scarcity to true abundance. If the book speaks to your heart, if it awakens a part of you long lain dormant, do write and let me know.
