By the way, neurolinguistic programming (NLP) is often used to program the brain, generally to achieve political or commercial aims. The brain gets rewired due to repetitive action with emotional charge ... it is NLP that taught us to overcome the natural instinct to avoid smoke and fire so that an industry selling cigarettes, etc. could be established and make money! Given this, it is important that we always be conscious in each moment and make conscious choices, otherwise this insidious "Borrowed Observer" just grows and morphs throughout our life.
“What you have done is that you believe someone’s lie, someone’s reality. You borrowed their Observer and you put it in your brain. And what was their Observer? It is called an opinion. Their opinion said, “Well, dream on, because I don’t believe in dreams. I believe you have to work every day for your daily bread. If you are a man, you have to work by the sweat of your brow and use your brain to unseat other men and always maintain power and control. If you are a woman, use your feminine prowess to keep the man in line who brings home the money so you can get what you want. You can never let your guard down.” Well, that is called the school of good etiquette. It is opinion. But in the dreaming brain it is attached to a neuronet that says, “You are not real. My arm is real, but you are not real.” So, we have the dream but we have a censor connected to it.”
