In Physics, a quantum leap can be defined as the discontinuous change of the state of an electron in an atom or molecule from one energy level to another. What this means is that the movement of an electron from one energy level to another is not gradual. After acquiring enough energy, the electron disappears in one level and reappears in another level. In other words, a quantum leap is a leap from A to B, without ever passing through any of the points between A and B…

 

Very peculiar indeed. Peculiar but not unique.

 

In Psychology, a mental pattern can be defined as an acquired set of behaviors we create to solve a problem and repeat because it has worked in the past. But this does not necessarily mean it will work in the future. In fact, as we develop, many mental patterns no longer suit us. Our environment changes. Our relationships change. Our needs change. But a mental pattern is like a bad habit. It just goes on.

 

Getting rid of unwanted mental patterns is easy, really. All we have to do is observe our motivations, our reactions, our story, over and over. In fact, it actually involves a gradual process of awareness and self-redefinition, in which the movement in awareness from one level to another is not gradual—at all. Please allow me to explain.

 

We start by observing a mental pattern. We observe its schemes. We observe its reactions. We observe the thoughts and emotions that comprise it. We observe and observe and observe, but nothing seems to change. We observe some more, still no change. More observation—no dice. The old pattern seems unbreakable, invincible.

 

But then one day we reach a critical point. Out of the blue, it seems, we’ve become lighter. A great burden has been lifted. There is a sudden perception—a major de-patterning perception. We are more detached from ourselves. Our field of vision broadens. We have acquired enough awareness, our subconscious disentangles itself from the mental pattern, and frees up attention as we move on to a higher level of consciousness.

 

Very peculiar indeed.

 

It is as if we are taken from point A to point B without ever passing through any of the points between A and B…
