We create our own realities, whether we are conscious of it or not. Most of us are unaware of the power of our thoughts and so react to life on "auto-pilot", and therfore create "unconsciously". When we become aware that it is our thoughts that create our reality, we can then consciously choose different thoughts, therefore creating a different reality - this is called "creating consciously". We are the creators of our own life. If we don't like what we have created, we can simply choose to change our thoughts to create a new reality for ourselves - we are more powerful than we realise. We are souls on an evolutionary path, here to experience all that life has to offer - whether it be pain or joy. We choose our pains and our sorrows.
While this concept is now becoming more widely accepted, there are still many out there who will say indignantly, "I did not choose this reality for myself. I would be mad, stupid or both!"
I know that feeling well. I used to wonder why I have created this reality for myself! But I am on the road to find out. I now take full responsibility. The newly released film, 'What The Bleep Do We Know!?' explains the concept of creating our own realities very well. I highly recommend it to you.
We create our realities, whether it be pain or joy, by our self-beliefs. When we understand this, it moves us out of 'victim' and 'blame' role' and into the role of 'Authentic Power', and Creating Consciously, because these experiences, which are simply just 'mirrors' of our beliefs made manifest for us to look at (without judgement), give us the opportunity to learn the lesson in it and change (if we choose).
Simply put.... Change your thoughts and you change your reality. You can continue to create unconsciously, or you can become a Conscious Creator - the choice is always up to you!
"You take your life in your own hands, and what happens?
A terrible thing: no one to blame."
~ Erica Jong ~
"I am the perpetrator of my suffering
- but only all of it."
~ Byron Katie ~
"When you assume responsibility for what you experience
and share what you experience in a spirit of companionship,
that is the same as forgiveness.
When you hold someone responsible for what you experience,
you lose power."
From 'The Seat Of The Soul' by Gary Zukav
"Act is the blossom of thought,
and joy and suffering are its fruits."
~ James Allen, (1864 -1912) - Author of 'As A Man Thinketh' ~
