I think about my siblings losing their mother at a young age, and how hard that was for them. I think of Abraham’s teachings that say we create our own reality.
How do we reconcile the two?
You might completely discount the idea of creating our own reality. That’s one choice.
We could say, “Shit happens. Our choice is how we respond to it." That’s another option.
It could be that on the river of life we occasionally run into boulders. Hitting that boulder tells us we need to change direction, or it tells us we have something to learn from the experience. “Don’t let it break you,” it says. “ Love yourself to life.”
It could be that we chose that experience before we were born.
But then, we didn’t know how much it would hurt. We didn’t know how vulnerable we would be. We didn’t know the ramifications of a mother’s death and how the family would change as a result of it. We didn’t have a crystal ball, we only knew some things, but then being born we forgot even the little we did know. And so we suffer. And now we want to kick anyone in the teeth who says, “You know, you create your own reality.”
This may be far-out for some readers.
It is a take on how some people think.
It is one of our many options.
For much of our life creating one’s own reality is a foreign concept. And if we do create our own reality, most of the time, it is unconscious creating, for we are often dashed against the rocks.
However, the belief that we create our own reality carries with it the understanding that we are not victims. If we do create our own reality, then, it follows that we can change it.
That rather makes the concept of creating one’s own reality more palatable, don’t you think?
”Everything is Energy
And that’s all there is to it.
Match the frequency of the reality you want,
and you cannot help but get that reality.
It can be no other way.
This is not philosophy.”
This is physics. “
