So what’s your reality? In my experience, Basset Hounds don’t fly – but does that mean they can’t?
Is the glass half full, or half empty? Are you a victim of life, or a creator of your experience? Do you make things happen, or does everything happen to you?
Nicki and I are strong believers in the concept of “manifestation”. This is A largely Buddhist concept, the basic premise being that humans – by their thoughts and intentions – gradually shape their experience and environment to their will. And while we’re not Buddhists by any stretch, we’ve both had enough experiences of dearly held desires becoming our reality to feel that we better be pretty careful what we wish for.
And conversely, if I get into a negative frame of mind (yeah, that happens!), it’s amazing and frightening what painful, unsettling and downright unpleasant experiences I can create if I try. It works both ways.
Now, if you’re thinking this is all hooey and voodoo, you might find a quick introduction to Quantum Physics intriguing. I’d recommend the movie What the Bleep Do We Know?” (That’s a link to a 4-minute trailer). The movie itself is entertaining, enlightening, and thought-provoking.
Or you might decide it’s a load of crap, or just too confusing, or it might offend your sense of order or your religious beliefs or the gut need you have to know that everything is pre-ordained and beyond your control. That’s ok too.
After all, you’re creating your reality right now. But if I might make one suggestion?
Make it a good reality.
Life’s too short to write yourself into a bad novel.
