Choose Wisely… Your Thoughts Create Your Reality!

Topics: , , ,

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...

  • The original Star Trek series had a memorable episode in which the Enterprise visited a planet that allowed anything a person thought of to manifest. The planet was supposed to be used for entertainment purposes, but the unsuspecting Enterprise crew didn’t know their thoughts were creating their reality — and so suffered accordingly.

    What a perfect metaphor for our world!

    Human beings are creators and this world is our medium. We were created to create and we do so all the time, whether we are aware of it or not. There’s an old saying, “Our creativity is our gift from God, and what we do with it is our gift back to God.”

    Will we choose to create love, forgiveness, health, joy, kindness, prosperity, and peace? Energy does follow thought.

    Another Hollywood project that spoke to me was the movie Flatliners, about near-death experiences. Its message was that every single thing we do matters. Everything we think, feel, say, do… everything. And it does, because we are creators.

    That said, we are part of a greater whole, and what I believe is lacking in “The Secret Power of Intention and Visualization in the Now” school of popular thought is the understanding that life isn’t about us, but we are about life. This is the message I try to convey.

    What we create must serve the greater good and not just our own desires. But are we wise enough to know what’s best for the greater good? There comes a point in our existence where we must surrender to that higher power that created us. Then, and only then, does our own creative will work in harmony with Divine will and fulfill our purpose as indispensable threads in that magnificent tapestry that is creation.

    One of the dilemmas I struggled with most of my life was how to know God’s will. What was God’s will for me? What was God’s will for creation? One day it came to me: God’s will for us is God.

    Whatever leads us and others to divinity is what the Divine wills. It all seems so simple now. So, that’s what I am striving to create in everything I do.
