“Be careful what you wish for, you may get it” is an ancient saying, with equivalents all over the world. I believe we all create our own reality, all the time.
Neale Donald Walsh aptly summarized that we have three choices: to let our subconscious create our reality, to subscribe to the group realities of whichever groups we happen to class ourselves with, or to take control and actively create our own reality on a conscious basis. I believe we should be conscious that there is a fourth choice; which is for a group of active, conscious creators to come together and consciously create a group reality together.
The true power and ability of our minds is an esoteric subject. Most of us have heard homilies all our lives, such as “attitude is the key to success” and similar sentiments. When we realize the powerful truth contained in these statements, there really are no limits to our creative powers.
While I am not religious, I do believe that Jesus was a fully conscious human being and that he was trying to wake up humanity to our full potential over 2000 years ago. He sought to remove the blinders created by centuries of dogmatic adherence to tradition.
The message that Jesus, the Buddha, and many others throughout history have brought to the world is that we, each one of us, have the power ourselves to create our own versions of heaven or hell, and that we truly possess the abilities of mind over matter.
“I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.”
– John 14:14 NIV Bible
As we become conscious of our own power, we can choose what kind of reality we actually want to create. Released from limitations, with the knowledge that anything is possible, we will begin to create some newly spectacular experiences for ourselves. The only limitations of our creative power are the limits we imagine, thereby actually creating those limits for ourselves. Throughout this book we will be learning to stretch our imaginations.
There have been several studies done that reveal the effect of belief, faith, and intent. Many studies have been made on the power of faith and/or prayer in helping the sick to heal. There is a study documenting what effect teachers’ expectations have on their students’ success. In other demonstrations, practitioners of TM-Sidhi have meditated on affecting various areas and have actually caused crime rates and other unwanted variables such as car accidents in those cities to drop. This is called the Maharishi Effect.
Looking to anyone else’s experience can not be a guide for our own unless we know truly all the thoughts and patterns that such person has in their own mind.
While we can see the results of some scientific experiments, ultimately, reality creation is a deeply personal experience and can only be proven conclusively on an experiential basis, through faith and honest experimentation. This book is a guide for making such an experiment in your own life.
Although we share a reality which allows us to communicate; for example, we can agree that “this object is a tree, that object is a fence, etc.” ultimately we each have our own reality bubble. The reality of a stockbroker on Wall Street is immensely different from that of a football player, which differs from a disabled homeless person, which differs from a supermarket cashier… and on and on.
We are all on our journey of developing and expressing the divinity within. In this volume, I will share my personal experiences of creating reality and the processes that have helped me. I hope this will help you to awaken more fully to your divine nature.
“On the chance that the mind can control the body and other material objects in some esoteric fashion… is the idea any more marvelous than the fact that you can cause your hand to scratch your head? We haven’t any more idea of the actual workings of volition on matter in one case than in the other.”
– R. A. Heinlein, “Lost Legacy”
“Physical Science has resolved matter into molecules, molecules into atoms, atoms into energy, and it has remained for Sir Ambrose Fleming, in an address before the Royal Institution, to resolve this energy into mind. He says: “In its ultimate essence, energy may be incomprehensible to us except as an exhibition of the direct operation of that which we call Mind or Will.”
“Every thought is a cause, and every condition an effect; for this reason it is absolutely essential that you control your thoughts so as to bring forth only desirable conditions.”
“The world within is the cause, the world without, the effect, to change the effect you must change the cause. You will at once see that this is a radically new and different idea; most men try to change effects by working with effects. They fail to see that this is simply changing one form of distress for another.”
– Charles Haanel “The Master Key System”
We have all our lives been taught that an action (x) will likely cause a reaction (y) to happen, but up until very recently science left out studying the most important part of the equation; the effect that consciousness plays. Now quantum physics has demonstrated that expectations play a role in any experiment.
The tools of science aren’t very well-suited (yet) to make inclusion of the scientists’ beliefs, thoughts and expectations to the scientific data collected, but there are ways we can infer at least some of their thoughts and biases by showing conflicting studies of the same subject. Bottom line, what holds true is something told to humanity long, long ago: “Seek and ye shall find, ask and ye will be answered, knock and the door will open.”
I contend that we create our own reality all the time. This applies to all factors of our experience, including such concepts as ‘natural laws’. Eventually, when we have developed our own powers, individually and as a species, we too will be able to do such miraculous things as walk on water, turn water into wine, and even conquer death itself. Everything and anything that our imagination can conceive we can achieve – limitlessly and effortlessly.
In order to experience the causality of yourself, you perhaps would like some tools, which is why you brought this book into your life. Even more important, begin using the assumption that maybe, just maybe, you do create your own reality.
“Alicelaughed. ‘There’s no use trying,’ she said: ‘one can’t believe impossible things.’
‘I dare say you haven’t had much practice,’ said the White Queen. ‘When I was your age I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve been able to believe as many as six impossible things before breakfast!’ ”
Lewis Carroll “Through the Looking Glass”
