We create a life narrative for ourselves and use beings, things, and events to stage it.
Please discuss. How does this play out in life?
I’ll start us out. The quantum field of creation is a sea of energy responding to belief, thought, and intention. Out of it, the stuff of our physical reality is shaped. Sometimes our thoughts and aims are conscious ones and sometimes they’re not. Our conscious and unconscious thoughts and goals operate in the same way to generate our life events. Whether or not we’re aware of the fact, we continuously create our own reality. Our thoughts, which arise from our beliefs, shape our intentions. All of this is shared into the quantum field ongoing. In this way, what we believe determines what we experience day-to-day.
This truth can be hard to accept. It’s easy to understand why we would want to bring about our dreams. But why would we create the ugliness we encounter in life? Yet it is so. If we can manifest what we desire, we can also generate what we don’t want, as well.
What meaning and implication arises from this fact? As Ihaleakala Hew Len, the foremost proponent of the Hawaiian practice of ho’oponopono so clearly put it: “The purpose of life is to be restored back to Love, moment to moment. To fulfill this purpose, the individual must acknowledge he is 100 percent responsible for creating his life the way it is.” Shortly put, we alone own what we experience.
Today’s message reminds me of the responsibility I have for my life. If something is happening that I don’t like or want, I may wish to examine how/why my beliefs and thoughts support it, and then clear the conscious/unconscious memories that generate those beliefs and thoughts. When I release the control those memories have, I make energetic space for divine inspiration, or Love, to be the creative force in my life. I can choose the source material for my reality—replayed memories or fresh divine revelation.
How about you? How does your past narrative impact your life right now?
