The Universe: it’s a dance of energy, made of thought, atomic structures and star dust. Personally, I feel that reality is as benevolent or malevolent as we all affirm it to be. Indeed, we finally are in the driver seat although outcomes and realities sometimes take a lot of time, energy and “mystery” to appear. What I mean by “puzzle” is as follows: We all have the exact materials to use in reality which are thought, activity, creation, matter, energy, space, and time. Even though some may agree or disagree with me, everything in existence is made from these fundamental and realistic construction blocks.
Reality in itself can be controlled then, for the force we create within ourselves ultimately is stronger than the forces I said and that force is finally consciousness. Without understanding, everything is asleep to higher chances. Without consciousness, choices cannot be made, character defaults fully.
I mention this edition of the chair of the driver to tell you that consciousness is the power of nature that controls reality, and however chaotic or disjointed it may look. Like a flight plan you may go off course from time to time, however you will always make your destination if you go toward it, making adjustments and keeping track all the while. In the case of the mentioned reality, results are significant, not how you get there, unless you do something illegal, destructive or worst.
Life is a value decision. And we must live up to the name first in our spirits, then in our minds, and in physical reality.
Stick the money where the mouth is at all levels because to get anything done, you really need to act on those amounts. Existence is as good or bad as we allow it to be bad or good. I recall this George Orwell book called “Animal Farm” and that I just have to mention this: When we allow permanent failure to overtake us give up, we also give up our chance to genuinely succeed. If we are persistent and practice persistence, rather than quit. We wind up great or excellent.
To end on an Earl Nightingale note: We are what we think about all of the time anyway.
