I was talking with my friend and one of the teachers of The Daily Love Writer’s Mastermind – her name is Kelly.
She is a total rockstar editor and spiritual warrior.
We were talking at Yogabarn in Ubud yesterday and she said to me, “If you look around, everything is a thought form.”
When she said this, it set my head spinning.
As I sit and write this blog looking out into a rice field, I can see that each beautiful rice plant was planted because of a thought.
The shape of the field was a thought.
The water conduit was a thought, and the Hindu Temple in the middle of the field was a thought.
Then I started thinking about my own life.
The shape of my body is a result of thoughts.
My haircut was a thought. The Apple laptop I type on was a thought and it was a thought that decided to buy it.
Even typing this blog, each and every word – is a thought.
Today, as I look out into the world, I don’t just see the world, I see collective thought forms and decisions.
The color of a soda can. The price of gas. My breakfast.
So many thoughts went into the creation of each of these things.
I’ll be honest, I know this all sounds pretty “woo woo” – but for the last day I feel like I’ve been walking around in the Matrix.
The consequences of this to me are staggering.
If the world is just a bunch of collective thought forms of others, that means that your thought forms can affect the world too.
I’ve come to believe that the power of your will is stronger than reality. Reality is malleable substance that can change over time. And as you gain more and more power, the outside world can change faster and faster.
I think one of the true tragedies of the human experience is when someone believes that their circumstance is their identity.
That is to say that the way life is now is how it’s always going to be and that who you are can never change.
But, my friend – nothing is further from the truth. Your life can change no matter what’s happened up until now.
The past doesn’t have to be your future unless you focus on the past and keep acting the same way.
The journey is to take one small step, change one thought at a time – bring your thoughts and your actions round to the world you WISH to create.
Don’t focus just on how things are – focus on how you want them to be and then get about making life the way you want it to be.
Your life today is the sum of all the choices you’ve made up until now – what your life will be is determined by the choices you make from this moment forward.
What’ll it be?
