“Let your mind be cleared of all the foolish cobwebs which the world would weave.”—A Course in Miracles
Let me guess. You probably watched some TV show last night—maybe the season finale of “The Good Wife” or “Game of Thrones” or one of the other hot shows that TV execs like to run on Sunday night. According to Nielsen, an average of 124.2 million viewers tune in Sunday prime-time. That’s a lot of eyes.
Whatever you watched, you didn’t for a moment believe it was factual information. You knew the story you sat glued to was the creation of some evil genius scriptwriter. You might cringe at Tyrion being set up by his sister or sigh over Alicia Florrick’s latest lawsuit, but you knew the moment you turned the TV off, it was basically irrelevant to your life.
That’s how I view most of what the world calls “reality.” It’s made-up. It’s a mental construct that was created not by a scriptwriter, but by a world gone mad. This dominant paradigm that we call “reality” has gone unquestioned for far too long. The “news” that we so worry about is no more real than “Game of Thrones.”
We only THINK we’re bound and gagged by the world’s reality.
It’s not real, people, and, at any time, we can suspend our investment in these fictional stories of separation and problems and dysfunction. It’s up to us to create a more joyful reality. It’s all a matter of where we focus our attention.
We draw from the field of infinite potentiality carbon copies of what we expect and believe. I expect and believe that “something amazingly awesome” will happen to me each day. So, of course, it always does.
Expectations and beliefs are powerful. They also create “reality.”
Tell me in the comment sections below, “What are you willing to believe is possible for yourself and for the world?”
