Don’t buy your diagnosis
“Reality is so vast that there is no way from our small place in the universe to see it all. We create cultural constructs of our knowledge and try and make the whole vast infinite universe fit in our tiny little boxes.”
― Lyssa Danehy deHart
Whatever affliction you believe about yourself is a hoax. It’s a tiny box that you continue to animate by your belief in it.
I know it seems like stone-cold fact that you are depressed or financially challenged or still suffering the aftermath of something your parent did or didn’t do.
But it’s just not true.
It seems true because you’ve collapsed the wave of that reality. In the quantum world, the observer (that’s you expecting and believing things are a certain way) interacts with all the possible superpositions (the world’s unlimited possibilities). Once you collapse the wave (the particular state or affliction you’ve been colluding with), all other possibilities vanish. As you feed those thoughts, that one reality grows more and more solid.
So if you really insist on believing in your affliction, just make sure to couch it like this:
I am temporarily having thoughts about being depressed. Or being poor. Or_________________.
And know those thoughts are one tiny possibility and that there are even more superpositions (possibilities) where you are ecstatically happy and financially secure and completely free from anything at all that occurred in your past.
The superposition you feed with your attention is the one you will animate into your life.
So which wave do you choose to collapse today: That you’re a hot mess? Or that you’re hot shit?
