Thinking Up A New Reality
Author: Richard Blackstone
Our spiritual growth has brought us to a point where we know we are creating our reality as we go along. Let us use this spirituality information to think up a reality that serves us and all of humanity.
This article is called "Thinking Up A New Reality"' so we are going to shake up our thinking here a bit. We are going to change the way we are thinking and think different thoughts. Let's get in the same league as Albert Einstein and make him proud. What the heck, let's make ourselves proud. All it takes is a thought of pride. Is that a different thought than you have been thinking?
Forward, onward, don't look back because that is what your ego wants you to do. The ego rules your past, the sacred self rules the present moment.
Whenever I think about the ego, I always come up with this visualization of a person who is trying to make a decision and there is a miniature version of that person on one shoulder dressed up as the devil and a miniature version of the person on the other shoulder dressed up as an angel.
The little devil image is pushing the person to do what he knows is not in his best interest, while the little angel image is reminding the person what the more altruistic choice would be. The way we have structured our society has allowed us to "cheer on" the little devil. We basically scoff at the goodie two-shoes angel figure and side with the character giving us bad advice.
When we make a decision that does not serve us we usually say that "the devil made me do it" and just laugh it away as something that we had no choice over. But wait a minute. That's not being very honest with ourselves. We did have choice. Remember the "angel" figure on the other shoulder? We could have listened to this voice just as easily as we listened to the "little devil" voice. It's all a matter of choice.
What is it that makes us choose to give the "little devil," the ego, more say in the affairs of our lives than the valid perspective of the "little angel," our sacred self?
Think about that. Remember, we are thinking up a new reality.
Does it serve us to listen to the ego? In my experience of life it rarely serves me. Sometimes, in the short-term, I will see some benefits come my way that seem to fulfill an immediate need, but when that short-term need is fulfilled the ego wants more. Then, as time goes by, the short-term gratification that came from satisfying my ego is replaced by a realization that my long-term intentions and desires were subverted by the short-term gain. One step forward, two steps back.
Wait a minute. Didn't we just say that we're not going to look back? Let's keep moving forward. One step at a time in the present moment of now.
So where does this ego belong on the spectrum of our belief system? We have revealed to ourselves that there are two paradigms of belief that are available to us. One paradigm says that we are separate from each other, separate from all the physical things that make up the universe and separate from God. The other paradigm says that we are one with all people, one with everything that exists and one with God.
All of our ego-based choices are designed to make us think we are separate beings who have to fend for ourselves because "it's a jungle out there" and the best way to take care of yourself is to believe in the law of "the survival of the fittest."
Remember, we are here in the realm of the physical universe for a purpose. Our mission is to experience life in all of its different perspectives in order for God to know, through our experiences, all that she knows of as concepts. That is the purpose of our existence.
Let us begin the process of creating the "experience" of "thinking up a new reality."
