I feel it is extremely important at this time in our journey to really grasp and make a part of our everyday life, the act of consciously creating. I keep talking about how our thoughts create our reality, but they are just words unless we grasp the true meaning of what that really means. I read a quote by Dee Wallace the actress, and it really explains it clearly: “To consciously create means to choose each thought that supports the choice of life we want.” We can’t get to where we want to be without getting our hands dirty and rolling up our sleeves. It takes work initially to choose our thoughts carefully and pay attention to what we are thinking, but after a short period of time the process becomes automatic. If we want a loving world of joy and peace we must choose the thoughts we think that will support that desire. We must think only loving thoughts, we must be happy and we must be peaceful in our actions. Our thoughts and actions must mirror one another in order for us to consciously create what we dream about.
Think of all the fear in the world right now yet we seem surprised at the state the world is in. It should come as no surprise at all. It is mirroring our thoughts and actions and our thoughts and actions are obviously not loving and happy and peaceful. From the moment we wake up in the morning until the minute we float away into sleep we must remain vigilant of our thoughts and actions at all times. Before we speak or act we should always ask “Is what I am about to say or do going to make the world a better place?” If not, zip your lips and stay silent and do not act. As with everything in life the choice is ours to make. think of all the people running around in the world that have no control of their ego, their thoughts or their actions! There are many and this is why it is so important for those of us awake to balance out this world as best we can by how we think and act.
I believe honesty is a huge factor in consciously creating as well, especially with ourselves. We can’t desire peace in our world if we are not willing to admit we are not peaceful within and change it. Denial will get us nowhere except deeper in the hole. Learn to be honest with yourself and what you are truly feeling. For a long time when people in passing would say Hi, how are you doing? I would always answer fine or good even though that may not have been true. If we can be dishonest with ourselves we can be dishonest with the world. I bet we all have little white lies we tell throughout our day. Every time we do this we are putting dishonest energy out into the world thereby halting our ability to consciously create an honest world. Up until now we haven’t thought much about these actions, but we must! We reap what we sow.
We need to look into every nook and cranny of our lives and clear out the small moments of bad actions and thoughts if we are to create a loving, honest world. Things we must stop doing are often so small we don’t even think about what we are doing. Perhaps your husband comes home from work and says let’s go eat Chinese tonight and you say okay but you really don’t feel like Chinese food. Why have you just failed to be honest yet again no matter how small or insignificant it may seem? We must speak truth at all times for that is the foundation of our self-esteem. Being able to stand up for ourselves and what we think and feel. If you don’t feel like Chinese food then say that! Be honest about yourself and your world, show yourself you matter and stand behind that.
The dangers of living on autopilot these days are a strong reflection of what is going on in the world. We speak without thinking, we are not honest with ourselves and don’t even realize it, our thoughts and actions often do not mirror one another. We are in the mess we are in today because we did not pay attention to how we were living our lives! As long as we got up everyday and went to work and raised our kids, that was all that was required of us in our minds. Sadly nothing could be further from the truth. We must pay attention to EVERY detail, disconnect from ego and make the supreme effort to choose carefully our thoughts, mirror them with right action and stay alert to our lives. Until we all begin to live this way, the dream of freedom and a loving new world will remain just that, a dream.
Blessings to us all,
