The New Faith
What if every thought you had impacted and created the physical world you live in? What if every word you spoke and belief you embraced sent a message to the Universe/Creation/God-spirit that defined the reality you choose to surround you? If you had that power could you handle and control it? Would you believe you were worthy of it? Well, all these things are true, we do create our lives, the world we live in. Our reality is a reflection of our thoughts, words and beliefs and is radiated from within us. Awesome power isnt it? Then why, you may say, is the world like it is? Why is there negativity, fear, un-saftey? Are we not taught from birth that we are not in control, are victims of whatever circumstances befall us and whatever happens...happens--that the world is an unsafe place, that love, even of our parents, is conditional? If we are a member of most western religions we are taught that God is an all- powerful being and we are unworthy (sinners in some religions), that we do not create our world. If we believe the world is unsafe, that life is a struggle, it will be. If we believe we are victims and unworthy, we will be. If our thought habits (belief systems) are steeped in unworthiness, failure, powerlessness, defeat, want, misery or poverty we will create these things in our lives. Yet looking at the origins of our religions, there was, at their core, an individual, one-on-one relationship between soul and spirit--man/woman and creation. That relationship is what we must seek and utilize to empower and create our lives. Standing in a house of worship, and reciting words from a book, in unison, written by who-knows-who strips us of our individuality, uniqueness and our personal relationship with Creation, and that is the environment in which many of us pray and visualize. But beyond religion, it is our entire belief system, every nuance of our thoughts, every word we speak-- that the universe hears and delivers to us. That awesome power requires us to assess our belief systems to align with our true soul-desires, to align our thoughts and words to be consistent with the reality we really want. Can you handle it?
The difficulty lies in changing our belief systems--a denial of years, generations, of being told the world is unsafe, of the thought patterns and habits we have acquired. It almost requires a denial of our 3rd dimensional, physical selves to embrace the belief that the world is unsafe because we believe it is such and that we are safe if we truly believe we are. It is the exact opposite of what we have been taught--that we must adjust to the reality that surrounds us and expect the unexpected--that anything can happen. This accomplishment has in fact changed the lives of many--and if embraced as a part of our collective/mass consciousness would, and to an extent does, change events in the world. Still, we must decide if we really want the world to change--to be better. Are we so familiar with the tension of un-saftey, illness, negativity, pain, war, aging, that we essentially are content to live our lives surrounded by them? Are all these beliefs so habitual that we will be unable to change them? Have we come here to this plane of existence to experience, or play with, these things in our lives to see what it feels like? It is our choice, and once we truly realize it is our choice, and that we must take responsibility for everything that happens in our lives, in our world, we will have the power to access what we really want, and create it.
