Is this your Reality?
Yet another conversation with the Comedian has inspired me today. You know its a beautiful thing in a relationship when conversations spark a stream of creativity. We have discussed in the past, other people's realities. It's not easy to explain but when you become conscious by living in the present, the remedial things like gossip and drama that other people might emphasize don't matter to you. In all honesty, I had some situations where I became bothered by someone else's reality. You really just want to enjoy each moment as beautiful as it is. When poison starts interrupting those moments, you become distracted and the goal is to get back to where you were.
I remembered, in watching The Secret, they mentioned that sometimes when you wake on the wrong side of the bed in the morning, it might create a whole day of negative energy but in reality as soon as you feel like you're going in that direction, you have every right to change your mood around. Only you are in charge of your emotions and your surroundings. That includes those who surround yourself with. Another interesting book I've been reading, The 4-Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferriss, touches on the idea that the 5 closest people closest to you are a reflection of who you are. It's been a long road, but I can honestly say that true with those very close to me.
I am reminded that everyone has their own reality and we are not one to change those realities. We are to just accept them and only control our own destiny. This past Sunday's sermon, Joel Osteen said, "Nothing you have done has canceled your destiny." God still has a plan for you. It is your choice to listen. If we want to live in a reality that fogs our vision to who we really want to become then we might not get there. The way my life has changed in the last 9 months, I want to continue to choose a path of positive enlightenment. What about you?
