I am a realist and a dreamer, I live purely in the present while working toward my future, and appreciating all the experiences of my past. No regrets, just lessons, and completely fascinated by how circumstances and people are always connected. If we really want something, and work hard towards achieving it, there is a 50/50 chance if it will happen or not. If it does happen, then we enjoy our new present moment, and keep moving forward, we can never just stop, there cannot be just one thing, life has to be balanced. If it does not happen, then we reevaluate, see if something could have been done differently, or change our course all together. Yes of course we are human, and its is perfectly normal to have feelings of sadness, anger, disappointment, but then we must keep moving forward, because there could be something even better that we did not even imagine.
What does this all mean?
Whatever we decide is our reality.
Whatever we believe becomes our reality.
In Yoga class I tell everyone to get negative words and feelings our of their vocabulary, at least just for class, not so easy in life, but it would benefit us all in life too.
Instead of I can’t, I will try.
Instead of I am not good at this, I will do my best.
Instead of It is hard, it is challenging.
This article really makes sense to me, http://popchassid.com/no-snake/, there is no bad, there is no evil, there is no snake, unless you believe there is.
This was also so interesting how celebrities have become idols, and unfortunately masses follow destructive habits and attitudes, http://popchassid.com/time-kill-fan-culture/.
I loved these comments about the article above:
“Imagine a world like that. Where communities instead of rabid fanbases are built. Where friendships are forged instead of altars of worship to false idols. Where artistry isn’t seen as a privilege held by the few, but a way of life possessed by us all.
Then look around. And you’ll see it’s happening already.”
“An artist, when he accepts his true role as emotional resonator, becomes a friend, a comrade, and a leader. He art can transform from simple words or music to a community, a group of people who have realized that they resonate around the ideas or feelings this person is sharing with the world.
A community can do so much more than a fanbase ever will. It can inform the artist about his work, help it improve. It can inspire them, the very fans, to also become artists. It can spread not just emotion, but inspiration. And it can give agency to every fan to realize that they deserve to be heard just as much as the artist.
Imagine a world like that. Where communities instead of rabid fanbases are built. Where friendships are forged instead of altars of worship to false idols. Where artistry isn’t seen as a privilege held by the few, but a way of life possessed by us all.”
Do you create your own reality?
Or are you following your inside voices or perhaps outside influences?
