To live the life we desire does not mean we remove ourselves from our current life. To use the power of our imagination is to feel as though our new life is about us, it is our current reality. To simply accept our current reality is to be a slave to external events, what others say and do. If our desired life is to live next to the water and we are currently living in a friend’s basement, we need to feel as though we are next to the water. Imagine opening the French doors to our bedroom and smelling the saltiness of the sea air, to hear the rush of water hitting the sand. We do not need to be there to feel this reality. Talk about it to others… if they will let you. Act as if it is your current reality and mountains will begin to move. In fact, it is as easy to go from the basement to ocean front as it is to go from a B-Lot to ocean front. In some cases it gets harder, the closer one is to achieving their dream, because good can be the enemy of great. We will have friends tell us, “oh you have it so good”. You do not want good, you want perfect, and you can have it, but you must persist without exception.
The easiest mental activity in all of existence is doubt. We have been socially conditioned from a small child in all the things we cannot do. Do not misinterpret my point, discipline is for the child. I am talking about boundaries based in fear. “You cannot play next to the street because… you cannot whatever because”. If you hear your parents say, “because I said so” you are starting in the basement of life, it is merely a fact. Do not be disappointed, because one can go to any state of being, from where they are to where they desire very quickly, depending on ones ability to accept thier desired future as now. Our thoughts become things. It takes the same amount of faith to move a ball-point pen as it does a mountain. The handicap for children raised in “because I said so” households, is the ability to cast this limited thinking that haunts us to the curb quickly and without regret. If you are already saying its too hard, I cannot forget the direction of my upbringing, nor do I want to, remember a house cat can eat an elephant, it just takes a long time. It is worth the work, but better yet, it is not work. To accept your desired life as now, to feel as it is, just means letting go of the past. The past made us who we are, this is true, but it has no bearing on whom we wish to be now. After all, past and future events are mental illusions, because we have to presently think of them. Choose to think on your current desires, not your past. Do not become lost in a future state, feel your future now. Presence is where the power is… never forget that.

Average person seeking more meaning in life. I was raised in a faith that unknowingly taught, seek your religion in all things, but as I grew up and started to better understand the relationship I have with the creator of this universe and the source of all conscienceless, I decided to seek the creator in all things. Not a man or a woman, not a right or a wrong, but the thing that hold all subatomic particles together, the energy that connects everything. This is the story of some of my revelations along the journey we call life.
