Life is interactive.
It is a two way street.
If you wake up in the morning in a bad mood, all you see in your day is the stuff that angers and irritates you- the good stuff does not touch you.
If you wake up in a good mood, you see only joy and the bad stuff runs off you like water off a ducks back.
It is not that you are creating Reality- Reality is Reality. It is that you are creating YOUR reality.
You buy a new car and suddenly you see the make and model everywhere. You didn’t notice it before. Now you do because you are aware, because you made a conscious choice.
The signals from the world, from the Universe, are always the same. There has always been this number of Range Rovers around- the question is ‘Why did you not notice?’
If the signal from the world, from the Universe, is always the same, why do you notice some things and ignore others?
It is all there to be felt, seen, heard and touched, why are you missing the bits you are missing?
I believe it is about conscious choice and intention.
Before I get into that, I want to explain an idea that may make it clearer to understand.
An Ocean of Waves
Science tells us that every atom in the universe has a vibration. As it vibrates it sends out endless waves into the space. So in truth, the Universe is a massive ocean of waves.
When we picture this idea we assume for the most part that it is the atoms creating the waves- I think this is true, but only PART of the story. Because waves also create the atoms. Reality is interactive, a two way street.
The environment around you plays as much a part in creating you as you do in creating the environment. You create a living space at home that is calm and relaxing. That calm and relaxing space in turn calms
and relaxes you.
Your enthusiasm for a subject makes others enthusiastic which loops back to you and feeds your passion.
The more I look at life, the more I see this two way street. Nothing is in isolation, everything is connected.
Science tells us this connection is generated by waves. Waves interact- if the waves are in sync you feel a harmonious connection. When out of sync you feel discord and disharmony. You are always connected. You are always interacting.
As conscious beings we have free choice. We have the freedom to choose our thoughts and intentions. In short, we are able to influence the waves we generate and send out into the world.
When your waves interact with the waves of the world around you, you feel harmony or discord depending on your environment.
So, when you give out the waves of a bad mood, you inadvertently draw your attention to things that are harmonious to this bad mood. Good mood vibrations irritate you because they are not harmonious with your bad mood vibration. Your bad mood deepens!
To change this cyclic state of affairs requires conscious choice from you- actively choose a good mood.
Discover the things that bring you joy and create a relationship and connection to them that you can access whenever you need to. Build and cultivate the connections in your mind, body and spirit that will make it easier over time to feel joy over fear and contentment over discord. Experiment with it.
It requires consistent effort because the nature of the universe is fluid- it’s shape and form will change very fast in any direction as long as the intention is strong and consistent enough to influence the waves within and around you.
Gandhi said ‘Be the change you want to see in the world’. I believe what he meant by that in the context of waves, vibration and science is that by giving off the vibration of joy, peace and love your waves will interact with people’s vibrations of joy, peace and love, amplify them and bring that into consciousness. In turn they will feed it back to you in an ever growing loop.
Yes, choose your environment and the people you interact with carefully- they influence your being and your vibration. Also, manage your vibration, your intention, your conscious thoughts and notice the impact it has on your environment and the people in your life. You can choose to create a better life and a better world. The science points us to this truth that sages, masters and teachers have told us across space and time- that life is an interactive experience, a two way street.
