Contrary to appearances we don’t download a preexisting reality—we create it.
Well, to be more precise, we co-create it.
By “co-create,” I don’t mean we’re dealt our cards in life and we have options of how to react.
I mean that within our cards, including the bad ones, is our creative power!
Most psychology, personal growth, and spiritual systems tell us that the troublesome fates in our lives—depression, anxiety, etc.—are our lower/inferior selves that we need to rise above.
This is incorrect: Our problems ARE our personal growth and spirituality!
They contain everything we strive for—awareness, wellness, spirit, success, and meaning…IF we learn how to process them.
If we don’t, and instead choose to pathologize, judge, avoid, and suppress them, we miss their uplifting transformative message.
Choose a problem to focus on.
Think of how it victimizes you.
Then put it aside, step outside yourself, and imagine you’re a mischievously, creative force / spirit / intelligence that has the power to give someone a problem in order to wake them up about something, convey a lesson, and push them to grow in some way.
Be this figure, get into its mind, and sense / intuit / imagine / observe why you’re giving your everyday self this specific issue.
What do you want him / her to learn?
How do you want him / her to change and grow?
Don’t be yourself for a moment; be a creative spirit and give yourself this problem.
Tell yourself why you’re doing it.
Then identify what stops you from making this change.
Instead of being victimized by your creative power, BE it.
Rock yer day!
