What allows you to determine and evaluate what has happened, what is happening and what will happen in your everyday experience of life, is your own mind.
Your recollections of what came before this moment are entirely mental in nature, they are selective memories you are calling up into your awareness. Your interpretations and judgements of what is happening right now are also entirely mind-made. Your anticipation of a future of any kind is also again based on objects of the mind.
Whether you are projecting a future of fulfillment or a future of unfulfillment, it is all still just you making pictures with your mind in this moment. Whatever the future scenario you’re looking at with your mind’s eye in this moment, it is one potential outcome out of many that you are right now tuning into, breathing life into and empowering.
The question is, are you empowering the outcomes you want to experience in this moment?
The first thing that overwhelms you about the future in any give moment is your own expectations of the future. What often preoccupies you about the future is not actually something happening in your immediate reality. It's not the events that have manifested in your experience causing you stress and turmoil. It is often the mental pictures your mind is coming up with as a reaction to what appears to have shown up, that you unquestioningly identify with and take to be real inevitable happenings.
When you begin to recognize this, it becomes easy for you to shift the power of your focus on the outcomes you desire to experience. Reality is not a closed loop. Reality as you experience it in a given moment is not a finished picture. Reality as you live it, is not final. The moment you allow for this recognition to emerge or re-emerge in your awareness, you will feel the lightness and openness that is always here for you to access. You will feel relaxation wash through all layers of your being.
Anytime you flow your energy into visualizing or imagining the outcomes you want to be experiencing, your body relaxes and whatever tension that was being created in your being because of your focus on the unwanted dissolves. Your body is constantly communicating to you the effect of your mental pictures.
The questions to ask yourself anytime you find yourself looking ahead into some future are:
- Do I recognize that this future that I see is something that I am making up right now in my mind?
- Am I willing to recognize that the future I imagine is just one possible future I’m choosing to imagine?
- And am I willing to picture the future I want to experience rather than the future I don’t want to experience?
It is all about you and where you are willing to take yourself through the power of your own mind, through the energies you activate and breathe life into moment after moment. The greatest power in your experience is your own consciousness. And in every moment you are either driving yourself in the direction of your desires or you are driving yourself toward unwanted experiences – in either case, you are the only one driving.
Choose to go in the direction of your desires, in thought, through the pictures you form in your mind, through your expectations and mental projections. Pay attention to what you are generating within yourself moment after moment and engage with yourself, question the stories your mind offers you. Recognize that your mind is not meant to lead you, rather you are designed to direct it so you end up receiving everything you desire and more.
