Imagine, if you will, if we were all, as I’ve heard it once described, True Creative Essence total immersion reading the story of [me… fill in the blank]. Would we live our lives differently?
Would we step outside ourselves and look at our lives as though it were a movie? Would we be able to view our lives as though it were nothing other than just a story?
It’s hard to think that we could. It’s hard to think that our lives are so menial, but perhaps it would make everything easier to think that it is all a story, and we are just a small piece of a bigger picture playing a role that was already written.
Are our lives scripted? Is it all just an illusion as many religions believe? I like to think it is. It certainly makes everything easier if we can accept that. If we can sit back in an easy chair eating popcorn, watching the movie that is our lives play out. That is not to say we do not take an active role in our lives, it is simply a metaphor for how we view our stories.
If we view our lives as a story, it is easier to be less emotionally attached. It is easier to accept our paths.
Does anyone else have arguments inside their heads or am I crazy? It’s like I have multiple personalities sometimes and some of them are downright mean. “What were you thinking, you idiot?” or “You are so stupid!” And then the reasonable one chimes in with. “Oh stop that, what’s done is done.
How much will I allow the chatter in my head to occupy my inner sanctity? But if I step outside myself and watch, everything is suddenly easier and the dialogue quiets.
I like to think that when I am motivated to do anything, it is because that is what Spirit/God/The Universe is guiding me to do.
I like to think we are all connected and we are all one, and that our stories collide regardless of what we do, or how hard we may try to navigate another course. Everything comes full circle at some point. There is always a beginning and always an end, but the circle is endless and the lines will forevermore be blurred.
