George Bernard Shaw famously said “Life isn’t about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself.”
This is one of my core beliefs. But I’ll forever be curious about the word “creating.”
I believe that nothing is “created.” I believe that all potentials exist, and that we are merely realizing them. We can’t take credit for our creations any more than we can take credit for winning the lottery, or getting struck by a car.
Well, we CAN take credit, and we DO take credit, but we are simply IMAGINING that we are the creators of this creation called “reality.”What we seem to be doing is steering ourselves, or rather following a line of potentials that make it SEEM like we are people with free will steering ourselves through infinite potentials, realizing those potentials as we go.
Whether we have free will or it merely SEEMS like we have free will is irrelevant. The end experience is the same, and we can seem to choose a path of celebration, denial, shock, dismay, gratitude, you name it.
These vibratory experiences have always existed. We merely come into them somehow. This is what Space Monkey seems to be exploring with us.
It appears to be a huge leap to believe in the potential that I am describing. But in my actuality, NOTHING is a huge leap.
It’s all connected. It’s all touching. It’s just outside of the path we seem to be following.
Scientists are now beginning to theorize a “nonlocal” dimension that is outside of space and time. I think, perhaps, this is what I seemingly sense.
We can go on believing that we are “creating” things. That’s a fun thread of potential to follow. But we can also believe that ALL IS CREATED and that we merely need to point ourselves to the aspects of experience we wish to realize.
To do that, we need to get past this idea that we are creating things. That we are SELVES creating things. That’s just ONE potential perspective — albeit the one we are realizing right now.
It seems difficult to “jump the tracks” so to speak, but I’m beginning to realize that it’s possible.
In fact, I’m doing it right now. WE are doing this, right now.
We are Space Monkey.
