Creating Your Reality --- Part Two

As a follow-up to the last blog, let's talk about fear a little more. Anytime you look outside your Self for your identity, you will become fearful. This encompasses several areas. A large percentage of people believe that their government will take care of them. Whether this is "true" is irrelevant, because the world that we see, as I described yesterday, is not real. It is only an appearance. If you are looking to anything in the world to solve your "problems," then this will engender fear. Your "problems" are "created," because you believe that the world is real. If you drop that perspective, the basis behind your "problems" may still be there, but you will see the "problem" in a totally different light, and you will see and be given the means to "solve" that "problem."

Nothing in the world can be solved using the means of the world, because this world is an illusion. The only way to "solve" something in the world is to bring it to Truth. Instead of looking toward the government or anything outside you to solve your problems, give all of your problems to God, the only Source that can truly heal them and take care of them. Although it may appear that way, your Source is not your job, your disability check, your investments, etc. These are only forms through which He works. Form is constantly changing, and all forms are temporary, so do not get attached to the form. Get attached to Him and you will be surprised at the number of ways (forms) He gives you the keys to the Kingdom.

In a similar vein to what we discussed above, a large number of people look outside their Self for their identity. "If I do this he might love me." "She is mad at me. I must have done something wrong." "I need him to complete me, to make me happy." Everyone must go through this at one time or another as they remember who they are. Your true identity, your true Self, does not depend on anything or anyone "outside" of you. If you depend on this, you will be disappointed time after time, because it cannot work. You are meant to discover who you are. This is one of the purposes you are here for. You can only know your Self by knowing that you are one with God. That is your identity. That is who you are, who you have always been.

A beautiful thing happens when you begin to live from your true identity. Love permeates your interactions with others. There are no games that you have to play to get someone to do something so you can boost that false identity. There are no expectations or burdens you place on the other person. You see and interact with them from a place of realness (is that a word?). And when you come from this space, they will drop their defenses and be who they really are. This is how we are meant to walk the Earth. This is what Jesus meant when he said the Kingdom of God is at hand. See there is nothing you have to do to get this except be who you really are. You both have and are the Kingdom.
