I believe that everything that takes place in our life, before it materializes in reality and before we encounter it, has long before being created in our mind. Everything we encounter, has previously received our own permission to exist. It is true both for good and bad situations.
As if each thought, every longing, every intention and action, are something like the paint and the brushes, which day after day, draw on the canvas of our own life. Step by step, they draw the contours of fears and the more we focus on them, the faster we finish the painting of our biggest fears and the sooner we are forced to accept its existence.
Life, like an exhibition of the paintings, which we draw with our mind, intentions and actions. Everything we encounter is our own masterpiece.
Fear is just the filling of the mind. The mind can’t stand emptiness and it is constantly trying to fill it with something. If we give in, if we lose control over what we think and what we chose to experience, fear takes over. It fills in each emptiness and stuffs it with its weight and unbearableness. Fear throws its shadow on our life and presses us against the corner of the unendurable existence, personificated with actions motivated by the feeling of insecurity and the desperate desire to defend our own self.
Everything happens only with our own permission. Life is like a palette of emotions and experiences and we are those who chose the experiences we will bring to life; we are those who chose what happens to us and we are those who either make a hero out of our own self or a victim of our own existence.
What dominates in our conscious is what dominates in our life. Thoughts have the incredible ability to materialize through the fastest and easiest route.
Once, a wonderful person, told me that everything I want will happen. He told me that I shouldn’t be worried exactly how it is gonna happen and I should just decide exactly what I want. I should formulate it and then allow my brain to find the right route to it.
Since then, every time I aim for something, I decide that I won’t burden it with doubts and fears of impossibility. I give it the complete freedom to find the best route and the most appropriate moment to become part of my life. I free it from the pretentions of expectations and the predetermination of the limited imagination. I set it free, let it wander through my imagination and find the right path. I let it find the path from the deepest longing, to its manifestation in reality.
Every day, I accept from life, just what I chose to experience. Just like I do not accept from people, what they impose on me; just like I feel the freedom to decline what I consider harmful for me and my progress as a person; I chose to treat my own life the same way. I give it the freedom to give me the choices, but at the end of the day the decisions are mine. At the end of the day I am the one who gives permission to something to happen, because even though we believe in the inevitability of the happening, it is actually just an illusion.
Everything happens according to the plot we play in our mind. Our thoughts and emotions, our reactions to the facts from reality, are what gives life to the scenery and arranges it in the meaning we gave it.
Because in life nothing happens. In life everything just is. The happening is just in our own mind. The happening is the degree of permission, which we give to everything that exists- the permission we give it to reach us and define our own significance and value.
Fear is just a filling of the mind and as each filling, we can chose its type. I chose to fill my mind with faith in my own abilities, with the confidence that everything I long for already exists and it is up to me to direct myself towards it, to allow the beat about the paths of life, to lead me on the route, where I will have the pleasure to experience, what I previously chose.
Fear doesn’t exist. Fear is the mean of the mind to keep us in captivity of the illusion and to fog our conscious, keeping us away from reality. Fear is the tool of the mind- the tool that deforms a world full of potential and possibilities and belittles it to the insignificant size of a swamp, filled with rotting souls, dying hopes and drowning longings.
Because, everything, before it happens, already has our permission in our mind. Everything exists, but before we bring it to life, its existence is just in the world of the invisible and exactly our thoughts and actions are what makes it reality. We give life to the dream and we are those who bring fear to life.
We chose our own life and that is why we have the heavy responsibility to be more conscious. Mediocrity could be overcome just with the conscious presence in every moment; just with a conscious choice in every situation.
