She was walking alone, but felt as if somebody or something was there. She felt the tangible presence of something, which was always beside her, but she never managed to see it- just feel it. When she stopped, it stopped with her. When she was trying to run away, it was running away with her.
What could it be? What was it that had a tangible presence, yet obtrusive absence?
It was Life- her own life.
One of the most significant, yet, the most neglected facts is that the world behaves the way we expect it to behave. What we observe, usually changes its behavior according to what we expect to see. A realization, which is hanging in the air of our existence and is waiting to be grabbed and used, but most people don’t even notice it, because they are too busy wondering and whining why their life and people around them are such.
The world is such, because you are such.
Everything around us has a behavior, which is in synchrony with our own expectations. We expect everybody to be bad, evil, jealous and mean. We expect everything to always have the worst possible outcome. And of course, keeping in mind that the Universe is like a copy machine, which always copies each one of our thoughts, every intense feeling and then sends it carefully wrapped in the shape of a situation or a person, who enters in our life, in order to hand it to us, it is no wonder that people are drowning in dissatisfaction, apathy and desperation.
The original is such, the copies will be such as well.
Life is our best friend. And friends always do what we need. Friends master the art of giving us time- time to be beside you and help you and time, when they back up, so they can give you space to gather the experiences you need. Then, they come back again and reach out for your hand, so you can go through everything together.
Life does the same. It is constantly obeying our desires. It suggests us abundance, but when we are too lost in our preliminary expectations and when we ignore the abundance, just because it is not wrapped as we wish it to be, life steps back. It helps us see, by allowing us to be shattered by what we’ve welcomed in our life, because of our wrong notions. Then, it once again offers a helping hand and tries to give us courage and confidence to start walking on the path, where we will find what we search.
Life is something like plastelin, and our bodies, words, thoughts and emotions are the instruments, which reshape it according to our own convictions. Convictions are what moves our world in the direction it is headed. Convictions are what is being reflected in each one of our gestures, words and actions.
We are the once who shape and create the world where we lie. A truth, which most people deny, because of the heavy burden of the responsibility, which this realization brings. Once you realize that everything which happens to you, takes place just because you’ve previously invited it in your life, you have no other choice but to be and act consciously; to choose each action, each word carefully.
People throw their words rashly, and then they turn into victims, when their heavy words, crash on our life and cause harm.
Right now every one of us is standing on the border of two worlds- one, where everything is wonderful and possible and one, where everything is dark and cursed. And the best part is that every one of us chooses the direction where he redirects his efforts. The path and the efforts are the same. The difference is in the end result and the journey itself.
Everything around us behaves in the way we expect it to behave. The behavior of everything which has life, is being dictated by the notions and convictions of the observer. Your life is being reshaped, according to the way you observe it.
Once I read that every sunflower becomes the sun; that what we observe, what we notice is what we become.
If you are too busy focusing on the ugly, the injustice, then you and your life will reflect just this.
I choose something different. I chose to observe the beauty in the days- and it is everywhere. The world is an abundance of wonderful and terrible experiences. There is everything for everybody and it is our choice, which determines how much and what we get.
Be conscious and know that life is walking beside you and imitates you- frown and it frowns; hate and it hates; be happy and it will be happy as well.
Everything behaves in a way to please the expectations of the observer. Change your expectations and the world will follow you as a shadow.
