We Create Our Own Reality
Consciousness, or Aware Energy, is the Source and Substance of All That Is. As beings of aware energy, All That Is thinks, feels, acts and reacts; therefore, we ARE! As we think, feel, act and react, we create. To change what we create, we change what we think and feel, how we act and react.
As beings of aware energy, we are both one with and separate from All That Is. We are both products of creation and creation itself. Pushed from within by the impulse to be and create and drawn from without by the promise of being and creation, it is up to us to determine the difference between what we like and don’t like, what works for us and what doesn’t, what makes us happy and what doesn’t.
The challenge of Being and Creation is learning how to use the power of thought and imagination to shape the energy of ideas into a pleasing reality. The prize is a sense of satisfaction, the feeling of a job well done. Like learning how to walk or talk, it is a personal, subjective endeavor that requires creative aggression. It is a balancing act that makes falling part of learning how to stand.
Remember: thoughts are “things” with a reality of their own and each of us, an artist. With thoughts in the form of beliefs, attitudes, values and expectations, we paint the landscape of our lives. Create a great day!

Suppose the ideas expressed here are real. How do you see them changing the way you think about yourself and the world?

What others will not or cannot do for us, we must do for ourselves.

Here is a copy of the original (1991) version of We Create Our Own Reality. I like it because it emphasizes the role of thoughts and feelings in the creation or reality. In addition, comparing the old with the new reminds me of how important patience and practice are in writing. In addition, the stiffness of my old writing reminds me of how frightening it can be to write about subjects that have the potential to empower average people. Like voting, some people don’t want everyone to vote because it means the end of their minority rule and this is only one example in an “I win, you lose,” value judgment world of right and wrong, good and bad, enforced by the shame of guilt and the fear of punishment, a world that controls us from the outside in.
The Original (1991) Version of We Create Our Own Reality
During the course of everyday events, we often forget the role of thoughts in the forging of our material reality. We get lost in the visible symbols, the material by-products of our imaginations, forgetting the invisible blueprints from which they, and we, emerge.
Pure energy, like money, its material equivalent, is shaped into matter and experience by thought. It can be used to lift up or smash down, to build character or destroy character, to express love or express hate, to beautify or make ugly.
The purpose, or challenge, of life is to learn how to use thought in its various forms to shape energy into a pleasing reality. The prize is a sense of satisfaction, the feeling of a job well done. And, like learning to walk or talk, it is a personal, subjective endeavor that requires creative aggression. It is a great balancing act, where one must accept falling down in the course of learning how to stand up.
Thoughts are “things” with a reality of their own and you an artist. With thoughts in the forms of belief, attitude, value and expectation you paint the landscape of your life. Create a great day!
It is time to move beyond debate, competition, fear and limitation! It is time to see that we are all in this together – partners in evolution. Every thought is a suggestion, a blueprint for action, and every action is a choice with consequences that work for us or against us. We must trust ourselves to know the difference between what we like and don’t like, what works for us and what doesn’t, what makes us happiest and what doesn’t, in our oneness with and separation from All That Is, as both products of creation and creation itself.
It is time to use the power of thought and imagination to shape the energy of ideas into a pleasing reality. If we’re unable to think of a compelling reason to do so then let’s do it just because we can! Let love and understanding be the light and our way.
I believe that we do create our own reality and that we can change our reality experiences by changing the way we think. I don’t think it’s always an easy thing to do; however, if we want it enough, we can do it.
In my experience of life for the last 78 years, I, as everyone else, have had major and minor ups and downs, periods of time I didn’t feel happy with my decisions, and times that I felt extremely happy with them. When we’re busy and preoccupied with the myriad of things life brings, we may not be in a state of mind to “know” we can change what’s happening. But when you finally realize that if you don’t like something, you can change it – what a revelation!! Forgiving yourself and forgiving others becomes easier if you look at these experiences as learning and evolving, a process everyone goes through.
I think we need to be more understanding and forgiving with ourselves and with others. We never know what others are going through when they make the decisions they do and what lessons they are here to learn. If their decisions affect us, and we are being pulled into their reality, perhaps we have lessons to learn there too.
I think we’d all agree, no matter what your political stance is, that our home, our Earth, is pretty much in chaos in many ways. Climate change is making its mark on us at an alarming rate. Some say there is nothing we can do; that we’ve gone beyond the ability to change things. I believe we still have a good chance if we believe that we create our own reality and proceed to do so!
It’s all part of evolving. Talk to God or the Universe and ask for guidance.
