As a consequence, the hazy-wave exists as potential for a behavior to exist in the form of a thought. This means that anything is possible but it becomes more probable if it is given attention. The more attention something is given the more likely it is exist as part of the reality we create for ourselves. Subsequently, without the consciousness of the virtual realm to initiate observation, every thought exists only as a potential event. Once we decide to act on the vague concept of a thought, it becomes a reality. Repeatedly attending to the same process of thought produces the habitual behavior of attending to the same process of thought. That process subsequently produces a tangible result in our physical experience of reality.
So lives are made real by acting on the infinite number of possible choices available, thus creating a memory of that experience and the potential for repeating it. If it produced a pleasurable result, the desire to experience it again is produced. Thus, patterns of behavior emerge, and the choices we make most frequently determine how we got where we are at any one point. This repeated action of thinking the same thoughts increases the probability that these thoughts and behaviors will occur again.
The Point of It All
• We each have approximately 60,000 thoughts per day.
• These thoughts exist as possibilities until we assign attention to them, i.e. choose to observe them.
• Once observed (or chosen), the probability that they will reoccur is increased.
• The action of choosing a possibility is based upon our genetics, environment, and exposure to stress.
• Choosing a possibility creates a memory.
• The memory serves as a catalyst, creating a desire for repeating or avoiding the choice.
Everyone strives for a sense of wholeness and purpose in life. Our true nature is to be complete and at one with the divine. Somewhere along our path, it seems we have lost our way. We have become fragmented and cut off from truth. We no longer feel that we have control over our lives. We all engage in destructive patterns of behavior that keep us from our true sense of power. This in turn produces the fear spoken of by Nelson Mandela when he suggested that our greatest fear is not that we are powerless, but that we are far more powerful than we think.
The learned responses we have adopted to cope with what was being done or said to us at a certain time are not who we really are. Life is a quest to be whole. Disease is rooted in the belief that we are incomplete. Our spiritual journey, then, is to work at becoming whole by reconnecting with all those pieces that we have denied, disowned, or otherwise suppressed.
