Our true nature is not one of a sense of identity, an egoic “me,” but rather pure awareness itself.
Now, to just look at something and observe without interacting with it or without even thinking about it, that sounds pretty benign doesn’t it? It sounds very passive, as if the simple awareness of what is would have no effect upon what is.
Ah, it turns out that awareness of what is is much more powerful than we realize.
I recently read a post by my friend and fellow blogger Nicholas Powiull about the difficulty in knowing, feeling, and experiencing infinite potential. The video he shared with us from What the Bleep Do We Know? triggered an “aha moment” within me and I’m going to share it with you now.
We can see that our material world, in its true unmanifest/unobserved nature, exists as an infinite set of possibilities, right here, right now. From a statistical standpoint, some of the possibilities are more likely than others and this is reflected as showing up more densely on the projected screen. In “real life” we could say that it’s more likely that you’ll roll out of bed and brush your teeth than it is that you’ll roll out of bed and sing an opera. They’re both still valid possibilities nonetheless. Until there is awareness present to actually witness potentiality, no manifestation can occur.
We are all the observers of our world and it is literally the observation of the world that determines what manifests from potentiality into actuality. On a quantum level, if there was no one around to witness our world, the world as we know it wouldn’t exist except as a collection of possibilities.
If a tree falls in the forest and there is no one around to hear it, does it still make a sound?
What you focus on expands.
Where attention goes, energy flows.
You are literally creating your reality all around you simply by looking at it.
DO YOU REALIZE HOW POWERFUL YOU ARE!?
