You create your own reality – and it is all about perception.
my “cold” analogy:
It is not the cold that bothers you – it’s your reaction to the feeling of the coldness against your skin. It is up to you how you feel about the cold and then react to it – it is not the cold’s “fault” you feel such ways about it!
For example, some people like cold, and some dislike it. But if you can change your perception of cold, you have the capability of beginning to like it – or maybe even to enjoy it!
Your mind is very powerful. You can use it as a tool to help create the life you want – no one else will do it for you. It’s the only thing you need.
In order to do this, you have to really want change. You have to work for it. You have to want it more than anything.
Research the cold, do the work. Figure out how your body works and why you react to like the way you do, emotionally, mentally, physically, spiritually. Do whatever it takes for you to change your reality for your own well being and peace of mind.
in the same vein:
It is not the person who is “ugly” – it YOURSELF who is ugly – because it was YOU who created that “ugly” first! Whenever you call someone or something ugly, you are only calling yourself ugly, because you embodied it first. Nothing is – in itself – “anything”. It is up to the observer to choose what to think.
Perception is a key to acquiring the life your desire.
If you think you are living with a lack of abundance – you are.
If you think you are living in a constant state of joy and happiness – you are. This is all you will see.
It is up to you what kind of world you wish to see around you.
Thoughts on abundance:
Abundance may not mean material wealth – a women in a poor country may not have much food or a sufficient shelter, yet she still has the capacity to live in a state of constant bliss because of her perception. Abundance to her may ONLY mean the love she feels to her family or the experiences she has with her children. Abundance to her may ONLY mean the gratitude she feels to wake up every day and to experience the wind in her hair and the grass between her feet. Abundance to her may ONLY mean being able to look up to the night sky and see the stars every night of her life. Abundance is a warm embrace by her children, a kiss from a lover, a single word spoken to her from a long lost friend, a single cup of clean water in her hands…
Abundance is perception.
