We have been conditioned to live our lives in a linear way, from the past to the future. What if this is only one side of the coin and there is another side. What if the future can pull the present towards it?
We have been conditioned to believe in cause and effect. Something that has happened in the past will affect our future. We have found ourselves going into the past to ‘fix’ something. Most of the psychological world focuses on this. Also in the metaphysical realms, we have had the tendency to take on: whatever shows up in our reality today is due to something we have done or thought in the past. The unspoken belief is that ‘it is all our fault’. The logical fallout is that if we created the problem, therefore we must fix it. Due to these beliefs we have spent years processing the past and creating a belief that if we didn’t go into the past and fix something, we would never be whole.
What if that isn’t all of the truth? That we just didn’t know any better. We didn’t have all of the information. What if this is only half of the equation or one side of the coin. What if there is another side of the coin, another part of the equation? Scientifically we are learning that the future can affect the present. That the scientists, not knowing how to prove this, left it out of the equation and didn’t tell us that they left it out. Therefore all our philosophies and beliefs were based on only half of the equation. Do you see it? We have lived our lives as if one side of the equation did not exist and yet it does!
How can we start living in both sides of equation? Through the writing of the Creation Exercises regularly, we have gained evidence that indeed the future can call the present to it. In the writing of the Creation Exercises, we start to create what we want our future to look like by informing Creation exactly how we want it to be. We don’t just state it once. We have stated what we want our future be in 12 different statements in each craving. We have created a really rich landscape for our future to live in. Creation is now paying attention to what we crave, and the future starts to pull the present toward it.
So now you have a choice when you don’t like the reality you are living in. If you are aware that you have some emotional baggage that has become solidified, one of your tools is to continue to write the Creation Exercises. You can also find someone or some tool that won’t make you fix the past or a way to loosen the grip without re-living it. It’s not an either/or. Don’t desert one for the other. It’s both/and. Trust your system and choose what will serve you in the moment.
With this new information, it’s no longer true that you have to keep repeating the past. You have choice. You can generate a future that affects the present. You can generate a future that pulls the present towards it. There is also magic in this. As you spend more time with what you really want your life to look like, many of the emotional charges of the past just seem to fall away. Now you have the full equation. You are no longer living out of just one side of the equation. Think about it. Sense into how that sits in your system. Come with me to design the future and live in it now!
