In this series of articles we will discuss the practical applications of how we create the reality that we are currently living and how we can change that reality to match our true desires. And, before we can learn how to consciously create our realities we must come to a fundamental understanding. We must understand that change is a natural state of being and that we can make changes in our lives without changing who we are.Until next time, make each day a great day, you deserve it. Bryce
In order to demonstrate my point I'd like you to participate in an exercise with me. This exercise is very simple and only requires a piece of paper and two pens of different colors. At the top of the paper write these words, "I am". Now in a different color ink I want you to finish that statement by answering the question, "who am I?" Take as much room and as much time as you need. To give you an example you may simply start with your gender, "I am a man" or "I am a women ". Just write whatever you would answer if someone asked you who you are.
Now that we have answered the question "who am I?" let's take a look at what we wrote. In my experience our answers will come in seven possible different forms.
I am my behavior (loving, kind, funny, responsible).
I am my role I play in life (mother, father, brother, daughter, friend).
I am my profession (teacher, doctor, fireman, business person).
I am my body (handsome, ugly, attractive, fat, a redhead).
I am my race, nationality or ethnic group (American, Hispanic, white).
I am my possessions (homeowner, car owner, landowner). (
I am my title (Bryce, General, Conscious Creator, Me, Energy).
I am my emotions (happy, sad, excited, depressed).
Let's look at our answers. Do they fall into these seven categories? I'm sure they do. Do you notice anything in common with all of these categories? They all have the word "my" in them - my behavior, my profession, my title, my body. And what does the word "my" denote? It denotes a possession - something that belongs to us. Can the possessor be that which it possesses? I don't believe so. I don't believe that we are our behavior, body, emotion, role, profession, race, gender or title any more than we are our car. They belong to us, they are not us. So let's cross out all those things on our lists that belong to us. Now take a look at our list again. What is left? Did you say nothing? Look closer, is there anything still written on the paper? I am. That is all that is left and that is the true answer to the question of who we really are.
Why is this important and what does it have to do with creating our realities to fit our desire. It means we can change anything in our lives without changing the essence of who we are. We can change our behavior, our emotions, our profession, our body, anything in our lives that is holding us back from creating the reality we desire. It is no different than getting a new car. If our car no longer gets us to where we want to go, we get a new one that will. That can just as easily be the same for any of our other possessions. And as we have seen, everything we previously believed ourselves to be is simply a possession. Any of it can change just as easily, and with no more consequence than getting a new car.
In the upcoming articles in this series we will be looking at specifically how we create our reality and what specific and practical changes we can make to create the reality we truly desire.
