Who's Creating YOUR Reality?
by Rosella Aranda
"What is happening within us will create what happens
"There is no `out there' out there, independent of what is going on in here."
These quotes are taken from the movie "What the Bleep Do We Know?"
This fascinating film demonstrates cinematically what the Seth material told us years ago. Its basic premise is that we literally create our own reality.
If there is conflict, turmoil or frustration in our outer experience, the cause lies in the inner realm of our minds. Our outer world is nothing more than an outward manifestation of the mental images that we carry.
What Are You Going To Do About It?
Most people have no trouble agreeing with this notion on the surface. And yet, most won't make the effort to really examine and weed out the beliefs that are holding them back.
I'm reminded of a story that I first heard years ago on a tape series from one of my favorite mentors, Dr. Deepak Chopra. It goes something like this . . .
Elephants born in captivity are restrained by a chain which attaches one of their legs to a metal spike driven into the ground. This prevents them from straying away. They become accustomed to the fact that, as long as the chain and spike are present, they are unable to move.
As they grow older, the minds of these baby elephants become programmed. When they see the spike and chain, they "believe" and accept that they cannot move.
They become so conditioned that when their owners tie them down with nothing more than a flimsy rope attached to a wooden post or a small tree, they make no effort to move away, because they are already convinced that they can't.
In truth, their actual power as adults is so great that they could easily snap the rope or uproot the tree and just walk away with the whole thing! Their programming, however, prevents them from even making an attempt.
Does This Remind You of Anyone You Know?
We are all very much like these elephants. We allow severely limiting beliefs, which have no basis in reality, to inhibit our actions and even our imaginations.
We are controlled by false childhood assumptions we made (or that someone else made for us) about our ability, power or even our inherent worth.
Until we muster the courage and the energy to seek out and challenge these outdated notions, we will continue to be as "imprisoned" as these elephants.
Here's one final parting quote from the same movie:
"We are operating as if today were yesterday."
Hmmm. Do you want this to be true of you?
