What happens in the world around you is a product of your interpretation. If you ask one hundred people who witnessed the same event to describe that event, you will get 100 different interpretations of that same event, all perceived through slightly varied senses of sight, sound, smell, taste, and feeling. All perceived differently based on the individual’s personal history, knowledge, upbringing, belief system, and cultural and religious beliefs. Our past is dependent upon interpretation.
Sounds complicated, eh? But really all it means is that our environment is dependent upon our inner self. It is not what happens to us, but our interpretation of what happens to us. So, if what actually happens is a variable of our thinking and belief, then the present is dependent upon interpretation also.
Each moment is a choice as well. What we choose to put our attention on in any given moment is a choice, no matter what is going on around us. As we think about the future, we have the option of coloring that thought to our liking as well. We can imagine the next moment to be inspiring and wonderful, or negative and repetitive. To be in a rut, we have to bring in a thought that our future will be just like our past. It’s like listening to a song and hitting replay ten seconds into the song and continually hearing the same section over and over and over. Our future is therefore dependent upon interpretation as well.
My point today is that we actually have conscious control over our future. To create a future that is just like our past we have to hit the replay button every ten seconds, in other words we have to consciously put thoughts in our head that are identical to the thoughts we had before. The only way we can be in a “rut” or “stuck” is to consciously create the same thing over and over.
So shake it up! Practice thinking new thoughts. Pick out some little thing and think differently about it. Master it. See your world change one little thing at a time. As you practice, you can move your thoughts to bigger and bigger things in your life, and you will have the ability to transform your life in any way imaginable.
Replace those repetitive thoughts of old, and break out of the rut, get unstuck. You will be able to create the future of your own desire simply by transforming your thoughts, about the past, the present, and the future!
