We live in a world, a world of love, hate, flowers and guns. Or do we? Actually, we live in two different worlds, an inner world, and an outer world. The outer world is where objects excist, the food in your refrigerator and the cars passing by on the streets. It's the world of circumstances and situations. Then there is also an inner world. A world within our consciousness where our feelings exist, a world which is most of the time, occupied with about 48 thoughts per minute. Our beliefs and reactions, exist in our inner world.
Remember a time when you were sitting in a classroom. Your teacher is having a lecture about mathematical statistics. Even though you are present in the room, sitting on a chair looking at the teachers ugly handwriting, your thoughts are somewhere else. You are thinking about what you are going to do later tonight. How amazing a hamburger would taste in front of a TV-show.... Mmmmm....All the sudden you hear your teacher shout your name and ask you for an answer. Even though you were looking at the math statistics presented, you have no idea what the teacher were explaining... " Eeeehm, what was the question again?" Feeling your mouth filled up with saliva after the thought of a delicious hamburger....
Your physical body were present in the classroom, your ass were sitting on the chair in the other world, but your thoughts were somewhere else!
Things happen to us in the outer world, and we react to them in the inner world. Lets say your boss comes up to you and say "I'm really unhappy with the work your doing, we have to let you go, you are fired". That happens in the outer world, while in your inner world you react to it. You start to doubt yourself, you start to worry and feel the fear of being unemployed.
Take for example confidence, confidence doesn't exist in the outer world, you got some confidence lying around in your closet? No, it exist in the inner world. Happiness. Happiness DOES NOT exist in the outer world. You cannot go to the grocery store and ask "Hey in which aisle can I find some happiness?" No, although everyone is looking for happiness, but happiness ONLY exist in the inner world.
It's important to understand that the universe is vibrational energy. Your clothes, your iphone, your feelings and your thoughts. The WHOLE UNIVERSE is also governed by laws, if you throw your iphone up in the air, the law of gravity will pull it back to the ground and you will probably get some cracks on the display. When you look at the sun, you are basically looking BACK in time, because the sunlight takes about 8 minutes and 20 second to travel from the sun to your eyes. It's the law of the speed of light. Everything in this universe, is governed by laws. But not us, not us human beings, it's just luck, some people are lucky. NO! Does it really make sense that everything in this universe is governed by laws EXCEPT US? NO! We are in the universe too and we are a part of the universe. And since EVERYTHING is governed by laws, then it makes totally sense that we are governed by laws as well. YOU are the cause of everything that happens to you. A little to harsh? No, we are vibrational energy, and so is everything around us. It's ALL connected, even though there is an outer world and an inner world. Everything that has ever happened in your life, has built up of vibrational energy.
We get overwhelmed by the outer world, we think we have no control over it, everything just happens to us and there is nothing we can do about it. But we can. Your mind is POWERFUL! Your mind, your thoughts and your feelings CREATES your reality. We are the vibrational frequency that attracts the experience to us. Your life is a reflection of you! When you start to accept this, you will feel an AMAZING power! Don't look for happiness in the grocery store, look for the happiness within! Matter effect, it's so easy, just decide to think about something that makes you happy. Maybe it's your pet, or maybe it's the love of your life or maybe *cough* a hamburger... Don't let your thoughts be on autopilot, be the actual pilot flying the plane. You can control your thoughts, don't let them control you.
Here is some tips to get started with:
1. Be aware of your thoughts. Notice when you are having a negative thought and you will realize that most of the time that thought is so useless. Maybe you are worrying about something that MIGHT happen in 3 days, and the more you worry about it, the bigger the risk is that it's actually going to happen. Because you are sending out that thought to the universe and you will attract just that.
2. When you are aware of your negative thought, accept it, and replace it with a positive one. Remember a beautiful memory or whatever makes you happy. Sometimes, you just need to practice your facial muscles and smile for no reason, because automatically your brain will give you a positive thought because it's used to having a positive thought whenever you are smiling.
3. Be grateful! It's sooooo easy to take things for granted. Be grateful for your eyes being able to read this beautiful post, be grateful for the air you breath in and the roof over your head. Do this every morning and you will be filled with positive vibrational energy!
So with this painting, I'm trying to convey a visual of the inner world and the outer world, and that it is connected.... I can continue talking about this for hours because the subject is soooo big and I just shared a glimse of it, but naah, I gotta go and create my reality... Or maybe go get an hamburger...
