Create Your Own Reality

Our senses tell us that events happen within space and time. There is a past, present and future, and the world operates through linear cause-effect relationships. I have to walk from here to there, from one location to another. This causes a timeline to appear.

That is how our senses experience the world, but in fact the world is not like that. The world is synchronistic, it’s coincidental, it’s happening simultaneously. Infinite possibilities coexist at the same time. Everything is happening all at once, and everything is correlated and instantly synchronized with everything else. This simultaneity can only happen through what is called infinite correlation. Infinite correlation is the ability to do an infinite number of things and correlate them with one another at the same time.

Physicists no longer use the word time; they use the term space-time continuum because they know that time is a relative phenomenon; it’s not absolute. The movement of planet Earth spinning on its axis and hurtling around the sun at thousands of miles per hour creates our experience of time. But time is an illusion; it’s an internal dialogue we use to explain our experience or perception of change and relationship.

How does all of this apply to us? Well, the way we interpret the concept of time—how we metabolize our experience of time—brings about distinct physiological changes in the body-mind.

In the present, you can experience the past; in the present, you can anticipate the future. But if you can stay in the present, if you can be with the present, then even the physical changes that normally occur with the passage of time will not occur in your body. There is a saying from a Vedic master: “The only reason people grow old and die is that they see other people growing old and dying.”

If you live on a desert Island and there are no other people to see live and grow old and die, do you think you would not grow older and die? The Earth revolves and as it does, we age, we do not have to have old thoughts but regardless of ones philosophy, you will end up isn't the dying, it's how we live our though we do not age....that is the secret.

Without faith - nothing works. I have seen many things in my life manifest, because I knew what I wanted. I was willing to work to achieve my dream! In 1970 I went to a lecture and the speaker who was trying to sell his course on the Golden Circle and manifesting what you want...spoke to me for 5 minutes and told me I didn't need his course. He told me to go home and do exactly what he said in his lecture to bring my dream into being. That night I went home and sketched my Dream Home. Within two years it materialized. I showed a realtor -friend what I wanted and one day she called me to tell me that she was standing in my Dream Home. I know Deepak is right. We can create our own reality.
