We have all been told sometime in our lives to "Get
Real Dude", but what does this mean? Just what is our reality and
how can we change our perception of what we have been taught to believe
as reality? If a wasp stings us it hurts. If we buy a stock or bond
and it halves in value we "feel" the sting in a different manner.
This sure feels real enough. Just simple things like having a contractor
make repairs to our home can devastate some of us. We have all been
told by a workman "Don't Worry, I will treat your home as though it
is my own." Little did we know the guy lives in Pompeii.
Throughout our live many events will come along to
test our resolve. Some of these event are happy, some are sad. As
long as we draw breath there will be a continuation of daily actions
which we will make us react. Some of these we have a certain amount
of control over. Some we have none. These events are part and parcel
of the human experience and whilst we may not like all that Goes on,
the show will Go on all the same.
We look around and our eyes show us a scene of our
surroundings but everything is constantly changing so how real can
that be. When we look towards the sky we see the stars but many of
them no longer exist. They disappeared billions of years ago but we
still see their light.
The light we receive comes from the Sun. All the
magnificent colors we see all around are gasses burning on the Sun.
They are filtered through the light that hits earth and react to various
particles of matter. So you could say color is an illusion. We just
see the millions of different shades and marvel at the beauty. The
reality is in the invisible rays of light.
In Physics color is described as a theoretical property
that distinguishes the various states in which quarks exist. In other
words matter mirrors anti matter.
You are reading this article and the very second
you digest the information it has become history. Each moment becomes
the past in an instant. We live our lives as a grain of sand trickling
through an hour glass. An hour, a day, a month, a century, all pass
in a fleeting flash. We can make plans for the future but what if
we are not around to fulfill our dreams. What we must understand is
nothing stays the same. Nothing is that serious that it take away
the Joy of the moment.
Every cell, molecule and atom in our bodies will
all change over a two year period. So even our physical being is different
from what it was. If we only see life through a limited perspective
of what we know, then it can be compared to being invited to an amazing
banquet and only eating bread and water.
I have recently returned from a two week tour of
Italy and have visited many Churches, Basilicas, Temples and Holy
Shrines. All monuments depicting the cultures and religions spanning
two thousand years. Throughout this period of magnificent building,
Wars, Suffering, Bigotry and Hatred was being perpetrate by the very
folks who were giving orders to build the holy shrines. Following
our Egos limited perspective of life has lead to many disastrous actions.
A total misunderstanding of reality and we base our culture on similar
rules and regulations today.
We have learnt nothing from two thousand years of
mayhem. At this very moment thirty Wars are going on in the world
today. Each tribe defending or attacking with their version of reality.
People are still living in suppressed and poor conditions in third
world countries and even in the rich Countries people suffer mentally.
What is it all about? Why do we continue to adopt a lifestyle that
is harmful mentally and then manifesting into physical sickness?
We must come to terms with our perception of reality.
If things are constantly changing and nothing stays the same, what
is there to worry about. Nothing can be considered as real for nothing
physical lasts. NO MATTER WHAT, NO MATTER LASTS.
As we detach our memories from the shackles of the
past we begin find peace of mind. We Release the conditioned minds
narrow view of how we would like life to be. We are now attaching
our thoughts to a power source that is everlasting and will not fail
us. No short circuit.
All the real things that enhance our lives cannot
be seen, touched and felt in the physical way. They will be transported
into our senses so that we will see, hear, feel, touch and smell The
Divine and this will come to us when we are in a sense of Joy. For
there is the yardstick of our attachment.
Beyond the physical traumas of everyday life.
Just as our shadow is a reflection of our physical
form, just as a mirror is a reflection of our form, our physical form
is a reflection of our true selves. Billions of invisible particles
are floating around to form different life forms. The blueprint of
a human gene is a copy of invisible matter, which is our true identity.
In the silence of our thoughtless mind our soul will
connect us to our reality and once we feel the Eternal Infinite Touch
of God we will not want to go back to living a false reality. We will
transform into a Healthy Wealth Wise Powerhouse of Joy for all our
friends and family to follow.
There will always be those who will ridicule and
belittle us, but I think we will be able to handle that, don't you.
There is an old saying which goes "TRY" and if at first you don't
succeed "TRY" "TRY" AGAIN. We will find there is no effort involved
in finding happiness enshrined in love. There was never any effort
and no need "To TRY" for there is no failure. It is all a learning
experience and the longer we live the more we learn. We will continue
to find our true selves and become one with all that is REAL.
We will learn to trust our instincts more.
We will find our awareness of dangers is stronger, so we will avoid
We will become more tolerant of other and learn to forgive passed
The need to defend will be replaced with the need
to love. We are transient beings living in a finite form. We live
on the tick of a clock, moments in time, then the moment is gone.
There are billions of invisible particles that are our true being.
We are constructed from our own reality and possess infinite possibility
for we born out of eternity.
We are given freedom of choice within a whole range
of possibilities, preprogrammed, yet free willed at the same time.
Our thought dimensions are our image creators, which filter through
our imagination. As we unlock our treasures of the Cosmos, we will
begin to understand the meaning of real. Spirit colors our thoughts
with the paintbrush of the Soul.
As we sail through life we will slowly uncover our
true self and the joy of each experience becomes more and more ecstatic.
A flotilla of magical moment journeying to a mystical paradise. We
release the memories of fear and our emotions are ablaze with the
Joy of knowing we are connected to all that exists, Dimensions of
the Real flood our brain cells.
When the time comes to live in the "real" totally,
we will be back Home in Eternity. For now our reality is to Enjoy
each moment in the REAL SENSE and that is A Real Cool Reality.
God wears a REAL colorful designer Label.
