Don’t Let Anyone Tell You How to Direct Your Movie!

Soundtrack  We are all storytellers.  We all have a constant, ongoing internal dialogue about everything we see and experience.  24-7

There is nothing in life which is, in and of itself, inherently “good” or “bad”.  Everything is “good” or “bad” – yet that designation (whether it’s good or bad) comes from you.

When you saw this post, for example, you had a reaction of “Awesome!”  Or “Oh no!”  Most likely your reaction was somewhere in between (although I hope it was closer to the “Awesome” 😉 ).

That reaction was the “story” you told yourself about finding this post and it became your reality.  But can you see that the story you told yourself is not the “objective reality” of my post, but the “subjective reality”?

After all, if you read the reviews of my books on Amazon, you’ll find that the vast majority of reviews love my writing – yet there is a small minority who don’t like it all.  Are my fans “correct” and the detractors “wrong”?  Of course!

  • And our beliefs create our expectations (unconsciously).
  • And our expectations are the vehicle for our coherence with the energy of the quantum field – which creates our material reality.
  • Hence, the stories we tell come true.

How Being Trapped in an MRI Machine Can Produce Immense Gratitude

claustrophobia  Here’s another cool, real life illustration of holism, or, more specifically, the connection between mind and body. I just got an MRI on my right shoulder.

I love to play baseball and I’ve played left field and third base in a mens’ 0ver-thirty-eight league for years.  I’ve got a strong throwing arm (just ask the batters I’ve hit when my team has been forced to use me as a pitcher). It’s taken a toll on my throwing shoulder.  And I needed it checked out.

Those of us in the league, by the way, often find it important to highlight that we’re not playing softball, but, instead, are playing “little league for old men”. 😉

I didn’t think I was claustrophobic.  That is until I went into an MRI machine.  Three minutes in and I was buzzing the technician, “Get me out of here!  I do not want to do this!” (Click that link to Tweet it) Continue reading
