Was That Zombie Wearing Mickey Mouse Ears?

zombie-reporter  I used to be terrified of zombies. Sometimes, after watching a zombie film (even as an adult), I would have trouble getting to sleep.

But after I spent a week around an entire city of the walking dead I actually learned to pity them. Fortunately, I’ve learned, the living dead don’t have to stay that way. I should know…I used to be one of them myself.

By the way, I was shocked to encounter 20,000-plus zombies and you’ll be shocked too, when I reveal where I saw them… (Click that Link to Tweet it)

Zombies Are Simply No Fun

Zombies don’t like to have fun. Unfortunately, in this manner, they have a lot in common with most people.

I acknowledge that many things in life are not inherently fun. Paying your utilities bill, doing your laundry, burying your beloved pet dog, packing for a move, or changing your car’s oil are all examples of tasks which are not only “un-fun,” but which you might even dread. Nobody gets out of bed thinking, “I hope I discover a leaky pipe today!” Yet, because we are adults, we must deal with these “un-fun” responsibilities.

You have your own personal list of “un-fun” bugaboos (on which, if you’re like I was, zombies might be listed). These “un-fun” responsibilities constitute, like it or not, a great portion of your adult life.

That is precisely the reason telling better-feeling, believable stories of your choosing is your primary tool for deliberate creation.  Because telling stories more aligned with your desires allows you to turn those lemons into lemonade.

What is adulthood for many, unfortunate people, but a never-ending chain of serious, stressful tasks and events that they endure?  And that they randomly relieve and reward with brief intervals of sanctioned recreation? And, unfortunately, most efforts at recreation (whether you’re human or zombie) do not work – as I’ll reveal in a moment.

Children Are the “Anti-Zombie”

Children, however, naturally search for fun in everything they do.

  • Their natural stories about life, the meaning and value they give things, is almost always geared toward having fun right here, right now.
  • Those stories usually fill them with an otherworldly level of energy and optimism.
  • Those stories also allow children to manifest fun in whatever they are doing; children don’t wait for the attainment of some goal or objective to manifest happiness and fun.

When Did You Decide to Become a “Serious” Adult?

Are you making the same deadly mistake that almost every adult makes? (Click that Link to Tweet it) Are you accepting the “fact” that adulthood means less energy, poorer health, lowered vitality, and decreased resiliency?

Why?

Who told you that boundless energy, incredible optimism, superb health, and amazing resiliency are only for children? And, more importantly, why did you believe it?

At some point you did start to believe that lie. At some point you stopped manifesting fun in all your activities and started waiting for your fun and happiness as the reward for completing them. A reward, unfortunately, that never arrives.

This is the point at which you crossed over from the land of the living. You became a zombie…or at least you became capable of turning into a zombie (as I’ll describe in a moment) at any time.

The child-like (not childish) essence, after all, of telling better-feeling stories more aligned with your desires is that your greatest fun and happiness is always found right here and right now.

I know you aren’t usually interested in manifesting fun in the same manner you enjoyed as a child, but you must reacquaint yourself with your childlike willingness to manifest your fun where you find it.  Because I am 100% certain that, in your future, there will be:

  • Utility bills
  • Dirty laundry
  • A beloved pet’s death to grieve
  • A move to make
  • Oil to change.

And if you’re waiting to manifest fun and happiness as a reward for finishing those tasks, then you only have more stress, more disease, less vitality, and diminished resilience ahead.

The Zombies Wore Mouse Ears

Why am I so certain about your fate? Allow me to reveal where I saw the 20,000 zombies.

Walt Disney World.

Shockingly, amid a literal fantasyland of pure, unadulterated fun, I will conservatively estimate that 92% of all the adults (non-employees, that is) I encountered when I took my family to Disney World were unsmiling and unhappy.

“But,” you’re saying, “paying $7 for a hot dog, shepherding whiny children, and waiting in line 54 minutes for a 3 minute ride are not fun! Of course those people shuffled around like zombies!”

You’re right, those things are not inherently “fun.” But, like paying your bills and doing your laundry, those responsibilities comprise a great portion of your day as an adult at Disney World. And if the vast majority of adults can’t manifest fun and happiness at Disney World then what chance do they have when they tackle their “un-fun” responsibilities at home and the office?

Join Me…In the Land of the Living

I assume you’re not at Disney World as you read this. Yet, ask yourself, this moment, “Am I having fun right now?”

If you answer “No,” what are you going to do about it?

Are you going to continue to put off your fun and continue your descent into stress, pressure, poor health, and lower energy?

Will you become more of a zombie today by giving in to the pressure to be a “serious” adult? (Click that Link to Tweet it)

Or will you recommit yourself to manifest your fun amid your “chores” and responsibilities? Will you reclaim your birthright of health, vigor, stamina, and resilience?

I know which choice you’ll make.  And I’m glad you’re joining me in manifesting your fun and happiness right here, right now!

  1. Sadly, this the true for almost anywhere you go these days… the zombies are everywhere! Sometimes I feel like walking up to them and shaking them, screaming “Wake up… you’re alive!!” What a shame… the saddest part is that it’s self-inflicted… they have chosen to accept it. Of course, the good news is that they are free to chose something else. Stop for a moment as ask yourself if your life is fun… if it’s not, what beliefs are stopping you from living fully? If you decide to reclaim your authentic self, there’s plenty of help here to assist you… thanks, Greg, for sharing yourself so fully! NAMASTE!!

    • Hey Frank. Glad to hear from you!

      While I do not relish feeling grateful at another person’s expense, when faced with zombies I am grateful to have escaped that fate. For it stands to reason that, to recognize a zombie, I have to NOT be one myself.

      When I see a zombie, I usually tell myself, “There, but for the grace of God, go I”. That helps me feel both humble and grateful.

  2. I just read your post about your trip to Disneyland and about the zombies in attendance and I have to comment – please forgive my directness – but as the LOA Science Guy you should know – your “judgement” of the zombies is really a reflection of yourself. In the Bible it says we are to live in the world but not of the world. Meaning those who are more enlightened than the others would live in the world, but not be affected by it and further they would be able to affect the outer world. So in seeing the zombies, two things are happening – you are not only at that point in time “of the world” – you are also creating the zombies. If you believe we create our own realities, didn’t you create the zombies or at least attract them to your experience at Disneyland? If we create our own realities and thoughts are things – why do you continue to create zombies? Why not create enlightened beings?
    One reason might be that if there weren’t any zombies – your reality would have to make too big of a shift? Maybe you are not taking full responsibility for your creation ability? Abraham-Hicks says that one person in the stream is more powerful than millions who are not. Meaning one person aware of the “power” or quantum physics as you explain it and using it to their advantage has more effect than millions who do not know or understand that power. So Jesus could feed the multitudes – he was in the stream – while the multitudes stood there in disbelief and would see it as a miracle. I’m not sure if it can happen, but why not see enlightened beings instead of zombies? How much of your reality would change? And how much could you affect the zombies in your life? Maybe wake a few more people up? I am an energy healer and I have wondered if I project healthy, happy people would I be out of business so to speak? If you believed and projected aware beings, would you be out of a job? I am saying this with the utmost respect and would love to have someone that would speak to me on this level in a way that makes me question my reality so that I can expand. Of course I am working on allowing my enlightenment without the help of those outside of me, but the interchange is exhilarating.
    Have a wonderful day!

    • Respect heard, Laura. I really appreciate the thoughtful and challenging questions and ideas.

      I do believe I create my reality. No. I know I create my reality. Because that is how the universe works.

      I do, however, also have plenty of contrasting experiences. All the time in fact. I believe I’m supposed to have contrasting experiences – for one thing, they lead me/motivate me/signal me to continue playing “Grow a Greater Greg” at still higher/greater levels.

      I would not, therefore, disagree that I created the zombies (Hey, I always wanted to be a movie special effects wizard 😉 ). When I realized that, however, that’s where my deliberate creator kicks in; that’s when I begin to play a larger version of “Grow a Greater Greg”. That’s when I change myself according to the reflection I’m seeing.

      It is true that each of us is our own time-space event. So I do not truly “create” you. But I do create my own, unique version of you. And I am in absolute agreement that it facilitates a much grander version of “Grow a Greater Greg” to create a more enlightened version of each time-space event I come in contact with.

      Except that sometimes I don’t do that. Sometimes I create a version of “you” (in my universe) that is no fun, cranky, mean, rude, etc. I agree that those versions of “you” are a reflection of what’s inside me. Thus, that’s why seeing those zombies (or creating them, if you will) led me to remember to start having fun right now – rather than waiting for it to be “sanctioned” or happen “to” me.

      So you can rightly say that those zombies enlightened me in that moment. Or, of course, more exactly, you can say that I enlightened myself (since those zombies were a reflection of some aspect of my state of being).

      How do I stop experiencing a contrast when I notice that’s what I’m doing? If you’ve read this website and/or my books, you know that the best, surest way to do that is to tell better-feeling, believable stories, of my choosing, about my life experiences. Then the time-space event I’m experiencing becomes something different in my universe.

      And, at the same time, if that contrast is a long-standing bugaboo, I work my way up my emotional reference chart concerning my beliefs about that subject.

      I do not expect to never create zombies again. Nor do I expect to never create other unwanted experiences. I do expect, however, that I will continue to grow and learn from those wise and wonderful teachers!

      Thanks so much for your comment. I hope to hear from you again.
