I’ll Be Damned – The Road to Hell Really IS Paved With Good Intentions
Which given his reputation for genius might lead one to want to examine the power of their thoughts and the choices they make with regards to how they perceive the world in which they live. An interesting thought arose today and now I am left re-evaluating a much overused and what I believe to now have been an extremely misunderstood old saying.
We are here to discover and explore and to for the most part enjoy the adventures that we have. Part of the journey, it would seem, is to become consciously aware of one’s capacity to create their own reality. It is spoken of often of late, this hidden power that humans have; a power I might add that we for whatever reason decided to hide from ourselves. Perhaps it is for the sake of the joy of rediscovering it and rejoicing in this new thing we have learned. Regardless of our reasons for denying ourselves our own Godliness for so long we are now on the verge of truly stepping into our own as co-creative light beings with a direct line to the Creator within whom all wisdom can be found. Great – this ought to be an overwhelmingly fun game to play yet for all that we are wandering around the planet trying out our new power by altering our own personal lives we have forgotten perhaps one extremely important aspect of all of this... If we can say with certainty that we create our own reality can we also at the same time say ‘I created this, I created that but that over there – I simply can’t have created it so it must be because of that guy...’
Sorry kids, as much I as I would love to play that 'pass the buck game' it just isn’t in me to do it anymore. If you can say to yourself that you have proven that your reality is a direct result of your thoughts and feelings then your WHOLE reality is a result of your thoughts and feelings. Poverty, oppression, tyranny, war... I could go on but I think you get the picture. Harsh though it may seem it is something that ought to be looked at. An idea that needs be considered, that when you say all you wish to do in this life is to help others, you are in fact creating a reality in which there are plenty of others out there who need your help... Sucks doesn’t it.
I try to find the humour these days in these odd insights into our world and the universal laws that we all have agreed to live by and although I realize it might take time to adjust and you may be wondering how on Earth you might solve the problems you foresee as arising from this particular revelation I have to be honest and tell you that I just don’t see it as a problem. Once you get over the shock you might be looking for ways to alter your thinking – great – go to it, but please don’t be coming to me asking how; my friends I am still figuring that part out and I really believe that at this point it is up to all of us to fix our stuff and stop telling others how to fix theirs or even dare I say that theirs ought to be fixed. I will say it helps to be aware of these things so that you can make a conscious choice on what kind of world you live in. That being said I am not writing today with any other intention than to share with you my own personal light bulb moment – what you do with it is entirely up to you because after yesterday when I realized “Holy Shit – they road to hell really IS paved with good intention” I am a little more cautious about what my own intentions are...
Love to you all
