You Create Your Own Reality

So much of the reason why most of us are dissatisfied with our lives is that we uncritically accept the worldview and perspective of others as our own truth. Rather than relying on our own experience as a means of knowing what is truth, often times, we rely on the experience (or, even worse, those whom we uncritically accept information from have themselves uncritically accepted information from others) of others to determine our own worldview and perspective on life.

Now, if this information that we uncritically accept is optimistic, we will end up creating for ourselves a satisfying life, by default. If, on the other hand, the information that we accept is pessimistic, we will end up creating a dissatisfying life for ourselves, by default.

Many, who have either been exposed to, or seriously study “New Age” literature, would agree with the statement that “we create our own reality.” But, the deepest implication of the universal law of attraction is that we are totally and completely responsible for the outcome of our lives. In other words, there are no victims and no villains on this planet. There are only creators – conscious and unconscious.

The law of attraction suggests that whatever we put our attention on, and continue to put our attention on, we will eventual get, whether we want it or not. That is, when you focus your attention on what you want in life, and continue to do so over a period of time, you will eventually receive that which you have been focusing on. Conversely, when you focus your attention on what you do not want in your life, and continue to focus on what you do not want for an extended period of time, eventually you will end up receiving that which have been focusing on. And this is precisely the reason we need to be more critical of the information we filter into our worldview.

This law, which suggests, that all of us end up getting whatever we focus on for an extended period of time, is the ultimate assertion of free will. If you uncritically accept the worldview of others (optimistic or pessimistic) you will essentially end up replicating the reality which they created in their life, because you will have no choice but to focus on the information that they have given you about how life is. In terms of familial conditioning, it should then be obvious why we often fall into the constructive and destructive patterns of our parents. Perhaps this is the reason for the old adage, “like father, like son.” It is not so much that we are genetically predestined to act out the patterns of our parents, but that we unconsciously “download” their worldview, and live and operate based on that worldview. And, another way of the law of attraction is that the way that we see the world determines the world that is given to us.

So, if you really want to change your life, perhaps it is time for you to begin to examine the worldview that you have unknowingly downloaded from those around you including your family, friends, religious community, and the mass media. For, the law of attraction suggests that you create your own reality because it is only you that can attract to yourself, based on the objects of experience which you focus your attention on (good or bad, consciously or unconsciously). Therefore, if you want to change your life, all you have to do is change your focus. Instead of focusing on those things that have brought you to you current dissatisfying reality, begin to focus your attention only on those things that, in your heart of hearts, you truly want to bring into your experience.

I mean this literally. One simple “trick” you can use for insuring that your attention stays focused only on those things that you really want in your life is to write out a list of all the things you really want in your life, and to read over that list several times a day, every day. As I mentioned in a previous article, those desires can be thought of as seeds, and our attention is the way in which we water those seeds of desire to bring them into fruition. In time, the will blossom forth into your experience. For, this is the dictates of the law of attraction.
