A Universe of Infinite Potential: Conscious vs. Unconscious Reality
December 27, 2013 3 Comments
Insanity is always a probability, but never a certainty.
For me, I see being comfortable as ultimately being a negative aspect of life when abused. Short term comfort is only achieved from long-term consistent conscious effort of pursuing your passion in life. If there is no conscious effort focused on change and growth, you are faced with a stagnant state of reality. This stagnant state of reality results in a life of struggle, rather than a life of comfort.
I want to make it abundantly clear that this is just my point of view as a single person. By no means do I push my opinion onto whom ever should read this.
The way I see things, many of us are living our lives in an unconscious trance of negativity and struggle. This struggle is a mere illusion. This illusion is conquered by the conscious pursuit of your ultimate desires. There is no room for any other pursuit, as any other pursuit in life will leave you feeling empty, and unfulfilled in the end.
When we get stuck in a state of comfort, we lose sight of the bigger picture. The suburban lifestyle is shoved down our throats so violently that we’ve become a horse with blinders. We don’t even know that we have a choice to look right, left, up or down. We are all tunnel visioned to go to school, then go to college, and then get a degree in something you think you might like. Often times, many of us discover that our initial path and pursuit is not the best fit for us. This is perfectly normal to experience, and you are not alone in your beliefs.
Remember when that huge refrigerator cardboard box was a rocket ship?
A race car and you were in first place going really fast?
Where did that imagination go?
Why did we let society dilute it down to nothing?
I’m not saying a 23-year-old should go play with a cardboard box. What I am saying is instead of letting the world around you crush that playful and boundless imagination, allow yourself to grow with it.
Now at 23 years old, instead of a cardboard box, I have a canvas in which I can make all of my dreams come true. By all means some people are happy in that lifestyle of being comfortable, and there is no problem with that at all. I’m simply saying that is not for me. There are too many things out there that I want to see and experience.
This world is a dream. There are so many things that we can’t even imagine, and yet they are here waiting to be seen. I dream every single day and for at least a half hour. I let my mind go outside and play. I take what I can from my dreams, and attempt to make them as real as anything. It is necessary for keeping our chin to the clouds, and the infinite realm of possibility.
I know for a fact I’ve found my canvas, what’s yours?
A Universe of Infinite Potential
The universe you exist in possesses the trait of infinite potential. This potential can only be achieved by an individual if he or she is willing to commit to excellence. Committing to excellence requires discovering your true passion(s), and the capability to pursue these passions relentlessly without being affected by negative external stimuli. No easy task.
We all have unique talents, gifts, and abilities. Most of us won’t be able to recognize them initially, due to the fact that the society we live in downplays the role of independence. Society wants us to conform, and obey orders, whether they be in our best interest or not. Society sets the trap, and if you are not careful, you will get caught in the web of illusion. The illusion is simply an illusion, and is able to be overcome with conscious effort on your part.
The illusion of your reality stems from the information you digest, whether consciously, or unconsciously. The unconscious digestion of information occurs every time you turn on your television, or read your local newspaper. We are constantly bombarded with negative energy, and this negative energy ultimately creates fear.
Fear is simply another illusion in itself, easily conquered with the realization of your infinite potential. You are not limited in what you can achieve, but this concept is hard to grasp when you unconsciously pursue what society “expects” of you.
As individuals, we have the conscious capability to dictate our own reality. Our minds shape our reality, whether positive or negative. If your mind is full of deep unconscious beliefs of limit and scarcity, your reality will reflect that. The law of attraction is at work 24/7 whether you believe it or not. You attract not what you think, you attract what you are. You attract the vibration your put out into the universe at large.
What are your intentions, and are they in your best interest?
Is this best interest good for the society as a whole?
Are you being selfish in your pursuit of happiness?
Creating Your Default Vibration
Your default vibration defines who you are. This vibration defines the effect you have on other people (the whole), whether positive or negative. A positive vibration results in positive results . A negative vibration results in constant struggle and fear. The vibration you put out is solely up to you to manage. There is no one that can affect your vibration unless you allow them to. Allowing a constant flow of positive energy by surrounding yourself with positive people is essential for reaching your greatest potential in this temporary life.
If you are unsure of the vibration you are currently putting out, take a look at your current relationships. Are they for the most part positive and enriching? Are these relationships built around growth? Do these relationships entail trust, and openness to discovery? Are these relationships enhancing your life, or are they limiting your potential to grow?
Show me your friends, and I will show you who you are.
The people you surround yourself with constantly are the people who shape your conscious reality. Are these people working along with you on a pursuit of growth? Are these people passionate about their pursuit, or are they merely living to “get by?” Take note of the relationships in your life that lift you up, and also those that bring you down. Is it worth maintaining a relationship even though it ultimately brings you down?
You owe nothing to anyone.
You owe yourself the opportunity to grow as a conscious individual.
Becoming a Conscious Individual
Developing your consciousness is the foundation for living a healthy, and rewarding life. If you are unconsciously wandering throughout life, expect to get nowhere. If you are consciously seeking opportunities to grow and prosper, you are on the path towards achieving your highest potential. Your highest potential can only be recognized after you recognize what you truly value in life. Once these values are recognized and accepted, your life receives direction and momentum in a positive direction.
Assume that your highest potential may never be reached. Assume also that knowing you may never find the “ultimate answer” shouldn’t prevent you from pursuing a development of your consciousness. No one on this planet can answer the ultimate question of our existence. We exist in an infinite realm of possibilities, and an infinite number of potential timelines of results. Favorable results are the result of conscious effort into achieving balance of your reality. Balance is achieved when we recognize the important values in our lives, and pursue them to the best of our ability.
What does the universe value?
Does it value chaos?
Does it value balance?
You exist entirely in your own unique universe, subject to external influence if you allow it. Each relationship you have in your life is a direct reflection of the relationship you have with yourself. Having a negative relationship with yourself is a potential for disaster. If you don’t believe in yourself, who else will believe in you? Take the time to assess your beliefs in yourself, and take note of any negative beliefs that may arise. These beliefs are once again simply illusions, capable of being overcome by conscious effort and the pursuit of positivity.
If you are new to the path of conscious growth, you are certainly not alone. It took me almost 18 years to realize that I was ultimately in charge of my temporary life, and no one else. I only allow time for developing positive relationships. I don’t allow room for negative relationships. I focus on enriching my positive relationships, and I leave no room for negative influence to affect me. When I recognize negative energy being directed toward me, I simply laugh and allow it to take its course. Once it takes it course, it can in no way affect me, or the way I feel.
You are the leader of your own life. You lead yourself in any direction you choose. You get to choose who you associate with, and you get to choose how these associations affect you. Take some time today to analyze which relationships in your life you value, and which relationships keep you blocked from achieving your highest potential. Make the conscious effort to surround yourself with positive energy, and deflect the negativity when it arises. Never settle for less than you are worth, and never be satisfied with your position in life. There is always room for growth, no matter how comfortable you become in your day-to-day life.
Create the life you truly deserve, and stop at nothing to accomplish this task. It is easier said than done. You don’t have to see the entire staircase, just take the first step.
