One of my favorite things about understanding the way our mind creates our experience is that it’s so simple.
It only works one way.
The spiritual energy that is alive in all things makes it possible for thinking show up within us. That thinking is brought to life by our consciousness in the form of vivid, sensory-packed, human experience.
We physically and emotionally feel the thought that is being brought to life within us in each and every moment. That’s the only thing we can feel: the thinking that’s being internally generated in-that-very-moment.
Then that thought fades and makes way for new thought, and we feel that. Then that thought fades and makes way for new thought, and we feel that…
…over, and over, and over for your entire life.
It’s that simple. Spiritual energy made physical, by thought-brought-to-life. It’s like an internal movie with gazillions of scenes being constantly projected within us. That’s our never ending flow human experience.
And that’s all it ever is—it only works in that one way. That’s the simplicity I’ve come to love so much.
When you’re feeling full of hope, love, gratitude, or awe—it is spiritual energy made physical when thought is brought to life by your senses in the moment. That’s what’s ultimately responsible for what you’re experiencing.
When you’re anxious or depressed or grieving—it is spiritual energy made physical when thought is brought to life by your senses in the moment. That’s the only thing it can be.
When you’re feeling very peaceful, watching thought drift by, or when you’re completely caught up in your thinking, seeing it as outside reality or feeling it emotionally or physical hijack you—it’s still it is spiritual energy made physical when thought is brought to life by your senses in the moment.
It only works one way.
It only works one way, but we experience it in an infinite variety of ways. That’s the beauty of thought—you never know what you’re going to get.
So although the specific expression changes and varies—thank God, or else we’d get quite bored—the mechanism doesn’t. The underlying system doesn’t change or vary, and the truth of what experience is and how it is created doesn’t change or vary.
You’re always experiencing what happens to be floating through your mind in that very moment. Nothing more, nothing less.
Isn’t that simple?
