What seems Real
Posted by Anne Wondra
Book group included a story of a young girl’s first experience of a 3D movie.
What she saw scared her, sending her bucket of popcorn and giant beverage flying as she screamed and fled terrified, out of the theater. She reacted with all the intensity of her young self because it felt real, as if it was real–instead of an illusion created by a different pair of glasses she was wearing…
It felt real! It was real enough that it tapped into her fears–just as it was intended to. It was a spontaneous, powerful reaction.
Our minds and vision are extremely powerful features we come with. What we see and feel and perceive–through whatever lenses we are looking through–causes us to react-–even when it’s only an illusion... not real…
What if, instead of Fear lenses, we put those lenses to much higher use:
What if lenses are LOVE lenses? Or desire? Or delight? Or wonderful feel-good lenses, instead, that tapped our creating and passion? What if we surrounded ourselves with breathtaking beauty? And what if we could also generate powerful reactions of that corresponding kind! …
We can… This is an important concept … that perhaps we are all more significant creators of what we see and experience than we thought?
What we SEE has such an impact. The lenses we look through make whatever we see, look and feel real … and we respond as if it IS real …
There is much we are still learning about ourselves creators, as souls, as embodied spirits, living a physical life experience.
Religion and science are sisters in their revelations to us. Indeed, science was once a ‘branch’ of religion… and they’ve had their differences. As time evolves, however, they are growing closer again. Spirituality is evolving; Science is evolving; WE are evolving. Our souls are expanding… bringing new god / goddess questions with them. And there are callings inside each of us, that we’re born with… coming to life.
MARK YOUR CALENDAR – Two spirit days for spiritually evolving souls coming in November:
November 14, Saturday, 2 pm – 5 pm. Deeply Spiritual / Religiously Disenchanted … It’s what many feel and experience these days, as their souls are waking themselves up. Like a moth outgrowing its cocoon….There is no fitting back in where you grew out of… Wings are a different experience…. This afternoon will be for sharing experiences and sharing resources for our inner changes.
I have been through this process … and continue its amazing journey. We have much to talk about.
For now, I’ll leave you with a sample… (Listen, take notes, and bring them along next month… This is powerful and wonderful journey fuel…)
Blessings and much love. I am here … for you and with you… – Anne
