There is an unknown reality; I am part of it and so are you.
We are choosing our parents, the environment and the conditions we are going to live in. We choose them and we project them ahead of us, out into what we call time. The conditions while established or fixed in one way, are highly malleable and fluid in another so that a countless variety of probable events can flow from them; and I am neither speaking here about probable selves nor about the symbolic portion of the personality structure.
We might be aware of interests and concerns that will dominate our so called future although the particular course of it had not been chosen. As no system is closed, there are no limitations to the self and nothing is predetermined or preordained in that sense. Hence, each individual has a choice within the incarnation, a free will, from the human experience, to choose.
If everything is energy, if consciousness is composed of energy, with everything that implies, the soul, then, can be thought of as a complex or conglomeration of highly charged particles of energy following various rules and properties known and unknown to us. We can in this sense think of a given self as a nucleus of an energy gestalt of consciousness. The nucleus, according to its intensity will attract to it certain masses of the entire energy patterns available to a given self. In so doing, the soul draws opportunities to be created into the experience and then as human beings, based on the free will, based on the system of beliefs, we can say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to a certain opportunity.
In every person's life, there is a moment when one wonders what might have happened had he chosen another path of a certain past event. Depending on the self-feeding system of beliefs and the system of logic created to sustain the system of beliefs, depending on the vibration one finds himself in at the moment of this self-questioning various thoughts and feelings may appear as regret, or sorrow or joy, or happiness.
However, no matter what the answer was, no matter what path was taken, there are no missed opportunities, the goal will be accomplished by the soul. There is no right or wrong choice; they are only different choices. Each choice gives us an opportunity of growth that is drawn into it onto the path.
If one would review his life, one could well see from the choices that were made, where he is presently and what a gift it was that he chose as he did to lead him to his present experience, because nothing is extraneous, everything is part of the process, nothing is an interruption in it.
We can always use anything that is offered to us in any form, in a positive way. We might sometimes assume that, perhaps, there are a few things in our reality which simply have no way to assign a positive meaning to. However, everything, everything, everything is synchronicity and, if we say we are willing to assign a positive meaning, our reality will give us many opportunities to assign a positive label. Consequently we are continuing the flow of allowing our reality to impeccably deliver to us opportunity after opportunity; advantage after advantage; coincidence after coincidence.
There are many ways, many mechanisms, many ideas through which we express ourselves as physical beings, as lifetimes, as statements of reality, as our version of reality. The path to our desires is not always a straight path. It is like a water network within which water can reach from one point to another in several ways, sometimes it can choose the shorter path, other times the longer one, sometimes it can have a higher speed and other times a lower one (depending on the pipe’s diameter), always with curves and tees and valves and elbows. All of these things are life circumstances and situations, they are only opportunities for growth and evolution. And how we work with the energy of growth when the opportunity arises is what changes us, what expands us as we evolve and mature into the wholeness of being.
Each individual is part of the unknown reality.
