Such a strange time lately for all of us. It’s hard to get a handle on what is really happening in the world or what we wish would instead happen, because it is all so complicated now—collective living, that is.
Relationships are complicated. Associations are complicated. Life is complicated.
Even for the individual, most would say that life rarely turns out like you expect that it will. Life more often turns out like it simply does—for better or for worse. People come and go in your life: some you care deeply about, others maybe not so much. They cycle in and out of your awareness and concern. Sometimes you have a choice in the matter and other times, you don’t. That’s just how it is—that’s LIFE, you say.
Your circle of influence and relationship expands and contracts throughout your lifespan, while you learn the joys, as well as the pain, of loving and caring about the welfare of others besides yourself.
Throughout this process, eventually we all learn that life is an endless loop of give and take, come and go, want and don’t want. We learn to accept the veiled aspects of uncertainty and change in everything we do, as we adjust our sights on putting our next foot forward from wherever we are presently located.
In a state of confusion you might have even asked yourself, “Where do I go from here?” To which I would question, “Well, where are you at present, and where have you previously been?” Those are two answers you will need to first know before setting off in a new direction.
Some would say that we can view our lives as that “play the hand you were dealt” thing, but in another sense we choose the cards we add or subtract from our hands during the entire game. So we all make choices along the way. Often the winning hands are the results of making good choices. The best card players are those who learn quickly from previous mistakes so they aren’t repeated.
And no matter what we expect to happen in our lives as the result of our efforts, we also know that sometimes those expectations just don’t materialize in quite the way that we had imagined or had hoped that they would.
That’s called the difference between expectations and reality. What it implies is that reality disappoints and seldom meets your unrealistic expectations.
What it should actually mean is that perhaps your expectations were based on fantasy and improbability, or perhaps even that the Powers that Be had something else in mind for you, because REALITY is not what it seems to be.
Reality is far from REAL. So it is pretty hard for you to have expectations of something that is a momentary collective consensus opinion, and is not set in stone like we often think that it is.
Reality is a perception. Reality is also a frequency with which we align ourselves and resonate.
What that means is that IF you shifted your frequency higher than your present ability to perceive “reality,” you would likely view a different reality. That’s the entire point of the anticipated collective frequency-shift higher: We will be participating in a different collective reality, and hopefully one less fear-based and more love-frequency focused.
Is that collective frequency-shift to a higher plain simply another unrealistic expectation—is it fantasy-based?
Not in my reality, because I can already feel it happening.
How about in yours?
To me, it’s a no-brainer that I prefer the loving place, but it has to be a collective effort to hold the frequency of that world for everyone. I can hold it for me, but I can’t do it for you. That’s something you will have to choose for yourself.
I choose a love-based reality over a fantasy expectation of it, because I CAN also choose the reality that I live in, so I hold that higher-frequency in my thoughts and actions.
What thoughts will you hold today? Which reality do you choose?
