I want to discuss the idea of connectedness. I firmly believe what quantum physics teaches us: that everything is energy. If you were to look at your skin, your body, bed, your clothes, your house, I mean anything, if you can look at these particles under microscopes, you'll see that everything is vibrating. Everything has a frequency, and a frequency is just the rate at which something vibrates.
Everything in the world is vibrating… including me! The things that we think of as solid, and even things that are not visible to the naked eye, are all vibrating. Everything is energy. Science has always told us: energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be transferred. What that tells me is that we are all just living in one giant ball of energy.
The universe that we can see, the one that we can wrap our minds around in any way, is just one giant ball of energy. I am energy, my dog is energy, You are energy, I'm breathing energy, the air is energy, everything is energy. So if everything is energy, then that means that we are all just part of this mass of energy inside of itself. If this mass of energy is some sort of thinking-brain type structure or construct, what we think of as the universe or God, or any of the terms you can use to describe this concept, then each of us is almost like a mini nerve center inside of this large brain, or a mini God inside of a bigger, all-encompassing God.
This large brain controls everything that we know of, everything that we could ever see or think of or fathom or create. Every dimension, everything that we can think of is all part of this ball of energy. If we are all energy within energy, then that means that we are a part of that energy as well. We know that what's inside of our bodies is the same as what is inside the Sun and the cosmos. It's also the same structure down to an atom and even smaller than that. Everything is the same.
We are all made of the same materials, so when you really start thinking about it, it's really not hard to wrap your mind around the fact that we are all one entity. Whatever this thing is, I do not know, neither do you. Many religions will try to tell us what it is, but they do not know either.
To make it through this life, it's important to believe that there is supposed to be abundance and life is supposed to be filled with love and joy. The things that you want are supposed to be abundant because those things make us feel so good. It makes you ask; why can't everything be like this? Why must there be a negative side to things? The reality is that there is no negative and there is no positive; there's just what it is and the way that we perceive it in our minds.
I can have a piece of paper that could have a beautiful sonnet written on it, and it could also have the most hateful, disgusting words written on it. What is written on the paper may make it appear negative or positive, but in reality it's still just a piece of paper. What makes it negative or positive is the way that we think of it, and that's the same for money. Money is just a tool to lubricate our way through this reality that we call life. It is not something to be looked at as a bad thing. You shouldn’t be viewed as bad if you have money; money is not necessarily the root of all evil. I don't believe that. I think that we create our own good and we create our own evil, and anything that we see in our outer world is just a reflection of how we feel about ourselves on the inside.
My goal is to get it into your minds that you are powerful beings; you're in the midst of this crazy ball of energy that knows nothing except its own power to create whatever it wants. The universe doesn't struggle to make things happen; grass doesn't struggle to grow, rain doesn't struggle to fall, these things aren’t hard to manifest because they're going along with the laws of nature. They’re going with the grain, essentially. The only resistance there really is, is the resistance that you create for yourself. If I wanted to go to 7-eleven, the only thing stopping me from getting there is me not going. I'm gonna get there even if I'm walking and it is 65 miles away. It may take me a few days, but I'm still going to get there as long as I stay on that path.
This life is something crazy. We don't know what it is, but we do know that we are here, we know that we have this purpose or this thing that drives us forward. This thing that compels us to create, this thing that compels us to help other people, this thing that compels us to feel as good as we can and enjoy those moment... and there's nothing wrong with that. You live in this massive ball of energy that literally can do anything. An airplane only exists because someone thought of it first, a table is here because somebody thought of it first, and I am here because my parents thought about having sex, and they did, and here I am!
They say everything that is conceivable, that is doable, that has been done, started with a thought, so therefore; anything that you ever want to do and that you can conceive of is achievable. Anything and everything can be created. A person can create a situation, they can create a garment, they can create a bag, they can create another human, they can create an idea, and they can create a movement. Human beings can create anything, so if A person can create A thing, then all people can create all things. If one person can create something amazing, then all people can create something amazing.
It's all in your perspective. It's all about how you think about yourself and how you view the world. You should wake up in the morning and say, “I'm so thankful to be alive, I'm so thankful for this healthy body, thank you for this home, thank you for this warm bed, thank you for the sleeping puppy next to me, thank you for my amazing spouse that supports me, thank you for the food in my kitchen, thank you for my bills being paid, thank you for the job that I have and I am so glad I have it because I get to live this life.”
There's so much to be grateful for. There's so much abundance in this world, and if you just focus on that, you can let that carry you through the hard times… remember how powerful you are. We were made in the image of our creators. That is something that has been spoken about in every religion on the planet. A lot of them have a lot in common, and they all say that whoever made us, whatever made us, however we came in to being, we were created in the image of our Creator. This means they made us how they see themselves. This creator knows nothing but its own power to create anything that it can possibly think of and that's where YOU come from. You have the power within you. It's in there deep. It's in your subconscious mind.
Your subconscious mind is always on, it never shuts off. Your physical body, your conscious mind, the top layer of your being, that needs to rest… it’s a meat suit. It’s a freaking vehicle! This is a vessel. Inside me is something else entirely. I don't know what it is, but I do know that it can create situations, it will create all the situations that I send to it, even the things that I'm doing inadvertently.
That's why it's so important to gain control of your thoughts, or at least recognize when you're having negative ones because your thoughts and your feelings determine what your outer world looks like.Your inner mirrors your outer self. There are so many sayings and little euphemisms that have been around since the dawn of time, and they persist in history because they're real. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”, the reason this is so important is; if for example someone pisses you off and you are wishing they get into a car accident or hope they get bitten by a shark or hit by a bus, when you're sending out those images, you're telling your brain to get hit with by a bus or get bitten by a shark whatever it is.
Your brain doesn't know whether the message is coming or going, it just knows that it needs to make that happen because that's what it does. It says, “I'm a freaking brain, I'm a creation center, and I make things happen.” When you are doing that negatively or in a way that doesn't suit your life or bring out the best version of you, you're not doing yourself any favors.
You're certainly not going to achieve your goals this way, and you're not going to live a happy lifestyle in this manner. You need to catch those thoughts when you have them, and you need to make sure that you're focusing on things that bring you joy, things that you're happy about, and ways that you can help other people.
That's what this life is about; the more you help, the more you give, and the more you say thank you, you enter into that give-and-take relationship with the universe. You're entering the law of exchange you're entering the law of Correspondence, also known as the law of attraction. When you're in the place of sending out messages that are good and positive, you're bound to see good and positive things back in your life as a result. You have the power to do this, I know it's hard, it takes work, it takes concentration, but you know what? I'd rather sit around to be happy all day than sit around and be pissed off about something I can't control. This is life. This is my life. This is YOUR life.
