Do you know I’ve lived my whole life behind the images being displayed from my optic nerve? That shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone but I feel as it has been taken for granted. Whether its been attending a cinema, hanging out with friends, or going back for seconds, it’s always been the same point of view; mine.
With that being said, I began to ponder on well-known spiritual ideas. Ideas such as Karma. Essentially, what goes around comes around. There’s a similar notion presented in the Bible, the idea of Sowing Seeds. To me, they’re both projecting some sort of message about what IS going to happen in the future. Now, how can anyone tell the future? That sounds absurd… well, not exactly. Less popular beliefs, such as the Law of Attraction, exhibit the same traits, claiming that if one were to think of something, it will manifest due to ones thoughts interacting with the universe. Time and time again, I have come across these abstract thoughts through entirely different sources. I mean, what gives? There must be an underlying reason these examples all portray different styles of saying “you control your world.”
I believe those who have divulged into these types of thoughts might have an idea of where I’m coming from. No, I am not someone with too much time on their hands, nor am I someone who doesn’t have anything better to do than think. But I am someone who realizes, understands, and cherishes what the mind can do.
