You can choose to see yourself as a flag blown in the wind; you can also choose to see yourself as both the wind that blows and the flag that is blown.
This reality creation stuff is pretty interesting. This I say after sunning myself outside, feeling the wind and warm sun against me, watching a cat frolic and hunt down bugs. I'm going to be given the opportunity to help interview for a position we have on our development team this week. I see it as an honor to be chosen for this. It's something that I've always wondered how I would do at, and simultaneously something I've feared. Feared mainly for messing it up, being in a role that I've never been in before. It was interesting for me to note the differing ways of seeing this opportunity being in this sunny environment.
It's possible to see it as inevitable and without much meaning needing to be attached to it. Given the constant churn of developers on this team, due to a company policy of a set duration of time a contractor can work, I'm a senior developer and thus qualified to interview someone. Still, I see it as an honor since it isn't necessary that I was chosen, especially since full-timers usually do this. The same situation, two possible interpretations; a choice must be made. That, I believe, is the most important thing to note: choice. We always have it. Frequently, I suspect though, this realization isn't always apparent.
I have an opportunity to experience something that I've always wanted to experience. An inevitable situation given what I've described above, or the manifestation of a heart's desire? The thing about reality creation I've begun to notice is that it somewhat flies in the face of the scientific method. The observer is the observed. This isn't quite like saying a human is the eagle being observed. :) But rather finer forces. In the scientific experiment of the truth of reality creation the observed outcome is determined by the desires of the observer. If you're familiar with quantum physics on some level this will sound familiar. The issues become elevated beyond simply asking what is possible and onto what is desired.
This heart's desire I mention is a tricky thing itself. It becomes more important to acknowledge the totality of who you are in determining this thing called heart's desire. By totality I'm thinking of the division of consciousness colloquially termed consciousness and subconsciousness / unconsciousness. The amount of energy, or intention, directed at an outcome determines the outcome chosen. So if you've got some aspect of yourself that you're unaware of for the most part who knows what you'll create for yourself. Definitely puts knowing yourself among the more important tasks to accomplish. Much much more to learn for me.
