“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” … Dr. Wayne Dyer
If a visitor from outer space were to arrive here and have a quick, cursory look around it would seem to them that everything here is solid and singular in form. Of course a slighter deeper look would confirm that some things … such as water boiling or freezing, rain falling and then rising back into the clouds, the change of seasons … do change. But all-in-all I’m pretty sure that it would seem like we live in a 3-D world that is affected only by 3-D things.
Wow, wouldn’t they be in for a surprise if they hung around for awhile!??! Anyone who lives here could easily rhyme off the numerous ways in which the non-visible affects the visible … and I’m not only talking about the woo-woo, new-agey kind of stuff. Just off the top of my head there’s Subliminal advertising – where we all become convinced that we have to have some new product … there’s the hatred and violence that gets amped up simply by the use of inflammatory words … and on the bright side … there’s the deep love between two people that is nurtured and fanned to flame by words, actions and feelings.
The last time I looked words, subliminal-air-wave-messages and heart-felt feelings were not visible things … their ramifications sure are but the actual “vibration” … not so much. Like Wayne Dyer … I believe that our thoughts, attitudes and beliefs make or break our daily and long-term lives. We can’t see those thoughts but boy-oh-boy do we ever see their consequences. I have learned … through first hand experience … that if my thoughts and feelings are less than perky the world around me does an excellent job of mirroring that back to me. So it seems to me that Miss Perky and Ms. Sunshine have the right of it … and I fully intend to continue our little experiment in Living-a-Joy-filled-life-by-being-Joyful for the rest of my days. Check in with me later if you want to know how it’s working … and in the meantime …
Godspeed and Joyful Journeying Everyone
