"A jug fills drop by drop." ~Buddha
Life is like a filmstrip. Each moment is a snapshot in time. Those snapshots race past us so fast it gives us the illusion of fluidity--much like a filmstrip does. Many of the great philosophers and gurus suggest living in the now--- appreciating the moment because it is ever fleeting and created perfectly for you--- by you.
In expanding the concept of life as a filmstrip streaming towards you, each photograph is dependent on the previous photographs---because it is creating a story. Therefore it is your choice to choose the type of movie that is your life. Do you want a Drama, a Comedy, a Suspense, a Horror, a Chick flick--or do you want a combination of some, none, or all of these? It’s your choice!
Choosing to be fully aware and conscious allows us the opportunity to create what we want. Each action chosen is leading to the next photograph or frame. If you continue to choose positive thoughts and actions, you will receive positive thoughts and actions. All that we are is the result of what we have thought (Buddha). This is the Law of Attraction.
So if you happen to find your life in chaos--- similar to a Horror flick, you can stop the tape. Stopping the tape is like meditation. It is in this stillness that one can review the photographs that make up the filmstrip---rearrange the sequence, replace or remove photographs and so forth. It is in this space that you are in perfect alignment for all the wonderful things you want to attract. It is also a space where healing can take place. Things of the past may be reviewed and cut from the lineup because they no longer serve the storyline.
Visualization is another tool to aid you in creating your storyline. Just as there are endless opportunities to create the most perfect movie, there are endless opportunities to create the movie that is your life!
What’s even more beautiful about creating your movie is that you are being assisted along the way. God is like the reel that contains the photographs. Your experiences are constantly being held in the hands of Grace and you are infused with a sense of knowing which photographs should stay or go.
Lastly, what makes a film come to life is the light behind the strip. This is the light within you--- your spirituality. The brighter your light, the greater the clarity you will bring your filmstrip and others---making it a blockbuster. Sit back, enjoy the movie--you’re in good hands.
"You and I are essentially infinite choice-makers. In every moment of our existence, we are in that field of all possibilities where we have access to an infinity of choices."
