Life is Just One Thing after Another - How You Choose to React is Up to You

Life renews every half-second, so we have seemingly countless opportunities to start again – to decide how we want our future to look.  Because life keeps moving forward, it ends up actually being just one thing after another.  But, this is good.

By acknowledging and taking advantage of the fact that life is constantly renewing, we then realize that our responses, our reactions, to each moment matter because they create the next reality.

Therefore, be sure to proactively choose how you will respond to each life moment so you will have had as much input as possible into what your future will be.  While we cannot control external events, we do have a say in how we shape what occurs.

What We Imagine About Ourselves Tends to Become Real

There is no one reality.  Each of us is responsible for determining what ours is going to be and we base this upon what we were taught in childhood, combined with what we have learned on our own, from others, as well as our experiences.  And it is influenced by our inherent personality.

When we imagine, we are assuming, supposing, believing.  Therefore, imagining has great power.  What we imagine shapes what we believe about ourselves and leads to it being real.  And when something is real, it is true – not just apparent, but it exists as a fact so it is actual rather than imaginary.

Therefore, it is imperative that we are aware of the significance of what we imagine because it will tend to become real.
