Okay, have you ever wanted something to go poof? In other words, just disappear from your life? Sometimes, we want people who are bothering us to leave us or experiences that we don’t like to go away or a pain in our side to go poof!
Can we poof things out of existence? This philosophy of the Science of Mind and Spirit is not a get rich philosophy, nor is it something that we practice to make our problems go away. It is so much more than that.
I know that I cannot poof anything out of my life unless I am willing to change something within myself that is keeping it there. Life is not about things. It is about ideas. Things come from ideas, and relationships and experiences come from the way we think. If I want to leave something behind, then I must be willing to find a new way of looking at it. As I change my perception, the experience will change.
Energy never dies nor disappears. It merely changes form. It changes according to the way we perceive it. We could all be immersed in the same experience and we would see it a multitude of different ways. It would become our experience, according to how we chose to experience it.
So, today, as I think of things in my life that I’d rather not be experiencing, I realize that by changing the way I look at those things, I will change the way I experience them. I ask myself what do I want to experience?
I can experience problems as problems or as opportunities to learn something and grow just a little more. If experiences keep reappearing in my life, then I have a choice. Change myself and the experience will change, or keep thinking and doing the same thing over and over and having the same experience. We cannot create a new experience out of the same energy that created the old one. There might be a different face or a different place, but the experience will be the same.
There is no such thing as poofing something out of existence. There is, however, a way that we can redefine, rethink and relive life in a whole new way. Pretty soon, we will have more and more of what we want to experience. As Ernest Holmes and others have taught, “Life is a mirror and reflects back to the thinker what he thinks into it.”
When we apply this Principle it will seem that something has gone “poof;” however, just remember it is not gone, you’ve just transformed it into something new.
Really, it is very simple. Let us not make a riddle out of simplicity; let’s just start practicing. A way to start is to stop your complaining. I’m on day five (5) of creating a “complaint free world.” It is definitely transforming my experiences. Nothing previously experienced has gone poof; but the labels have faded away, and I am having a whole new experience. This is quite magical.
Love and Aloha,
