Many around you want to point out “reality” to you. They say, “Face the facts. Look at what-is.” And we say to you, if you are able to see only what-is—then, by Law of Attraction, you will create only more of what-is… You must be able to put your thoughts beyond what-is in order to attract something different or something more.

Imagining what you want and staying focused on reaching that goal is an important aspect of creating the life you want.  Reality is what we make it. If you want a better reality, it is critical that you start imagining a better place. Those who say:
Face Reality are most likely those who have not been able to do create the life THEY WANTED.  And they may be angry because you are doing your best TO create the life you want.  They may wish they had the chutzpah to follow their own bliss and not pay attention to those who told them:


I’ve actually written about this topic previously:
Reality at Wisdom and Life.  Read the first three columns and you’ll get a feel for my take on what reality means to me.


Some may feel they are helping you from making a financial blunder.  They will say they are looking out for your best interest. But only YOU know what’s in YOUR best interest.  If we want to live a happy life, then we MUST pursue our life’s dream. Since we are discussing reality, I would be remiss in not mentioning Einstein.


Einstein has played a role at Wisdom and Life as can be seen from the following link:
Einstein at Wisdom and Life


I’ve asked my readers before what Einstein has to do with Spirituality which is the overriding topic of this entire blog.  Before becoming familiar with Einstein, I would have said that science and spirituality can not coexist. Now, however, I’ve had to rethink that opinion.  


Carl Sagan is another example of how my opinion has changed.  You only have to click his name to see how spirituality and science CAN coexist.  Sagan is the first scientist that I discovered who had a antithetical view that science and religion couldn’t cohabitate.  Read my column about the book and movie Contact at Wisdom and Life to have a deeper understanding of what I’m referring to.


Back on topic, Abraham Hicks quote above is reminiscent of parental pressure, my own topic at Wisdom and Life.  We have to let our children make their own decisions with SOME input.  If they are adamant about pursuing something, it is our responsibility as their parents to support them.  Our reality is different from THEIR reality. Let’s twist this on its side.


What if your child said the same thing to you:
Face the facts.  I’m listening to your suggestions, but I’ve decided that I’m going to follow my bliss.  How would YOU react? Consider for a moment the way you chose to suggest to your child that they listen to YOU.  One of you has to give in if you want to maintain a healthy relationship moving forward. Why not give your child an option.  If they are an artist and want to pursue art, give them an absolute time frame to complete an agreed upon goal, whether it is selling something, whether it is completing a project, whatever it may be if you work together you will find everyone will live a more harmonious life.  
That way you can both create your OWN reality.
That way you can both face your OWN reality.


Be Happy!  Be Well! Be Positive!
Blessings to you.


Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;
We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end.

    I’ve always thought that science and spirituality can coexist, Chris, and I’m glad you’ve referenced that here. And while the facts in life are important, they don’t define us or our goals and dreams. We do need to be true to our passion so we can live life to the fullest.

    With a caveat- if the child had artistic talent like mine, I would ensure they’d find their way to a true art critic, so they would be disabused of the notion that they will become artists….(As an example; there are other choices that may require that dose of reality.)
