If you KNEW you could have it?
I may be starting to “get” how reality works. I think we spend our human experience learning about this. Appropriately, for Monday, I’m including a link to a short video from Monday9am. The person interviewed here, Michael Neill, asks a provocative question: “What ‘want’ would disappear if you knew you could have it?” The quickie, obvious reaction to this is, “Of course I KNOW I can have ANYTHING I can imagine. After all, I’ve read books that say this!”
And I do believe that, really I do. It’s a different matter, though, to embrace the reality of those wants–to truly embody them. Often, I get involved in a discussion with myself about whether it’s “OK” to want “things” rather than qualities. I try to talk myself into finding the underlying desires behind my wantings. The video puts this into perspective for me. It goes along with a philosophy I’m just beginning to understand–that the only barrier to having Anything I can imagine, is that while I can imagine “It”, I just can’t sufficiently imagine [“Me” with “It”]. If I can fully step into the knowledge that I really, really can have the current “It” of my focus–do I still want it? Whether I do, or not, is absolutely OK, and even more, it’s a great thing to find out!
