Questions whispered throughout the consciousness of All That Is.
What are we?
How are we?
Who are we?
What is Reality?
What is the purpose of life?
What do we know that we don’t know we know?
What can we do that we don’t know we can do?
Where do we begin and where do we end?
What are we trying to teach ourselves?
What do we want to learn?
Questions we whisper to ourselves as Spiritual Beings in human form.
What do we want most for our children, ourselves, and the world?
What can we do today for the selves we’ll be tomorrow?
What is the best way to treat each other and ourselves?
What works best and makes us happiest?
Consciousness (the awareness and action of All That Is, God?) is always trying to make the invisible, visible, the unknown, known, create order out of chaos and make sense out of nonsense. This impulse is as critical to Being and Creation as breathing is to life in a human body. I’ve been consciously asking myself these questions for a long time. Slowly, it is helping me figure out what works best and makes me happiest.
As individualized expressions of All That Is, it is up to each of us to figure out what works best and makes us happiest in our oneness with and separation from All That Is – as both products of creation and creation itself. No one else can translate our deepest inner thoughts and feelings into waking understanding, only ourselves. Why is finding our place in All That Is so important? Because it gives us something to live for. In doing so, we get to live, love, learn, and evolve into something more. By changing ourselves for the better, we change the world for the better.
We Create Our Own Reality
Consciousness (Aware Energy) is the Source and Substance of All That Is. As Beings of Aware Energy, we think, feel, act and react; therefore, we ARE! As we think, feel, act and react, conceive and perceive, we create. To change what we create, we change what we think and feel, how we act and react.
As Beings of Aware Energy, we are both one with and separate from All That Is. We are both products of creation and creation itself! Pushed from within by the Impulse to Be and Create, and drawn from without by the Promise of Being and Creation, it is up to us to determine the difference between what we like and don’t like, what works for us and what doesn’t, what makes us happy and what doesn’t.
The challenge of Being and Creation is learning how to use the power of thought and imagination to shape energy, money included, into a pleasing reality. The prize is a sense of satisfaction, the feeling of a job well done. Like learning how to walk and talk, it is a personal, subjective endeavor that requires creative aggression. It is a great balancing act that makes falling part of learning how to stand.
Remember: thoughts are “things” with a reality of their own and each of us, an artist. With thoughts in the form of beliefs, attitudes, values and expectations, we paint the landscape of our lives. Create a great day!

I wrote We Create Our Own Reality in 1991 in my spare time over a period of six months. It was designed to be a one-page synopsis of what I most deeply believe. Strangely, and to my delight, I found “understanding” is never complete. As long as our minds are set to question mode, new thoughts and perspectives keep emerging.
I found it difficult to bear life until I was able to see and appreciate the magic and wonder of it All That Is. Institutionalized thinking means well by giving us a sense of stability and permanence. However, in a system that controls us from the outside-in, our thinking becomes fixed and dogmatic the more we rely on it. It conditions us to stop asking questions and follow the rules as they are laid down. Instead of living and learning from the present, we habitually put our faith in “sacred” ideas from the past to create our future, thinking it will change.
If the opportunity for a “human” experience is to continue, we must rise to the challenge of limited thought and imagination. We must wake up, wise up and rise up to greater awareness and understanding! Being partners in evolution is the mission of Real Talk World.

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” ― R. Buckminster Fuller
What others will not or cannot do for us, we must do for ourselves.
