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 or awareness in energy is always trying to make the invisible, visible, the unknown, known, create order out of chaos and make sense out of nonsense. Impulses are as critical to the evolution of Being and Creation as oxygen is to life in human form. I’ve been open to questions like these for a long time. By keeping ourselves open to questions, we give them permission to share their answers with us. Then we get to play with them and figure out what works best and makes us happiest.
We Create Our Own Reality
Aware Energy (Consciousness) 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, 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, the beating heart of consciousness, 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.
To avoid conflict when exercising power, remember – we’re both one with and separate from All That Is. We’re both products of creation and creation itself. Did the Golden Rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” grow out of this understanding? Quite possibly, it did. In our oneness with All That Is, what we do to others, we do to ourselves.
The challenge of Being and Creation is learning how to use the power of thought and imagination to shape the energy of ideas into a pleasing reality. The prize is a sense of satisfaction, the feeling of a job well done. Like learning how to walk or 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 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’re laid out. Instead of living and learning from the present, we habitually put our faith in ideas from the past to create our future, thinking our lives will change. History proves to us time and again that they will not.
If the opportunity for a “human” experience is to continue here on earth, we must wake up to the tyranny 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.
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” – Albert Einstein
“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
By changing what we think and feel for the better, we change the world for the better.
What others will not or cannot do for us, we must do for ourselves.
