A New Paradigm
Before we get to the new paradigm shift, a few words about the old one.
The old paradigm operated within the framework of challenges, conquering, overcoming obstacles. All aimed at bolstering self image and self confidence.
Someone hypnotized by the illusion of low self esteem, image or confidence needs constant bigger and bigger challenges to over come.
In the old paradigm, it’s you against the world. Every day is a challenge. You go to sleep a night licking your scars or relishing your conquests but tomorrow is another day.
Enter the New Paradigm
“I am the author of my own story ” is the foundation of the new paradigm.
I created the obstacles then what is the big challenge? Success is basically guaranteed right? Well sooner or later.
The new paradigm operates in the framework of creativity and manifestation…It’s just me and a canvas to paint on….now wait when I first thought about this I realized there was
creativity and manifestation involved in the old paradigm. It takes imagination to create challenges…obstacles etc etc.
An here lies a very important point…the line between the old and the new is very thin and faint..I sometimes have difficulty identifying where I am…
I mean when I set out to be creative It feels like a challenge, like an obstacle, like a hurdle to jump over. But then inner peace kicks in and I see what counts is .. “Intent”
Its all about how you come to the table..Intent..attitude..posture…state of mind.
I am not here as a warrior..and its not me against the world. I am here to add to the beauty of the world..I am here as a conscious creative participant.
June 15, 2015 Update
I wrote this post in March of 2009, at the time I had not encountered Abraham-Hicks, although I had read the book “You create you’re own Reality” by Jane Roberts who channeled Seth which I know had a big impact on my view of the world. Reading this post today I especially note the last sentence and the similarity to the words of Abraham-Hick. I suppose when you move into a new paradigm, then all stuff: people, events, ideas come with it.
