heart letter no.10 – the power of response

Hello everyone,

Lately I have noticed more people having a dialogue about manifestation. The general principle being ‘how we think creates what we experience’. Interestingly  most of the focus is on ‘the what’ we experience.

But what if the experience we are having is not so much about the ‘what’ – but rather about HOW we experience the ‘what’? What if our real creative power is in being able to consciously respond to everything – the things we call good and the things we call bad ? What if our true joy isn’t in being able to somehow magically control the universe through our thinking so that we only experience the objects and circumstances we want? What if our true joy is in being able to master the way we respond to every circumstance irrespective of what it is?

Are we really going to experience a terrible world upheaval because we have all been focused on our fears? Or is the experience of world upheaval simply because it is one of the cycles of life? Did all of the Buddhist monks who focused and meditated on compassion somehow fail? Were the violent invasions by China the evidence that actually the monks were really focusing on violence? Or is it possible that the monks were simply part of a process and that they were able to still embody peace because they mastered the art of HOW they responded to the circumstance?

As humans we spend a lot of time trying to work out the right formula for perception in an effort to control our life direction. But what if life’s direction is already its own being? What if the grand master of illusion, our ego, has just conjured up another one: that we somehow have control over reality through our thoughts?
