A Whirlpool Of Influences

There are no mistakes. The events you bring upon yourself, no matter how unpleasant, they are they are necessary in order to learn what you need to learn. Whatever step you take, is necessary to reach the place you’ve chosen to go.

Richard Bach wrote that thought in his book Messiah’s Handbook. Bach reminds us that our mistakes are filled with creativity. They open the door for unforeseen probabilities that change the course of our life. We learn from all our thoughts and actions. The actions we call mistakes are nothing more than a choice that conflicts with our belief in right and wrong. The words right and wrong are associations, and they are connected to our belief structure.

We don’t know where we are going in this life until we get there. We often get there and still don’t know where we are. Our beliefs hinder us from knowing the meaning of the phrase, “where we are going.” In one sense, we never go anywhere. All things come to us through our probability bank. We act out our chosen probabilities and mix them with a seasoned cup of time. That mixture creates our waking reality. As we stir this mixture with thoughts and emotions, we feel the creations that develop from the electromagnetic concoctions that dress our ego. We live in a whirlpool of influences and associations that mold our awareness.

Awareness is where we are going. We never get to the point where we stop expanding. We are always in motion, but we never go anywhere. We are right where we choose to be as we wait to experience another whirlpool of influences.
