Question of the Day


Is life predetermined?

Dear Mike, two events, described by yourself and another by a friend, led me to ponder the following question: Are we really the creators of our reality?

Describing your car accident [referenced in "Manifesting Change: It Couldn't Be Easier"] you reflected on the perfection of it all - the timing and the orchestration necessary for this to happen. From the music genre you selected to the length of time you took to make your goodbyes, it seems you were guided through the motion of predisposed actions. The same happened to my friend who attended the Abraham-Hicks conference recently in Boston. She states that in the middle of the conference she shot up her arm as a gesture to ask a question. She had no idea what she was going to ask but felt a very strong urging...

Question of the Day


Is life predetermined?

Dear Mike, two events, described by yourself and another by a friend, led me to ponder the following question: Are we really the creators of our reality?

Describing your car accident [referenced in "Manifesting Change: It Couldn't Be Easier"] you reflected on the perfection of it all - the timing and the orchestration necessary for this to happen. From the music genre you selected to the length of time you took to make your goodbyes, it seems you were guided through the motion of predisposed actions. The same happened to my friend who attended the Abraham-Hicks conference recently in Boston. She states that in the middle of the conference she shot up her arm as a gesture to ask a question. She had no idea what she was going to ask but felt a very strong urging she had to ask... something. She proceeded to the front of the room. She slowly formulated her question but has no recollection of what it was and why she did what she did (she's waiting for the CD of the event to listen to what she asked!)

It all brings me to this: If our thoughts and emotions are a precursor of what will manifest, then how do you explain the selection of choices, urges, and actions which seem to have been made for us? It seems we are merely carrying out a pre-defined set of actions in order to allow the situation to unfold. And if this is at all possible, then does this not lead to thinking of our lives as predetermined?


Answer


No such decisions are made for us. But we are more than we identify ourselves as being using our physical senses alone, and so that "greater" portion of ourselves does choreograph our moves, if you will, based upon our overall conscious beliefs, intents, and expectations (our end results).
