You Can Trust Reality

You can trust reality, and you can trust it completely. The reason you can trust reality is: absolutely nothing takes place outside of the “natural laws” established by Source, and those laws have all been established from a place of incredible wisdom and love.

The ego typically has serious trouble with this. It thinks: “How can I trust reality when it is so dangerous? Reality is cold, merciless, unrelenting. Reality has cruel people in it. Reality is unfair. Reality is full to the brim with suffering!” And thus the idea of actually trusting reality seems impossible.

Reality was built for Source by Source, so that you- as a part of Source- could experience exactly all that you are experiencing now in your life. Reality is not some ship adrift out at sea ready to sink unattended, or some happenstance, or some forgotten creation- it is perpetually and indefinitely and completely within the loving Source that created it. You are, too, even if you are not consciously aware of that fact.

How can such a loving Source permit us to be in a place where we may experience so much lack of love? You are so loved by Source that you have been given the opportunity to temporarily forget that you are unconditionally loved, so that you might actually experience real contrast and thereby better experientially understand what that love truly is, forever. You have been given the gift of the opportunity to “play real life,” the gift of being able to make meaningful choices and to experience the results, the gift of being able to live as someone experiencing defined perspectives- and this physical reality is simply the stage. Its purpose is being fulfilled, and that purpose is ultimately loving.

All the laws that take place to govern the workings of the world do so for the ultimate purposes of Source, which are all motivated by love- which means ultimately for our benefit! For instance, even the most horrendous pain can be a profoundly valuable experience in the grand scheme. As we learn to trust reality for what it is, it can better work with us to further the grander divine awareness-expanding intentions that often elude our limited human minds.

Recognize also that the entire stage of reality takes place within your awareness of it. It is not an independent external thing as it appears on the surface- it is something that takes place within your awareness. The reality you experience then is a reflection of what YOU are, right now. Allow it to function as the mirror it is meant to be! You can trust the mirror- it is only faithfully serving the purpose of reflecting back to you what you believe about it.

Intent vs Action

From the divine perspective, what is important is not necessarily what we do, but why we do it. Our deepest intent is what matters. And our deepest intent is always totally unobscured and plainly obvious to the spirit. In fact, every intent we’ve ever held and every action we’ve ever taken in our entire lives is clearly remembered. When our lives are reviewed after their completion, what is applauded is not necessarily what we did, but when we truly acted from selflessness and love. Genuine unconditionally loving intent is the key, not the actions themselves.

But loving intent will lead to loving action. Intention causes action. Personally mobilized action cannot take place without intention.

When we pass we will be fully aware of the full impact that we had on everyone we ever affected in our entire lives. That impact will include the many effects that our physical actions had on others. But furthermore, our impact far surpasses even the effects of our actions: our intent itself – our love itself – has a tone that rings out through Creation! We are communicating with and “nudging” this reality and each other with “who we really are” every day, and that is also a significant part of the impact we have while we are here! In that sense, intention is action.

Be brave then while you are here not only to discern the many effects of your actions, but also the quality of your intent- for what you really are, the love or fear that you really carry, has far more impact than you can see with your physical eyes.

You Can’t Trick Your Intent

Your most fundamental power, the one that exists beyond all of the boundaries of realities, is your intent. Your intent is a force that always belongs to you. The context in which you are able to make choices may change drastically: your constraints may change, your environment may change, your body or your knowledge or your circumstances may change- but your power to choose and to wield intent itself always remains. The effects may not be obvious, depending on what reality rule-set you are participating in, but your intent always has an effect of some kind.

Interestingly though, what we are actually intending is not always obvious to us. This is because the portion of ourselves we call the “ego-mind” has often buried our true intent deep beneath a complex pile of beliefs, judgments, and justifications. We are often not ready to examine the true nature of ourselves, because we are full of fear: fear of the unknown, fear of pain, fear of negative perceptions that we have bought into along our walk in the physical. And because our true nature is currently obscured, many times we believe we are making choices from one motivation, when in fact our true motivation is something quite different. Many times we believe we are motivated by love, when in fact we are motivated by fear.

No matter what your mind says, you cannot ever trick your intent. Your intent is always exactly what it is. It is a fundamental force. Your intent is YOU- it is the very deepest ultimate “what and why” of your motivations and choices, the reason and movement of your spirit. It is not the choices themselves. It is not the intellectual reason you are making the choices.

We are here on Earth to develop the quality of our intent by being something within a context. We are here to actually experience what it is like to live in a world where billions of conscious participants exercise their intent within a shared rule-set, and to grow in a real way towards beings who genuinely make choices out of love, rather than fear.

Since that is why we are here, it is very beneficial for us to take time to genuinely search for what our intent really is. Doing so takes remarkable courage, but for the individual who is ready to accept responsibility, face their fears, and truly serve others, the universe itself will respond.
