There’s a cool line from the Harry Potter movies (and books if you’ve read them) regarding the difference between imagination and reality.
(spoiler alert lol)
There’s a scene where Harry is supposedly “dead” and while he’s dead, he’s talking to another character (Dumbledore) who’s also “dead.”
Dumbledore gives Harry a bunch of wizard wisdom, and then Harry asks, “Is this real, or is this just my imagination?”
To which Dumbledore replies: “Of course it’s your imagination. But that doesn’t mean that it’s not real.”
We think that unless we can see something, touch something, hold something, that it’s not real.
But how real are those fears and beliefs that hold us back from living a life of rich abundance?
After all, they exist ONLY in our heads, yet they keep us firmly planted in our comfort zone of safety, afraid to take any risks or any action that might embarrass us to “show our hands” to the world.
The truth is that our reality is an inseparable combination of things “inside” our heads, and real things “out there.”
Everything we see “out there” is interpreted and viewed against our history, beliefs, wants, needs and fears.
What we see as a cute puppy running up to get a pat on the head might be seen by somebody else as some horrible monster rushing up to eat them alive.
The truth is that the reality “out there” is much more flexible that most of us realize.
No matter what you’re trying to achieve in life, all the ingredients you need are literally within your grasp.
All you’ve got to do is learn how to “operate” on reality to from it just the way you want.
Income, love, relationships, health, it’s YOURS.
