Have you ever started watching a series on tv and missed an episode? It’s not a big deal in the scheme of things, but probably isn’t something you’d choose.
Last week we missed an episode in a series we’d been watching.
Shoot. I wanted to know what the heck was going on. Truth be told, I did see the last five minutes of it, but I still wanted to know how it all came about.
I’m not the only one in the world who doesn’t mind knowing the end of something before I find out how it all happened. Am I?
So I found the episode and watched it, all by myself.
My Darling One wasn’t interested. Not everyone wants to watch a show when they know the outcome!
When it got to the bit where the hero was about to be hanged, drawn and quartered. Well, okay, not really. But let’s say the hero was hanging by his fingertips from the edge of a cliff, even though he actually wasn’t, but let’s just say he was…I wasn’t in the least bit worried, because I knew the outcome. I’d already seen the end and knew that with one leap and a bound he saved himself and the day. I was secure in the knowledge that the end was already defined.
Life can be like that
I noticed the similarities to television shows or movies and living life using the laws of consciousness.
As we choose the desire we want to be realized, we don’t need to dwell on how or the manner in which it comes about, we simply go to the end of the show we’re creating by deciding what the outcome is. Then we continue thinking from this outcome as though it had already occurred and Bob’s your uncle.
Already knowing the end of the show gives us all the confidence in the world and this sustains us through the interval of time that it takes for the picture to unfold.
Encourage one another.
I love this! Once again – thinking and feeling FROM the future instead of thinking OF the future. Makes a huge difference! Thank you Elle!
Interesting post! We do gain confidence when we know how something will most likely turn out. That’s why the older set is pretty relaxed. They’ve done it and been there, so can just watch the rest of us go through similar situations. I’m one of those people who needs to know the bottom line. I like to hear the story if it’s not too long. 🙂 Some of us do just want to know the outcome, then we can enjoy the journey.
Woo hoo Cathy. If we can stay in faith that our outcome is assured, then it gets to be a pretty relaxing journey! We can ignore all those bumps in the road. 🙂
The comment from Paige sums it up rather well. One of the Keys is to think “from” the desire fulfilled not “of” the desire fulfilled. In my opinion, you’re right in stating that it’s the end that really matters not so much how we get there (except it should be in a happy form). Thank you .
Write on, Elle !
