One form of consciousness is you, and your own consciousness is what is creating your material reality.
I am a Persian meditation master who teaches the art of joyful and stress-free living through kriya and kundalini yoga. You may have thought at some point in your life, how does creation take place? The God Force which creates is made of pure consciousness-that silent gap between two thoughts. That Void vibrates at very high frequencies with a spiritual electricity that is filled with pure intelligence and love. The formless Mother Wave beneath the atom dives within Herself and creates form from within.
One form of that consciousness is you and your own consciousness is what is creating your material reality. Whatever you focus on, is what you are privately creating in your own reality.
Think of a spider creating her own web out of her own saliva, then living in her own self-created reality. That is what you are doing. In this analogy, the space around the spider's web is the bigger reality (cosmos) created by God's thoughts.
There is a constant interchange between you as the perceiver and the object you perceive. What has now been proven in particle physics laboratories is that the atom and its electrons dance to the tune of your perception.
Whatever life you are constantly imagining, is the kind of life you are creating this because everything, even your own cells and molecules are made of atoms. So be careful what you think!
Furthermore, every time you meet someone or perceive an object, you and the other side are exchanging energies and influencing each other. The goal of spiritual practices like Kriya Yoga is to heighten your perception and awareness so that you become much more aware of the constant inter-play between you and the world that you are beholding. Begin to literally create the life you want today by guiding your thoughts toward the life you want. Humans are created in the image of God to be empowered.
Depression, hopelessness, apathy, scarcity--these are all bad habits of a mind that creates these with its awesome power
just as it can create joy.
