We can find freedom in what we aspire to become.
Each of us are the creators of the world that we perceive. We are able to make our life whatever we want it to be; all it takes is the focused effort to clearly imagine what we want, then through ceaseless desire, linked to the belief that our desires will become true. These four pillars of imagination, focused thought, desire and belief, never giving up, and persistence, will create in reality the things that you desire as the master of your known universe.
Our reality is based solely upon our desires that are brought to life by our imagination then given credibility by our belief in them. We create our life from the pieces of reality that we bring to life. No matter how difficult it may be to believe you did create everything that you experience, all that you perceive is of your own making. Many don't fathom this understanding of creation, that we each create our own reality; that we have the power to make reality whatever we wish it to be.
In life we have the chance to control our experiences though our desires, we can create a life that is worth living; that is full of rich, wonderful memories. Life is fleeting, delicate in many ways; sometimes situations can change 180 degrees without any prior warning. Allowing fate to dictate our life is a major mistake, as we will never be really sure what direction we are going, with literally no ideas at all of how things will work. Only through continually imagining what we desire, then pursuing what we want unceasingly with the belief that it will become true can we have any idea what our future fate will be. Unless we take care others will try to control our life and our desires with their imposed wishes; without caution we end up doing the bidding of others, rather than following our own dreams.
In the modern world we tend to be required to surrender our life more and more, giving autonomy over our destiny to others and society. Whenever we do surrender our will to others we give away something precious. Others will tend to try to influence us in many ways, basically in order to get us to do something that is of benefit not for us but for them in one way or another. We should avoid falling pray to the demands that others make upon us, especially if what they want is different from our choices or ideas, or serves no benefit to us. Always aim to follow your own path in life and not that of someone else; for if you follow the desires of others then in the long term it will only lead to regrets and disappointment.
