Caroline Myss is a brave woman and I can totally see where she is comming from. Absolute faith.
Yes I can see Bob's anology. The world is a mirror of your thoughts and attitudes. Your creation staring back at you for in the end there is only one. Only you, and all else can be described as a figment of your imagination.
The created IS the creator. Thus you the creator can have a heads up and look around and in seeing what you created you will see yourself just as your creator can see him/herself in you. Your state of mind is reflected back to you not only in what you created in the past but also in what you are creating now. Remember "what is" is actually history or the result of past thinking.
A half a glass is a half a glass. If you are creating abundance you will see a half full glass. If your mind is in scarcity you will see a half empty glass. In reality the half a glass is what you were thinking of before, your creation or the result of what you were thinking.
Through your looking glass you ad to that reality the perception of potential that you bring to it. That potential is not visible yet but to you the creator of your reality it looks absolutely probable and often it seems your creation is already headed in that direction.
The pessimist can see the content of the glass running out and feels like giving up while the optimist know there is still a half a glass of contents left to work with. Focussing on "what is" the contents will last longer for the optimist than the pessimist. This is the illusion part of their thinking.
Your mind is your "seeër" Your eyes collect data but your mind needs to interpret it thus we all see something different than the next guy BUT. In collective conciousness we all merge in one anothers energy fields and thus we all begin to see the same thing through energy information transformation. We resonate in sympathy to one another untill we all resonate together and thus we will see the same thing. Hear the same music at the concert as one collective entity.
So in one on one meetings you can "out-resonate" the next person with your passion, excitement and all positive vibrations and be sure to remain up there.
This is an exciting topic.!!
