Hey guys, can I come in a say a few words?
I'm Percy, and I am one of the separated parts in the 'dissociated' system of Patience (which is why I'm using her ID. She isn't here right now, and I am sort of 'driving the bus!')
We separate parts don't always think alike, so I'd like to share with you what I believe.
To me, 'creating your own reality' means taking what you have, - your talents, your experience in life, your health, be it good or bad, and making the most you can with it. Trying to live as best you can within your limitations.
I believe that we are all responsible for our actions. No excuses.
We might be partly responsibe for the actions (reactions) of others if we have contributed. You know the old saying - it takes two to tango. But even then, each person is responsible for HOW they 'react'.
I don't know about thoughts. Thoughts can be destructive if you act on bad ones. If you act on good ones, then good things should happen, but sometimes they don't, simply because other 'actors' on the stage may be following a different script!
So, I reckon it boils down to just doing your best, and not giving up. This way you create the possibilities, but not the reality.
Does that make any sense?
