Our Attachment To Things That Don't Exist

"The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion."

Albert Camus


"I Make Stuff Up!"

A few years ago I was in a restaurant having lunch with my husband Bruce. There was a family across from us with two adults and two children, one boy and one girl. The little boy was very active and caught my attention. He was wearing a shirt on which the words were written, "I Make Stuff Up". I cannot even fathom the degree to which this is true for all of us. I believe we are creators, fashioned after the creator of the universe, and I pretty much think that's all we do is 'make stuff up'. I can't even think of an argument against this. I have a great life and I feel that it comes from what I make up about it.

I made an agreement with my Mother many, many years ago. She has since passed on, but I think I can attribute the quality of my life to this very agreement. The agreement was to say, "There Is Nothing Wrong With Me" when asked the question, "How Are You?" I am a person who seeks my version of perfection, notice the moniker, 'CreatePerfection', but I think making the declaration that there is nothing wrong with me each and every time I am asked that question, has convinced me that it is so.

I listen a lot to what people say. I am actually a good listener and I am very patient. I cannot be sure how much thought has gone into the things that I hear people say about their lives, but why bash your life? Why get caught up in the attachments we have made to the things that do not exist, but we keep acting as though they do? We each have a whole story about ourselves and our lives, especially if we are more than two years old. Maybe it's time to rewrite the script. Maybe it is time to think, say and do ONLY what we are committed to.

I really make an effort to be aware of the words I say. I truly do not want to have anything in my life have something wrong with it. The most important thing in my life is peace of mind and most of the time I have it. Our thinking produces our language which enters into the massive quantity of energy swirling around us. The more times we say a thing the more mass it has, and the more mass it has, the more gravity it has, and at a point it will become real. It is still made up, but we do not know this and we attach ourselves to these thoughts made verbal by saying them over and over again. What should we really be telling ourselves? Maybe, that everything is good and that we are whole and complete in this moment.

Here's to 'Love, light, and the pursuit of our perfection!"

Lela, I haven't seen you write here for a while and it's good to see you back. Damn straight to the point and it conveys a pretty powerful message. I will not trade my peace of mind for anything else in the world. It is as you said in this hub, the most important thing of all.

Love from the sky. ~

Hi rawspirit,

Thanks for your comment. Human beings use words to paint the illusions we keep around us. I really like words, but sometimes you just have to get to the point. I looked at your site and I liked what I saw there so I am following you also. Thanks for the fan mail. I left some for you, too. The best article I have written is called, "The Most Important Thing In Life Is...". I think you would like this article from what I have seen that you write.

Blessings,

Lela

Dear Bobby,

Thank you, thank you, thank you TOO! On my path to enlightenment, I have come across some pretty terrific people here on Hubpages. You certainly are among them. It is a true blessing to have people give you acknowledgement, especially for something you, yourself feel so passionate about. I meditate regularly and each time I make an effort to hear God's voice within me. From what I can tell, I am being told to share a message of love with others through writing. Sometimes it may sound like admonishment, the way I write, but since there is no one in here but me, I know that it is me trying to wake myself up.

Blessings to you,

Lela

I like your quote at the end. Since we are all individuals, life is right for what makes us happy, and as long as we can help others along the way in our travels, all is well that ends well.
