Reality-It’s a Whole New World. A New Fantastic Point of View

When I was raising my boys, I watched a lot of Disney movies with them. As you know, all those films end Happily Ever After.

Of course, we all know reality is something quite different: The bad guys do not always get their come-comeuppance; the genie does not really appear and grant your wishes; the princess does not necessarily ride off into the sunset with her handsome prince…

You were probably taught a different reality….

  • that you have to work hard, often in a job you hate, to pay the bills…
  • that you have to scrape and scurry to climb that ladder so you can have all those things that are supposed to make life better…
  • that you have to protect your own, because there is not enough to go around…

And, if you suffer enough, you will get your reward in the after life!

Yes, you finally get to live in that gated community…

In fact, our whole world is built on those premises. Scrape, Scurry, Struggle, Protect.

We do work that numbs us to death because it will enable us to buy that bigger house or boat or car.

We don’t stop to give that guy on the corner twenty bucks because, dammit, we worked hard for our money (and he didn’t!)

Our corporations underpay employees so they can increase profits.

Our countries wage war to protect economic security and religious self-righteousness.

And each fear-based, defensive action perpetuates another round of war, poverty, hate, and hopelessness.

“For most of this century, we’ve been fighting wars to enhance our security, and each time, we find ourselves with more enemies and less security.” -Steve Chapman

Don’t get me wrong. I am no stranger to “reality.” I grew up very economically deprived. I’ve worked hard at jobs I hated. I’ve decreed the beggar on the street to be a “bum.” I’ve tried to justify religion and war, in the name of God and self-defense. I’ve accumulated wealth in the hopes it would buy me happiness.

But guess what? None of it worked. Living in fear and self-defense just doesn’t bring happiness or security, on a small or a large scale. Hence, this statistic:

So, something’s gotta change… Can I change the world with one blog post? I WISH!!!!

Can we change at all? I believe the answer is yes.

I believe we change one person at a time. Personal transformation and empowerment has always been near and dear to my heart. It is what I loved about teaching people how to fly and what I love about being a Life Coach, Writer, and Speaker.

I hope you will join with me – and Disney’s Aladdin – in believing the world into a different reality.

I can personally testify that when we change our beliefs, we change our reality.

I’ve seen it in my life and I’ve seen it in others.

Your life depends on it.

And so does our world.

There is a better way.

I can show you the world Shining, shimmering, splendid . . .

I can open your eyes

Take you wonder by wonder

Over, sideways and under

On a magic carpet ride

A whole new world

A new fantastic point of view

No one to tell us no or where to go

Or say we’re only dreaming

A whole new world

A dazzling place I never knew

But when I’m way up here, it’s crystal clear . . .

Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling

Through an endless diamond sky

A whole new world

Don’t you dare close your eyes

A hundred thousand things to see

Hold your breath, it gets better

I’m like a shooting star

I’ve come so far

I can’t go back

To where I used to be . . . A wondrous place

For you and me
