After I'd dressed, the computer proved that history was unchanged. Yesterday's news stories still showed up on BBC News. And yet, the future remained unknowable, which is a blessing because nowadays my husband and I treasure each day together.
Wikipedia states: Reality is the state of things as they actually exist, rather than as they may appear or might be imagined. In a wider definition, reality includes everything that is and has been, whether or not it is observable or comprehensible.
Is love reality?
Is hope a comprehensible emotion?
Is imagination more real than hay bales or the leaves falling from autumn trees?
These are the concepts I explore in the Moonstone Series. In Still Rock Water, Liliha inherits an ancient Egyptian moonstone ring, which influences her to become involved in visions. When Liliha mind-melds with a host, she whispers advice to them rather like a conscience. In Tidal Surge, another piece of jewelry causes the opposite effect on her daughter. Kaelyn goads her visionary contact into committing despicable acts. Mother and daughter wage battle over good and evil thoughts in everyday events of other people's lives. Hence, the reference to our inner thoughts and how they affect our lives.
Imagination produces an idea, which leads to the plot of a book. When recorded and printed, the novel becomes a solid thing—reality. Same with a painting or a sculpture. The objects then go on to become history: the Bible, for instance or the painting of Mona Lisa.
Are thoughts real things? The great seer Edgar Cayce thought so.
Every action, every thought, every idle word sets up reactions, according to the Universal Law. When one thinks a thought, that thought makes an impression on the Universal Consciousness. Nothing is lost or done in secret. Everything is done within the Universal Consciousness, and the Whole is affected by it (as well as all others within the Whole).
This isn't easy for us to believe, living in our own little worlds. Secret, private, alone and separate are active words in our vocabulary. This is due to our current separation in consciousness from the Whole. In the higher realms of consciousness there is no space. Things and people are not separate, but part of a Whole. All is actually One. All is within the Whole. By increasing the focus on self, we have created the illusion of a self separated from the rest of life, but it just isn't so. Our individual actions and thoughts make an impact on the Mind of the Universal One.
