not sure if this fits under this category, but there was no other category this topic comes near to... so... mod away, should you think there's a
An event happened to me just a few nights ago, that has proven so many things about the concept I am about to discuss. While the event itself and its
outcome was not incredibly significant, nor was it a life-altering event, it was a true-to-reality experience that affirms my beliefs in the
importance of decisions that we all make in our lives. Honestly, it wasn't the grandest event, but it could have ended up in a very negative manner
so I cannot really discuss the details of the matter here.
There are those who believe in destiny; that things, on a Universal level, are preset to a set number of values or perhaps even bound to a control
system, like that saying "written in stone". That certain people were destined to meet each other, or that certain things were 'made' to happen
for a purpose. While there is such a thing as the probability of making positive encounters based on your surroundings and your perceptions, there is
no such thing as a preset method or pattern of events for no apparent reason. I used to believe in destiny and things like that, but now I truly
belive this is not true. There cannot be a predetermined way to live out your existence. I know this probably sounds a bit corny, but give it a
listen, if you pease.
We all understand the basic universal laws of Cause and Effect; for every action, there is a reaction. For every event, there was a cause and an
effect that followed that cause. The effect would never happen if there was never a cause to give birth to it. This is essentially the basis of
decisions. Every decision is made based on causes and effects, as well as how well we can predict the effects to be within our decision. Because of
this intimate relationship between making decisions and what happens as a result, this is how we live out our perception on life.
This is fundamental to understand, because there are no outside forces that hinder or augment our ability to make decisions. It is between our own
soul and how we think we can make the best out of the situation, and that's why sometimes we make the wrong decisions even though we knew it would
turn out badly. We do make mistakes, and we cannot always be completely flawless on every level. If then, to use their language, we are robots.
Mistakes are imperative to existence on the decision-making level, beause that is how we remember to avoid making similarly poor decisions in the
This is a completely sophisticated arena of thought, because, in essence, making a decisions can be as simple as flipping a coin or as difficult as
having seriously harmful tension over the matter. Because pain and feeling are synonymous with perception, there are decisions that we can make that
can make no impact on life and there are decisions that can drastically alter your perception of existence.
Maybe finding out about esoteric stuff was such a moment? Maybe witnessing 911 or the kennedy assasination was enough to change your way of thinking
about the world before us? No. It was the decisions we made to follow up or to look into the matter that has made us rather concerned about how
things are on this planet. Not the events that happened, or the tragedies that had taken place, but the ideas that formed in our heads that made us
THINK about what had happened.
That's why there are those who disagree and those who are completely ignorant of such complex and sensitive
topics. They never made the decisions that would make them more aware, or better informed.
The scientific basis behind this idea is also the fact that very much of our perception of reality is based on resonances and energy, as well as the
experience we have accumulated, which is pretty much energy within your brain as well as the energy that it converts into perceptions and thoughts.
Energy like photons (light particles/waves) shining brightly from the Sun, and vibrations like the muscial sounds we listen to for pleasure are just
some of the items absorbed by the brain in order for thoughts to come together. How we perceive that through our senses is solely dependent on the way
we developed over time, because our minds are constantly making comparisons to the past whether we know it or not at the same times we are making such
decisions. This is why sometimes you can be truly disgusted by something, and find a friend who is completely attracted to the very thing which gives
This is perhaps why sometimes dreams can seem so hazy or unfamiliar... because we cannot always remember every single decision we made in those
dreams; the events would seem to probably just take place, like the eternal realm of the Universe. The kind of realm where there is no such control;
no such destiny or predetermined way of existence. I'm not talking about predictable spatial phenomena like supernovas or star formation, but more
like the intricate possibilities of eternity such as how or when a black hole chooses to seal itself.
What we think about is mostly based on decisions, unless it's a form of reflection or hindsight, or the like. "If I do this, then that may happen"
or "I'd like to try that to see what can come about." And this is the most critical point of this matter, and this idea is augmented by religions
and belief systems. It is through those patterns and suggestions such as those that such organizations invent or create, that we form our most basic
decision-making processes. It is at that point, where you can control your future as well as your destiny. By trying out different things or making
different sorts of decisions, you may be able to realize different parts of our perception of reality. There may be times that such unusual decisions
can wreak havoc, but then there are times that the same types of determinations can be most beneficial. To use the motto from an organization I hate,
from order comes chaos and from chaos comes order. Neither one is naturally good or bad, they are just a way of telling things apart based on our
perception. Those two 'polarities' are based on how we decide to absorb the events before us. There may be times that you think by doing something
in a certain way, we will be making a grave error, but in the end, it could even result in something very promising. For instance, how chaos brings
order, to put it simply.
How we live here and how we die to exist in a different manner are completely unrelated to decision making and the perception of reality that we face
here and now. That is just a circumstance if you choose to believe in it being just that; a possibility but not a definite happenstance. I say this
because, it is up to you to make the decision to accept or reject the situations before you. It is up to you to decide on how you are going to do
things, or not to do them at all, as well as how you may allow certain things to influence your perception of the life before you.
It's all up to you.
