Many Worlds: Timelines And Destinies
Here we are, at a crossroads in history! How did we get here, and where do we go from here? These are the questions many of us are asking ourselves these days. To begin with, we are each on a timeline heading out toward a future outcome. These individual timelines are directed by our personal choices, but as a whole, they create a collective timeline as well.
There is a difference between fate and destiny, however. Fate is the default destination of our lives. It is the result of the tangle of unconscious choices we have already made. Many of these choices are even the legacies of our ancestors before us. Like a bowling ball barreling down the lane, our lives have momentum in a certain direction, based on every decision we have ever made. When those choices are fueled by fears, or past trauma, they funnel us into a fate defined by those parameters. If I make a choice to keep you happy, for example, because I, like my mother before me, fear being alone, I have chosen a world where my happiness is now contingent upon yours. Further, from this place I will only attract people into my life who are never satisfied, and believe it is my duty to keep them happy, so I continue to act out this drama. This is the “world” I have chosen to live in. As long as I have this fear, this is my fate. Destinies, on the other hand, are chosen consciously. They require addressing the fears and imprints that keep us in these redundant default pathways, and making conscious choices to step free of them, instead.
Quantum theory tells us that at the energetic level, the world is suspended in a probability state, where many things are possible, yet nothing is certain, until a measurement is made. The Paul Davies’ Many Worlds Interpretation of quantum theory, postulates that other worlds, defined by different parameters, exist as well; we just do not inhabit them until we make different choices. This parallels shamanic principles that state Creation is an ongoing process we are each involved in. We are all co-creating our worlds through conscious dreaming.
All of us are looking down the fan of possible outcomes in this time of upheaval, not only for the best possible outcomes for our personal lives, but for those of our culture, the species, and even the planet. Each choice we make, or by default do not make, creates the world we will live in next. We do have free will, however, and we can choose the world we want to live in next, but free will is only free only when we choose from the heart, not from our fears. There are a great many things to be afraid of these days, and they are all up for examination. This is a time to ask yourself what it will take for you to choose something different. What anchors you into this world, at this time?
It is a time for the visionaries among us to step up and dream a new world into being. What world do we want to create instead? Our collective fate is standing on our doorstep. History has a tendency to repeat itself because the fears at the core of humanity are not addressed, locking us forever into repeating dramas based on power and greed. What hard choices do we need to make to align with a brave new world? Change is scary for everyone, but there are conversations that need to be had. What fears must you dismantle to step into your brave new world? It is time to look up from our fates, individually and collectively, and reach for our destinies!
