Besides LOVING his movies, Will Smith is impressing me with how much he "gets it" - and how he's living "it" - sharing "it" - teaching "it".
I've watched many of his interviews. This one is unique. It's a set of clips - well laid out - about living the life of your dreams...about possibilities, potential, and believing that you can create anything you want with _______, ________, and _________.
Watch and let it really sink in.
My Favorite Quote of His
"Our thoughts, our feelings, our dreams, our ideas are physical in the Universe...If we dream something, if we picture something, if we commit ourselves to it, that is a physical thrust toward realization that we can put into the Universe...We are going to bend the Universe and command it - demand it - that the Universe Become what we want it to be." -- Will Smith
Why do I like it?
Because I wholeheartedly agree with the first half. Our thoughts, dreams, feelings and ideas are physical energies interacting in our world.
The second half questions a belief of mine about whether we really do bend the Universe to our wants and desires? Or rather, if we successfully align ourselves with the Universe so that we can finally co-create in harmony with it.
My belief is that you can create exactly what you want by creating it in partnership with the Universe. You can let the Universe know what you want by connecting to it through meditation, mindful action, prayer and more. You work in concert with the Divine.
Demanding that the Universe bend to our wants is optional -- perhaps it is even a reflection of his personality style? And since people of all faiths, belief systems, and personalities, do create their dream lives -- then I'd say discover what works for you.
You co-create your reality.
No need to demand, command or bend. (Or for that matter to pray, meditate or take mindful action.) Just a need for openness to the More and acceptance that you wield more power than you may ever know. (That last one's a doozy. You may want to read it again.)
So, tell me, which quote is your favorite? and why?
