You can change the perspective you will experience in the future, but the choices and outcomes already exist, we are simply experiencing them in the "now". It is like a choose your own adventure book, All the outcomes are predestined, but what we experience is altered in the decisions we make as we read the story. Anything that can happen does happen. we just experience a sliver of the full spectrum, free-will and destiny exist simultaneously, it just depends on how closely you’re looking at it, if you’re looking from the highest perspective it was all destined to happen, but from our earthly perspective we can alter the path our consciousness can take. We use our free will to choose from an infinity of predestined realities.
The soul is what science would call consciousness; it is the awareness behind all living beings. If you connect a lie detector test to a plant, you can see that not only will it respond to physical stress like being hit, or being burned, they also respond to the thoughts of you burning or hitting the plant. they also show concern for other living things by getting upset when you hurt an animal in their vicinity(fruit flies were used in the experiment.) this proves that plant are not only alive and conscious, they are also telepathic and are reading our thoughts. This phenomenon, initially discovered by Cleve Backster, is known as primary perception.
Consciousness is not your thoughts or your feelings, it is the part of you that observes your thoughts and is aware of your feelings. It is not contained within your body as most of us would believe; rather your body, and all that you are sensing, thinking, and feelings, are contained within it. The physical world is a mental construct contained within our consciousness, our souls. Others may interact within the universe or your own mind, but in reality they exist inside their own mental construction of existence. You create their body within your own consciousness (soul) but allow them access to control it remotely from their own mental construction in which they have created your body and allowed you remote access. Within your own consciousness(soul) you are all that you create, your mind, your body, your computer, your walls, the table, the ground, the air, your family and friends, your pets, the clouds, the earth and the stars, are all you. You have created them and they are a part of you, you have given other consciousness, other souls, access to control the various avatars and characters within your mental construction. You have control over your avatar inside their mental construction, contained within their consciousness, within their soul; where they are all that they see, taste touch, feel and hear, granting you access to your avatar of their own creation.
Before the beginning there was only absolute consciousness, and from that consciousness, the laws of space and time arose. At some given moment consciousness decided to begin creating. But how can something create if nothing can be added to it, nor taken from it, and it cannot be divided, nor multiplied. There is only one way for consciousness to create without outside materials, and that is mentally, with their mind, their imagination.
So from the Imagination of the absolute conciseness, arose the entire universe, inhabited by the characters of its dreams. In order to learn more about itself, it chose to animate each individuated point of consciousness, while simultaneously forgetting it was the creator of the entire universe. much like we do in our own dreams (as above, so below)
What if we are the imagination of ourselves, living out a dream within our mind, forgetting we are the dreamer? The idea that there is something; seems equally as illogical as there being nothing. For how could something ever arise from nothing? For there to be something, it would seem there would have to be a period before something arose when nothing existed. The question of where is nothing, is as equally perplexing as where is something? Where is this universe contained? What is on the outside of our "something”? The obvious answer would appear to be "no Thing" but how could it be true that inside of nothing, is everything?
The only logical conclusion is that everything is contained within nothing, and nothing is contained within everything. It’s quite a mind puzzler. We are everything and we are nothing, we are everywhere and we are nowhere, we are everyone and we are no one, we are eternal and we are nonexistent, we are creators and we are creations.
Your consciousness is the same that created the universe, we are all one, we just chose to forget, so we could learn more about ourselves from a fresh perspective. Just as Romeo and Juliet are really just the mind of Shakespeare, we are the mind of "The All", this does not mean you are "God" it means "God" is you. Shakespeare is Romeo and Juliet, and all the characters in all his plays, but that does not make Romeo Shakespeare, it makes him a part of Shakespeare.
