If We Create Our Own Reality, How Do You Explain Suffering?

By Teal Scott

TealScott2Suffering is the biggest issue for those of us who are trying to align with the spiritual truth of  “you create your own reality” and “the purpose of your life is joy”. And who blames us? Who the hell could say that the child who was kidnapped and raped created their own reality and live with themselves? How could we say that life is about joy when people are losing their loved ones to cancer or war?

Our entire reality is being arranged around us like a 360 degree mirror reflection of our thoughts. Our senses perceive this reflection and translate it into a physical experience for us. And so, you can think of it like a learning hologram. When we are born, we know we create our own reality by virtue of what we are paying attention to. This is why it is so easy for babies to ignore you. But pretty soon, we get more flack for ignoring things we do not want to pay attention to than we do for paying attention to them, and the minute we pay attention to them, they begin to manifest in our reality. And we feel like victims. We forget that we create our own reality. 

Suffering is not inevitable. Contrast is inevitable. To know what is wanted, you must know what is unwanted, so this experience is going to contain elements that are unwanted. If this were not the case, no expansion would occur. There would be no purpose to life. The purpose of life is to let that contrast (that which is unwanted) inspire within you what is wanted and then going in the direction of that. The purpose of your life is to follow your joy.

Suffering is the result of not focusing on and following your joy when what is wanted is inspired within you. It is the result of focus on what is unwanted even after the idea of what is wanted instead is birthed within you. Suffering is the byproduct of focus. It is always the result of continuing to focus on what is unwanted on what evokes negative emotion within you. And so, it is always in your control whether or not you suffer.

  1. It is the soul’s choice to have left from where it was created and to experience emotion. Emotion is created from the chemical manufacturing of the glands of the body, put together as a recipe of a cake, and then activated by electric impulses of the brain, thus created a reaction in the body. The human/physical experience has been taught, correctly or incorrectly, how to define what our experiences are. This is joy. This is compassion. This is sorrow. This is fear.” As we accept that all that we are experiencing is a choice TO HAVE THE EXPERIENCE, then we own our created realities. Like playing a piano, one must focus and practice on how to control our emotions, when to experience each and every one, great and subtle. The soul will never die. It knows not time. It will come through physical life after physical life until it has learned that it is just playing a game of life. So, if it takes going through a life of “misery” or one of a silver spoon born in the mouth, it’s all about the experience of being a participant.

  2. But first, let’s define “suffering.” If you accept the premise that we set a general purpose, including negative karma payouts, for this life before we even get here, then “suffering” is going to appear and it will be chosen. And when we get here, because we create what we experience, there will be more “suffering” as we wind our way toward remembering our purpose.

    So if, when we experience “suffering,” we bless it and acknowledge it by recognizing it’s here of our own creation to teach us, then make the choice to move forward by choosing differently (see Teal’s 3rd paragraph on contrast)….. Presto! No suffering.

    More practically and less cosmically – maybe you don’t want to vacuum/dust your house, but you don’t want it looking like it does MORE than you don’t want to clean it. So then – even though you don’t want to vacuum/dust, you WANT to vacuum dust. Perspective and choice. Presto! No suffering. Less drama, less martyrdom. More sanity. More happiness.

  3. I think that question of “explain suffering?” Really begs the question, “Do we really create our own reality, or do we create our EXPERIENCE of the reality which already exists which we have no control over except how we choose to experience it?”

    I personally believe we do create our own realities to some degree. I suppose the bigger question is why are some people born dirt poor in war torn areas and some people born in paradise with rich houses and peace? Past karma?….and if so, isn’t that nothing more than a belief(not knowing.)

    Now it may just be that we do create our own reality and some people just ended up with the short end of the stick when it comes to where they were born and if they are good looking, athletic, or disabled or ugly. It may just be that it is “all luck.” Who knows. But I suppose just because it doesn’t seem right doesn’t mean it isn’t reality. People automatically think, “That’s f’ed up, that can’t be real.” Just because something is f’ed up doesn’t mean it isn’t real. haha.

    • Erik, thanks so much for your comments. I just wanted to tell you that based on my studies of NDE’s and regressive hypnosis, people decide where they are going to be born, when they will be born, who their parents will be, etc., before they are born. So I don’t think it is a matter of getting the short end of the stick – rather, it’s a matter of choice. Some people want to experience that, because 3D is the only place in the whole Universe where that kind of experience can be had. It can be our only chance in our entire experience as a sentient being (which, is close to infinity ((“And Beyond!” lol)) ) to have that kind of experience. So spirits (people) actually stand in line to have experiences like that. Not me, though! lol

  5. But yes, from my personal experience so far I have found a big part of psychological suffering if not 100% of it is “chosen” by the individual whether they know it or not. They choose to suffer. I don’t know about “physical suffering” but I do believe you can free your consciousness from the physical body and thus not feel pain. But as for the moment, that’s only my belief. I also have the belief that you can reach higher states of vibration(consciousness/awareness) and eventually have more control over more things in life. I believe we all are creating what we get but if you are at a slower vibration it takes longer for what you want to show up in your life. Again, this is only my belief but it gets me through the day.

  6. Suffering and other factors like personal traits can be determined thru the moon based astrological chart,very accurately. Actual station in life could have been pre chosen but in 3d world there are methods to mitigate the suffering like gems and feng shui etc.

  7. Hi! I was just reading some very negative comments online so I went searching for something positive and stumbled upon your page. I feel right at home here. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
