The Universe is a neutral partner in your life. The Universe does not assign a good or bad meaning to anything-you do it all by yourself. This is really great news! This means that whatever your life circumstances are, and whether you like them or not, are dependent upon the meaning you have given them. So, this also means your life and your story are changeable. Since you give everything in your world its meaning, and therefore, create your results accordingly, if you don’t like the results, you can simply assign a different meaning to what’s going on. This requires doing some work to become consciously aware of your good/bad interpretations.
For example, if you lose your job, the meaning you assign to that situation will either help you or hinder you in moving forward. If you assign the meaning that it’s a good thing because now you can pursue the business or career you really want, then you will take action and move forward in a positive manner. But, if you decide it’s a terrible turn of events and it just proves what a loser you are and there are no good jobs out there and so on, that is the results you will certainly get. The Universe doesn’t care either way what you decide, it will support whatever meaning you give to a situation. So, it’s up to you to become consciously aware of your interpretations of why your life is the way it is.
Your interpretations come from a variety of sources including your family, your culture, and the media and you adopted most of them before you new any better. If you are willing to look at your unwanted circumstances and understand the unconscious meanings you had previously assigned to that area of your life, then you can begin to choose new, more empowering meanings starting right now. If you are not experiencing happiness, inner peace and success with your life circumstances, then I suggest you take a look at the meanings you have assigned to them. When you have decided that something is bad, remember the words of Hamlet “There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so”
