Reality is born through your desires, which are crystallized into form by your imagination, then given impetus by your expectations, and made real through your firm persistent beliefs. You create your life from the various pieces of reality that you collect and bring together like a jigsaw puzzle to form the reality you experience.
When you create the future you have at least the chance to make the choices for what you wish to pursue, but when fate creates your future you have to accept what comes your way almost unconditionally, at least initially. If you don’t spend the time and the focused energy to create the future that you desire then fate will do that for you.
Controlling the creation of the factor that determine your life is of immense importance. Each moment is created from the massive number of thoughts that you have, either consciously or subconsciously. Some experiences come to dominate your life, while others are fleeting in their ability to have any impact, yet they all contribute on some level towards your experienced reality. The remainder of reality is either created by others who have influence over you or randomly by gambling on fate being kind.
