So often we find ourselves at the edge, sometimes almost daily, to our world and wondering whether to jump or not. What if, for just this posting our choices were far more than just jump, would you consider other options?
Imagine if you will wandering towards the point of decision and what appears to you is the only option of jumping. Taking that leap, plugging your nose and jumping into the vast deep expanse of the unknown becomes a terrifying decision. Perhaps you have jumped so many times before that it isn’t terrifying but none-the-less a bit of fear appears on the horizon and a decision must be made.
Now imagine as you walk to the edge standing beside you is another you. They turn and wink at you pull out a long expansive bridge, place it across the chasm in front of you and walk across leaving you standing there. As you gape at them in disbelief, another you walks up, smiles, turns to their right and walks off. Now you are completely boggled at the scenes appearing before you, forgetting why you are standing here, scratching your head trying your best to make sense of this all and yep, you guessed it, another you appears.
Being brave you venture to speak to the aspect of you in hopes of gleaning where they have come from only to find that you are way to busy to stop and chat. You toss a lasso to the other side and pull the chasm close to you and step across.
Falling to your seat after this last meeting of self your mind spins with no explanation appearing. This can’t possibly be happening. Who are all these You’s and why so many options?
Parallel realities exist and are easily accessible. There isn’t just one option to all our decisions and yes there isn’t just one Right option to our decisions. Philosophers, poets, and writers have all spoken about alternate and parallel realities; Alice in Wonderland, The Matrix, The String Theory, shamans, and Plato to name a few.
The next time you are standing at the edge deciding to jump, pause, sit down, look to your left, look to your right and see who is standing beside you, pour a cup and ask what they think is an option. You might be surprised at all your options. Take the leap and Jump!
