Your choices and actions resolve possibilities, yielding manifestation. They also influence what's possible in the future. This is more obvious looking at children and lineages, and less directly reinforced across the many people you've touched in your life's meandering. Even so, each touch is consequential force, influencing the paths of photons and electrons.
Our passage spins eddies in the ether, alters trajectories by partial degrees. Downstream in time, our minuscule effects shift reality by miles, months, and momentous convergences. Like bumping a cannon before it fires. Oh, how our effects combine! Entire populations sway to an unconscious beat, and we marvel at a dance we've all created with the energies passed on from long ago.
Perhaps you were once a Queen, or her stable boy. Does it matter? Perhaps the stable boy's kindness toward the prince saved the kingdom. Perhaps the Queen hid the stable boy's secret right to the throne. Fragments making ripples. Changing worlds.
What beautiful energies do you cultivate within, and send onward to all yesterdays and tomorrows? Our effects are certainly larger than anything we observe in our immediate human moments. Our collective struggle today shows us that the choices of any prior Self meant far more than it understood, and could ever hope to understand.
Yet such linear story-making contradicts timelessness. The Earth Is. I AM. You are. We exist. Time is a perceptual game offering another way to experience what we are. Reasoning its machinations is a distraction, like playing a video game while trying to do its math. Embrace the now as you can, and see it all converge within. Recognize your Self and your influence there - across all times - as timeless.
Let go this preoccupation with past identities and reincarnation chains, and instead recognize each particle of us influences all Earth's possibilities. Right now, forever. Then we see that our consciousness, as devil or saint, sends ripples contributing to all that happens here. To all that's inherited, and to all we'll do with it.
MattSeven is a name I intuitively connected with in the early 2000's, using my legal name Matt. In 2013 I learned "Seven" represented the extradimensional collective from which it seems my individuality originates. MattSeven represents an effort to integrate the individual, collective, lower, and higher as one coherent consciousness.
