It’s easy to get caught up in the drama that abounds in this world. But is drama reality? It’s real enough when you are going through it, but is drama or heartache really how Spirit sees things? I would venture that drama is not reality; it’s not who we truly are.
Here’s an old story that’s a great example of drama, reality, and a wise man who realizes what they really are.
A father and son lived on a farm. In their “reality” they had one horse to help them with planting the crops. The son’s “reality” was that they did not have enough horse power to plow the fields fast enough, but the father was patient. One day, the son found a wild horse and was able to break her and use her to help with the plowing. Now the son’s reality was filled with “good” drama. The father said, “Who knows if this is good or bad?” He knew that in true reality, there is no good or bad, and that drama is only in this dimension.
The next day, the son was happy in his “reality,” plowing the field with the new horse, when the horse reared up throwing the son in the air and breaking his back. The son, in anguish, believed this drama to be his reality, while the father asked, “Who knows if this is good or bad?” The son was depressed and lamenting his “reality,” creating more drama in doing so.
The following day, the son was in bed recovering, when the army came by looking to enlist all healthy young men. But because he had broken his back, the son did not have to go!
So why would we experience drama? Drama is a car accident, a child falling and scraping his knee, a missed appointment, a death of a loved one, and so on. These things are a part of our world and they are “reality” in this dimension that we live in, but they are not who we are. They are only the circumstances of any given moment.
Reality is who we are at our core; it’s our essence. In reality, we are happy, healthy, and whole. Of course, there would be people who disagree with my definition and say that drama is reality. And I would say that, yes, drama is one level of reality, but which reality? Drama is from this three-dimensional reality and it does exist, but our Source sees it through different eyes. Source sees it as love.
I truly believe that we can reduce drama in our lives. We don’t have to experience reality with drama in daily doses. Take the wise father’s example and see “reality” through Source’s eyes. Realize that drama comes and goes, but in reality, we are happy, healthy, and whole.
I would also venture that drama can be beneficial, because it’s part of the nitty-gritty that we are experiencing and it is for a reason. It may not be a reason that we are aware of, but the underlying theme would be about helping us along on our path. Maybe that missed appointment we thought was reality is really a way of getting us to slow down. Maybe we are supposed to release the drama.
I like that idea. Let’s release the drama and wake up to an even better reality!
