Last night I watched Genius by Stephen Hocking where he put forth a theory that there are countless parallel universes that hold all the possibilities of our individual lives. Every decision we made will have parallel universes where we decided differently and all possible outcomes exist in some other universes.
That means countless universes just for me, interacting with countless other individual universes. This is supported by physics and he believes it: it’s scientifically proven. Many of us have spiritual beliefs that are really ‘out there’ but we have faith in them with no proof at all. Stephen Hawking has faith in the facts and numbers. And who am I to argue with Stephen Hawking? He has proof.
So why am I stuck in this track of my myriad of universes? Why aren’t I in the one that lives happily ever after? Somewhere I have a great job I love and make tons of money. Somewhere I am adored, somewhere else respected or even feared. Am I in all of those universes wondering why I am stuck there?
Somewhere I am putting cake in someone’s face and getting fired. I rip off my uniform right there and yell, “And you can have this stupid thing back, too” and walk out in my underwear, black socks and big, fat shoes giving the finger to gawkers.
Maybe one day there will be an ‘app’ for viewing some of our worlds and choose the one we want to play in. It would be interesting to see what different lives happened if we had made other choices.
We have brought ourselves to this spot in time and space by decisions we’ve made in the past. Even not acting would produce some outcome. It’s our actions today that will determine our future. This is also the law of Karma. What we’ve done in the past has brought us here. What we do NOW determines our future. Except we keep bumping into each other and going off on tangents.
I’m trying to keep this in mind as my shift is 5:00 to 10:00 tonight. Now we are open until 11:00 (summer hours) so if I’m not done at 10:00 I can stay and finish. I’m dreading it. I’m
dreaming visualizing other possibilities. However, the best thing for my future is to just do it and do it to the best of my ability.
Einstein said, “God doesn’t play dice with the universe.” but I say we are the dice, rolling.
