Erdinger’s Cat

Erdinger's Cat

I’ve been thinking about Schrödinger’s Cat…

The thought experiment that presents a scenario where a cat is in a steel box and is both alive and dead at the same time due to an event that may or may not occur…

There are so many different theories around this experiment and if you want to know more, Google it…

But it got me thinking about what my thoughts were…

Enter Erdinger’s Cat…

That’s the name I’ve given my theory…

It comes from when our band was performing in Germany and lots of Erdinger Weissbeir was being consumed. One of the band members ended up with the nickname Erdinger and it’s just stuck…

But this was a random thought that popped into my head while thinking about Shrödinger’s Cat (I keep calling it Erdinger’s Cat) and we all know the good ideas lie in our random thoughts…

If you don’t know that…start listening to and taking action on your out of the blue random thoughts and inspiration…

That’s where the gold to creating the life you desire lies!

Anyhoo, without going into great depths about the entire experiment…

Erdinger’s Cat looks at it from the basic perspective that the cat is in the steel box, you can’t see it and so for that moment it’s both alive and dead at the same time and the outcome is determined by the focus of the observer…

Like when a cat goes around the corner and you can no longer see it, does it exist anymore?

I’m aligned with the theory that we have the power to create the outcome we desire…

That nothing is set in cement because in any given moment, you have a choice…

You have a choice about how you choose to feel…

You have a choice about the action you choose to take…

You have a choice as to what you choose to believe…

Will it work out or will it all go wrong?

Think of it like a fork in the road…

How you choose to feel…

The action you choose to take…

What you choose to believe…

They will all determine the road you take but until that point, every opportunity under the sun is available to you…

It reminds me of when I bombed onstage in front of an auditorium full of people when I forgot the lyrics to a song I was singing in a talent quest with a band when I first started singing…

I had two choices that night…

I could crawl under a rock and never go onstage again OR I could take responsibility for it, come up with a way to remember lyrics and get back on the horse…

I tuned in and listened to the message inside of me…

I knew I was destined to be an entertainer…it’s all I could see inside of me…

I knew that the fear of regret would plague me for the rest of my life if I didn’t pick myself up, brush myself off and do it again…

So I came up with a plan to move forward…

I had the choice and if I’d decided to look at that event as a failure and crawled under a rock…my life would have taken a path that was totally out of alignment with my soul…

Instead, I chose to believe there’s no such thing as failure…only events to wake you up and tell you to pull your socks up…to take responsibility, tune in to your soul and get on with the show…

But before I made that choice, my future was open to whatever I chose to believe in…

I couldn’t physically see it but the reality that unfolded was the result of my beliefs and the aligned action I chose to take…

It’s like when two people attend the same event and one has a great time while the other one only has complaints…

It all comes down to what they choose to focus on…and what they choose to focus on comes all the way down to their beliefs…

I like to see my life as a series of segments…like scenes from a TV show…

They change as I walk from room to room, each new scene comes with new choices and it’s the choices I make that determine the next scene…

That none of it is planned but the result will be shaken up by my choices…

Each new scene is just like that steel box and the future inside is open to interpretation…

Take a step back and take a look at the choices you’re making in your life…

Where are you playing it safe instead of rattling the dimensions of reality?

That in every moment, you have a choice and your choice will determine your reality, even though you can’t physically see it yet…

What do you see in your mind’s eye? Not the show your ego puts on for you…

What do you dream of?

You have the power within you to create the reality you dream of…

If you’re not living in your power, you can be trying to make something work and constantly feel like you’re pushing shit uphill…

That’s when you know you’re not on your soul’s path…

It doesn’t feel good…

When you’re in your power, things flow with grace and ease….

You still have to put in the work, but it’s aligned action and so it flows…

What’s something you can choose to do differently today to change the course of your life and start steering it towards the life you desire?
