While the mechanism in a car will move a car, the car needs someone in the driving seat to steer it in the right direction and to keep the car on the right side of the road.
I believe this dream reality is rather like driving a car. If you don't take control of your reality and steer life in the direction you want to go, someone else is going to do it for you.
Examples of steering the car in the wrong direction are the "powers that be" who are projecting fear and chaos maninfesting as lack, diseases, disasters, wars, etc.
For me, taking control and steering the car myself is reminding myself of what I believe - that only One exists.
I then see all that concerns me as manifestations of the One and let attributes of the One manifest as my life experiences.
Some attributes of the One are: abundance, beauty, bliss, creativity, freedom, goodness, happiness, harmony, joy, life, light, limitlessness, love, magic, order, peace, perfection, power, wealth, wisdom and wonder.
For instance, when I was putting out the bin, the bin accidentally fell on my foot. I instantly reminded myself that my foot and the bin are the One in manifestation. Not only was the pain instantly dissolved, there was no bruise.
When I woke up with period pain, I reminded myself that my body and my period are the One in manifestation and the pain was instantly dissolved.
Take control or be controlled.
