Selecting vs Creating Your Reality

I believe that we are each creating our own reality.  But I’ve found that the phrase “I select my own reality” resonates with me more than “I create my own reality.”

My understanding is that this is an infinite Universe and everything exists all at once. If every scenario already exists, then the reality I am experiencing is the one I selected from the infinite options that were available to me.

I suppose the word creating to me feels like you’re making something out of nothing whereas the word selecting feels a bit more effortless. The choices are already there and I am picking what I’m living from the grand buffet of the Universe.
