Choose Your Way

Ever had one of those moments when you made a decision and then you backed out of it? Then you changed your mind again, alternating between yes and no. It seemed that the more you went back and forth, the more you were gripped by uncertainty, the more you were crippled by the internal chaos precipitated by your doubt and confusion.

What if the problem with this equation were that you were coming from the energetic of  decision instead of choice? Decision comes from your intellect, you have a menu of options and you select the one that's best, depending on what you'd like as the desired outcome. It's a surface engagement that relies on your history, experience and reasoning.

Often you know when you've made a decision because there's lots of hemming and hawing. Lots of ‘this or that.'  There may even be a calculation of risk to ensure minimal impact.Perhaps it's that you haven't made a choice, it's that you don't want to experience the results of your decision.

Choice comes from your knowing. It is an act of power that results from a being of sovereignty. You choose because you can and because you feel compelled to do so. It's a deep engagement,an irresistible power, that arises from within you.

These different levels of engagement give rise to different possibilities. You are not a pre-packaged entity, out of the box with assembly instructions and a care manual. You are a dynamic being come to life. You are in continuous evolution through your choice of action. You are the result of millions of choices. Shape your life here and now, your way.

Choose.

    Yes! The discussion on “Being,” (not causing, doing, or sending) reminded me of the “Rainmaker” story. A town in a severe drought invited a “rainmaker” into town to help usher in rain. He/She silently went into a home and entered the Tao. Then it rained.

    Yes! Acceptance, I loved the comment about accepting who we are, where we are, as we are, right now! Thanks!
    The miraculous, magical power of empathy, including for ourselves.

    I just listened to the replay. Wow!
    Yes! I loved the discussion about language!
    Words do have power. Words can express
    how we feel and can contain the energy we feel.
    I want to write like that! Thanks Adela,
    Thanks group and all the people who shared!

    Hello all,
    The tag on my cup of tea this morning says “your choices will change the world”. Adela encourages us to notice. Notice big choices and little choices. We are examples no matter what we do or don’t do. And there are so many watching. Our dollars spent are a choice, words spoken, turns taken in the car, thoughts that are condemning or supportive. Notice.
    Try the no complaint bracelet! http://www.acomplaintfreeworld.org suggests that every time you complain inside or aloud, switch the bracelet to the other hand. I did this for about a month and I felt changes in me down to the cellular level!
    And to support us all in the “I am okay and I don’t need more self improvement” idea that was mentioned in today’s call go to Jennifer Louden’s website (maybe you know her Adela) http://www.comfortqueen.com. I saw one of her video messages filmed from under the bed because that is what she felt like doing. How freeing is that!
    Your choices will change the world!

    Love and light! and Happy MLK!
