“The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you choose, what you think and what you do is who you become.”
Heraclitus, Ancient Greek philosopher
Have you ever asked, “Is the choice I’m making right now supporting the life I want to live?” The more conscious we become of the role we play in creating our life the more aware, accepting, and responsible we become for the choices we make. You have probably heard that what you choose, believe, think, and do is what you create. And as Heraclitus reminds us it is also ‘who you become.’ How often have choices been made to please someone? When you begin to own the power of you and your choice, independent of pleasing others, you will feel more freedom. Your life really becomes yours!
How does acceptance play a role in your choices? Making choices that support the life you want to live are done thoughtfully and deliberately. They are made consciously knowing that you are fully responsible and accountable for them. Will they always be perfect or right? Maybe and maybe not. The point is that they are made by you – standing in your own power! Spiritual teacher and author, Eckhart Tolle, has said “Acceptance looks like a passive state, but in reality it brings something entirely new into this world. That peace, a subtle energy vibration, is consciousness.” Imagine feeling peaceful as you choose the next actions that support the life you are creating for yourself. ‘That peace, a subtle energy vibration, is consciousness.’
Often fear of the unknown or of making a wrong choice creates a paralysis and no movement is made. Remember, if one choice is made and tried and doesn’t feel right you can make another one. This has happened to me more than once! LOL “Choice is the most powerful tool we have. Everything boils down to choice. We exist in a field of infinite possibilities. Every choice we make shuts an infinite number of doors and opens an infinite number of doors. At any point we can change the direction of our lives by a simple choice. It is all in our hands, our hearts, and our minds.” TinyBuddha.com
You may have heard the phrase, “Choose wisely!” I would ask, “By whose standards?” What does choosing wisely mean to you? Imagine, infinite possibilities even when doors seem to close. There are plenty of new doors to open and explore. Rather than ‘choosing wisely’ why not take some pressure off of yourself? Instead you might ask, “Does this choice support the life I want to create? Does it make my heart sing? Do I feel passionately about it? Does it feed my soul?” How will your choices change if you begin to make them more consciously? Remember, your life is up to you to create! Imagine!
I’m sending each of you love and holding space for you as you begin to explore making choices more consciously! Enjoy and have fun during your exploration!
