"We can always choose to perceive things differently. You can focus on what's wrong in your life or you can focus on what's right."
She is right of course. I do know that every moment I am choosing between heaven and hell. In every "now", I am choosing between the ego and my Spirit - the angel on my shoulder or the devil.
And so I present to you, dear reader, a fork in the blog.
I wrote two blog posts: one from fear and the other from love.
Which teacher do you choose?
- Do you choose the ego who teaches fear, the what if's, the past and the future? The ego who analyzes and separates and divides? The ego who convinces you to doubt, worry and defend? The ego who throws tantrums and screams loudly, "What about ME???"
- I do. Unfortunately I do it often. In a state of worry and over-thinking, I wrote this post: Foundation cracks and Settling
- Or do you choose your True Self? Your Spirit who rests quietly in the certainty of this moment? The divine You who knows that all is well and you are always surrounded by love? The quiet and gentle laughter of God who waits patiently for you to listen beyond your screaming ego?
- I do that too. Unfortunately, not often enough. When I chose to listen to Spirit, I wrote this post: The Cure for Paranoia
As always, in every moment, it is your choice.
