"Take your life in your own hands, and what happens? A terrible thing: no one to blame." Erica Jong
Each passing moment brings with it a brand new opportunity to begin creating exactly what you want in life. All it takes is focus and remembering that you are the architect of your own life.
That’s quite exciting though. Isn’t it? Knowing that you can create and enjoy whatever you want in life? The question is – do you know what you really want? Are you being honest with yourself about what you want and why you want it.
The Ego Self is a tricky little bugger at times and will make you think you don’t want something when IT actually wants it. What I mean by that is, we complain about hardships in life and sometimes moan because “everything’s so awful” and yet the Ego Self is actually delighting in what’s going on because it’s keeping you in a place of stagnation. There can also be huge secondary gains from moaning about “everything being awful”: While you’re moaning people are feeling sorry for you; while you’re moaning you’re not actually taking responsibility for moving yourself forward; while you’re moaning there’s no fear of failure; while you’re moaning, there’s no fear of Success!
The Ego Self would have you believe one of the best ways of getting attention and love from others is by having them feel sorry for you. At first, this can seem to be true as people run about doing whatever they can for you. Eventually though, people can become tired of it and/or frustrated because you appear not to be taking responsibility for helping yourself move forward. That just makes the situation worse and you end up feeling dreadful. Plus the people who care for you can find themselves detaching from the negative vortex of energy being created.
Out of all this, the thing to remember is that we are extensions of The All That Is. It is in everything and it flows through everything. Here’s the thing: God didn’t make life difficult for us – we’re quite capable of doing that for ourselves! What God did do, is give us the power to create what we want and all we need do is take responsibility for where we are headed.
The past has happened. No point dwelling on that. No point going on and on about ‘what a dreadful childhood’ you might have had. Or “what my last partner did to me”. The point is it has happened. Will you wallow in the energy of what was, or will you get excited and create something even better for yourself?
Every passing moment brings with it wonderful opportunities for creating exactly what you want. Did I say that already?! I think I did. And do you know what, I’ll say it again…. Every passing moment brings with it wonderful opportunities to create exactly what you want.
What do you want? What would make you feel better than where you are right now? What would make you so happy right now that you could burst with joy? When you are connected with the beautiful, unconditionally loving, selfless Deep Soul within, there is nothing you could want which would harm anyone else, or yourself. When you love yourself enough that you begin to create that which would bring you even more joy, you help others to do the same.
So as you begin this day, and every day, gift yourself permission to enjoy each moment as it arrives. Begin to get excited about the life you are creating for yourself, rather than wallowing in “what has been”. Affirm to yourself each day: Just for today, I take joyful responsibility for creating the life that I want.
Life was meant to a wonderful and enjoyable opportunity to grow and evolve – do you dare allow yourself to experience that? ;-)
