Most of us are determined people. Let’s face it, America was built on determination. The fundamental exercise of the Human Will is paramount in our self discovery, our livelihoods’ , our family and acquaintances in social settings, education and environment. We are what we say we are. “Our choices create our reality“, rings stingingly in our minds. And that is how we were created in physical and metaphysical form, in the first place. The human tide of consciousness would be nothing without the presence of Will and determination.
Many people however, are drifting in their lives. Society rushes about seeking it’s own answers to meaning, and most people are on auto pilot, sleep walking and oblivious to their God given power. Again, “We have forgotten who we are!”, is an understatement in our being-ness. People drift about and never consider how powerful they are and how much more empowered they could be.
One of the most empowering aspects we have at out disposal, if we would only give it a chance , is Love. Not sexual love although that is a part of it all, and important, but the quality of being relaxed and “In Love” with all that is about you. The breath you just took, the slippers that are keeping your feet warm in the morning, and the sleepy cat on the window sill. You get the idea. All of it. But most people never “Consciously” attempt and engage the wonderful emotion of Love, at all. If they only realized that we came from Love, and the most powerful force in the Universe is Love, then there would also be Peace, and Respect, and Kindness, and all the other positive feelings, attached and attracted to that Love.
What If, we used our Determination to exercise Love, on purpose? Excuse me, I want to repeat that last part of that question, “on purpose”. Deliberately, no excuses, and without fear or doubt or angst or any other negative emotion taken into any kind of consideration? Why would we NOT do that? Isn’t that what we all want? To feel good? And have everyone else around us feeling good, too? What would it take? How about……..Determination to do so.
And NOW (and all the Now’s to come) is always a good Choice.
