They Say that You always have a Choice

But do you Make it Consciously?

Young woman wondering what to do
You always have a choice, they say. And they are right, you do have a choice, always! But that choice is not actually the one you think you have, there's a different one you make first!

Do you Wonder What To Do?

Some people look at their possible responses, asking themselves how to react in this particular situation; should they do this, or that, or the other? Do you ever ask yourself how wondering what to do will change your life?

Will it change your life? Probably not. That's because the crunch points in life are few and far between. There's a choice you make before deciding what to do, yet you mostly ignore this choice in an unseemly rush to decide anyway.

There are masters who say this is a life of illusion. And in some ways it is, since the decisions you think you make are part of the illusion. That's rather a bold statement, so I'll type real slow as I explain... :-)

You Do what You Think is Right

Most of the time, you do what seems to be right, so this determines the decisions you make. Which means your decisions are pre-determined by what you think is right. But what you think is right is controlled by the beliefs you've adopted so far, which are relatively unchangeable. This implies the way you think doesn't vary much, and so your decisions also don't vary that much.

Your decisions don't change because they're actually governed by your beliefs, whether or not
those beliefs cause you to self sabotage. Which means your decision points are not actually where you have a choice, they are indeed part of the illusion.

So do you have a
choice in life? And if so what is it? Yes, you do indeed - but it's neither what nor where you think it is!

Your Real Choice

You always have a choice, wisdom tells you that your real choice is simple, it's in choosing what to be! Each time, you first decide whether to be positive, or negative, before you make your decision of what to do. Your choice of what to be comes before you decide what to do.

Your self sabotage mechanism will try and hide this choice from you, but you always have this choice of what to be, and you make it first. Will you take the high road, or the low road?

A choice to be negative leads away from Peace, Love, Calm, and Joy long-term. You will know this inside, check your vibe. A negative choice will bring you less peace, and less joy. It cannot bring you more, because
the result of an idea is never separate from its source - which here is negative!

A choice to be positive will lead you towards Peace, Love, Calm, and Joy long-term. You will also know this inside, you have a feeling, a vibe about it. So the
secret of success in any circumstances is to choose to be positive. Don't choose what will give you less of what you want!

This seems so simple, but
simple does not mean easy. Have fun discovering more about how to overcome your self sabotage.

Food for Thought

"Our heart of hearts ... is, by definition, the one place where we cannot fool ourselves. It is the place where none of our justifications, none of our rationalizations penetrate ... the truth (is) there.
... the message sent by the heart of hearts is a pure, basic feeling
... look for and trust the first flash of feeling. Feelings may well
provide the truer counsel."

- Robert B. Cialdini, psychologist, author, Professor Emeritus of Psychology and Marketing
