Can you imagine what life would be like without the power of choice? Humans are one of the few earthlings fortunate enough to have the power to dictate the course of their lives. Executing this power wisely and carefully is our responsibility.
We are free to choose from a palette of thoughts, some colorful and striking, some more subtle. Some are darker. Some are light. Some barely visible. We choose how to balance our color story. The thoughts we act upon, much like the stroke of the brush, color the canvas of our lives.
Understanding that we are in control of what we feel is very powerful, but in some cases, can be difficult. The fact that we alone are in control of the course of our lives can be intimidating. It’s a big responsibility. We often look for a way out of this “work”. We remain afraid rather than facing our fears. We turn away from the truth instead of realizing that our own reality is false. We hold anger instead of allowing forgiveness.
In many cases, letting go is harder than holding on. Even to love, this can be harder than feeling hate. (Try loving the person that takes your parking space – see what I mean.) It is our nature to find the path of least resistance, and this is where we become complacent and we settle.
We see life through the lens we wear. Our thoughts, our perception is controlled by our history, our experiences, right? NOPE IT’S NOT. We don’t have to hold on. We can let go. We can dip our brush in a new color, shit, we can even MIX COLORS. We can choose brush size. We can use our fingers, toes, whatever! Our capabilities are endless. We are the only ones that are putting up walls around our spirits, which innately yearn for freedom.
Having said this, things that suck need to be taken off our palette. Whether it is a person, a job or a habit we have… whatever…if we don’t want to put it on our canvas, then its a waste of valuable space.
I hope that this inspires you to relent that which is holding you back so that you can become an even more incredible, powerful, lovely and beautiful soul. Every moment of this life is meant to be lived, to be cherished. May we all move away from that which sucks and embrace that which opens our hearts and frees our spirits.
Shine on wonderful people.
