Many of us are experiencing life according to our current understanding of it. This may be ease, love, gratitude, struggle, confusion or pain. The state in which we find ourselves correlates with the experience and the choices we are currently making.
Our constant thoughts currently dictate how we feel and influence our decisions and response to our current experience. But, what if I tell you that the longer you chose to focus in your negative emotions, the longer your experience will remain? Would you allow your confusion and your pain respond to this knowing? Or, would you allow your desired feeling dictate how you chose to deal with your current experience?
You see, you have a choice. You get to decide the type of experience, life you get to live. In order for this to happen, you must be willing to accept responsibility for your happiness. Focusing on others and the external to influence your happiness, sets you up for disappointment and other painful emotions; because no one knows, uunderstands, feels you better than yourself.
Depending and relying on others to modify their existence, life to meet your expectations and desires, it is not only selfish, but most importantly, it is unrealistic. You are essentially asking everyone in your life to stop living to focus on you. Do you really want to be responsible for everyone’s life?
The only control you have, is over yourself. You control your experience by intentionally and mindfully aligning your thoughts, feelings and behavior according to the life and experience you desire to have. It is your responsibility to decide every minute of your exitance, how you want to feel. Make it your intention to focus on your desired feeling, and push away everything and everyone that it’s not aligned with your desired intention. Deciding how you want to experience life starting today, will allow you to focus your attention and intention to all that supports your ease, love and happiness.
