Each day, you wake up to the new day and you have a choice! You choose on what and where you will invest your time, energy, and your focus. You can go with the familiar, often repeated, anxieties and fears, because you have done these so many times they seem “comfortable.” Or, You can invest in being in the “present moment” and to connect with your “Guidance” to lead you to perhaps unfamiliar places where progress toward enhancing your human consciousness may dwell. Not an easy choice to choose the Present and the unknown… Yes, you can go small or you can shoot for the much larger, expansive, direction for your day.
Some people awake early in the day to check in on the “News” being spewed by the media. This may include topics like the “weather,” world conflicts, the financial markets, perhaps the sports scores, or even, more close to home, the family’s drama. Wow, in the “Big Picture” of spiritual consciousness, these “distractions” seem important at the time but hold little lasting value. Will fluctuations in the stock market really offer you important and lasting happiness or Joy? You may answer “Yes” or you may consider your spiritual growth at a different level of longer term importance.
Your investments of your focus, your time, and your energy can be a challenge. No matter what you choose to focus upon, you would do best to accept these choices and learn what you can from the direction you choose. Stepping unconsciously down your path is a way to operate but not necessarily the most significant for your long term levels of Joy. Sure, you tell yourself that these mundane activities and dramas are “important” but being caught up in this trap is one of the most crucial lessons in your human life to learn from. Are you connected to the highest levels of the Divine or are you choosing to wallow in the human dramas which play out as a testing challenge for your improving higher consciousness? (The answer to this question is simply, Yes.) Perhaps, early in your day, you can take a few deep slow breaths and choose to focus upon Gratitude, Service, Acceptance, and the offering of Unconditional Love to the people you bump into. (You are challenged to considered what it is to Live Namaste.)
You are given “free will” to follow the investments on your path through life. You can not make a mistake! All investments of your time and energy provide you with the opportunity to learn or to test your learning in this life…
And, if you are open to Guidance, you will find the best path for your day and your life to follow. You are Loved! You are an important piece of the Divine Spirit! You are a Miracle!
