“The trouble is you think you have time.” It’s a quote that is shared by Buddha that I have found all over the internet. Many of us are discovering through our loved ones ascension; how precious time really is. One day they are here and the next day their physical presence is gone. We’re left with their material possessions to sort out and the fogginess of contemplating a world that you no longer will see them in. Some of us even begin to look at how our own existence has been use thus far. Recently listening to Dr. Joe Dispenza a scientist, teacher, lecturer, author, and thought provoker; I listened to him share that one of his Spiritual daily practices start with the question “What is the greatest ideal of myself that I can be today? Such an amazing question to ask. When we can rise and consider each day how to shift programmed thoughts into becoming our greatest self. To release having the same automatic reaction, the same conversation, and even thinking that we need to remain looking the same. How awesome to know that with focused thought, intention, and emotion we all have the power to shift our subconscious mind and change into the person we desire. You’re only stuck if you choose to be. You choose to be where you are, doing what you are doing from your thoughts and your choices. Reprogram the mind and choose to be a whole new greater version of you.
One day, I received a call from a loved one after viewing a slideshow that I prepared from pictures of my fathers' birthday party. She commented how the video had her in tears. Just one week from burying one of her best friends' who had suddenly past from a tragic auto accident. "I want to learn how to make my own slideshow for my someday celebration of life. I don’t plan on going tomorrow and if the good Lord is giving out time I’m going to ask for over 30 plus more years, but in the meantime I’m going to start putting the slideshow together because can’t nobody tell my life story better than me!” We laughed and talked about all the possible moments she/we’d create as a family in the meantime.
What will your life story be? Will you work to create so much goodness? Will you choose to be more here now? What will you do with the gift that you have? Remember enjoy the present, because it is truly a gift.
