A life lived by choice is a life of conscious action. A life lived by chance is a life of unconscious reaction. – Neale Donald Walsch.
Very often we complain about not having a choice. We use words like ‘forced by circumstances’, ‘family pressure’, ‘constraints’ …etc. We need to check the truth of these words. Is it really the force of circumstances or is it our own inclination? Is it the family pressure or our lack of courage? Are the constraints real or our imaginings? Contemplate.
We always have a choice. There are more than two options, more than two paths. Our choices are also based on our core values. Sometimes we are confronted with a choice between our own different values. Nonetheless, we have a choice.
And instead of blaming anything outside of us, when we say that it is our choice we are empowered beyond measure. Because, now all the aspects which seemed like constraints suddenly start to favour us. Now, we have the power of intention. We no longer remain a puppet of circumstances. The events of the Universe are being synchronized to fulfill our intention. It is always so. When we make a choice we are consciously choosing action. When we decline to make a choice, we are simply reacting to our current reality.
Let this Monday be not just the beginning of the week but the beginning of a conscious empowered life. God supports us in our choices, without judgment.
