Whatever You're Not Changing, You're Choosing.
Jul 21, 2019
By now, I will assume that you are a little more familiar with how the lower ego surfaces and operates within your own consciousness. And you have probably observed this in others as well. The thing with knowing and understanding how it operates in you is for you to make another choice. Always choose again, and again and again, until you get it. The observation in others is to learn what not to do.
Far too often, we think we don’t have choices in our habits, or choice of words, feelings/emotions, or just about anything in life. We believe that things happen to us and we do not get to choose.
While it is true that there are things that happen to us that are beyond our control, but the life lesson is not about whether things happen to us or not. We often abdicate responsibility the minute we believe that things are happening at us and to us. The life lessons more often than not are how we are responding to these things/incidents/experiences.
Remember this #stressmanagementtip : Stress is caused by how we are responding to life, not how life is treating us.
Let’s have this understanding that we can change our attitude, our perspective, our way of handling it. This is what empowers us. This is what makes us powerful as humans. And you know what, when someone does it, it gives permission to another to do the same! It is how we inspire each other to take more empowered actions.
So whatever we are not changing, we are choosing. Because not doing anything is making a choice too. It is a choice to be disempowered.
Can you spot how the lower ego comes into play here? The lower ego, of course, wants you to be disempowered, making you believe at every step of the way that you do not have a choice. That you cannot change your perspective, your attitude or how you do something. Don’t let the lower ego win the game of life.
Whatever you’re not changing, you’re choosing. Yup, read that again.
