To Shift from control to Love is a powerful choice yet, it is always an option available in every moment,every breath. In these quickly changing and unsettling times there is a light at the end of the tunnel. YOU are that light and only YOU can choose to flip the switch.
As many of us are facing chaos,destruction, and collapse in our lives and so many of the lives around us , it is very easy to get caught up in the fear and sense of loss of security. You do not need to search far or hard to find many reasons to justify fear, anger, disappointment, confusion, and lack of trust in people, places, and things.
I myself have lost my sources of income, home, cherished relationships, valued posessions, sense of identity, way of life and had my understanding of how the world works, shattered,all in a relatively short amount of time. I have also encountered many people in the same situation or similiar realities of life. If I wasn't soooo stubborn (good & bad) I probably would have given up, lost hope, stopped trying( or really should have!) long ago. I think my name should have been Murphy as in, the curse of Murphy's Law- what can go wrong will and more! On more than one occasion I chose to be overwhelmed in grief and anger and disillusionment and act immaturely in resistance and refusal to accept what I was facing - or not facing- heehee. I won't bore you with all the stories(as that IS really ALL they are!) just trust there are many!
What I'm getting at is life curve balls are many at the plate and although I might not appreciate it, it is for a reason. When I choose to let go of everything but that belief and hold firm in my commitment to value this gift of life even when it seems the cherries are sour or there appears to only be pits, it carries me through to my bright spot.
It forces me to honor and recognize the beauty INSIDE myself that exists in everyone and everything even if it is a little dusty in the moment. Understanding and rewards are not always acknowledged or seen when the learning and expanding are going on, however, they are ALWAYS there around the corner when we make the turn. Time and time again I have been shown THIS to be fact and given the chance to believe it. It is very tempting to get wrapped up in the experience offered and forget I am NOT the event, the event is NOT in control, the event is NOT good or bad, just an event- an opportunity to experience myself in this world, a gift to be appreciated.
When I choose to let go of my need to control, direct how things SHOULD be or focus on get, protect and results for MY life but instead ALLOW the LOVE that IS ME to navigate the expansion and growth available in ease and grace and Gratitude I am able to REALLY have Power and security. To stand in all events fully aware and participating regardless of the outcome embracing the FULL participation rather than approaching from fear and holding back or protecting to avoid "something" resisting life events in POWERLESSNESS and victimization of things happening TO me rather than Through Me surrendering my CHOICE to fully take responsibility and be Powerfull. This is the PROCESS of life that I signed up for: to find the sacred value in ALL things in life. Stand in the soup of fear and all the REASONS why not, yet STILL CHOOSE LOVE is POWER! It may not turn out like I think, or want but that doesn't stop the ride and all the twists and turns and all the JOY from excercising the POWER OF CHOICE and say YES, I WILL FLIP MY SWITCH, enjoy the ride, not sit on the side or hide........
It IS ALL ABOUT LOVE and remembering NO MATTER WHAT your inner light(love) is indestructable,unchangeable, unlike any of the forever cycling appearances about you. LOVE IS THE INNER LIGHT OF POWER AND SECURITY, ALWAYS THERE and AVAILABLE. The paradox is when you relax inside to this KNOWING LOVE, it can't help but permeate all else around you.
WHO YOU ARE IS ALWAYS LOVE, HOW you CHOOSE to play with it is always the POWER OF CHOICE.
Allow it to flow freely, or try and control it?
Breath easy KNOWING it is ALWAYS there waiting your choice. In every event, FLIP THE SWITCH, it is the POWER OF CHOICE.
