Are you choosing LIFE?
Or are you choosing Death?
And how does one proceed on choosing Life or Death? Simple. With our Thoughts.
With every thought comes with it, an outcome. You may not see it right away, but it is “What you think so you are”. Especially now with so much manifesting faster then ever before, it is a must to BE AWARE of our thoughts. It took me many years to sift through the chatter that was in my brain, and to my shock, I realized how many of those thoughts were “stinkin’ thinkin’.” Me who “prided” herself on BEing spiritual, of living on the Higher Way, finding oodles and oodles of thoughts that were contributing to my reality.
Years worth of discipline have taught me to check my thoughts all the time. At first I truly thought I was going to loose my “mind” for to keep track of thoughts is like chasing goldfish in a pond with your bare hands. You just barely grasp one, and out like a flash it disappears. As I insisted on “mastering” my thoughts, over time, it yes, became easier. I am not saying that I still get days that I am “tempted” to think stink, and yes there are days that I just give in to it, rather then getting “tough” and “changing the channel”.
Yet, more times then naught, I do change the channel and again start that Flow of Positive Thoughts. I’ve done it as I insisted I would walk and have no further surgeries on my back. I’ve done it on the days I get out of bed, so tired that I question if I even slept. That is a hard manual switch over, where I find myself clinging to the kitchen sink, silently instilling in myself, Mantras of Life. And then going from there, FEELING those Mantras of Life swirl within me, bringing LIFE to a body that previously felt exhaustion. And this does happen.
Every day, it is a CHOICE. Do I desire Life or do I desire Death?
I choose thoughts based on Love. Even when their is dirt and grime all around me, I still choose to focus on Love. Here is Meaghan (below) who is Blissing on Mommy’s sneakers, getting all those good smells from the outdoors, while all around her is a dirty towel that is waiting for Mommy to clean, and a dirty floor waiting for Mommy to clean. By the look on her face, does it look like she is thinking thoughts of Love or thoughts of Death? Does it look to you if she has ONE thought in her head regarding the dirty towel that she herself is laying upon? Does it?
Even in times of BEing in positions or situations that are uncomfortable it is still possible to choose Life. Here is Max, with his tummy exposed, which is very vulnerable for a cat in the first place, relaxed, trusting, and allowing me to pick burrs out of his fur. Is he choosing Life or Death?
I end with a true life story. I know of one who for years obsessed about having bowel movements. This one would talk about it to me and to others, wanting to know if others are having “normal” bowel movements. This one consistently “worried” that the bowel movements seen were not good enough, or God forbid, were not existent for one day, this one would state there is something wrong and just knew that there was an illness. This went on for years. And every time this subject would come up, I would inwardly groan, and say “OH, you do not know what you do!”
This present day, this one now has an Inguinal Hernia which if you do not know, is an out pouching of a part of the lower intestines. Due to a choice of thinkin’ stinkin’, stating words of “death”, and refusing to exercise to keep the body strong, this one, now has in reality, an inguinal hernia, that needs repair. In other words, surgery.
Yes, there are circumstances in Life that just don’t seem to want to disappear, no matter what one does. These I call the “learning curves obstacles”. I am not talking about those here. I am stating to you that thoughts do manifest, in one way or another, and now that we are in a “quickening process” between that of thought and that of manifestation, I urge you to really take check of what your thoughts are and have been, for I do know, that those are the very thoughts that are creating your life.
So, do you choose Life, or do you choose Death? I choose LIFE all the way! And no matter how many of the “learning curves obstacles” I come up against, I shall allow my River of Life Waters to flow gently around those rocks.
I CHOOSE LIFE!
