We just had our first winter storm of the season here in Hawaii. I love watching mother nature. Yesterday we had very heavy rains and thunderstorms while just a few miles away, on the top of Mauna Kea it was snowing. It was quite a storm, but today the sun was shinning and the air smelled so fresh and clean. On Oahu, at the other end of the island chain they are still having serve weather.
It reminds me so much of life. I watch some of my students struggle and so tenaciously hold onto their limitations. On numerous occasions in the past I would hurt myself in a convoluted attempt to be happy. Thank goodness I have realized it is so much easier to ask myself, in the moment, what I want to create before I act. At least most of the time!
As I write this I am sitting in a tank top and shorts. If I drove for half an hour I would be surrounded by drifting snow. When I am surrounded by my fears the best I can create is more fear. When I am reacting to life based on those fears and not consciously choosing how to act I seldom if ever get the results I really want.
The quality of life really is dependent on how I make my choices and what questions I ask myself. I am either listening to my habitual inner dialog or consciously directing my thoughts.
What do you do most often? Love or fear, habitual or conscious, a life of my dreams or more of the same old same old. It is all up top me, thought by thought and action by action.
What do you want to create in your life today? And are you willing to begin consiously directing your thoughts?
With love and aloha,
Want to live the life of YOUR dreams?
