A single lifetime on earth, in the broad scheme of things, is a very short period. It can feel that much shorter depending on when and if we actually wake up and start paying attention to life, rather than just drifting along ignoring the moment. Once we begin to focus on the moment, life’s experience becomes more relevant and has much more meaning and purpose.

When asleep, we flit from day to day with little recognition of what is happening. We fail to understand that that emptiness within can only be filled with awareness and presence. We point the finger at others and fail to realize that we build our moments, and our tomorrows from our expectations and focus .

When we awaken, we know and understand that we build our tomorrows by our thought processes and will only experience limitations in life if these are part of our expectations. Our concentrated thoughts refocus our pathway.

Many individuals believe that the many lessons we are meant to learn throughout this life have already been determined. Whether it is predetermined or changes as we change our direction throughout life is irrelevant. No matter what is true, we have choices on how we react to each and every event we experience. We have a choice on how we respond to that individual that held the door for us, to that driver that cuts us off, to the stoppage of traffic on the highway, to our house being broken into, to the loss of our spouse, and the list goes on. These do not have to be only negative experiences. The same holds true for what we term “beneficiary” experiences as well. (Is there a non-beneficiary experience?)

Could we have stopped the accident on the highway or the death of our loved one?.....undoubtedly not. Do we have a part in the process of how we appreciate and enjoy our life?......without a doubt!

If we believe or consider the possibility that we are constantly building our tomorrows by what we do today and by our expectations, then is it possible that as we mold our journey it will flex as we build?

Even though we are positive, we will still experience hard lessons in life. These are part of our journey. Our reaction to the lessons is what is important.

Is it not possible for us to go through these life experiences (lessons) and our part in the process is to learn from them and then carry on? Perhaps this is part of destiny’s gateway! Are we to learn not to take everything so personally?

Should we be “owning” everything that happens. We were taught the law of gravity in school. Are we suppose to think that we own this theory or learn from it and move forward?

We are meant to experience but not own. These are not personal. They do not define us – they teach us.

We and only we make the decisions. We choose what we wish to believe and what response we will have throughout our journey. It is always in our hands even when we do not believe it is.

Perhaps all we need to do is watch life flow, be the spectator of all of the events, learn from them and move forward without stress, fearless and free. You will need to decide and then watch what builds from that decision.
