What Do You Ask of Life?

What questions are present in your mind right now?  Take a moment and listen.  Are these the questions that often show up as you go through your day?

The questions you are asking yourself create your focus.  If you ask yourself, “What if I fail at this?” you will imagine scenarios of failure.  When you ask yourself, “How can I most enjoy doing this?” or “How can my work most benefit my community?” your focus will be on enjoyment or benefit.

Notice the questions you are asking yourself.  If you don’t like where they bring your focus, change them!  You’re the one living with your inner mindset, and you’re the one who can change it.

The questions you ask yourself are the questions you ask of life.  Listen to your questions and consider what you would most like to ask.  You will discover increased understanding of yourself and your life path.

From Overwhelm to Freedom

A few weeks ago, I posted about the journey from task-oholism (addiction to being busy) to heart-centeredness.  Here’s a followup, offering the busy-minded a weekly practice to turn “have-to”s into free choice.

Every Moment Is a Blank Page.

When you live every moment as a blank page, your life is imbued with a quiet power – the freedom to be exactly who you want to be, and to continually recreate yourself as “even better” than the best you’ve already been.

When every moment is a blank page, you have the freedom to make of each moment what you will your experience to be.

Habitually, we’ve chosen each new moment by looking at the past.  We’ve chosen by looking at what we already know.  This is why we often repeat the same patterns.  This is not a fallacy; this is wise.  We know we can count on what we know.

If you feel limited, turn to a blank page. In every moment, you can choose to take with you what works for you, and let go of what doesn’t.  “Letting go” may be a physical letting go, or it may be as simple as releasing a certain way of thinking about your situation.

If you feel stuck, stop for a moment.  Take a breath.  Turn to a blank page in your mind.  Ask yourself, “If on this page I found the best me I could be, the me I would most like to be, the highest expression of myself, what would that me look like?” Listen to your heart; feel for your highest truth.  Let yourself be who you find on that page. If you grant yourself that freedom, you are always free to live up to your highest potential.
