Hello Choice

Hello Choice,

I will not hold you long. I will get straight to the point. You are very ambiguous and people have different perspectives regarding you. Some think you provide a sense of freedom. They are very happy to have you in their lives. Others, you leave overwhelmed, depressed, and suicidal.  I would like to know more about you.

You are always on the scene. It does not matter if I am aware or unaware of your presence; you are constantly shaping my life. Whether I have the right knowledge to make the best of you or not, you are always knocking waiting for an answer.

Sometimes, I feel sad because of you, especially, when I decide to follow my heart and the outcome does not work in my favor. I have to dust myself off, get back up, and try again. Then, people have the audacity to say, you should have made a better choice. Really?

Doing nothing and remaining in bondage is not a choice for me. Other people are irrelevant when making decisions. What some people think are choices are not choices in my book. Sometimes, I have to take crap a little bit longer, to get where I am going. I cannot just quit.  When my back is against the wall, something turns on inside of me and drives me right out of whatever it is making me feel uncomfortable. I do not have to make a choice. It is a natural instinct.

Now, when I make a choice and it works in my favor, I am all smiles and leaping with joy. It builds my confidence. However, I never know which choice is going to do what. There are so many to make. Some are relevant to my life; some are for the lives of others.

When I decided to come to Earth, I was a free spirit ready to fly with the birds and bloom like spring flowers. When I arrived, my memory erased. I ran into a wall of limitations. I am not sure if I chose my parents or if I chose to learn whatever it is, I am to learn here on Earth. My purpose is always a question.  Did I make a challenge to survive the struggle? What was I thinking?

The media these days posts so much negativity.  If I do not have a strong will, they will influence my thoughts, which influences my choices. Did I choose my environment as a kid? Everybody knows you are a product of your environment. If so, why would I do such a thing? Why would I cause myself so much pain?  These choices determine the future. I pray my life is predestined because some choices I have no control over. They are things I inherited. I want the best for my life.

They say if you make ‘right’ choices, it will assure you a pleasurable life. I am not sure about all of that. So many distractions influence choices. There are many variables to factor in. Actually, you can learn from all choices. One thing I affirm in my daily practice is Divine right action and Divine right guidance is here and present in my life. I have learned to let go and flow with life. Choices can be tricky. I am learning to trust the Divine, which is always present. I sit and am influenced by the stillness.
