Often we fool ourselves into believing that our choice is not so great as it really is. We’re at our job because, well, it’s what pays the bills. We go along with choices our partner, friends, or family make. We do what we’ve always done, because we’ve always done it.
But it’s astonishing how much choice we really have.
I remember when Elinara and I were thinking about moving back to Pennsylvania, I was struck by the weight of the decision ahead of me. It felt like a real fork in the road. If we chose to stay in New York, life would go one direction, much like it had been going for the five years we had been living there. If, instead, we chose to move to Pennsylvania, life would likely take a different direction, with new opportunities, and possibly new risks.
I ultimately chose to move back. And it’s opened up tons of opportunities, and also challenges.
We love the house we live in now. We have more access to awesome restaurants around this area as well. And, of course, we’ve also found the local O.T.O. group that we’ve been getting more involved with, which has caused massive spiritual changes.
On the other hand, we can’t just walk anywhere like we could in Olean. I think Elinara feels a little more isolated. We also took a cut to our household income, since she had to give up her job. Plus, rent is more expensive.
So not all positive, but overall, we wouldn’t have made any other decision. It turned out wonderfully for us.
Now I’m faced with another decision: whether to allow my mother to move into our basement, to take off some stress from her as she can barely afford to live on her own. Again, it feels like a fork in the road. Again, there will likely be new opportunities and challenges if she moves in.
We’ll probably save some money. She’s also a good cook, which would take some of the responsibility for cooking away from us. And, it just feels like the right thing to do.
On the other hand, her personality can be overbearing. She and Elinara often clash, which may be worsened by her living right here.
At this moment I don’t know what the right decision is. I’ll let go and see if my True Will reveals itself, and probably do some readings on the matter as well.
But the point is this: we are inundated with choices left and right. And they aren’t all life changing choices as the above examples are. Yet, cumulatively, they do change our lives, one little choice at a time.
You are a creator of your life, not only by what you choose to manifest, but also by the choices that you make on a day-to-day basis. One individual choice might not always be that important, but collectively, they create the life you have chosen to live.
But it is always a choice. Where you are right now, the circumstances you choose to tolerate, are all chosen by you on a daily basis. No one forced you to be where you are. You have gotten here by your own volition, whether you realize it or not.
And, if you are unhappy with life as it currently is, you also have the freedom to choose something else. It may not happen by one single choice, but by making a series of different choices, life will change. The choice to look for another job, to seek that promotion, to focus more on that hobby, to start that business— will all add up to a different life.
And in that new life, there will be new opportunities, but also new challenges. And so you’ll make new choices which will lead you even closer to what you want.
But here’s the thing: there is no innocence. You cannot wash your hands of this grave responsibility. By remaining where you are now, by making the choices you have always made, you give it your tacit approval. You tell the Universe, “This is OK.”
You are ever and always a creator. The only question is, what will you create?
