good choice/bad choice/same choice?

.

It seems like we can get stuck a lot in life. Maybe even, like, always stuck? We do the right things, are a good person, contribute to society, all of the above, etc, etc; yet, life ‘befalls’ us.

We’re not paused in time; life happens to us. There is always forward movement independent of your own personal intention. Discernible or not, your being is always progressing. That “stuck” feeling, that’s part choice and part trying to keep up with the progression. We’re always evolving. It happens in the foreground, right in front of your face; it happens in the background, where it’s not as easily apparent – it’s always there, though. You’re not the same person you were ten years ago, a year ago or even this morning. The question is; are you still doing the same things?

Life is all of it; the losses, the victories, the confusion and the clarity. All of it. It’s how you integrate your ‘life’ into your life. We don’t change, we evolve. Life is a perpetual opportunity for our evolution. It’s the losses and the victories and the confusion and clarity where, dependent upon how we embrace the opportunities (or don’t embrace them), we move into the space our higher Self is already occupying. This is why, at any given moment, we are choosing the muck we’re in and we’re just having a hard time keeping up to where we know we should be.

It’s the way in which we face life. It’s how you choose to find the growth. I’m certainly not presenting a novel concept. I’m presenting something I can speak to because it’s happened, and continues to happen, to me. There have been peaks and valleys, intentional action and fortunate occurrence and moments where I’ve actually felt the shift happen and moments where it all was just there and I could only say, “where did that come from?” Dramatic as it sounds, I marvel at the path my life has taken. I can only believe that it’s done so because I’ve made the choice to embrace and accept my evolution. Or, even just to acknowledge that it’s happening and maybe I kinda got on board every now and then. Why and how can I say this? Because I feel bigger than I did before. Because I feel like I have more meaning, more to offer and more alignment of my Self. Sounds great, doesn’t it? It is! But, I promise you, it came with an f’ing boatload of challenge. It came with a tonne of smiles and beauty and Love, too. But, it came with a lot to deal with.

Your evolution will progress at the rate you choose, but progress it will. The rate at which you’re willing to feel the hurt, face the fear, break the pattern and open your Heart, is the rate at which you’ll feel more in alignment with your own presence. The thing is, the farther your evolution progresses without you, the worse you’ll feel doing the same things you’ve always done. The gap gets wider and wider until you start choosing life in a way that narrows the separation. We’re all here to close the gap. No one is exempt or has a free pass. You don’t “get out of” being your true Self. That just wouldn’t make sense. But, it’s not meant to be perfect, either. It’s not meant to be constant work or constant stress. It’s not meant to be done right every single time. Mistakes have to happen. The longer, tougher path will inevitably be taken from time to time. You will get stuck. It is the experience. But, you also have to choose to not be stuck. You have to choose to smile, to laugh, to screw up, to be scared, to feel vulnerable, to break down, to rebuild and to Love.

“Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you have to go, just remember how far you’ve come.”

Be Love.
