Welcome to our discussion on the art of choosing. We’ll begin with the fundamental truth about your thoughts and feelings, and then we’ll get into the practical aspects of understanding the Law Of Attraction, making better choices, and changing your life into the glorious adventure you came here to experience.
Here’s what we discussed last week about feelings. Feelings are your infallible and invaluable guide to your direction. Your feelings tell you whether you’re heading towards or away from what you want.
What are the things you want?
Some of them are things you think about. Some of them are things you’ve thought about in that so-called past of yours, but maybe not recently. Some you’ve never thought about, but are in line with, or extensions of, the things you’ve already decided about. Many are just a plain function of who you are – a fun-loving, freedom-loving, connection-loving creature at your core. When you’re heading in the direction of all of those, you feel good. When you’re heading away from them, you feel bad.
Your feelings are never dictated by circumstances. It may seem that way on occasions, but it is not so. Your thoughts are always creating Your World, and your feelings simply tell you whether you’re creating things you want or creating things you don’t want.
You can control your thoughts, or you can think by default.
Default thinking means either –
one thought just follows another (you’re on a “train of thought”), or
you’re reacting automatically to circumstances.
How much of your thinking is default?
What you think is always a choice you can make consciously. Therefore the direction you are heading can always be a conscious choice. Therefore how you feel can always be a conscious choice. The simplest advice we can ever give you to help you create what you want, is .. choose always the better feeling thought.
So can you see the logic of this. Nothing is more important than feeling good – not that urgent thing, not that necessary chore, not that unrewarding job. NOTHING! So do only what feels good. Let all your actions be inspired actions. Give up on your “have-to”s and struggle. Realize your power. Step into the YOU you came here to be, and everything else falls away.
So that’s the fundamental truth about your thoughts and feelings. Now let’s as promised, get into the practical aspects of using this understanding of the Law Of Attraction to change your life. And as we do this, we want you to understand that there’s nothing about being “practical” that changes any of the truth of what we have described. It’s just that as you wove that tapestry of expectations of yours, the screenplay of everything in your movie, you’ve probably built in a whole lot of those “must-do”s and “should-do”s with timelines to match, and it may take a bit of navigation to find your way around those blockages. But get around them we will. Here we go.
Can you cold-turkey just quit all your “must-do”s and “should-do”s? It depends. Everything depends on what you think, but what if there seem to be no good choices? Let‘s look at one possible scenario. You have a job. It’s not a job you enjoy, and you’d like to quit but it pays the bills. Going to work doesn’t feel good. Quitting doesn’t feel good. So what do you do when it seems like the only choice you have is between the lesser of two evils? Well firstly as we have often said, we do not advocate the jump-and-the-parachute-will-appear approach, so we’re not suggesting that you quit the job. Here’s what you do (and the process applies of course to any of your blockages).
What is there about your job that you like? There’s the money of course, but there will be other things. Some of the people you interact with perhaps are fun. Maybe the drive there is relaxing. Maybe the cafeteria food is good. Find the things that are good and start to appreciate them more and more. There’s your baseline. From that base, start to image some “what-if”s .. in the upward direction. What if the job changed to be more of this or that? Let yourself start to imagine life as you want it to be, and here’s what will result. Either the job will change, or you’ll change jobs. Whichever it is, it will fall easily into place. No stress, no leaping and no parachutes required.
There is no circumstance of your life that locks you into feeling bad. Feeling bad is a choice. There is always a way out, or more accurately there are always a million ways that are effortless and fun to get out of any hole you’ve dug for yourself. It’s not a matter of DOing things or trying to force things. If it doesn’t feel good, you’re going in the wrong direction. It’s a matter of consciously choosing that better feeling thought. It’s a matter of being smart about it, using this knowledge you’ve gained, and consciously choosing to create what you want.
The more you become aware of how you feel, moment by moment, day by day, and begin to approach this creation business deliberately and confidently, the more you will find new doorways appearing that you never know existed. They are there right in front of you but you cannot see them unless you start to feel good .. about you, about life, about everything.
How do you feel RIGHT NOW?
Your feelings always tell you in which direction you’re creating.
Your thoughts are always creating Your World.
You CAN always choose your thoughts.
Therefore you CAN always choose your feelings.
So make yourself a commitment to give up on the “Must-Do”s and the struggle and allow yourself to merge into the downstream current and be carried to where every action feels inspired. As you step into the powerful YOU you came here to be, resistance falls away.
We also encourage you to create a few DODOs – nothing to do with extinct birds and very much to do with .. Descriptions Of Desired Outcomes. We suggest having a minimum or five things you’d like to have, be or do – Descriptions Of Desired Outcomes. Get them in your mind in glorious detail. They can be physical things, or non-physical things. The important thing is that they be ideas you fall in love with, visions of things that carry you away from the status quo, things that set you apart from those lesser-of-two-evils types of choices. Have them as touchstones in your pocket and use them regularly. In a few minutes here we’re going to be asking you to share some potential DODO topics so start thinking of your desired outcomes.
Let’s conclude here with what we finished with last week. If you’ve dug a hole for yourself, stop digging. Set your intentions once more on feeling good. Feeling good is more than just a good idea. It defines the quality of every part of the life you’re living, and it will define the ease with which you transition at the end of it. The main tent has never been that physical stuff you manifest, nor even the non-physical stuff you’re making up. The main tent is you with your hands in the clay of All That Is creating your next masterpiece. It’s you stepping into the world of your DODOs.
And as always, we are here to dance with you.
