Yesterday was one of my best and worst day in a while. I connected with my local community in new ways and I attracted new beautiful experiences and knowing.
Then toward the evening, when I had taken the steps toward relaxation (drinking wine), something happened that caused fear and disappointment on my part. I knew I really was the one causing it but in a few seconds I forgot all about what I am talking about here and started blaming someone else.
After a few uncomfortable exchange of emails and some deep breathing, I was clear that my circumstance would not change unless I took responsibility for the emotion and asked what else was possible. Now I was willing to consider a new possibility.
This is why I love Access Consciousness. It teaches us tools and processes to remove the polarity, not to make something wrong right. Once something just is, it allows so many more possibilities.
I do not describe many tools of Access but today I really want to be grateful for the tool of saying “this is an interesting point of view” every time I hear a point of view in my head or someone gives me theirs. If I wake up feeling moody, I can say “it’s an interesting point of view”. If my boss feels that I did not respond to his email fast enough, I can say “it is an interesting point of view”. If the news say these are bad economic times, I can say “it is an interesting point of view”.
Just saying this feels like a window opening up in my brain. Tensions disappears and I can breathe better.
What if every though was an interesting point of view?
Every morning, I wake up asking myself who do I want to be today? Knowing that I have a choice, that I do make that choice (consciously or not) is a very refreshing thought. I get to start over if I want to. In this present moment, it does not matter what happened 10 seconds ago and I can only create now what will happen 10 seconds later
So when I hear about the European Debt crisis or the difficult economic recession, I wonder what if we all started over? Obviously, there are a lot of things that no longer work for many people in the economic and political structures that our ancestors put in place. So what if we forgot about all of it and decided right now what we want to create?
It is scary and exciting at the same time, isn’t it? What is the difference? It is the same energy. One you are looking at the situation through the lens of doom and lack of faith, and the other through the lens of possibility. What if both were true? Which one would YOU choose?
I am hearing some of your thoughts already and I know many think it is not possible to “start over”. Well, when Germany entered World War Two their economy was so bad that they had to carry a whole bag of coins to buy a loaf of bread. Today they are one of the richest nation in the Western Europe. So think again.
Also, regardless of your faith,when you think it is not possible to start over, consider who is thinking this. The part of you who went to school and reads papers or watches TV or the part of you who loves, hopes, dreams and knows?
We do get to start over, and so does the structured we put in place. How does it get any better than this?
