Change your thoughts, change your life
The most important lesson one needs to learn is we all have free will in everything we do. It has more to do than choosing to have a hot fudge sundae instead of a banana split. The rules of free will are unchanging and apply to every phase of our life. The scope and effect the decision can have on our life doesn’t matter, it is a universal law.Big or small, the end result is the same.
Many assume our life is determined before birth and we cannot change the hard times we encounter. Many think they are under the control of others and there is nothing they can do about it. Even though we do have events in our life that come along where we theoretically have no control over, on some level of consciousness, we volunteer for everything that comes our way.
We think we have no control over these events,nothing can be farther from the truth. Those thoughts are nothing but a cop out, an easy way out. The mess we’ve gotten ourselves into isn’t as important as how we solve the issues and the lessons we learn in the process of getting out of it. Everything happens for a reason , we just need to learn from the experience and go on with life.
At times we are in situations where we are trapped in a place we don’t want to be, and sometimes there is karma to fulfill. These times don’t last forever ,and are only teaching moments to help us realize we don’t have to be trapped forever by karma or our past actions.
Whatever our life circumstance, on some level of consciousness, we agreed to travel the path we are on. It’s all about the lessons learned and evolving past those so called negative experiences.
Often times the moments in time are only reminders that for every action there is a reaction and a consequence.Once the lesson is learned or relearned, karma is released and we are free to go on our way.
We chose our life’s journey before birth, there is always a general outline we , along with the souls we are going to journey through life together, determine. But it is only an outline, we can accomplish more or less than our destiny. However, I feel if we don’t accomplish our life goal we will be extremely dissatisfied and will not be happy.
Many times this leads to discontent, addiction, and abuse. When we are on our way to accomplishing our life mission, or more, we will be extremely content and happy.
The time we spend on Schoolhouse Earth is a gigantic opportunity afforded to us, an opportunity to advance spiritually as well as emotionally and physically. Even though we may feel we are stuck and not doing anything productive, no time is ever wasted.
Many times, when we feel stuck or bored, we are just in a holding pattern and patiently waiting for our next life journey to begin. The closer that new journey is to fruition , the more anxious and frustrated we may become. It is at this point in time we need to remember we are entering a new phase of life, to be patient and know that soon we will once again be on our path to further enlightenment.
It is at this time we need to remind ourselves of what we actually want in life, especially where relationships and careers are concerned. We need to focus on the final outcome and remember to not become distracted because of a seemingly easier or more convenient path. All the while remembering the universe may have a better path in mind for us than we could ever imagine.
It is at this time we need to remember we do have free will and we can change our destiny at anytime if we feel deep down there is a better option being presented to us than we had imagined.
Nothing is written in stone, it may be we have advanced spiritually more than we previously imagined and we can skip a previously envisioned experience and move on to a more enlightened adventure.
In creating our destiny and exercising our free will, we need to be reminded that every thought we have creates our future, every random thought. It’s like we are praying constantly. Thoughts create words and words create actions and actions create reality.
We need to be constantly aware of our thoughts and if we find ourselves slipping into negative thinking, this is the time to pause and retrain our mind to think in a more positive way. We have free will and can change our thoughts instantly, change your thoughts and change your life.

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, When looking back in history, I soon discovered this has always been a problem, Benjamin Franklin once said, ”Of all the senses, common sense seems to be the one that is used the least.” As obvious as it may seem, many seem to be totally oblivious to it. Most, if not all of the problems the world faces today could be solved if people would just sit back and think about what would seem to be the most obvious and simple solution to any issue. Often times people tend to over complicate the issues. I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice. It is now evident they were a lot smarter than we gave them credit for. Many times, in today’s world, the schools and universities can no longer be counted on to teach truth and values that will guide someone through life.
