Proactive

Monday, September 17th, 2012

It is easy to experience life as happening to us.  We don’t have to take responsibility for things that don’t go the way we want, and we can spend our days venting over everything that goes wrong.  We get to play the martyr along with the victim.  For many people, this feels ‘right’.  We don’t realize the role we actually play in co-creating our lives, through intentions, perceptions, and actions.  Not actively participating in gaining what we desire in our lives, or shifting the things we don’t like, is a choice of passivity.

While I do believe in allowing things to unfold in a Divine way that is beyond our conception, I feel strongly that we must set things up before letting go.  It’s critical to have clarity on what you desire, have a defined vision.  Figure out what you have to do to allow that vision to come to life.  Start to do those things.  Then see how it all happens.  While things rarely transpire exactly as we think we want them to, they often unfold perfectly for us.

Contentment with determination, that’s a winning combination.
