Getting to the Heart of the Matter

The thoughts and beliefs with which we identify hold the smaller self captive.
Ann Mortifee, In Love With the Mystery

If you want a great life, make one for yourself.  No one else can possibly do it for you yet many of us wait around for our good to show up from outside of ourselves.  Many of us even think that if we just believe in God enough, God will do it for us.  We hold ourselves not responsible for anything.  We wait for life to happen to us rather than deciding that we happen to life.  We want someone else to do it for us. 

Well, truthfully, it is not easy to take complete responsibility for our own happiness.  It’s much much easier to make it someone else’s responsibility or someone else’s fault if things are not going right.

The truth is this, and it’s been said many times by many people, you and you alone are the creator of your life and of your peace and happiness.  You are the one who decides whether today will be a good day or a bad day.  You are the one who decides how long you are going to suffer over a disappointment or loss in life.  Ultimately, you are the one who decides everything.  You are the one with all the power in your life unless you’ve decided to give it to someone else.

The great news is this…you are powerful beyond measure!  You have been imbued with the power to create heaven right here on earth if you want to experience it.  It is a matter of taking dominion over your entire life and taking dominion over your monkey mind which rattles off a thousand thoughts a minute—very few of which matter in the big scheme of things. 

You and you alone are the master of your fate.  It is up to you.  All of us have good news and bad news in life.  Which are you allowing to run your life?  If you are stuck, start asking yourself what the payoff is to being stuck in an untenable situation?  What are you getting out of it?  How is it serving you to escape responsibility for making the changes in your life you need to make?

Your life and your happiness are in your own hands.  God has placed within you everything you need to live a happy and prosperous existence.  You have the power, the resilience, the brilliance and the insight.  Decide today to take dominion over your life.  God supports you and loves you in ways you can’t begin to imagine!

I am master of my own fate and I choose love!
