“There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.”
We live in a relative reality and all experience is reality. There are always two polarities at the basis of our experience and we are always at choice with regard to such. We can choose the negative polarity or the positive polarity… and our correspondent experience will be flavored by our choice.
As Einstein so aptly said… we can choose the positive and live in the consistent miracle of life… or we can choose the negative and live in the absence of life’s miracle. Bottom-line… the choice is always ours. The important question then is who are we choosing to be?
Such choice however is not about tomorrow or some future time that never comes. It is rather about the here and now. In this very moment… who are you choosing to be? Always remember… your life experience corresponds to your choice.
This week… let us cultivate more wakefulness of our choices. Life-positive or life-negative… in each moment… with or without miracles… who are we choosing to be and what is our resultant experience of life? Let us be as wakeful as it is possible for us to be in this regard.
