Choice And Consciousness Is A Very Spiritual Partnership-isobuster

Spirituality Every day you are bombarded with stimuli. Every day your head is filled with thoughts. Every day you must make decisions about what thoughts to pursue and what thoughts to ignore. We live in a world of choice. Sometimes we are conditioned to think that we don’t have any choice in certain matters but we always do. We have choice in every thought and therefore every creation that shows up in our lives. The choices you make determines who you define yourself to be and who you are in relationship to the rest of your environment. You might even say you chose your environment. You chose it and you created it. Does it serve you? If not choose again. This is the wonderful thing about choice. Nobody says that once you make a choice you must stick with it forever. That’s not how it works. You are free to choose again at any time. You live in the present moment and therefore you make your choices in the present moment. The choice you made ten minutes or ten days or ten years ago does not affect the choice you make in the present moment. There is no law that says you must stay with your choice and experience the consequences of it. In fact the natural law governing this says quite the opposite. You are free to choose at all times. And you do. Many choices are automatic. You choose to breathe because it sustains your life. You do this automatically and unconsciously as a matter of choice. You prefer to think other thoughts than just I choose to breathe in, I choose to breathe out. You put breathing on autopilot. But it’s still a choice. If you choose to stop breathing you can create this in a variety of ways. You have to consciously think about it and then consciously create it, otherwise autopilot is fine. Autopilot is fine for most of the day-to-day bodily functions required for human existence. Human experience on the other hand is more of a consciousness thing. As humans we have taken many short cuts in utilizing our power of choice. We have developed the habit of making our choices unconsciously, just like our breathing. We have been told that it is okay for us to view a situation in our life, hark back to a similar situation, whether we experienced it ourselves or somebody told us about it, and react to the present situation with the same responses we have in our memory. We choose what we consider a socially acceptable reaction to common stimuli. We are told that to choose any other response would not be socially acceptable and we will be judged harshly for any deviation from the norm. Sounds like we are a bunch of robots. That doesn’t sound like freedom. That sounds like a condition. And conditions limit us and allow judgment. If we continue to choose the path of unconscious choice we will find ourselves restricted to only those choices that others tell us are acceptable. We begin to lose our identity of self and personal choice. We take on the identity of the group and accept the group choice as our own. We become unconscious of the freedom of choice that lies within us and accept the restriction of choice that lies external to us. We surrender our authentic power to the power of others and we do this by our own choice. Unconscious choice perhaps but our choice just the same. Would we give up our freedom of choice consciously? Probably not. If we were aware of the fact that our unconscious choices determine what shows up in our life, wouldn’t we choose to make conscious choices? Probably so. The key is the more aware we are of who we are and where we are going, the more consciously we can make choices to get us there.
