Choices

“You see, you’re giving others too much power as you even acknowledge how they make you feel. What you’ve got to decide is how I’m going to feel. We would go to a Virtual Reality and we would practice feeling good. Manifestations come on the heels of what you’ve conjured in thought”  — Abraham  [Excerpted from North Los Angeles, CA – Saturday, March 2nd, 2002]

We all have had the experience of actually allowing what another says to be fed into our choice as to our feeling happy or sad.  They might have said something or acted in a certain way, or whatever that then we internalized the energy that went along with it to now form the basis for how we feel. How we have chosen to feel.  It is understood that massive and large world events and its energy offers to us a very tempting opportunity to feel all the myriad of emotions that could be quoted, yet once internalized they have a life of their own and the path they lead us down isn’t pleasant.  It takes a choice to be a conscious (awaken, aware, alert) participant over what we allow to penetrate into our consciousness to then become a feeling. What then many do is to verbalize that feeling and that choice the makes it our very own.  Now it isn’t what another did, said or didn’t do or say…it is now our very own, and while we can take back control at any step, it is now more difficult.  Catch it early and eventually there will not be anything to catch.
