The Sun.

It’s very appearance first thing in the morning is an awesome event. Every day that it "horizes" from the East, I feel its warmth – not just physically - I feel it emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

I miss it when it is not there; however, its absence is an illusion evident whenever the clouds dissipate.

Ability and talent is like that.

That they are ‘unknown’ or not visible, presents to me the notion that I am not able or capable of performing them.

As awareness ( that is my Sun ) emerges from the cloud cover of my mind, I tend to believe that anything is indeed ... possible.

Take the piano for instance. It takes one finger on any key to play it and as I choose others and even combine a few, the tones, the vibrations, my choices, expand the ‘music’.

How it sounds – that is mere judgment.

The fact is that I am playing. The music is there. It requires only my fingers to enliven it.

Hidden talents?

Much like the sun, they remain there until the unknown becomes known.

And choice is the activation fee.

"Just remember, it's not a lie if you believe it."
(George Costanza in Seinfeld's, "The Beard")

Seinfeld. There were so many subtle nudges in that sitcom that ring so true in real life.

Where I am at this particular moment has been reached by all of the choices that I have made or not made in this life, based on my foundation of belief structures – what I BELEIVE to be the truth about myself and my existence around me.

Free choice and free will allow for change to take place – however, as I choose based on the same belief structures, I wind up right back here, where I started. (I know. I’ve done it and more than once).

Ah HA ! So that is what the ‘circle of life’ is – at least in my world.

Why does this happen to me?

Minimal Mind Change.

That is what I call it.

Choices filtered through my current beliefs lead to mere cyclical movement. Oh, my mind can convince me that I have in fact changed, moved forward - but the result of my choices proves otherwise and usually, very quickly.

Insanity was brilliantly defined by Albert Einstein as ‘doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.’

My hypothesis is that when I choose to change an actual belief structure that choice creates an opportunity to change.

This is my time – my time to discover my beliefs, sift through them and release ones that no longer benefit me. And to choose ones that do!

Care to join me?

Stay tuned : )
