There is always a choice in how we look at things…
How do you look at your life? Do you see it as a life where s _ _ t happens, or do you see a life where SHIFT HAPPENS?
A shift is when you suddenly see or sense something differently than you have in the past…and frequently this happens accidentally. If this has ever happened to you, you know that looking at things differently causes different results. For example, crying and laughing can sound very similar—if you saw an event where people seemed to be crying, how you would act would be very different from how you would act if the people seemed to be laughing.
If you are not happy with what is going on in your life right now… consider practicing being more aware of your feelings, then your thoughts—then experiment with shifting your thoughts to something that feels better, or to a different aspect of the circumstance you are examining. When you find your mind being judgmental or critical, ask yourself if you can find something positive in the situation, circumstance or person. Practice looking for what you like, and when you find yourself thinking about what you don’t like… just observe that and let it go.
Some people believe that one cannot change… that we are “set” and that change is not possible. I don’t agree. I do believe that in order to change, however, I need to change the way I think, and that will change the way I act. When I choose a different way to think and act, I get different results than I got before.
My choice it to always think that SHIFT HAPPENS, and that I can make a shift. A Course In Miracles says that a miracle is a shift in perception. I like looking for miracles, and the better I get at looking for them, the more I find!
