choices

Where we place our attention decides more about our life than any other choice.

 


It happens every moment we are awake.

 


Choosing any of the 60,000 thoughts that cross our consciousness daily, distracts us, then robs us of opportunity.

 


Choosing to let those thoughts pass on through, opens life up, expanding beyond worry, doubt, anxiety and fear.

 


Now, these choices happen almost automatically.

 


Thoughts arrive, we somehow feel obligated to handle them or think they have relevance, power.

 

It took me focusing on my breath, practicing letting go over and over and over, before I could stay present when thoughts arrived.

 

The goal is to be able to stay present when our fight or flight mechanism jolts us with intense fear.

 

This is why we Meditate using the breath as our focus object.
