Who Is Leading You?

I follow the path of doing Good for myself and others.
I listen to the guide that lives in me and knows only the best I can be.
I trust Spirit within to inspire and guide my life.
I give my full attention to the Good I am and the Good I share.

Who do you follow?
What do you admire?
Who is showing you the way?
What do you give your time, money and attention to?

Are you letting your body lead you?
Do you let your body tell you what to do and where to go?
Is your body teaching you to worry and be afraid?
Is your body guiding your to eat well and be happy?

Are experts telling you what to do?
Do you read the self help and healing books?
Are you eating what others sell as good for you?
Do you think they are right about what is true for you?

Is the world of money leading you?
Do you follow those who make money or lose money?
Do you listen to practical advice or “Dare to dream big.”
Are you hoping to get rich quickly or easily?

Do you follow the movie stars or sports stars or famous people?
Do you admire those who are beautiful, thin, wealthy or powerful?
Are you spending energy on the ones who get in trouble or do good?
Are you fascinated with how people think and act and what they say?

What we perceive in others, we strengthen in ourselves.
What we feed with our attention grows.
Whom we admire, sets the tone of our life choices.
The stuff we believe (ingest), becomes who we are.

Making wise choices for ourselves must include choosing our leaders wisely.
Making wise choices in our best interest must include knowing what we want.
Making the best choices for our good, requites knowing what is good for us.
Making someone our role model needs for us to know who they are and what we want to be.

Much attention seems to be given those who are making public mistakes.
Media shows us the best and the worst, but rarely the inside story.
Those who make money, gain power and fame are rarely the best examples of humanity.
Consider who, other than those in the media, might be the best example for your life.

Ancestors, someone in history, those who serve others, heroes, volunteers, all are good to admire.
Jesus, Buddha, Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King, Lincoln, or You?
Look for those who have the qualities you want to nurture in yourself.
Look to those who lives exemplify what you would admire in yourself.

Our work is to choose to be the best we can be.
Our healing is to forgive our mistaken choices.
Our service is to respect those who are follow us.
Our fulfillment comes from appreciating ourselves.

Remember:  We are all leading, teaching and healing others with our thoughts, words and deeds.
Let us choose wisely.
