What Are You Waiting For?

I choose to live in love as Love for the purpose of Loving.
Loving is freeing and trusting my Self.
Love is letting go of fear and being clear.
Love is the answer whatever the question.

Are you waiting?
Are you hesitating?
Are you procrastinating?
Are you contemplating?

When is it time to trust?
When will you be ready?
When can you simply say ‘Yes’?
When are you going to be willing?

When we trust in Love, it is easy to Love.
When we doubt our knowingness, it is difficult.
When we know what we want, we can easily go ahead.
When we don’t know our own destination, we will wait for ever it to come to us.

Life is an adventure.
We must take a risk to live.
We can choose anything or nothing.
We may be overwhelmed by the options.

It takes very little to sit and wait.
It takes a risk to leave the comfort of home.
It takes almost nothing to wait to see what will happen.
It takes great courage to grow up to be the person you really are.

We can scare ourselves into lethargy or inspire ourselves into ecstasy.
We have the choice to wait or get up and go.
We can regret and complain and research forever.
But actually living our lives alive, alert and enthusiastic is a choice.

Maybe today is your day, but maybe no day is right.
Right now is the time, but maybe there is no time to be right.
“Within” is your guide but maybe you want  “out there” to decide.
Take one little step and then you can see what it feels like to go find out.

Life can be a journey which takes you where you need to go.
Life can be a place you reach which shows how far you have come.
Life can be an investment of time, energy and money meaning nothing.
Life can be roller coaster ride which lifts you up and brings you down.

What will you life be when all is said and done?
A fun ride, a hopeless failure, a happy ending or a new beginning?
Wait too long and we get weak and tired, afraid and self limiting?
Everyday we choose or lose the opportunity to choose.

Loving our unlimited and never-ending choices.

The 12 Principles of Attitudinal Healing
By Jerry Jampolsky, MD and ACIM

1.       The essence of our being is love.

2.       Health is inner peace, healing is letting go of fear.

3.       Giving and receiving are the same.

4.       We can let go of the past and of the future.

5.       Now is the only time there is, and each instant is for giving.

6.       We can learn to love ourselves and others by forgiving rather than by judging.

7.       We can become love finders rather than fault finders.

8.       We can choose and direct ourselves to be peaceful inside, regardless of what is happening outside.

9.       We are students and teachers to each other.

10.    We can focus on the whole of life, rather than the fragments.

11.    Since love is eternal, change need not be viewed as fearful.

12.    We can always perceive others as either extending love or giving a call for help.

Attitudinal Healing affirms that we are responsible for our thoughts and whatever feelings we experience.
Attitudinal Healing encourages us to re-examine our relationships, bringing them into the present by releasing past judgments and grievances.
Attitudinal Healing reminds us that perception is a mirror of what is in our mind.
