Is Life Working?

I enjoy the life I have.
Everyday I learn what I want and what is not best for me.
I remember I am the one choosing.
I easily forgive, erase and choose again.

Is Life Working for You?

Are you using your life to have what is best for you?
Is life an obvious projection of your thinking and feeling?
Are you aware that you are an actor in the play of your life?
Do you notice how you can and are writing and directing your life story?

Do you watch your thoughts, feelings and behavior?
Do you notice how you can exaggerate or minimize?
Do you see how your emotional reactions influence your experience?
Have you learned you are not the victim of your own life?

Yes, you can sit back and enjoy the drama.
You can get caught up in your own movie.
You can create more intrigue, tragedy or comedy.
You can live as the villain, hero or persecuted one.

When we look at our life on a timeline, we can see the highs and lows.
We will notice blank places with no memorable events.
We can even see how we cast ourselves in parts we don’t like.
We can see all the limiting beliefs and misperceptions we have held.

Because those around us believe they are victims of life, we often believe it to be true.
Because people tell stories as though we are all “at the effect of life”, we buy in too.
Because we may not want to make out own choices and be responsible, we may go along.
When we wake up to our will and our way, we will enjoy living our truth and singing our own song.

It is fun to explore and experiment with how it all works.
We begin to discover we can take time off with or without getting sick.
We recognize that how people feel about us has to do with how they feel about themselves.
We understand our best defense and protection is a deeply and profoundly loving offense.

Life becomes a play of variety and delight when we find how we can change it anytime we want.
We can go up or down, leave or stick around.
We can sing or laugh or cry at the blink of an eye.
All we have to do is change our mind and go where we want to go.

We can follow the crowd, play nice and get along with everyone.
We can step aside and do our own thing the way we choose.
We can stir up others with our talk and behavior.
We can help and heal and serve with our kind endeavors.

It becomes easy to see how fun life can be, when we practice the play in different ways.
We stop complaining and crying, cease blaming and having regret.
We know this is our life, our choice and our will to live true to ourselves.
We stop feeling guilty and enjoy doing and undoing, creating and erasing.

If your life isn’t working, just change it!
Loving us all as we learn to choose and change.
