Stepping into a Higher Plane

12 Jan

“The possibility of stepping into a higher plane is quite real for everyone. It requires no force or effort or sacrifice. It involves little more than changing our ideas about what is normal.”
— Deepak Chopra

We have two basic choices in life. To live in appreciation, or To live in condemnation.

To live in appreciation of all that we have and all that comes to us – without judging it as “good” or “bad” – we acknowledge the gift and increase its value. That’s what “appreciation” means – “to increase the value of.”  To live in this mind-set is to allow for our transformation to a higher existence.

To live in condemnation is to live as a victim. It is to see everything as “not enough” or a negative outcome. It is to see only suffering and lack and squalor. Life becomes a burden to be endured, a prison sentence. To live in this manner is to condemn ourselves to a lifetime of unhappiness, anger and resentment which can eat us up like a cancer and may even manifest itself as some form of debilitating disease.

It is our thought process that determines where we dwell. This is not to deny that life has its challenges. Life is composed of miraculous events and horrific mishaps, and all degrees of happenings in between.

If we expect challenges to be “normal” then we take them in stride. Champions use them to strengthen determination. Quantum Physics tells us that without Resistance, there can be no Creation. So when we see Resistance as “normal” we realize that we are in the process of Creation, that our goals or intentions are being birthed with a little help from the natural laws of the Universe!

There are times when I find myself in a dark place in my mind, but just as quickly as I recognize it I can choose to move out of it. I can choose to dwell in the realm of infinite possibilities rather than stay stuck in limitation. Always, it is mine to determine.

I have found we make real what we believe and our mind set determines our lifestyle and level of happiness. – Grandmother Pa’Ris’Ha

    This is so true. Whenever we put a thought out there, we are putting limits onto what ever it is we are desiring. So state “I have — and let go and let God” No even the “sky is the limit” now.
