What Can Change?  “Pay Forward” Gift # 164

I Greet The Indwelling Changer. 

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is - What Can Change?  What can we change or get someone to help us do it? Can the past change?  Our experience of the past can change but not the past. For example, our experience as an alcoholic can change from one of the weakness, worthlessness, and harmfulness; to an understanding that it is a disease, which can be transformed into an asset.  What about changing the present? Yes, by focusing on the here and now we have the power of choice. If I’m lingering in the past, I’m living out an illusion or projecting it into the future. In that situation, I’m letting the past equal the future. What are the chances of changing the future?  I can choose to live the present, will move me toward my heart’s desire instead of a way from it. For example, I may need to learn a skill that compliments my heart’s desire. I can choose this moment to put myself in the place to learn that skill and take the action, here and now. I can choose to focus my attention on what I believe is my Higher Power’s purpose for me and take the next step toward it.  “Keep thy heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life.”  “Truth is by nature self-evident. As soon as you remove the cobwebs of ignorance that surround it, it shines clear” Mohandas Gandhi. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
