Are We Settling For Too Little? “Pay Forward” #53

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – Are We Settling For Too Little?
By Your grace I am loved, healed, taught, forgiven, empowered, enlightened, enriched, communicated to, co-created with and awakened. All of those ten affirmations are being fulfilled, daily. “No matter how thin you slice it, there are always two sides.” The past, present and future all have two ways of viewing them; I can choose to perceive them having a good purpose or view them negatively. Why would that be a hard choice to make, even by one who is a little off centered? In A.A. we learn that our past can be transformed into loving assets, why not offer all of our past up for transformation? Now, is the only time we can do, say, think or feel anything, so why not choose the good purpose? Now that I am thinking about the future why not expect a lot of wonderful surprises, it takes the same amount of time and energy, maybe even less than the negative stuff? Living with an open mind and open heart our unique life is filled with surprises, but we may have to stop, look and listen for them. If we choose to live our Father’s Love and His Will we will have many promises come true. Our faith is our perceiving power, linked with the divine power will shape our outer experience in a most wonderful way, His Way. Let us ask more of our Father, more of A.A. and more of ourselves. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
