Sometimes the help we’re looking for is right in front of our noses, but we don’t see it because we’re expecting something different.
The question is, can we be more aware of our own actions?
Time is time. You can either waste it or you can do something that will truly help you in through the course of life.
We are busy solving problems with our heads in the sand. Are your own actions and their consequences bothering you? Conscious action can have positive consequences such as peace and clarity. We get so obsessed with the consequences, we forget about the actions, so we repeat our actions over and over. Societal issues like domestic violence and other crimes are examples where negative consequences are ignored. Unless you change the action, you will continue to get the same results. You aren’t being punished, you are taking actions that produce undesired results. We need to take control of our actions, fundamentally examine what is causing those actions, and make a conscious choice to change.
If you don’t take the time to sow the seeds of peace in your life, you will never have peace. You will be like a dodo bird just running and running. Instead of taking time and doing something positive, we run on autopilot. You are the leader of your own life. How are you running the show? Are you being conscious and making an effort to understand yourself? Is your heart full of gratitude? When the unexpected happens and you are not in control what do you do? Your time should be occupied with the thoughts that matter to you. Thinking thoughts that will bring joy and happiness to you are what is important.
The rescue boat of life comes and offers us safety and we turn it away because it doesn’t appear as we expect. Conscious living requires us to pull ourselves away from all the pictures of our mind and follow our hearts.
