You are walking into the future of whatever you do with your mind. So, where is your mind? -Abraham-Hicks
It's anotherGroundhog Day check- in, being the seventh of July or 7/7 and I feel as though I've made it to the summit. The top, of one of many mountains.
In my May review, I was learning to read between the signs posted along the way: "This Way to Contentment" and "This Way with Contentment" and I realized that the second path meant that I had already arrived at the first. The second pathway also promised to be a lot more enjoyable so I decided that I wanted to find Contentment right where I stood.
I got back into the habit of writing my morning pages, and made it a point to reach heart coherence at least three times a day with myemWave device. I've been using these tools sporadically for a few years so it wasn't difficult at all to add them into my life on a daily basis. As a wise teacher once told me, "Where the mind goes, it grows" and I've been finding contentment in nearly every step I take.
At the beginning of the year, I wanted to commit to two practices that would make me healthier and stronger. I would be happy as long as I was healthy and strong. One could choose a number of conditions, actions or material items aside from "healthy and strong", as prerequisites to being happy. The desire to feel good, I believe, is the common denominator and our single intention to be happy is the way we control our future numerator.
When I come to a fork in the road, I will always be reminded of Yogi Berra saying "take it!", but I will always choose to go with contentment. "Why go if you're already there?" you might ask. Because that's the game of life! The object is to get to the top of as many mountains as possible and the winner is the one who's happy playing the game, not because they climbed the most mountains!
