"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way - in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only."
~ Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities
Dickens is a favorite of mine.His insight is incredible, and his depth is amazing. The truth spoken here is is so profound.
How we view a situation is how it appears to us. If we see ourselves as lacking or needing, then that’s what we see. We have the ultimate choice within us to choose whether the world or or life is essentially good or essentially bad. It is impossible for a change to happen in our experience without our changing how we look at our present moment. As soon as we are willing to release what I call “our story,” that thing which keeps us from experiencing something new, we cannot move into greater expression of ourselves.
We cannot allow love to come into our life, unless we are willing to be open to love, and in order to do that, we must be willing to release any already held thoughts that we are either unlovable, that we have been wronged, or that we don’t know how to love. Hidden somewhere in the interior of “the self” we already are Love.
This is true for prosperity, for health, for everything we wish to attract into our experience. So, lighten up, enjoy the moment and get ready for an even greater experience of you.
