Every moment is a new opportunity to make a different choice.
When we are lost in unconscious thought or gripped by emotion, we do not realize that we have a choice. When we are faced with a "difficult" situation, fear often overcomes us.
Fear, stress and resistance have never brought any benefits to a difficult situation. They are only destructive. When we are relaxed and open, we can deal with any situation, no matter how difficult, with clarity and effectiveness.
Since we have a choice and we know that fear and resistance do not help us in any situation, why not make a different choice?
How do we make a different choice? It seems difficult because we are unconscious. We can make a different choice by bringing the light of awareness to our thoughts. We can make a different choice when we know that we can make a different choice. We can make a different choice when we remember we have a choice.
When faced with a difficult circumstance, challenging crisis, or an irrational person, let's bring as much love as possible into the situation. Let's bring as much openness as possible into the situation. Let's bring as much presence as possible into the situation.
Let's choose love.
