A hungry tiger was following a man. The man, turning in desperation to face the beast, yelled, "Why don't you leave me alone?!" Yelling back, the tiger said, "Why don't you stop being so appetizing?!"
*A Sufi Story
We are energy expressions ceaselessly flowing from the Energy Flow of God-ing. We transform Energy into our energy, our very selves, by the choices we make.
To draw to yourself positive energy, become positive energy. To become this positive energy, the will must be turned toward positive energy, the Light. For choices flow from the direction of the will.
You are a co-creator with the Divine. You have freedom of choice. God will not violate that freedom.
Your choices, flowing from freedom and will, lead you toward a particular form of energy. You become an energy-expression by the habit birthed from many choices.
If you are not living a life of love, joy, and peace, do not blame God, genetics, family up-bringing, "satan," fate, bad luck, other persons.... Quit complaining! Quit blaming! Change direction!
The will and freedom leading to alienation from divine qualities of love, joy, and peace, can lead to the fullest measure of each. The fullness begins with one turn of the will, one choice leading in the right direction.
1) What are choices you are making consistently that lead to a stronger positive energy as the quality of your personhood?
2) Are you involved in any negative words, thoughts, or actions that need your turning from them to eliminate them from your life?
