Choices


We make many choices every day. If where to count them, they would be in the hundreds. Most of the time we don't even think about our choices,  just Imagine if you would stop and think about all the choices you had to make in a day, you won't get much accomplished.
Most choices are a result of our thoughts based on habits and personal belief systems. Out of habit and practice we automatically make most of our decisions. One other factor that comes into play in making choices is the state of our thought process, are we in a positive or negative state of mind when making choices. If we are in a negative frame of mind we are influenced by negative thoughts and concepts, but in a positive state of mind we attract positive and inspiring thoughts. This is especially true when making life altering choices. All choices influence our future much like our thoughts create our future. Matter of fact thoughts inspire and influence choices.
If you have a negative point of view on a subject, most likely you choices about that subject will be negative. For example, if you have negative thoughts about guns, if asked to go a gun range you will most likely will resist that activity.
The question is, how do you make choices that will influence your life to achieve a desired outcome? Do you want to make choices to get the desired job, relationship, or health in the most desirable fashion.
Where are two major factors that come into play in making choices. It is your choice. Is it fear and the negative thoughts and beliefs that spring fear or is it love driven, that affect our choices.
I want to introduce the concept of soulful living. As we are stated choices are made every day. In making these choices are we going to be influenced by living from the ego or from the soul. The ego itself is not a bad thing, but when we look at the world and the choices we make in the world from an ego that is tainted by fear, negative beliefs, and negative habits are choices are bound to create an undesired outcome.
The question is how do we create choices that create and maintain: happiness, joy, fun, and prosperous living?
Let me now bring up the idea of soulful living. In simple terms it is living from your soul essence and not your ego mind. It really is  about living from love and all the aspects of love, being positive, and connected to something greater than your human personality(ego mind).
In soulful living you learn to connect to your soul essence or call it higher-self. You begin to rely on that input to make decisions and the soul becomes the guiding influence in your life.
These are questions to end this part of the topic. How do I get to that state where I am automatically making soulful choices? What do I have to do to live a soulful life?
In the next article I will address those questions and others.
