The sole commandment of conscious living

Carpe diem, goes the old Latin tag. “Seize the day.”  The sole commandment of conscious living is no less proactive, but more conscious: choose the day.

We have learned that what we encounter on any day has a great deal to do with what we bring to that day. We draw or repel different events and encounters according to our attitudes and the basic energy we are carrying. We find doors open or closed according to our willingness or refusal to change our expectations and our plans as circumstances change.

We choose every day, whether we are aware of this or not. If we tell ourselves we have no choice, that is a choice we are making. If we tell ourselves that we have no choice because a situation is beyond our control, we forget that we can still choose our response to the world, and that can change everything.

Truth, in our lives, is what we remember and act upon. Lists of rules or intentions can become like grocery lists; we are forever in danger of forgetting items or getting what matters mixed up.

So my list of personal commandments reduces to this: Choose the day. The content of that choice is less important than the consciousness that we have a choice and need to approach life, on any day, as choosers, not spectators, victims, or consumers.

    per apera ad astra

    mans ambition know’s no bars:
    with vision clear he carves his way
    through hardship to the stars.

    This was an epigraph in a book I found today…. I choose the stars!

    This wonderful post made me consult again my mid-April dream on the topic of choice.
    In that dream I am teaching and in one moment the deputy of school enters the room. He is seeking the best singer in the class for some performance. Two girls stand up. I am taken aback and wondering how on earth he is going to resolve this dilemma since I am aware that both of them are equally outstanding singers. To my even greater astonishment the deputy chooses another girl sitting with us in the semicircle. I didn´t notice her before, she is a new person, slim, tall and with short light red hair. She makes the impression of an artistic and very independent person. In the dream I am asking one of the two standing girls about that newcomer. She replies in a friendly way that she really is excellent and that Bulgarians and Germans liked her singing a lot. I woke up puzzled and curious about the meaning of the dream. In first days it remained rather obscured to me probably because I sometimes act on the idea that I have just two options in life: black and white. This dreams seems to want me to acknowledge that there are always more, sometimes new and unexpected possibilities we can choose from.
    This dream deals only with one side of the whole complex of taking decisions. When I am thinking about the individual choice from more idealistic perspective, I agree with Bo Yin Ra´s words that all the time we choose from two ways, one that lifts us up and the other that hinders us from keeping at the higher level of consciousness.
    Thank you a lot for sharing all your great ideas.
