Keep Your Head Straight!

Hi All:  In the eighties a book entitled: A Course In Miracles was read throughout the world.  My copy shows the 80's copyright of 1 volume to have been in 1985.  The book was first published in June 1976 in three volumes. 365 days are required to read the book's guidance because you read 1 a day.  I did that reading in 1989.  Last week I was in a Unity Church bookstore and discovered a box of small cards with quotes from the course.  I purchased the box so that I could pull 1 card per day first thing in the morning to "intent" my day.  Here follows the quote from 1 card that I would like to share with you.
     "Each day, each hour, every instant, I AM CHOOSING what I want to look upon, the sounds I want to hear, the witnesses to what I want to be the truth for me." (Emphasis added.)
    While reflecting on the statement, the idea came to me that the statement encapsulates the concept of free will. And that part of the statement of "what I want to be the truth for me" makes it clear that we give truth to perspectives -ours and/or that of someone else. When we give a perspective "truth" in our lives, including that of playing the "victim," that truth will come to pass for us as our reality.  Likewise, when we differ with a perspective, if we refuse to give it truth, the full play out of the perspective simply has no room in our reality to manifest.
    Above all else, relinquish victimhood in all areas of your life.  Reflect, ponder, Choose. YOUR CHOICE is what you will receive.  No choice by you and you get a soup that will ride you along on a muddle of confusion.
Love & Light
Soul and  - One of the sweet spots of the universe.
