Which Will You Choose?

Bruce Lipton, a cell biologist and a tenured professor at the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine grew increasingly disenchanted with his life. “The harder I tried to find happiness and satisfaction in my personal life, the more dissatisfied and unhappy I became.” He said he felt fate had dealt him a bad hand and that he had to accept it without question.

            In a last effort to alleviate this struggle, he took a teaching position at a medical school in the Caribbean. It was here in a place far removed from everything familiar that he began to approach his life from a new perspective, seeing things he had never seen before, feeling things he thought dead in himself, coming alive again.

One day, for a brief moment while reviewing his research, Bruce had a scientific epiphany. He discovered,

 “…a cell’s life is controlled

 by the physical and energetic environment

 and not by its genes.”

“You have within you the power, capacity and ability to literally—now this may shock you—literally change around the DNA that is the basic genetic makeup of your life….by changing the way you perceive things”

What does this mean for YOU?

It means YOU have the power to take your life, your mindset, your heart, your soul, your Self, in any direction, ANY direction, you desire. And you begin by listening to your heart of hearts. What is it telling you today? Will you honor it? If you don’t, who will? You are creating the life you perceive available to you. If you believe it’s a struggle, if you believe its filled with pain, if you believe good things rarely happen to good people, then that is the life you shall have. But if you believe that life is meant to be filled with joy, overstuffed with love and spilling its magic all over you---then that too, is the life you shall have. Which will you choose?

Can you remember what you would have felt had this been you?
Your heart beats quickly.
You breathe deeply.
You can't hide your smile.
Where do I start?
Oh my GOSH! Its all MINE?
A lightness of being.
Pure joy.
Pure magic.

Do we buffer ourselves from the real world by wearing too many masks? Are we afraid to really feel, to let our real selves emerge? Why is it more acceptable to appear numb than to show we truly feel? Is there something wrong with being vulnerable? What if we are cutting ourselves off from one of the surest routes to joy--feeling, expressing, being authentic! And not just at home, but in public, too! 

Have you ever thought about how everyone in the grocery store pretends to be the sole customer? Unless your cart is bombarded by another cart, rarely does anyone speak to anyone else. Why is that? What would happen if you found a peach that reminded you of a fleshy bottom. And what if you started to giggle like a four year old, to yourself. Then, what if a stuffy looking lady comes by to look, like you, at the nice new peaches. Do you share what made you laugh or do you pretend you are numb, keeping all the silliness to yourself so you don't dare look 1. idiotic, 2. childish, or 3. perverted. You decide to show her. Your face lights up as you show her the fleshy bottom of the peach! You giggle as you ask her if she sees what you see. She looks at you like you are 1. idiotic, 2. childish, 3. perverted. You keep giggling. YOU have fun. YOU enjoy life's magic. You FEEL! And you know what...when that lady is driving home, safe in her fancy spotless car, she too, begins to giggle. She wonders to herself why she was so stuffy with you, why she couldn't laugh, too. I'm gonna next time, she says to herself outloud, I'm gonna start having more fun like that, too!

Let's challenge ourSelves today to experience more rawness, to feel more deeply, to share more of our Selves than we ever have before. That may mean surrounding yourself with kinder, gentler, more loving energy or it may mean shifting the perspectives of those sedentary souls you find yourself with....or maybe a little bit of both. Cultivate what you value, what you want, what makes your heart and soul sing and the good life is yours. Poof! Now!

The good life is a process,
not a state of being.
It is a direction
not a destination.
--Carl Rogers
