"Whether it is a castle or a button,
if you are using it as your object of attention,
it is summoning Life Force.
It is the feel of the Life Force
that life is about.
The reason that you are summoning it
-- Abraham, Esther Hicks
[Classic post from 9-27-17]
I separated the two phrases above because the first line of the second phrase is the key idea to me: "It is (whatever we are giving our attention to that is summoning Life Force) the feel of the Life Force that life is about.
In the last few days on social media and all over the Internet people are giving their attention to some popular things. It might be some colored cloth, a symbol shaped like a cross, a bombastic world leader, or two, or three, or four, a team of competitive teams stocked with individuals, and whenever we gather individuals, there is always some squirming going on because we like our space.
What happened to what we were giving our attention to a year ago? Or six months ago? Or last month? Weather? Economics? Elections? Holidays? But, it matters not what or who or when. It matters only that we are actively giving our attention and summoning Life Force, Life Energy, feeling our way as we wander on our Life Adventures.
You feel that you want to share your thoughts, and another wants to tell you to stuff it, and if you don't, they will shut down their account and ignore you. Whatever we are giving our attention to is summoning.
Does this happen automatically, or without our permission? Do we have automated reactions? Of course, but they are only beliefs that we have held that are temporarily challenged. They summon as easily and effectively as choosing on purpose with careful thought. How we summon, why we summon is not nearly as important as the reality that we do summon. We are constantly summoning.
There is only one question worth asking ourselves that I can think of since no matter what we do we are summoning. That question is this: Is this what I want?
Is this what I want to summon? Is this how I want to feel? We always, always, always, and in all ways have the power and freedom of choice. We are so free that we can choose bondage as Abraham, Esther Hicks has often said. In any case, we always have the power and freedom to choose.
Instead Of Beginning With 'I Believe,' Try This: 'I Want _______', Then Fill In The Blank.
