Your Choice is Determined By What You Value
If you allow yourselves to become preoccupied with the temporal, you are living in time. As always, your choice is determined by what you value. Time and eternity cannot both be real because they contradict each other. If you will accept only what is timeless as real, you will begin to understand eternity and make it yours. ACIM
As I stood in the kitchen this morning I realised that some of the things I worried or fussed about seems no longer important, don't get me wrong, those things are still there, but now my attention is somewhere else so there is less time for me to dwell on it.
What I have learnt is there is a balance between giving of yourself to a cause because you want to and giving of yourself because of expectations.
It is all in the intention. The Why
When I am fully immersed in serving with the sole intention of serving, the little things do not become big things, I am able to discern that some of the things that I am fussing over is really a call to action to shift focus from ego or they are totally unimportant.
When we are called into serving something bigger than ourselves, we can discern an ego based decision with a purpose based decision.
The foundations upon which we build our lives sometimes change, they become stronger and more solid
The pettiness and entitlement behaviour becomes less and less, we become less judgemental and more compassionate.
We are all called to serve in some way. Some may ignore the calling and continue to search
I truly believe there is a unique divine purpose for each and every one of us, when we decide to listen to the guidance and follow it, our level of service to our communities, our own lives becomes even more phenomenal and purposeful.
