Our choices shape our future.
Enlightenment doesn’t happen accidentally. It’s a choice that is made, in every moment of every day.
If you’ve ever accomplished something challenging, like getting a college degree, earning a black belt in martial arts, completing a business certification, finishing a marathon, or realizing a breakthrough opportunity for something you’re passionate about, you know that it took time, dedication, and consistent focus. Enlightenment is not an accomplishment or something that you achieve, but it does take the same kind of focus and consistency to wake up. If you want to live in higher states of mind, if you want to vibrate at exquisite frequencies of Light, if you want to become enlightened, then you need to make the choices that will lead to those outcomes.
You are where you are right now because of the choices you’ve made. If you want your realization to be different from what it currently is, you have to make different choices.
—Advanced Path by Mu
Certain times of the year are ideal to review and reset, for example, the equinoxes, solstices, and the start of a new year. There is a special power during these times, when particular doorways open for radical transformation, and a fresh start is possible. Will you see this opportunity and use it to change? Are you ready to shift your focus and create new habits that will lead to different outcomes? You don’t have to wait for a particular day of the year to alter your choices. Every moment is a great moment to choose enlightenment!
Not every choice will be easy. In fact, some choices will feel hard in the moments when you have to make them. If what you really want is enlightenment, then what feels hard will pale in comparison to the agony of not waking up. When an unenlightened life has become unbearable, you will start to make the choices that lead to enlightenment. You will do what it takes no matter what.
