How I’ve learnt to ride the Wave. Pt. 8 In the Moment – Empowered Choices
As a recap from last week, I was talking to you about how I understand and use the tool of being IN THE MOMENT in my everyday life.
As I mentioned, for me being in “In the Moment” is being in full awareness of what is taking place within your internal and external world. How you feel, what you are thinking and how you are behaving right now. The power behind being aware “In the Moment” is the ability to take charge of your responses and not simply reacting. Therefore, enabling yourself to make conscious decisions about how you choose to live the experience. This is a daily practice for self-mastery. Yes it takes work, however the results speak for themselves when you get to the stage where very little can shift your state of inner peace.
Being aware “In The Moment” is closely linked with the tool of “Accepting What Is” in my process of Riding the Wave of life.
Last week I gave you an example relating to writing the note in the busy airport and how my ideal situation would be to write it in a quiet place in nature and how I chose to empower myself by choosing my response.
Right now I am writing to you from a small local café in Sri Pada, Sri Lanka which my travel companion and I chose because it was quiet on arrival. The area is also classed as sacred, surrounded by lush green mountains. Shanti Shanti. Or so we thought.
After eating our meals in peace and quiet, I took out my computer to write to you with the sound of rain outside and with the fresh cool air gently blowing through. I got one paragraph in and my little gem of a location converted itself into a Reggae Café. The music so loud I can barely hear myself think. So here comes the opportunity for me to choose an empowered response or to step back into my previous reaction mode, disempowering myself with a hissy fit. My own little temper tantrum so to say.
My choice, as with the airport last week was to use this as an opportunity to be adaptable and adjust to the situation. I have ACCEPTED it’s not my version of ideal for typing this, I allowed my feeling of slight agitation to rise in the moment and after a few seconds it subsided. As with everything in life, it changes.
Even though this is taking a lot longer and a lot more concentration (re-reading the same lines), I am still making progress. I am also allowing the beats of Bob Marley’s music to just flow through, as I understand this is just an experience to embrace and grow from. So I’m taking control and regaining my sense of calm.
In the past I would have got really irritated, got up and left. Most likely spending a lot of time searching for my “Ideal” location, which may or may not have presented and complaining to my friend about how I couldn’t write my note because of all of the noise and distractions. Hence giving my power away to external circumstances and blaming others for my personal reaction. A very unaware and unhealthy state to be in.
Every day we are all presented with events which on the surface level do not match what we would like. However to live a more peaceful and abundant life, we have to find ways to maintain balance within our inner world. When we are able to do this, the external world will change to match. Well, our interpretation and responses to the external world shifts to a new, higher perspective.
By being aware and present in the moment we are able to take control of how we deal with the contrast of life when our desires are not manifesting. So I ask you, do you take responsibility for how you are experiencing your life through empowered responses or are you allowing your life to be ruled by automatic reactions, which are disempowering? Which approach would you prefer? Are you ready to change?
The experiences we all face are part of our personal evolution process. We cannot avoid undesirable experiences, however we can choose to embrace them through a state of awareness. We can create different life experiences if we are willing to do the inner work required.
From someone who has been there, the journey of transformation has been tough. Now at the brighter end I wouldn’t change it as I see it was all necessary to get me where I am today. I am sure you have been through challenges which have almost broken you, you have come through it and then you see the blessings. This is taking place every day. So I encourage you to find the tools to help you take back your power and live a truly joyous life. It is possible for us all!
