Decisions ... Decisions


Did you ever think about the fact that we’re constantly being hit with the opportunity to Decide? To go here or go there … To buy this or buy that … Do this or do that …
The classic of all Decisions was probably put forth by William Shakespeare, who may have said it best: “To be, or not to be. That is the question.”

To be” … to be aware, authentic, fully alive, The Best You Could Possibly Be … “Or not to be” … to be dimmed down, numbed out, unaware, not really live at all.

To be conscious … Or to be unconscious.

And whether you realize it or not, that one Decision will influence, guide and shape every other choice thereafter.

It will impact the quality of your life and while each person will have their own version of the Decision to make … in its essence, it will be a choice between a well-lived life and an un-lived one … a life full of meaning … Or not … a life deeply felt … Or not ... a life lived from the heART ... Or Not!

At its core, this Decision is a choice to accept the abundance of the Universe, to become the most “you” you can be, and to fulfill your potential … Or not.

It is an invitation to break past denial and to pierce the illusion that you are not worthy of a magnificent life …

It is also a Commitment … a choice about what you care about, what you value and what matters to you.

You don’t need to know the How of the Decision … you just need to make it. The How will be revealed … And from that point the adventure begins …

In his book, The Scottish Himalayan Expedition, W. H. Murray tells us his explorer’s experience:

Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always in effectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative [or creation] there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: 


that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.

All sorts of things occur to help one that would otherwise never have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all matter of incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man would have believed
