Did you know that every atom in your body was created 13.7 billion years ago. There is no more and no less matter in the universe today than after it was created within the first second of the universe’s creation.
But that is not all that fascinates me. Each breath we take chances are there are some of the same oxygen molecules that were breathed by every famous person who has ever walked the earth. Every element in your body was created by a star. And not just your body but everything you see around you was created the same way. It is inescapable. We are part of something much larger than ourselves. In fact we are part of something much larger than we are able to conceive. We are children of the known universe at the very least. So now that you are truly feeling connected what does this have to do with your daily living?
Life is not just an assembly of atoms. Our experience of life is also the conscious awareness of it. And the conscious awareness comes with a miraculous tool set. Choice, chance and creation.
We have the choice to set the course of our own lives. We and we alone determine where we want to go, how we will respond, what we will accept, who we will embrace, when we do it. These are exciting and laudable choices. We have freedom within that can never be stolen from us no matter what happens to our physical freedom.
Without the element of chance life might become routine, mundane or predictable. By design chance is thrown in to prove to us that we have choice. When we are involved in an accident we still have our choice intact and can decide a triumph of the human spirit as many have done before us. Did we necessarily ask or want for this opportunity. Perhaps not but it has arrived and as always choice arrives with it.
From the choice we make, given all the chance in our life we are the creators of our conscious living. Let me repeat that as it is so profound. Each choice you make creates your experience of life. We are the masters of our destiny. We are the creators of our reality. We are the revealers unless we choose to be the concealers. No one can conceal our life from us except ourselves. No one has the power to do it except us. Only one person can create unconscious living. Me. And so to assist me today I choose the following meditation:
I am the perfect expression of my life.
As it is true for me, so is it true for all others and so it is.
