Stuck in a rut? Meditation for 3/18/2014

Brays Island; SC

“I refuse to allow my circumstances to dictate my decisions.”  - Debbie DeJong

“Circumstances are the rulers of the weak; they are but the instruments of the wise.”  - Samuel Lover

     Circumstances are defined as the overall situation and condition of our life.  It is very easy to get lulled into thinking that circumstances are permanent, whether they are “bad” or “good”.   If we “run away” from circumstances, we take the same defects of character we had prior to running with us and will ultimately end up in the same set of circumstances in a different location.  We cannot change the laws of nature and we cannot change other people, but we can change our attitude and our selves.

     The quality of our awareness, our personal experience and the depth of resources to seek wisdom from determine the quantity and quality of options that we become aware of.   Just because we are unwilling or unable to make ourselves aware of choices that we have does not mean they do not exist.  Being fully present and aware, looking for opportunities, seeking counsel and acting in the face of fear are choices we always have.   Circumstances do not make us who we are, but they surely will expose the depth of our character.

Today, may I seek progress.
