When our level of thinking is raised beyond what appears to be evident, we open ourselves up to a whole new way of looking at everything. There is so much more to life than what our limited senses tell us. We have a choice to accept the limited thinking or to explore the possibilities of thinking beyond and expanding our awareness. When we choose to expand, life itself increases and everything can change.
We are spiritual ideas and spirit is always seeking expansion and fuller expression. It’s natural to want to grow, be more, experience more, do more. We’re supposed to. The purpose of life is to grow and evolve, to become more of who we’re meant to be. Many people have a yearning for more but don’t know what, they just know there’s more to life for them. That was me. Life was good but I knew there was more. I found it during my pursuit of personal development. My understanding has expanded, and I continue to grow. I will never stop now that I’ve learned a better way of thinking.
Raising your level of awareness and thinking is a form of expansion. This is when you feel good, life is good, the glass is half full, you’re happy, loving, positive and thinking of others. It’s easy to spot someone in this expanded state. It’s also easy to spot someone in a contracted space, the opposite of expanded. Contraction is experienced as unhappiness, feeling discouraged, selfishness, anger, frustration, depression. Having an awareness of your feelings will indicate the state you are in, expanded or contracted.
Our experience is determined by our perspective. Our perspective is formed by our thinking, limited or unlimited, open or close minded, expanded or contracted. It’s the story we create about how we perceive our life to be. It’s what we create, knowing or unknowingly.
What is your story, the one you’ve created for your life? Does it feel good? Is it true? How do you know? When you’re contracted it doesn’t feel good, but it’s the story that’s the problem.
What are you telling yourself? What is your attention on? When we put our attention on what we perceive as limited and a story is created around that, we just get more of the same. The way to change is by changing your mind, change your story. Write a new story, a good story, the way you want your life, your job, your relationship to be. Put aside the limited thinking that is keeping you stuck where you are, all because you can’t see a different way or think your way is the only way. Just imagine what can be when you adjust your thought, open up to the possibilities and see things through a new lens.
It’s nothing outside of us that needs to be changed. It’s an inside job. It’s our thinking, our perception and when we open our thought to a new way of looking at something, we will discover joy and happiness, an expanded awareness of what life really can be like.
Put aside control. Put aside limited thinking and judgement. Be open. Receive the ideas that can improve your life and be grateful. Choose expansion and live free.
