Cage and Key

Ever wake up and say to yourself, “how in the hell did I get here?” Simple answer- YOU are responsible..

Even in the womb, studies show the environment and gift of what you experience shapes what becomes – YOU!  Yes, genetics are passed on and are visual early in the likeness of our parents; but, it’s the details not known until later in life that is the subject of this awareness ditty.

Often heard it said, every bit of what becomes your awareness contributes to what is commonly referred to as a persons baseline. Scary thing is, this baseline that becomes confirmed, strengthened and reshaped as a person matures will challenge what is previously thought of as a solid moral base of convictions.  Sadly, incremental changes are accomplished with little to no personal awareness, till one day we find ourselves transformed.

Each will pick at and incrementally reform your personal beliefs and will drive your daily decisions affecting and in many cases a limiting future of others not ventured excusing new experiences and newer perspectives.  It is this life’s gift (or curse) of personal openness to new ideas that shapes and reshapes you without even knowing it.  Many times a small ill informed decision become the one you look back on with regret.  Yes you know the one(s).

Without this understanding of how the exposure of ideas and experiences can dilute, augment or even change your psyche, each of us become the product of what others believe we should be.  Personal awareness of how new ideas and experiences can change us is key.   The saying, ‘You become who you surround yourself with on a daily basis’ is true!

Why should this be of any importance?  Basically, do you want to find your passion in this life or follow what other believe it should be. Is a full life the true measure of one’s achievements? It’s a simple question..

We experience life through the varied exposure to our senses.  But we all know you can’t always be awake? Can we?

Here’s the thing, your degree of personal awareness moment to moment is YOU programming and reprogramming your future possibilities.  Dreams Hopes and Prayers have no life without Actions; but if your baseline is one of divisive and limiting, your life’s decisions will be too!  Being awake is not only your way out, you will also hear the Teacher!

It is never too late, wake up now and know you are still the Captain of your Ship!!
