Why would 5 million people each month search Google asking, What is destiny?
And why did that number spike recently? Let’s explore…
Destiny is what you create through each and every choice you make … moment by moment.
Destiny sounds a lot like “destination” because destiny involves conscious forward movement towards a destination…your destiny.
The big eye-opener is that destiny is where you end up at the end of a path made of each and every choice that you make.
If you’ve read what Harmonic Pod is About, you know that life is an adventure and that you are the hero of the story that you are enacting.
Just like Luke Skywalker, you are called to adventure in your life and you get to decide, choice by choice, how you will respond to that call.
Along the path you are taking, all kind of things happen and Darth Vadors and inner dragons come up to be dealt with.
How do you perceive and respond to those dragons? Your answer to this question will determine your destiny…your ultimate destination.
Is your path of choices taking you in the direction you want to go?
You can choose to be knocked around by life or jump in and take control of the only thing you CAN control and that is your free will power of choice.
Cool! You have something awesome at your finger tips.
To make this more clear, imagine that someone does something or says something that makes your blood boil with anger.
You have the power of choice to react and stay in the vibration of anger and battle it out with them. Or you can choose a higher road…a path of letting go of the heat that’s building and consciously responding in a way that benefits both of you.
Yikes! How can you do that in the moment when your blood is boiling?
Practice is the key and do it with awareness.
Yes, it is that simple but not so easy to do. For example, if you have the tendency to boil, then when you feel the heat rising, you stop for a second, and make a conscious choice.
According to the degree of heat that’s coming, there are lots of tools available to turn cool you down like Heartmath, meditation, taking a few conscious deep breaths or just simply pause and assess your situation.
No matter what help you choose to take, it is always possible to make a choice to shift out of the heat and into a cool head and peaceful heart.
I wrote a book called The Hidden Light about a young man who is up against a wall and his choice is a matter of life or death. The very first chapter is called The Choice because no matter what anyone does, the rest of their life literally depends on the free will choice they make right now.
What Aaron, the main character, learns about choice is profound.
For each of us the real question remains—Are we willing to make the free will choices that allow our destiny to come forth and shine?
Stay tuned for more about what is destiny and the purpose for your life in our next blog post.
And discover Aaron’s choice, just in case it is helpful the next time you have a choice of your own to make.
Responsibility for your destiny through the power of choice is a great gift because rather than be dragged by the constant waves of life, you get to be the “captain of your own ship.” Happy steering!
