Endless Possibilities

The openness to endless possibilities manifest when there’s no past labels associated with doing what’s in front of you. The Universe provides possibilities with an open heart that’s not living in the past.

One’s openness is their greatest attribute because without it nothing arises, or at least nothing that’s beneficial. An open heart leads to possibilities never experienced before, but when the heart is closed, so are the doors to the possibilities. Whatever comes to the fore front in life is to be seen as it is with an openness to not label it. In this way life can be experienced anew as the Universe opens up more and more possibilities. Even if its some past behavior, without the judgment of applying a label, it allows for the heart to remain open and the possibility to go beyond the past to experience something anew.

Newness doesn’t always have to be as an aha moment, it can be a simple act of not judging what’s in front of you, and just experiencing that and moving on. Once its labeled, the heart closes and so do all the possibilities along with it. To experience all the possibilities that life offers, is to not allow the past to be a part of what is being done right now. If it is, obviously it remains as something old, not something new. But even though it may be from a past habitual mind pattern that’s in place, its only old because it is labeled as such. Without this label, the heart remains opened and the possibilities that are provided by the Universe are endless.

I grew up in Newark, New Jersey, one of six children. I have been married for 25 years. I own a home, and I have two children. I have been at the same job for 28 years. I am the happiest I have ever been and it is all because of the Love that has always been in my life. I attribute all that has happened to me to that Love. None of what has transpired in the last five years of my life has anything to do with any accomplishments on my part. There was always a lot of love in our home as I grew up, but for reasons unknown to me at the time I was always in trouble. I was at the top of my brother-in-law’s “Who My Sister Shouldn’t Marry” list. I drank alcoholically, gambled, abused drugs and painkillers. I bounced from relationship to relationship. Even after I stopped abusing alcohol and drugs in 1987, my so-called outer troubles stopped, but my self-centered behavior never changed. All I did was substitute one compulsion for another. Although my addiction became more respectable—taking the form of material possessions—I was still trapped, migrating restlessly from one obsession to another. I went to Twelve Step meetings, derived some benefit from them, and then fell away. My loved ones got me into de-tox and rehab programs. But once I was released, the cycle of insatiable craving started all over again. This cycle seemed to work for me . . . until it didn’t. And then my life changed — not instantly or magically, but profoundly. I share this change in It’s Monday Only in Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts. I discovered that I wasn’t dependent upon a substance or activity, but ruled by my ego. My need to reach outside myself for fulfillment was created by a false perception of deficiency. If this sense of lack didn’t exist in me, there wouldn’t have been a need to reach and grasp. My credentials for writing this book are simply that I live this change each day. My view of life is so different from the way it used to be. Through the practice outlined in my book, I have learned to quiet my mind enough to allow my heart to open. The quieter my mind becomes, the more Love becomes the default setting of my life. This is truly a modern-day miracle, a miracle that can happen to anyone who has the urge to change. www.mondayinyourmind.com
