Joshua 24:15 informs us of our ultimate power, the power to choose. “ …..choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”
Who are the gods my fathers served that were on the other side of the flood? The gods of violence and conquest, of William the Conqueror, King Henry III, and Catherine of Aragon, the gods of men and women who lived by force, and as a result, always lived with fear and suspicion.
Who are the gods of the Amorites, in whose land I dwell? They are the gods of making excuses, of glass ceilings, of closed mindedness, and lack of planning and purpose; the god of letting someone else determine my life path; the god of settling for a ‘good job’ or an unequal relationship; the god of the illusion of safe and secure; the god of quitting just because someone tells me ‘no’. These gods, and others, were the gods of my Fathers whose catechism was drilled into my head, sealing my heart, and determining my path.
As a result of investing six months of my life in the Master Key Mastermind Experience, I have mastered the skill of freedom of choice. I have relinquished my pantheon of little gods, dismantled the temples I built in which I worshiped them, and chipped away the cement and limestone which encased my mind, my heart, and my soul. I have toppled the idols of mindlessness, other people’s crises, tasks which, though important, divert me from pursuing my purpose and passion, and freed myself to create a new life.
As for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. God gave me the desires of my heart before I was knit together in my mother’s womb. Almost from birth, I began to build walls around those desires which kept them from being realized. Those desires are my Dharma, my reason for being, the reason I was born into this life. To deny them is a special kind of apostasy as it is the ultimate betrayal of the gift of my life. Truly, that is a sacrilege.
Now, I listen to the song of my heart. The song of the heart is eternal if you are in service without expectation, giving to give. I SING IT OUT, and Sing it out LOUD! I live each moment in joyful bliss, continually surprised and all that comes into me and through me to others simply because I live each day as if it is my last, determined that, if it is my last, it shall be my best.
I cannot explain to you the freedom I have in knowing that I CHOOSE, everything. I CHOOSE freedom. I CHOOSE laughter. I CHOOSE loving-kindness. I CHOOSE happiness. I CHOOSE Love. And those choices transform.
