At any time, we may awaken, take responsibility, and change our destiny. We are immensely powerful beings who have strayed from the path of light and love to experience this realm of duality and fragmentation for the purpose of self-realization and reunion.
The separation and fear we feel are illusions, but we have become so accustomed to the darkness and the struggle to feel complete that we have become “addicted” to these conditions. Although the fear is constraining and limiting, it feels natural and normal. That’s why letting go of these constraints and limi- tations and embracing change can feel like an overwhelming challenge. Nevertheless, we know in our hearts that love is the path and prosperity is our birthright.
Examine your leisure time and diversions. What are you doing when not at work or attending to your family? Are you attending to something conscious and constructive? Or are you doing something destructive and sabotaging yourself? Leisure time, such as watching a great movie or reading a good book, can be completely purposeful and constructive if you are conscious and aware of what you are doing.
In your leisure, observe if you are attending to family, friends, and matters of interest, education or training, TV, reading, or other types of leisure like health and fitness activities.
