You Have More Control Than You Think
Who Is In Control?
Who is really in control?
Who has Authority?
I ponder these questions in the background of my mind. Sort of like the background music they play, to set the tone in a movie scene. I think about my life and the path of life that I lead. Life is a journey and not a destination, I remind myself.
I think about my life and the parts I choose to play in it. Am I really in control? I look at this question as if it were a transparent prism of color and light. I look at my life at home, with family, at Church, at work. This is my prism I believe. Almost like a quilt with many patches; so it is the blanket of life that I have created for myself.
With an analytical perspective, I examine this prism I have created and answer the questions of who is really in control and who has the authority. As I take a step back and re-evaluate my life as if it were a collage or puzzle pieces that have created the life I live.
Stay with me as I examine and interpret this perception I have. Maybe you can relate?
* If I take a look at my home life, I look around me and smile. I have chosen where to live, what pets to have, what furniture to decorate my home with. I have chosen the people I surround myself with and the relationship I have with my family. I have chosen this. I have painted this canvas with the choices I have made. I suppose you can say this is a form of self control.
* If I take a look at Church and my participation.........I am who I am and I am everywhere I go. And so it is with God. Whether I attend church service or sleep in, God comes first in my life. Attending Church can become a habit, a hobby or a dedication that I choose. A choice I make for myself. Another form of self control.
* If I take a look at work, regardless of profession, I become the third person and view my participation from this stand. How am I showing up? Who am I in this role? What choices do I have ? What rules am I playing by? It is a funny way to look at this, but pay attention as there might be a nugget or tool in it for you too;
Regardless of profession...........how do I see myself in my role? Am I everything I want to be? What part am I playing? Maybe its easier to relate to a board game as I clarify my perception; To navigate, one must have a vision or direction. One must choose a color peg as to take a stand and begin the journey with a role of the dice. What is my attitude in the beginning stages of this journey? I look at this from another point of view; Lets say my vision is created out of a boom a rang. I choose the color boom a rang and I throw it with intention and integrity in the direction I choose. What I can expect back in the retrieving boom a rang is the karmic reflection of what I threw to begin with.
Are you following me?
So, who has authority? Well, I would have to say that I do. A choice I have made alone. Another form of self control. I have the authority regardless of who I am working for or where I work. it comes down to my choice. A choice of self control.
If we take this even further and look at government and politics, I would have to say that I perceive this to be a pond of various fish in a deep sea. A perception that may be viewed at as out of control.
However, to be in self control and live a life with intention and integrity, is the life I lead. You and I , without a doubt influence those around us. When you and I are in control of ourselves, there is no one else to control but ourselves. I invite you and remind you to take your stand, own your power and be the best YOU that you can be. No one else will make decisions for you but you in your life.
Many blessings for a beautiful life.

OWN YOUR POWER
"Own your power" said the judge at the stand
Who are you and why do you not understand
You have complete control of you
Its really out of my hands
Control is the device you hold
Own your power and behold
Intention is what you mold
With integrity, you shall never get old
"Own your power" said the judge from the tower
Believe in yourself
You are much greater than you know
Control is the remote you press and at times withhold.
"Own your power" said the judge from he podium made of gold
Don't be afraid, of your own power
Self control can be painted like a flower
Take your stand and behold
You are the only one in control.
