It Is My Choice

It is my choice to get out of bed. It is my choice what clothes I wear that morning. It is my choice to eat what I do for breakfast. It is my choice to carefully close the door behind me as I leave the house.

It is my choice to feel how my feet feel each step as I walk to my car. It is my choice how I get into the car. It is my choice to wait with starting the car till I’m ready to drive. It is my choice to pay attention to my driving and how that relates to everyone else on the road.

It is my choice to take the road I’m driving on today.

It is my choice where I stop and park my car.

It is my choice to lock my car.

It is my choice to say hello to other people that are here. It is my choice to enter the building. It is my choice which seat I’m sitting on today. It is my choice to listen to and hear what is presented for me to consider.

It is my choice to work out if any of this makes sense to me.

It is my choice to acknowledge when it does make sense.

It is my choice to try out any of what is presented to see how this is for me in my life.

It is my choice to let myself be inspired. It is my choice to get up when I do. It is my choice to look around the room and make eye contact with people as I’m walking to the exit. It is my choice to close the door quietly as other presentations are still proceeding. It is my choice to drive home at the speed I do.

It is my choice what I eat for dinner that night. It is my choice to go for a walk. It is my choice to enjoy the natural beauty of the sunset. It is my choice to feel as awesome as I feel now due to all my choices.

It is my choice to rest my body, go to bed and fall asleep when I do.

It is my choice to be and grow in a relationship with my gorgeous partner, it’s my choice to raise a young child that I love, and support them to be themselves. It is my choice to spend time with my wider family, it’s my choice to live in the regional town I do, it’s my choice to work as a carpenter and it’s my choice to study how I live life and to grow my relationships with people.  

It is my choice to acknowledge the amazing, beautiful changes I have already allowed in my life by trying out what the teachings of Universal Medicine present to me.

It is my choice to appreciate the amazing, beautiful example of living life the way Serge Benhayon lives his life and how this is for me.

It Is My Choice.

With thanks and appreciation for all that has been presented by Universal Medicine for me to consider, and for all the choices Serge Benhayon has made to be where he is today. Both Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon have and continue to inspire me to live my every moment in the fullness of me.

  1. It is great to be reminded of how I am making choices in everything all the time, to bring back my awareness to this fact, and then the consequences of these choices.

  2. The choices we make now and in the next moment or the next, no matter how small can have an effect on our future immediately or can occur, not so obviously, a long way down the track. Life style choices affect our health hugely though we don’t always like to know that, which is why many seem to be surprised when illness occurs.

  3. There are so many choices to make daily that can lead to levels of appreciation. When we choose to bring more responsibility to these there is definitely more of an awareness of how our choices impact every aspect of our lives.

  4. It is my choice to feel what impact the world is having on my body, or to ignore it, cover it up, dull and numb it. When I do feel what is going on, I connect to an inner warmth, a divine spark that is always there ready to shine.

  5. It is a great reminder that from the moment we wake to the moment we sleep, we are constantly making choices. There it is really up to us to be making loving choices that support us throughout our day.

  6. This blog really gets across to me how every moment is a choice and in a way a crossroads, since what I choose in each moment will have ripples that will affect the next choices coming up. I am coming to understand that every choice is a choice of which energy I allow to run me and that all attempts to control life are futile and illusionary.

  7. It is our choice whether we live the love that we are or avoid it. As it is also our choice to discern if the love that we live is genuine or the image we have been sold in its place.

  8. Well that was just awesome – in reading about your day it really made me think about my awareness in everything I do. And my presence. It seems so simple yet it’s so easy for us to get caught up in the busy-ness of those around us. Thanks, Joost, for this cool blog.

  9. I overheard someone yesterday saying they had read something that said we can only control, or similar words, two things in life, this is not true, we have a choice in everything we do, it’s never ending. But is also exposes the illusion, fog and lack of responsibility we live in and have made the choice to – of the fact or bliss our lives just happen to us, when the truth is every choice we make, and that could be the choice to not be aware, for we are always making choices, is a choice made by us, no one else. Do we choose to choose for ourselves or not? And if not who is then running the show? Because it certainly isn’t us.

  10. Gosh that’s a lot of choices! Even just with the ones you have mentioned (let alone the countless others) there is sooo much responsibility in there.

  11. We all have free will to either choose love or all that is not from love. I am free to make a new choice today and that is to be more loving, gentle and tender with myself which will support me to let go of the hardness and protection I can still feel in my body.

  12. I love the responsibility, consequences and learning that comes from deeply knowing that we have a choice in everything we do, it is as simple as that. Thank you Joost.

  13. When I found the truth about life and there are being choices, from that moment on I have to the best of my ability chosen my divine connection to God. I feel this is the part of me that cannot be denied, for this is a reality, which is the only true choice and all else revolves around that first choice.

  14. “It is my choice to feel as awesome as I feel now due to all my choices.” A beautiful appreciation of the responsibility of the choices we make in the way we choose to live.

  15. The power of choice and how effortless it is to change our way of moving in any moment. I love the possibilities of learning that are available to us constantly too. Thank you Joost.

  16. The way you bring choice to my attention in this blog is amazing, as it shows me that in fact life is a succession of choices and that the quality of all choices made up to this point in my life makes how I am now.

  17. Our lives cannot but be transformed when we accept the power we have to make loving choices in life, and the responsibility we then possess to have the quality of life we wish due to those choices.

  18. Thank you Joost, what you share is super important that is: the realness, and absolute honesty and appreciation of where you are at and how you came to be where you are standing now with yourself. Showing us that there is no perfection, only simply being and growing more into ourselves (just like a tree) and growing our leaves out for everyone to see. Love it!

  19. Everything is a choice. The most basic is how we breathe and how we move and the quality in which we live. The most basic is the energy we choose. This it is that creates the foundation of our life and supports all our choices.

  20. A truly loving appreciation of choices made to bring love, learning and connection to living. Thank you Joost.

  21. It is forever our choice whether we let such choices be ruled from the ‘self’ or from the greater All we are a part of. Much illusion lies in not discerning from which pool of consciousness our choices are made.

      1. Yes very true Liane and Golnaz – as it is our choice that adds to either pool of consciousness. Such is our responsibility as to what we are magnifying, and as such adding to.

  22. So simply but powerfully highlighting how in every moment we are offered the choice to be in connection with our Soul, our love within, to all that we are, with God and all or not, through which we then magnify the quality we choose through our bodies, through our movements and as a result is what we are sharing with the world.

  23. Serge Benhayon consistently reminds me that energy is behind every choice that we make. This understanding helps me to understand why I make the choices that I do. Our choices tell us a lot about what we are really choosing.

  24. It was great to come back to this blog and a reminder that every moment and movement is a choice. We are constantly choosing and if in we make a wrong choice we have the next moment to make another choice. Therefore in truth we can never blame anyone for anything as we have a choice to make a change in each moment.

  25. I recently attended the Universal Medicine retreat in Australia and was reminded again of how we make choices, and are responsible for everything that goes on in our lives. But the most important choice, is what energy we align to as there are two types of energy we can choose. One that aligns us to our Soul, where we take great care of ourselves so we can take great care of others, where we can access a world beyond our own human world, and live a life with much more joy, harmony, love and stillness.

    Or one that aligns us to the Spirit, which is very much about itself and makes most – if not all – of its decisions based on me-me-me and at often at disregard of the body.

    Once we choose which energy we want to align to, then that informs the rest of our choices. You can read more here: http://www.unimedliving.com/healing/everyday-healing/energetic-integrity-and-energetic-responsibility.html

  26. Wow Joost that was an amazing blog to read, my whole body said yes and them my mind wanted to run away from the truth you were presenting. Amazing.

  27. Great to re-read this after what seems ages, but today this is the perfect blog for me. This is so true we are making choices every moment of every day, and sometimes we believe that we are not in control of our lives, but how can you not be when we get to make this many choices. Even in a situation where you we feel as though we are being forced into something against our will, we still have the choice to react or not, stay with us or not, breath our own breath or not – the list is endless, as are all of our choices.

  28. To live in a way that knows every movement and thought is our choice, is to live in absolute responsibility. To live with this level of responsibility is living evolution in every step.

  29. A beautiful confirmation of our day to day choices and the impact they have on our lives as a whole. Thank you Joost.

  30. Thank you Joost for the beautiful reminder of the power of our choices in each moment, our choices are either aligned to us evolving or aligned to us devolving – it really is that simple.

  31. We do have choices that we are making continually, which come from a quality of energy that we have aligned to through our body – our movements set us up for the quality of choices that we make – learning this from Serge Benhayon made such sense to me and is something that I am learning to develop more in my life – for example if I find myself wanting to eat something I know that I don’t really need I bring myself back to the quality in the way I am moving with my body to re-imprint the energy that I’m flowing with and this then changes how I think and the kind of choices I’m impulsed to make…

  32. It was a great choice to read this blog this morning Joost thank you. It is so very empowering to note that in every movement we make in our lives we have the choice to choose what feels supportive and right for us in that moment and to note that no choice is a mistake simply a movement that can attested to how we live and that is simply gorgeous.
