When New Energy Enters Your Life

I had a wonderful realization recently while driving home from work. I recalled a time in life when an incredible opportunity presented itself to me, seemingly out of nowhere. Incredible luck and good fortune was sent in the most unusual manner, shifting my paradigm and dramatically improving the quality of my life. Incidentally there have been many times in my life when something special was sent my way, at a time just when I needed it, but didn't know it at the time.

You see, once upon a time there was a monster I knew named 'Zog', a bully type with a Machiavellian philosophy whose style was to mow down everyone in his path. A total monster on every level, devoid of morals or interpersonal skills, he was hated and feared by hundreds. On top of all that he had the worst breath known to man. I recall the dark days when it was easy to be baited and drawn into his web of darkness and negativity. Every encounter would be confrontational or threatening, designed to intimidate anyone in his path. I observed it with others who had come before and even those around me at the time. It was not only tolerated, it was condoned and welcomed and simply became a way of life. As a Christian I knew it just wasn't right to harbor such feelings of hatred toward another person, but Zog seemed to thrive on it all.

One morning I awakened and sat up straight in bed and saw a vision of what I can only now describe as the future. It was incomprehensible at the time. I rubbed my eyes in disbelief. A proverbial cloud had appeared before me with a hand extended holding a branch sprouting leaves. I saw energy. I felt action, movement, change. I knew that something had happened but I didn't know what.

For the sake of confidentiality and anonymity, lets just say I realized that I had complete control and power over 'Zog' that I hadn't known previously. Similar to a kid waking up from a nightmare, once awake the monster goes away. That is sort of what occurred in this situation. The Great Awakening had arrived, (although even then I didn't realize just how much would change further down the path of life). Everything had become clear, and within a very short time I put things into action. I didn't try to "stop" thinking about 'Zog', I just replaced him completely with a mental equivalent or a totally new reality. 

New energy had entered my life, and I was grateful to recognize it and seize the moment. I learned an important lesson from it all. No matter how ugly a situation may be, no matter how horrible, we always have choices of what we will allow to affect us. Let go of negative energy in life, push it aside and replace it with positive things. God doesn't want us to be miserable. I believe we are meant to be happy. Happiness therefore is a state of mind. Allow yourself to be happy. Open minds are able to recognize opportunities and let new energy enter our lives.

Forget about the 'Zog' in your life. Don't waste your precious energy fighting those monsters. Simply take control and watch him disappear into nothing....
