Chapter 10: Taking Responsibility For Your Destiny
You Have Chosen to Remember: A Journey of Self-Awareness, Peace of Mind and Joy by James Blanchard Cisneros.
When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life in such a manner that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice.
– Indian Proverb
My friend, regardless of the physical manifestation, you currently have what you want in your life. You are experiencing what you want to experience. And you are reacting to your experience the way you want to react. To some, this is a difficult concept to accept. My friend, take responsibility for your destiny. You have a great deal more control over your life than your ego will allow you to acknowledge.
The greatest gift you can offer yourself and others is having your own life work. Do not concern yourself with comparing yourself to your brother or sister, for that is one of the ego’s traps. Instead, go inward and compare your life to that of your highest will. It is this one and only comparison that will make the greatest difference in your life. Compare the life you have with the life you want. Compare the life you have with the life that will bring you the most love, peace of mind and joy. My brother and sister, stop, be still, and in the moment, in the now, review your current life and compare it to the life you truly desire. Do this and you will start taking responsibility for your destiny. For it is in the now where your destiny is created, and it is in the now that you offer yourself the clarity you need to fulfill your dreams.
