Who’s in The Drivers Seat of Your Life

As adults we often assume we are in the drivers seat of our lives.  Is this really true?  Its been my experience that peoples lives are ruled by their unhealed wounds.  The woundings we gather through life continue to have an emotional charge to them.  This charge causes people to react, avoid and create chaos in their personal and professional life.  It is important that these wounds are addressed so the charge can be removed and they are no longer in the drivers seat.  I had the great privlidge to work with a great group of people last week at “The Path Intensive”  to take back control of their lives.  One of the participants stated “when people are tired of being in pain and they are lucky enough they can give them the gift of doing this intensive!”

“AT WHAT COST?”  Joy Is Dependent on Integrity

How an individual behaves when no one is looking is a measure of a person’s integrity.  Our moral compass tells us what is acceptable behavior for us.  Sometimes it is tempting to see “What can I get away with when no one is looking?”  Often the answer to that question is “I can get away with doing this and no one will know.” It is always helpful to ask yourself “AT WHAT COST?”  “What will the choice cost me or another person.”  People who live in a state of joy often are mindful of the impact of their choices.  Content, Joyful people’s mindset is “What can I contribute to this community, event, relationship etc.”  rather than “What can I get out of this community, event, relationship?”
