By Step 12 of the practice, we have options. Options are like fuel. They generate hope. Here are a few delightful acronyms that came to mind one day while meditating on hope:
H.O.P.E. – Having Options Promotes Expansion
H.O.P.E. – Harnessing Enthusiasm Provides Evidence
Both are factual. We live in an abundant universe. As we expand our awareness, we realize that options abound and we are free to choose our next thought, our response to the very next experience, where we hang our hat, the music we listen to, the food we eat, the people we surround ourselves with. And we can choose to meditate. Within that choice there are so many wonderful options as well: where to meditate, how to meditate, how long to mediate for, how to focus within meditation, what aspect of the mind to bring forward in meditation, which meditative tool best suits the meditative moment best.
Each and every choice we make brings forward an aspect of our awareness. And the variety of these aspects are contained within the Central Channel. It holds the access to the full range of your experience.
Oh, and let’s not forget the second acronym: choose with enthusiasm. Always. We create our own reality. As we create with enthusiasm and intention… the universe responds with solid, in-color manifestations of our desires. It’s the law.
