Programmed For Joy
By Beca Lewis
Most of the time I stand on my feet, or at least my head is pointing upOnce in a while, using a nifty piece of gym equipment, I stand on my shoulders, and my head is pointing down.
Every time I do this I am amazed at how heavy I am, and how little time I can stand the feeling of gravity pulling at me. Yet, when I stand the “normal” way I don’t feel gravity at all. I am used to the influence of gravity pulling me down.
For about a week we couldn’t get on the Internet on one of our computers at our home office. I called the provider and they couldn’t fix it. They said there was something wrong with our wireless card, but when we visited our daughter in California my computer worked fine. Having eliminated that possibility, I tried the company again. “No,” they said. It was still something wrong with your computer.
However, that time I had a different perception. I knew it wasn’t true. It was then that I noticed something that neither the technician nor I had noticed before. The computer was connecting to a router that wasn’t the one in our home office.
It turned out our downstairs neighbor had just gotten his own router, which confused our computer. I switched to the correct router and immediately we connected.
A few weeks later we were watching a prerecorded show on the DVR and our TV started acting crazy. The program would switch off, switch on, or rewind without our doing anything. Del fiddled with the remote until it appeared to work, but as soon as we got settled in, the wild things would begin again.
We tried switching batteries, restarting the TV, yet nothing worked. Finally I called our service.
Are you ahead of me here in this story? Yes, you are correct. Our downstairs neighbor had gotten a DVR, and our remotes were programmed exactly the same. He was controlling our TV.
All it took was a simple reprogramming of our remote to be back in control.
All three of these stories are symbols of the same question; what, and whom, is influencing and affecting our lives and in what manner? .
Habitually going about our daily living we don’t realize how much of each moment we are pulled into the rhythm of others. We fall into their pattern of behavior, beliefs and thoughts.
We accept what they say to be true. We “connect” to life their way. It’s only when things don’t work, or get too bad, that we may step outside of that rhythm and say “what’s wrong here,” and then try to stop it.
Others easily disrupt our connection to Truth. Yet it is our connection to completeness, order, omnipresent Love, unlimited supply, and intelligent activity of Mind that “delivers” to each of us the life of wealth that has already been provided.
Being pulled down by the influence of others, or connecting through their router, or letting our lives be directed through their remote is at the least not necessary, and at the most, imperative to stop.
Instead of waiting until things don’t work perhaps we could pause each day and check out our connection.
Are you connected to the finite limited worldview or to the Infinite? In case you’re not sure, here’s an easy test.
Are you thinking and feeling thoughts that are bringing you and others happiness and joy? Great, your connection is to the Infinite. If not, then choose to make that switch now.
Don’t put up with a downward influence and inadequate connection anymoreChoose Infinite joy: you are already programmed to receive it, so receive it now.
