Upset Not Rule

When you CHOOSE LIFE you are choosing what you will agree with.  Your agreement is what opens doors in your life and the cocoon.  Your agreement aligns you with either a God-outcome or the plans of self or plans of others, or the plans of Hell . . . or possibly some combination of the last three!  For dv1954035example, if you’re caught up in an emotional web and surrounded by hurt feelings or offense or disappointment or despair, your soul is likely to choose to wallow in “UPSET.”  That choice is agreeing with current conditions, but your spirit calls for a vote, knowing nothing good comes out of coddling and rehearsing UPSET. There’s no ground taken by staying UPSET.  Let’s put it in graphic terms.  When your stomach gets UPSET, you throw up.  There’s no need to save the VOMIT.  Choose to FLUSH it and move on, thereby agreeing that you are not staying a prisoner of the UPSET.  Why do people ever choose to stay in the chaos of UPSET?   Most often, it is because they don’t feel or believe they can help it and they have no awareness that there is a choice to react differently.  Sometimes people get in a habit of staying upset because it brings attention or pity.  Others stay upset as a campaign for justice or vengeance. We can, however, train ourselves to use the weapon  called CHOICE and practice until we are skilled enough to choose not to allow UPSET to rule our lives.

able to buy back time that the locusts have eaten.”
