Thought Adjuster: “Will next year be the one in which you will finally remove every obstacle that prevents you from being your best – the highest and most perfected being you can aspire to be? Always, when a year ends, or when any of your human ‘cycles’ has completed, many of you take some time to consider the path traversed and where your efforts are leading you. For many, this is the only instant of introspection you have during the entire year. However, these disperse self-reflection moments cannot produce the same results that continuous self-observation could render.
You can compare these moments where you determine where your life is going to the efforts of an athlete to improve her performance. Consider which athlete would be more successful, the one who works on her technique and exercises once a year, or the one who practices daily and is making corrections or adjustments to the necessary parameters to improve at every moment?
The journey to perfection is a journey of continuous adjustments and constant self-evaluation. It is through your decisions that you build your destiny and take the necessary steps to achieve your eternal goal. Each minute you can choose between being the best you can imagine you can be, or avoid the efforts by choosing the path of least resistance. Each instant in your life you can choose to express love towards your peers, or pursue the satisfaction of your own material impulses. How can you determine the quality of the decisions you are making if you don’t stop for a moment to consider what you have done, or what you will do?
At the end of each cycle, at the moment you observe your life and where your decisions have brought you, know that these decisions and actions have not happened in a sudden manner, but they have been a slow process, distributed over a certain amount of time. Astute travelers do not make corrections to their path when they reach the wrong destination. An expert explorer would correct her course as she travels and will make the necessary adjustments to come as close as possible to the chosen destination.
Do not let the fact that you reached the wrong place be a surprise. Observe starting right now where you are walking to, where your desires, your illusions, and your decisions are leading you and, if you notice that you are walking in the wrong direction, then make the necessary changes and establish new goals that are more agreeable with the presence of the Father within you.”
