Tony - Sounds like you're having an amazing transformational experience. Thanks so much for sharing!
Everyone - I just wanted to clarify something here. We place events into our lives before we even incarnate. Then if we react (partial response), that re-creates a certain outcome and circumstances (i.e. typically similar situations keep getting attracted or re-created by us). When we respond - a full body-soul expression based in the present moment, unrehearsed, giving ourselves what we need - then that creates a different outcome and circumstances. We essentially let go of the past, including who we held ourselves to being in the past.
So it's not about whether we're in control of our lives (although no one has to be a victim), it's not even about whether we're expressing a certain emotion like happiness (because our emotions will change all the time), it's more about "how can I respond with ever greater levels of awareness and gratitude?"
What is your experience everyone?
