Reviewing, reflecting and appreciating our choices

Explore the benefits in reviewing, reflecting and appreciating all our choices

Reviewing, reflecting and appreciating our choices

Do you ever review your life? If no, why? If yes, how?

Could there be benefits in reviewing, reflecting and appreciating all of the choices we have ever made? Could this stocktake support our foundation moving forward and support our overall mental wellness?

What if we approached this stocktake as an opportunity to review, reflect and appreciate ALL of our life choices and as such all our life outcomes … an opportunity to review our livingness.

Consider this quote:

"Everything we do, say and think counts.
Live like this, as you will receive what you invest back in the form it was deposited"

Serge Benhayon Esoteric Teachings & Revelations Volume II, ed 1, p 256

What if our ‘deposits’ are not merely what we deposit into the bank, rather our deposits include our every movement … everything we do, say and think equals a deposit into our life.

Thus the quality of all our deposits would contribute to the quality of all our investments, or otherwise said, the quality of our deposits will determine the quality of the end result.

As confronting as this might be to consider, we can see in daily examples how it is possible that our ‘deposits’ of what we do, say and think impacts on all our end results, such as:

  • The quality of our interactions with other people – determines the way others interact back with you

  • The quality of our relationships with our friends, family, partners, colleagues – EVERYONE – determines the depth of quality we have in each of these relationships

  • The quality of how we feel within and about our selves – determines the type of ‘self-talk’ that runs through our mind

  • The quality we put into our life – determines the many positive or sometimes negative situations or events that occur in life

  • The quality we put into our financial situation – determines if we have financial ease or financial stress

  • The quality of anything and everything we receive in our lives – determines our ability to truly appreciate, or if we create self-sabotage

  • The quality of our own mental health and own mental wellness – determines our capacity to truly cope and manage life’s challenges

Hence, is it possible that every moment of our lives matters … and thus our:

  • Every movement and all that we do (deposit) has an outcome (investment)

  • Every word spoken (deposit) has an outcome (investment)

  • Every thought (deposit) has an outcome (investment)

So as we take this time to reflect back over our past deposit choices, we can observe the quality of our investments we have chosen. Take the time to:

1. Review

  • Review the investments we do have
  • Ask – are each of my investments ones that support me and others?
  • Ask – what deposits have I made that have led to these investments?
  • Ask – what unwanted deposits shall I discard?
  • Ask – what deposits shall I continue?
  • Ask – what new deposits shall I introduce?

2. Appreciate

  • Appreciate the beauty of what is being shown. Even if you don’t like the investments (results) you are seeing (e.g. a damaged relationship, poor mental health or poor physical health) it is still a moment of appreciation to become aware of the ‘deposits’ (the quality of our choices) that created them … an opportunity to be honest and thus reflect and review all that you have deposited to then make change
  • Appreciate all of your own deposits and all of your own outcomes/investments … they are all a result of the choices you have made

So each day, week, month and year could we take an opportunity to consider all our investments, and reflect on ALL that we have deposited in all that we have done, said and thought as we reflect, review and appreciate all our investments that we have coming back towards us?
