Key Lesson

No day is better well spent than the one that leaves you with... change.

Summary

Your nature is not fixed. It can be transformed. This amazing quality, the inherent potential mutability of our nature, is what sets us above all of God's countless other creations. And this fact about our unique nature also empowers us in a very special way. Each of us is created with the power to choose the course of our own destiny.

But before you can change the course of and learn to design your destiny, you must first gain access to that secret place within yourself where your own future is being created moment by moment by moment.

This truly timeless place, where all your life choices are made for you, is what we understand, in concept, as the present moment. But this state of true now is not just an idea. It's a place of extraordinary and measureless power, for the true present moment is actually a cosmic seed of a sort from out of which springs all that comes later.

The present moment, where our being and our nature meet, is the instant of our destiny. And up until now, we've had little real choice in how our fates unfold because it's always been our nature -- our accumulated past with all of its fears, compulsions, and doubts -- that has been running the show.

Where your usual nature is often blinded by its own unseen self-interests, your true being, represented in the moment by your awareness of it, effortlessly sees into -- and through -- this unconsciously compromised thinking even as it's occurring. The presence of this higher intelligence keeps you from defeating yourself. And this is the same as making you newly victorious! For each time you have the awareness not to choose from that bank of old patterns produced by your limited thought nature, new and higher alternatives appear before your inner eyes. And with these directions as your guide, designing your destiny is as effortless as you are now confident. How can you not succeed when reality itself points your way!
