Here is the definition of Habit from Dr. Joe Dispenza. “A habit is a redundant, automatic, unconscious sets of thoughts, behaviors, and emotions that develop through repetition.
“It is when you have done something so many time that your body is programmed to become the mind.
“Over time your body is dragging you toward a predictable future. One that models the past, based on your actions in the past. Therefore, if you are not in the present moment, you are probably in a program.”
The more we continue to live on the way we have always done, not being present but just stuck thinking and thinking about the past and the future, we will continue to get what we have always gotten.
We are looking to change habit energy. There is a story in Zen Circles about a man and a horse.
The horse galloping along very quickly and it appears that the man on the horse is going somewhere important. A man standing alongside the road, shouts, “Where are you going?” The man on the horse yells back and said “I don’t know, ask the horse.”
We are like this man. We may be riding this horse, or the habits of our daily life and we don’t know where we are going, and we can’t stop. And the horse is our habits, pulling us along, without realization. We ride these habits daily, not thinking that they will lead us anywhere.
Mindfulness is recognizing these habits, and recognizing that they are a huge part of our momentum each day and channeling them in the direction of our success.
We are what we repeatedly do. What do you want to be? Start with the healthy habits that shape our reality. The large effort will reap even larger rewards.
The key to success is in what you do every moment. Change your habits. One goal at a time. What does it look like to achieve your dreams? What does it look like each moment of every day? Start there.
