Greetings Creator, want to play a word game with me? Good, the Word of The Day is CONTRAST. This word, along with Allow, Alignment, and Vortex, is one of the most predominant in our Teachings of Abraham Lexicon. No matter how Abe tries to spin it, Contrast just seems to invoke a negative connotation, e.g, “I had some whopping Contrast today, but I made it through in one piece.” LOL!
This feeling of resistance lead me to dig a little deeper into the etymology of Contrast and I found that it’s roots are Latin, contra = ‘against’ + stare ‘stand.’ Hmmm. Not exactly uplifting.
My next stop was to check into synonyms that one might use in it’s place, and here’s the first 4 that popped up:
CONTRAST = comparison, contradiction, disagreement, disparity.
While they are all not completely negative, CONTRAST and her sister words, don’t engender a feeling of fun or ease. So it feels like it’s time for an upgrade. Why not turn this whole action of Contrast around by substituting a word that feels more uplifting? My favorite? CHOICE!!!! And here are some synonyms that go with my NEW Word of The Day:
CHOICE = alternative, decision, election, favorite, opportunity, option, preference, variety!
Don’t these words feel better, freer, more expansive, fun? They actually spell out what it is we’re doing here as Deliberate Creators:
“Each moment, of each hour, of each day we are shown oodles of ALTERNATIVES, in order that we might make our highest and best DECISIONS, by ELECTING our FAVORITE CHOICE, giving us tons of OPPORTUNITIES and OPTIONS to streamline our PREFERENCES through the offering of VARIETY!”
Wow! Now THAT feels really, really good to me. The Universe is constantly offering us CHOICES and when I think of it like that, there is NEVER a downside. Contrast on the other hand, has a bit of resistance attached and I believe keeps us turning toward what we don’t want longer than suits us.
Without further ado, I would like to introduce you to my Universal Shop Keeper, Ibrahim. He delights in showing me choices, variety, options. His sole job is to present me with opportunities, so that I may CHOOSE what are the highest and best DECISIONS for me.
In the morning, even before I open my eyes, I can feel him nudging me awake with these words, “Creatrix, I have a whole new marketplace of variety to show you today. Won’t you get up now so that I can surprise and delight you?”
Here I come Ibrahim…. Can’t jump out of bed fast enough to sift and sort my way through the unending, expansive, creative choices The Universe is offering up FOR ME!
Genius Creator, want to meet me at the nearest Bazaar? We will shop til we drop, touching all the fabulous fabrics, smelling the spices, sipping the coffee, rolling about on the sumptuous carpets. Won’t it just be too much? Yes, indeed. That’s what a life of Choice does for you~*
