“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”
Viktor E. Frankl
One of my favorite truths so beautifully stated.
Often we think who we are is, who we are, that we are in human form and change is not an option.
Clearly that is an illusion.
For there is indeed a space between all stimulus and response and in that space our higher consciousness gets to slip in.
Daily life gives us lots of opportunity to make choices based on immediate “wants” rather then on our “higher knowing”. How many times in a moment of quick, emotional heat have you lashed out at someone? Do you buy things impulsively? How often do you in a sudden moment break a promise to yourself?
How free did you feel after each experience?
When we choose to live our daily life from our higher consciousness, we work with the space between stimulus and response.
