The quest for a more rich, fulfilled life must start from where you are. To rush to heights you are not ready for will only cause a fall to a level that is more uncomfortable than the one you are on now. How can you reach higher than your arm will allow you? How can you climb the ladder if you keep skipping a rung. One step at a time will take you to your goals, your dreams, to your truth.
Those on a spiritual quest, a search for inner truth and meaning, may
feel a need to go beyond their awareness and therefore, rush what is to
be learned. You cannot learn what you are not aware of. To
clear your way means, in part, to clear away the issues and emotions and
beliefs that keep you from experiencing the true happiness and peace that
is truly yours and within you at all times. When hard times hit you,
you may retreat, withdraw, thinking and believing that you are not
as far along your evolutionary quest as you had thought. You may
feel that you are taking a step backwards and not progressing at all.
In reality, these lessons come forth, to show you what is stopping or blocking
you so that you may go on with your quest, and growth. How can you
go beyond what you cannot see? How can you let go of what you do not know
you are holding on to? This can be as simple as a
Let us look at relationships. You are striving for that wonderful
connection of the physical, spiritual, and mental, but you find you
are still alone. All your relationships seem to end in despair.
They start out hopeful and filled with excitement, but end with a feeling
of loss and rejection. You may feel like the victim, or you may think,
I pull in the wrong people all
We have a choice at this point. We can feel the victim, or we
can truly learn that we create our own reality, and become the Co-creators
of our life, with the power to manifest what we know we deserve.
For truly, that is what we do, we create the reality that we believe we
deserve. If we believe we are "stupid", or "fat" or not "good enough"
to love, then that is what we will attract. We have within us all
the resources we need to learn where our
Is this path an easy path? At times it may seem as the most difficult
one to follow. Is it one that you chose for this lifetime? Only you
know the answer. We are all here with a mission, and what is more
wondrous than finding your unique inner truth, your inner unconditional
love, your inner peace. Once on that path, all else in your life
will follow. For once you
But you must begin from where you are. Allow yourself to feel the grief, the pain, and allow it to show you where you are coming from. From this point, you may find within yourself the forgiveness that is needed to move on. Forgiveness, in the sense of letting go, and freeing you from the experience and patterns that brought this occurrence to you.
One step at a time, one experience at a time, one lesson at a time. Step by step we learn more about ourselves and the lives we have created. Step by step we can learn to honor and love all that is drawn to us. I believe the key is patience and forgiveness, for if we didn't have these experience we could not learn, although it may feel far from that at the time.
Finding inner core issues and beliefs, and the energy they attract takes time and love and patience. At times, the journey may seem hard and too difficult, but the rewards at the end of the tunnel are freedom, love and peace, to name a few. And the knowledge that the experience has brought, and the drama and pain that came with it are needed no longer. This is the beginning to the end of painful patterns or cycles in our life, that are released forever. For the "lesson" is learned and the inner truth can shine through. Clearing the way to more learning and understanding, and the lighter, clearer life you truly do deserve.
