There are many paths to enlightenment. Immerse yourself in one that is profound and playful, something that calls to your soul. No matter how you choose to explore, be guided by love. It’s easy to get sidetracked, to set aside the spiritual side of life thinking that there is no time to seek enlightenment while working, raising a family or chasing a dream; however, when you are balanced, spirituality is naturally infused into every aspect of your life.
For the awakening master, work becomes the field through which enlightenment emerges. Family provides an opportunity to see love in action. Inspiration comes into being through art, music, cooking, creating.
The call of spirit is all around you. Life is merely the playground in which consciousness experiences itself in physical form. This is why it’s important to release criticism, blaming, judgment (all products of the egoic mind) and approach the present moment from the highest aspect of consciousness that you can. This practice is transformative, not only for yourself but for all of those who grace your life.
