I honor your path.
“I release any feelings of competition or comparison. I simply do my best and enjoy being me.”
In an infinite Universe there is plenty of room for many types of beliefs to co-exist. The ego, being the delightful teacher and creator of challenges that it is, will attach upon a particular idea and identify with it so strongly that we find ourselves forming a belief which needs to be defended.
Truth needs no defense. Gravity doesn’t care if one believes (or even understands) the law of gravity. It simply makes itself known in our lives, subtly holding us to earth, drawing things downward, adding weight and substance to our world of form.
As the many wonderful teachers today share their wisdom and teachings, some spiritual seekers, finding inconsistencies, become stuck, unsure of what is right and begin to become overwhelmed.
Your path of transformation is simply that – Your Path. The discovery of what sparks insight and passion for life is a very personal and unique journey. The only gauge of accurateness with which you should be concerned is how your life is flowing, how often you can access the stillness of the mind and how much respect and compassion you have for the paths of others.
I sometimes picture the earth as a K-12 school. The courses and lessons of a 12th grader will differ significantly from those of a kindergartner; however, all steps of learning are accurate and have value for the student. Sometimes this can be challenging, especially when the middle school kids (young souls) are just discovering their power, are overly filled with drama and usually quite vocal about their beliefs. The advanced soul, on some level, may remember what it was like to go through that period and quietly becomes the observer, allowing those who are younger to experiment and learn through experience.
Consider stepping outside of the stress in your life to create some quiet time and take stock of your beliefs. There may be some that you’ve outgrown, some that have expanded or you may discover new ideas that are calling to your spirit. No matter what you believe, the Universe will always provide the lesson material that is needed. The measure of success is the quiet confidence, peace and stillness that you feel in the face of opposition.
Today my intent is to observe the awakening occurring in those around me. I give myself permission to quiet the mind and enjoy the stillness of the present moment, to offer compassionate support and teach by example.
