As I shared in my last post I am following my bliss… Fun right? Thus far it has led me to reading and listening to a lot of great authors, buying beautiful sunflowers at our local farmer’s market, signing up for a yoga class and meeting a few new people. Now the real development from all of these seemingly small joys is a more constant feeling of contentment in the past week or so. It has allowed me to really start to remember what I like and what “lights my fire.”
As we mull through the obligations of life and get caught up in the rush, we seem to forget to experience the moment. We don’t see the beautiful day, the joy of our children or experience the feelings of gratitude we should for all our blessings. It’s as if the possibility of wholeness is always lurking in the back of the mind, taunting us with this feeling of separation, pushing you to be more, achieve more, have more ect.
Separation is the mind’s lie. The truth is in us at all times; living there, ready to be utilized. It is your talents and God given gifts. The separation is you taking on all the desires and promises of the outside world instead of taking on what you have been created to do. As you grow and experience life you begin to adopt outside perceptions and expectations of yourself as your own, losing site of what you desire. Stop and ask yourself how much of your life is driven by thoughts? Unnoticed, they have great power.
Try to follow your internal guide for a few days. My compass has always been the belief that if something is fluid and clear then I was on the on the right path, if I was struggling and felt like I didn’t know what to do then it was not the path I was meant to be on. Now, I am not saying that the right path is the easy path. I have been in situations where all I wanted to do was quit. It was hard and was killing my spirit, but I had a clear intuition to stay. It took a long time but I made it to the other side, and looking back would have done it no other way.
