Your life’s path
There are times when we all question where we are and what we are doing here. Why am I in this job, how did I come to this place. I have often felt that when things are going well I must be on the right path. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. It felt great, things were going so well and yet it was the wrong thing to do. That doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy the ride but when the ride ends badly you have to wonder was it worth it.
I am a reluctant Shaman, I didn’t really choose this path on my own. Spirit made that choice for me. Some would call it fate, or a calling. Having a blessed life is good, I know this is what I am supposed to do. Though my path changes all the time. These days I am learning about CBD oil and healing the body with earth medicine. It’s a long way from the IT world of computers I had chosen myself.
Did you know that when you hear, read or see something profoundly true, even though unbelievable, you get a tingle down your spine? Because the truth resonates within you and gives you a sign you heard something true, and real. There are many people who cross our paths that will try to tell you how to live your life. Yours is the only opinion that counts on how you walk your life’s path. If what they tell you doesn’t resonate with you then don’t follow their advice. If you’re not seeing your path clearly then most likely there are some who are imposing control over you masked as concern for your welfare.
We were given this life to walk as we choose. If you want to be a follower that is a choice you made. If you want to be a leader then that also is a choice you made. Sometimes those choices seem like the best thing to do at the time. The only option of taking control of a situation or letting yourself be led out of one. I have always questioned authority. Willing to listen to a different view point, a better idea, or just find out how crazy that person really is.
What motivates people to control us? Power, money, sex, domination, self-esteem, the list goes on and on. Control is an illusion, we can never control everything. When control is lost people call those accidents, or incidents, or events. The only thing we can control most of the time is how we react to a situation.
A personal code. At some point, most of us have decided that following the rules of society is a good thing. Don’t kill, don’t be a thief, don’t tell lies, don’t make trouble, try and get along, go to work, follow the laws. That’s a great idea until your value system is violated. You’re a good person yet bad things happen to you. Granted sometimes we are stupid and do stupid things so terrible things happen to us. We keep picking a type of person that isn’t good for us. People that use us, hurt us, and abandon us. We even protect them from our friends who warn us about what they see and what they know. You find out who you really are when your personal code is violated.
We truly find out who our real friends are when things go wrong. Those who stand by us and say I can help. Usually those people don’t judge us, they are concerned for us and after we are safe and out of trouble say things like. Stop doing those not smart things please! If you are lucky enough to have a person like that be good to them they are rare.
Make a decision that you can live with. Be responsible, remain in your personal code if you can, be honest with yourself, try and understand what is the real reason you’re here. Once we find our goal in life and make a commitment to that goal, the universe, god, great spirit, divine energy steps in. Everything we do form then on gets a closer to that goal. We are all works in progress learning all the time. Don’t let ignorance stop you, learn more about it, be aggressive in your own pursuit of your goal.
May we all be blessed with knowing who we are. May we all learn from our mistakes and turn those experiences into wisdom.
