We Know when We Are Being Guided in the Right Direction.
Many of us are following a Sacred Path these days. It is a beautiful thing, indeed. There are also many of us who hear the call and Know that there is a way that must be followed so as to get to the next level of thinking and Being, but unfortunately there are many of us who would prefer to not be Guided in our lives.
We all need some sort of Guidance. We all need to know that where we are headed is somehow the right way to go, to follow, and most of the time we can gauge that correctness simply by going within, thinking a thought and paying attention to the way our physical selves feel. We know that if we are going in the ‘other than right’ way that we will be Guided by Spirit through means of our bodies. This is not my rule and not my discovery, but is something that has just always been the truth.
We deny our gut instinct, deny the feeling within us that tells us that yes, we should continue in the manner we started out with or no, go another way. Then we make up excuses as to the reason why we would chose to go against the Guidance of what we were “told.” When we are “told” and we feel the gut instinct gives us a heavy and weighted feeling and we choose to go with the thing that our physical self even knows is not the right way to go or perhaps is the way that we have traveled already and have learned the lesson given us by that one way we find out that even as the lesson has been learned, when we chose to return to that one way, the response bodily is always one that not only feels good but IS good, and we know it.
We Know it on every level, from the cellular level to the ethereal level. We are well aware that when we are doing right, we are being told by our Higher Power that yes, this is the right way, and that yes, the longer we stay the course we are guaranteed that there is no other way, that the way we have chosen IS the only way to go if we do not want to hit anymore unneeded snags along the Path.
When Love is the only mission, our Path is direct, cannot be anything but perfect, even as imperfect as it might seem to us. While we cannot see the end result, we are privy to hints and higher guidance if we are also willing to see to it that we are in line with our Purpose, that our thoughts are pure and our intentions set with only the highest honor that we can give to anyone else – the very depth of Aloha which is so inherent a part of the grander scheme of things, of life, and that in and of itself are gifts which cannot be matched for any reason or compared to anything at all.
When we do things from the highest senses that we have, and when we can, without effort, also include others who travel along the same Path as we are, and when we can see to it that what they offer to us is as needed by us as is what we have to offer to them, this is when what seemed like a difficult journey has become more of an adventure than something that we have to be fearful about. When speaking in terms of the Soul, the only thing that we have to fear is not what might happen, but more, what we prevent from happening because we are choosing to be Guided by what the Ego says is correct and not the way that our Soul is begging us to go in.
Think, yes, but also feel. Feel your way into the future, into the place where you are meant to be. Know that Your Path is not only Divinely Timed and Planned, but more, Divinely Guided.
When was the last time you chose to be Guided rather than chose to Be Led?
Kind of makes it a lot different when you think of it in those terms, doesn’t it? When we are Guided by Spirit, even though it might be the scenic route, it is still a beautiful excursion. However, when we remain following another’s lead, and we are choosing to be led, we are not following the inclinations of the Soul but rather and only the Ego, for it is the Ego which will question our Spirit’s motives. The Spirit within us all Knows that we must be Guided.
Well, that part of us is seen by the world as it is, so you have to think about the idea of what a gorgeous thing it would be if the Ego, instead of it believing that it has to follow the Soul could believe that it and the Soul work in tandem.
This means that it is simply time for us to train the Ego to be One with the whims of the Soul, don’t you think?
Yep…I thought so, too !!
I LOVE YOU ALL !!
