The passage of time seems so irrelevant today. Yesterday passed without me getting very much accomplished. Does it matter in the greater scheme of things? No. And yet, here I am facing another day, wondering what to do to make it feel like something and not for naught.
The way home is not through external doors or pathways. It is not found in material things, or in people or food and drink, or herbal substances or physical experiences. It is said that home is where the heart is and as humans, we think of this as where our loved ones are. In reality, the home of our heart is within us, where it has been all along, waiting for us to recognize it for what it is.
The way home is through our own heart. The love we seek is within all of us. We discover it by moving out of our mind and into our heart center where love resides in peace and harmony. The allure of the material world is strong and is there to keep us from reaching for the love we believe is possible. And because all our lives we have been taught to look for everything we think we need outside of ourselves; we seldom find what we truly desire – a love the sustains us through all difficulties, all pain and misunderstandings, all that we experience in the search for what we truly need, a connection with our Creator.
Material objects might keep us comfortable physically, but the spiritual life keeps us safe and loved through all distractions and struggles we experience as we try to navigate being a soul in a human body. We innately know the way home, the way to the unconditional love we are worthy of as a child of Divine Creator. And Spirit will guide us if we will just allow it.
Only when we cease our struggle for the ‘good life’, for the desirable comfort of physical things can we attain peace, harmony and the understanding that we are all just spirits experiencing life as humans on planet Earth. With understanding comes awareness of our true nature. And it is in that inner-standing, that we will ultimately find what we seek, our true self and the love we know is ours, forever and ever.
It has taken me most of my life to reach this inner-standing of the truth of my reality. The wisdom I have gained through struggle, hardship and heartbreak has guided me to my true self and the happiness therein. Once I became aware that there is so much more than just being human on this planet, I began to work diligently to raise my knowledge and vibration to a higher level. I opened up to unseen yet very real guidance so I could grow as a spiritual being.
It hasn’t been an easy journey, this return to the truth of me. Six intense years of healing and dealing with all the mind-control of this world and doing my best to live a more spiritual life, I am well on my way. So many dark nights of the soul, crying in the darkness at 2:00am, wondering if I was going to survive the destruction of the self I had known only to blossom into a more loving and kinder human being.
I am saying that all I have been through, relearning who I am and creating this amazing being in my image, I am happier than I have ever been. I have been shown who I am and how much I am loved by the unseen guides and watchers of my life. And I know that for each healed part of me, it opens a pathway for another soul to be healed and another and another. I know that every time I send out loving energy to parts of the world that need it, it is received and accepted.
I know that I matter. I know that I am loved by a Source that has always loved me and will never abandon me. I am worthy of the inner power I have earned and that with that power, even greater responsibility accompanies it. The courage I needed to get to where I now stand, has brought to me integrity and honor. I will never forsake myself again.
I share my story so that someone just like you, may find the courage to grow into who you truly are, loved and guided by a higher presence who only wants the best for you.
I believe in you.
