Have you ever wondered about life? I do all the time, who am I really? Where do I fit in with “Life” or am I just a bystander observing it happening all around me, wanting ot participate but not knowing how. These questions can’t be answered clarly without looking within and knowing self. It seems to me that over the years we develop without realizing and lose sight of who we are as a being. We need to revisit ourselves in order to get to know this person, who you are, again. Who in all honesty can put their hands up and say they know who they really are, without the introspection?
Life is a journey, a journey which we never know where or when the end is, we neer know if we are on the right road even to get to this unknown place, we never know if we have all the resources to continue this journey to the end, or eve if we will recognise when we get there that we have arrived! We never know if we should pick up hitchikers along the way, we never know if we need to rely on someone else for help on the journey because we have “had a breakdown”. It seems to be a lack of control is required to take this journey and a whole lot of faith that we will make it to where we are going.
Some will get lost on the journey and go around in circles oblivious to what is happening. Some will make a choice on which path to take that will lead them into alife which they are unprepared for, some will seem to know in their heart which way to go and find themselves enjoying the journey. some will be so focused on getting to the end of the joureny that they fail to experience the actual journey. Some have high expectations on what to expect and are disapponted with their journey.
Which one are you? Do you think we can change along the joyrney to help things along? Yes I believe so but only once we know ourselves and then we can make a decision that we know is right for us. it resonates in the mind, the heart and the soul.
the mind analysis the information and comes to a logical decision. It makes sense to your mind. the heart comes to an emotional decision. It feels right in your heart. The soul is wise and sees past the logic and the emotional to the furture growth of itself. Do you think this is the: me, myself and I concept that is bandied around?
so how do you suppose we approach these areas to get our answer? The easiest one ot start with is the mind. We use it everyday and therefore it is the one we are most familiar with. We just haven’t asked it the right questions in a long time. Write down the questions you have in relation to your journey. Get to know your mind and how it works for you. You need to be still and most importantly to listen. Really listen to what your mind has to say, probe it, examine it, and see how you feel about what it has to say. Does it resonate in your heart and soul? If the answer is yea you are on the right track.
How you feel, already the heart is getting involved in your questt. The emotional part of you is opening up when you question your mind. How do you feel about this? so the logic and emotional are entwined. The sould? Ah the hardest and yet probably the simplest one to know. We chose I believe to go through life ignoring this part of us. Patiently it waits for us to nbitice it. There is no anger, no frustration, just a patience knowing that the right time will come and it needs to be prepared for its answers. When you are ready for the soul, it has been ready for you your whole life. It answers your qustions patiently and the answers fill your body,mind and heart and yes beyond to the encompass your whole life.
Are you ready? The soul is larger than you, it expands ever outwards with you as the epicenter around which it revolves. Its energy reaches out and affets othes on their own journeys, some stop and exchange learnin with you, others continue busily on their journey no time to stop. All make a change to you and your journey.
Getting to you know yourself, allows you to see your journey, have you make a wrong turn and want to get back to a direction that feels like the right way? Now the going can get tough, you might have changed on the inside but that doesn’t mean your life has changed elsewhere, are you prepared to amke the changes that need to be made. People will be hurt, friends will be lost, lifestyle will change. Is it worth it? Maybe the question is can you continue to live this life without being true to yourself?
I wrote this a few years ago now, when I was struggling emotionally. I tend to overanalyse everything I do to such a point that I end up doing nothing! Have I taken life too seriously, how do you see “life” as?
