What is it that we seek?
Some of us want to know our mission on this planet; some of us simply want to be free of pain. Some want to recapture the essential joy they have known over time but find illusive in the moment.
It is hard to understand that complete knowing and flow exist simultaneously to what appears to be the density of everyday life. We find ourselves “up against” something rather than flowing with it. We want to feel whole.
We look outside ourselves for guidance, clearing, assistance, and knowledge. When we use these helpers as stepping-stones we are walking the path of our soul. When we become dependent on someone else’s word, approval, or sanction it is hard to find the true meaning of the moment or trust the wisdom that is our own.
Understanding that density is an illusion; allowing ourselves to realize that we have a choice in how our lives and emotions come to fruition; understanding that emotion follows thought, are all key to recapturing the flow of essential energy and attaining the release of old patterns.
Confusion sometimes arises when we are in touch with the calling of our soul and our soul potential and we find limitation in the physical form. The contrast seems so great between that which is eternally in our makeup and that which is transitory. For a time the transitory has more impact, but our unlimited essence is the truly powerful player.
Do we need assistance to learn the techniques and have the tools to proceed? Yes. Sometimes it will be mediation tapes; sometimes a teacher of mindfulness or holistic integration; sometimes counseling or therapy; sometimes yoga or art; sometimes the book that pops out at you at the library or bookstore.
