The dawning of your awareness begins within as a small but undeniable sense or feeling that there is more to life than meets the eye. Regardless the attention you pay to this feeling, it does not leave you. It does not go away. Just as the sun dawns each day and is unstoppable, this feeling persists within you as an irrepressible wanting for knowledge, understanding, wisdom. As with the sunrise, many days it is blocked by clouds or fog, but you know the sun is there. You see it’s light and feel it’s warmth which you never doubt. The same sense holds true for your awareness. Learn never to doubt it’s existence nor it’s power to illumine your path and warm your life.
Goals, ambitions, dreams are fun and in many ways entertaining. However as you work toward achieving your specific goals, worry not about having a specific method or path to your accomplishment. There are many paths to the same goal and all to often our focus on the goal becomes a distraction from life and living. The many paths to your goal can make form some interesting travel companions.
All endeavors great and small have the potential to lead to accomplishing the lessons you came to learn, comprehend and understand this lifetime. It’s your ability to be present in this moment to see things as they are and recognizing your best next step, then taking that step with knowing that is this awareness that we’re learning. Take a moment and let that sink into your consciousness. There are no spiritual things, only things done spiritually. There are no spiritual people, only people acting with spiritual intent. There is no spiritual formula, only enjoying the present, aware of where you are and pondering what’s next.
#SpiritShorts: Today’s message is from Nathanial:
Each sunrise begins a new day. Do you start each day newly? Terry’s teacher Gene was fond of saying the only difference between a rut and a grave is a matter of depth. Which when combined with the adage the many people have one foot is the grave and the other on a banana peel provides some interesting images about the state of affairs for many people. The other extreme being so-called adrenaline junkies who engage in extreme behaviors to feel alive. Somewhere between the grave and jumping out of planes lies a middle path which when walked with awareness, and knowing can be quite a Spiritual Adventure.
