We are all students, seekers of the truth.
Souls having a human experience.
We want to touch the Divine, understand the Vast Mystery, feel the Infinite flow through us.
We want to know what to do. Why we are here. What our great purpose is.
Spoiler Alert: The answer is within you.
The answer for each of us, and our way to discover it, is each as unique as we are.
There are so many paths to explore, so many places to search.
Rituals, signs, religions, soul-family, spirit guides, nature, priests, drums, shamans, crystals, butterflies.
We ask outside ourselves in every possible way.
And they answer.
Or do they?
If my answers are within me, and your answers are within you, those things outside of us can’t give us the answers.
Well, they can help.
We are rooted in this human body, anchored to this physical world.
We are constantly in touch with things that are outside of us – external cues and clues that form part of our experience.
The rest of that experience is internal – in the way we process those cues and clues and drink in their meaning.
The same way that seeing a large cloud might prompt us to reach for a sweater.
Or the rush of love we can feel when someone looks at us in just that way.
We experience our world, and ourselves, as a reflection of the world around us.
This reflection becomes whole and real as we internalize it and make it our own.
As we search, we find new things to receive.
Through these we find the way through the labyrinth of our own soul, tapping into and awakening the deepest of our inner knowing.
We open the way for the Vast Mystery to flow through us.
We touch the Divine.
It just may be a tarot card that shifts open our understanding.
Or a pendulum that guides our heart to see something a new way.
Or the words of a shaman that melt the icy blockage in our heart.
It could be anything. The touch of a butterfly, the roar of a river. A kind word, or a dire warning.
We are surrounded by the keys in every moment, beautifully visible to a still and open heart.
Where do you look for your answers? How do you find the way into your soul?
