Most of us, myself included, are ignorant of the greatest mechanism in existence, the brain of man. Now the fog is beginning to lift. Now it’s time to take this to the next level. It’s time to develop my brain to do things that I had not dreamed possible. The results will depend upon my understanding of the mechanism which is within my control. This new understanding that through the power of attention I will be able to overcome obstacles of any kind that appear in my path to move onward and upward has increased my desire and determination to practice harder and continue to practice as practice makes perfect.
I have a lot going on right now, as does everyone at this time of year. However, the quality of our lives is directly proportional to the amount of uncertainty we can comfortably tolerate. I certainly feel tested right now. In the past I have been swept away by the mechanics of it all, getting bogged down with stress of external circumstances.
Ultimately each one of us must fulfill our spiritual calling back to self. When we make this great discovery, things on the material plane flow easily and effortlessly regardless of the external frantic things that try to capture our attention and control our life.
The promise of connection to Source and self is the promise of freedom and abundance in all areas of our lives. The important thing is that we are faced in that direction and moving towards that goal regardless of the challenges in our daily routine.
The responsibility is 100% ours to stay focused on this connection to the within. We cannot pass go and collect a payout. We won’t get there by joining a religious organization or a group of some sort. Sure these may well be stepping stones along the way, but the true realization is our direct personal connection to Source. A connection that is free of dogma, bureaucracy, fear and manipulation.
I have always had this spiritual companion on my shoulder, calling me to find the way to my own way. For most of my life I felt this inner urge but ignored it, and like many others before me, I bought into the external world and its material promises.
It’s when we ignore our inner callings that we move into living inauthentic lives. This is why so many people gravitate to coping mechanisms. They are attempting to numb themselves from authentic calling. In effect we feel the calling but we intentionally move in the wrong direction.
Each one of us is called to realize our potential.
Each one of us is being called to raise our levels of consciousness.
Changing external conditions that leave our inner world’s unchanged will never bring about the security and happiness we seek.
The more we connect to our inner self, the less our external demands challenge us.
