The more that I learn about how God works in our lives, the more I realize how much we need to Un-Learn.
If we have not been focused on any religious or spiritual teaching, we are subject to confusion, ego and being lost in the world of form. Nothing fits and we are constantly looking for the reason why. We get worn down, discouraged, angry, disillusioned and feel hopeless.
If you are experiencing any of the above consistently you may want to consider that you are off course. Without a doubt that can be rerouted. It is very similar to driving and finding out you took a wrong turn and need to get back on track. Interestingly now with GPS we have a tool that helps us to stay on course.
Why do we think we can stay on our Spiritual course without tools? I know I did just that for many years. Muddled along on my own and had no clue as to why I was so lost and miserable. Then I got into New Age and Metaphysical teachings and tools. They began to give me an idea of a different way of living. After a time I realized that they were not enough. They definitely give us another way of looking at life and that does plant seeds. After that we need more.
Then it is time to find your spiritual path. The one that leads you to a relationship or connection to God, or whatever word you use for All That Is. The word does not matter. What does matter is that when those feelings of confusion and overwhelm come up, you have a place to go within that brings you peace. If you ask Spirit you will be led to the right path for you. It is important to know that when you find your path, if it is not the one your Soul wants you to be on, know that God will lead you to the next step with ease and love. There are not mistakes. You will take what you learned and move on in Grace.
If you are in any way dependent on any individual or teacher, know that this is okay for a short period. Any mentor or teacher who has integrity guides you to find the answers within, and does not create a co-dependent relationship.
Wishing you many blessings on your path to peace and joy!
