We are born magical beings of the Universe. Children of the Most High.
The first line in Scott Peck’s best seller “The Road Less Traveled” is “Life is difficult.”
I think we might all agree with Dr. Peck’s assessment, that is, those who are being really honest about it all. No matter what one’s lot in life, our path is rife with potholes, hills, and valleys. It’s the way that we walk that path that matters in the end.
If something upsets us, it’s the way we handle the upset that counts, not the upset itself. We can’t possibly be placid and unaffected by everything that is thrown at us. If you can, then you don’t need to read any further. If any of us could do that, I sincerely believe we wouldn’t be on this plane to begin with.
There are, however, ways of thinking and looking at situations and people that give us a very good insight into what we are facing and how to handle and protect ourselves.
Unless we are born or otherwise rendered differently, we have 5 physical senses available to us. Sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste. It’s my goal to make people aware that all of those senses can serve us beyond the most gross level we normally use them on. Your eyes can see beyond what’s just in front of you, your ears hear beyond, you feel beyond, smell beyond and taste beyond.
Our senses are finely tuned and yet we use them mostly on a very unrefined level. I think we do that because we don’t have anyone to tell us any different. Our world is based on what’s right in front of us, what we can see, hear, taste, touch, and smell, right then and there. Even then, we are taught to question what we have seen, smelled, tasted, touched or heard. We get confused about what we know. We question ourselves in ways that don’t serve us.
Self-analysis on a level of doubt can be very destructive. We learn to take notes on academics, but we don’t learn to take notes on life, and life’s lessons. We learn to do research about school subjects, but not so much about life subjects. It shouldn’t be surprising when we come out of school and just don’t know what to do, or get caught up in something we hadn’t intended at all. And what about relationships??? YIKES! There are no classes in that.
We can’t do much about the fact that we don’t get any training in relationships, and life’s pitfalls. Few if any of our teachers along the way got that either, but we can find that information. It is inside every single one of us.
You were not plunked down in this life without the tools to handle what comes your way. Everything you need to walk your path in the highest way is within your grasp. As a matter of fact, it is inside you.
All of your senses are working overtime to give you the information you need in every single situation that comes to you. There is an answer to every question in the Universe. If you don’t have hold of that answer right now, that’s okay. It doesn’t mean the answer isn’t forthcoming.
Albert Einstein said, “The only real valuable thing is intuition.”
Cultivate your inner self. Just the action of it will bring others to you that are doing the same thing. Inside the circle that you will develop are people you can help and people that will help you. You will be with one another for life. It’s a support system you cannot buy and one that will bring you a sense of security and joy.
If Einstein was right (and he was right about a lot of things), then what are you doing to cultivate that “real valuable thing.” Start now. Don’t wait. Meditate, read, think, pour it on to a piece of paper…but start doing it now.
