My Life is Screaming at Me to …

Fall in love with the journey!

It’s all about the journey!

                                                                      

A couple of weeks ago during one of my SSM (spiritual staff meeting) which is another name I give my mindful meditation – Spirit clearly and loudly said, “Fall in love with the journey.” As I heard and received the message it brought tears to eyes instantly and filled my heart with desire, curiosity, and awe. Now here I am 3 weeks later still reflecting and contemplating my journey and viewing it through a new lens.

“I’m learning to trust the journey even when I do not understand it.” Mila Bron

Mila Bron’s quote helped me to not get stuck in the muck of trying to understand what my journey is all about. Like her I’m stepping out on trust and I’m invoking my faith and intuition. It is not my job or my responsibility to know all there is to know about my journey. And I don’t want to waste precious time and energy on analyzing or understanding my journey. After all; I don’t understand the way the Internet or my iPhone™ works but I use them and enjoy them every day.

“It’s all about the journey, not the outcome!” Carl Lewis

Taking Carl Lewis’ advice I am going to focus on my path not the destination. I am going to BE present for each rest stop, each road block, and each u-turn because they each offer a lesson, opportunity, or a detour to something bigger or better. I recognize that it is okay to make a u-turn, to follow the detour, or even ask for directions along my way. Delayed is not denied and rejection is the Universe simply sending me in a different direction.

“One cannot help but be in awe when one contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality.” Dr. Albert Einstein

So if I’m in agreement with Dr. Einstein and use his words as a blueprint for how and why to fall in love with this fantastic voyage; I will proudly use my imagination, intuition, and maintain my child like awe of the mysteries of the Universe so that I can stay in alignment with my soul’s assignment.

Each morning when I wake up and I choose to surrender my ego so I can embrace my path with gratitude, the day’s path will be revealed, the light of my path will glisten, and its shimmer will direct my day.

“Life is a journey not a destination.” Ralph W. Emerson

Be in the Now — celebrate every win, honor every loss because each one offers a chance to take another step forward. If I stumble I’ll just make it part of my dance as I dance as if no one is watching. I know that failure is part of the process; if I fail 10K times I must keep getting up and do it again and  again. “Do. Or do not. There is no try.” Yoda

Today I am truly grateful for everyone who has been a part of my soul’s odyssey this lifetime…

I’ve decided to not overload my Mind- Body – Spirit with worries about tomorrow’s issue because when I do, I often stagger and fall from the weight. Instead I’m going to raise my vibration with excitement, awe, curiosity, and action.  I will savor as many moments of joy as possible and then share my delight and joy with others. As I fall in love with this journey I will let my light shine and not blind.

Some things you’d never get to see if it wasn’t for that detour…. I’m learning hopefully, to just be where I’m at fully. Thanks for another cup of comfort!!!
