My heart continues to explore itself, sometimes reluctantly, sometimes thirstily, sometimes with a longing that seems to come from beyond me that wants to lead me beyond me . . .
My “travels” have taken me through many beliefs and drawn me to accept that ALL is orchestrated by a largely unrecognized force desiring to reveal TRUTH to my innermost parts – to prepare my caterpillar perception for the realization of its butterfly reality . . . an inconceivable beauty far exceeding my ability to imagine and the true essence of FREE displayed within its color and being . . .
REAL . . . it is vital in this time of loud voices yelling “fake news” when they don’t agree with what it says and “alternative facts” as a way to justify their version of “real” that I understand REAL – anyone can create their own reality show on a daily basis complete with drama and drawing others into their plots, but I can choose not to live in someone else’s “reality show” and can choose to look to GOD, the only source of REAL without question . . . not an easy choice, but one I need to prayerfully consider . . . every day.
So, how do I avoid creating my own reality show and allow the path to teach me, to open the eyes of my heart, to draw me to a level of “real” that stretches me while planting seeds of Truth within my heart?
Sitting in a place of thankfulness is, perhaps, a good place to start. To be thankful on the path while not being thankful for everything that has brought me to this place and time (which quantum mechanics tell me do not exist except as “markers” I need, so will they disappear as my need for them decreases).
Next, perhaps, is the acceptance of a Higher Power, a force outside myself yet inside of my very being while being my very being which directs my path so my heart is gradually opened to “real” without demanding to understand.
