There comes a time in our life where we begin to question what we are meant to be doing, where we fit in the larger tapestry of life and what our purpose is.
During the isolating times of covid many have been re-evaluating their lives, reconsidering their direction and reviewing their results up to this point. Perhaps they are wondering if what they are doing is fulfilling. The result of their pondering is typically the same. It always seems to end with more questions than answers.
It is when we have more questions than answers is when our spiritual search truly begins. Who am I? What is my purpose in life? Am I on course? Is this what I was meant to do this lifetime? While this is how it starts, I have to tell you that you never stop asking questions. It is in the seeking that the path is unfolded and perpetuated.
Where to start?
Where does one search for clues if not answers? The first place people tend to turn to is Google and YouTube. There is lots of information found there, however, one must be discerning when it comes to what information should be retained or passed over. My rule of thumb is to take what resonates and leave the rest. It doesn’t mean what you leave behind is necessarily untrue. It can also mean that you are not in alignment with the information and in time you may grow into it. Any information that is disempowering or fearful should be immediately passed over. Remember, all the information from others is being filtered through the individual’s own belief structure and through their own impact and retained energy of their past experiences (i.e. emotional baggage). It is vital to know who YOU are in order to discern your own truths.
Remembering Who Are You?
You are a powerful, magnificent and beautiful energy being first and foremost. The rest is simply details. You have forgotten your true identity and the spiritually seeking journey is all about venturing back to ‘knowing’. It really is that simple! Nothing people ‘teach’ causes you to actually ‘learn’, it is more a gathering of knowledge. They are triggering the knowing within you. That’s all. Knowledge is the foundation you are compelled to gather. It is the acting and applying the knowledge in daily life that transmutes the knowledge into wisdom. It is wisdom that the soul carries lifetime to lifetime. This wisdom surfaces at the perfect moment. It feels like an epiphany. It feels like butterflies in your stomach. It feels like a truth. That is what you are searching for.
Much spiritual information and direction can be gleaned from books. Again, take what resonates with you. Some of the ‘starter’ books will introduce you, in layman’s terms, to the fact there is more than life to what you can see or discern with your five senses. Here are a few books that may be of assistance in that regard and some of my favourites:
- Illusions, The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah, Richard Bach
- The Celestine Prophecy, James Redfield
- Seat of the Soul, Gary Zukav
- Dancing Wu Li Masters, Gary Zuka
Classes And More
Classes and workshops that are geared to exploring ‘who you are’ are ideal. Without that inner knowing, the power – your power – is misused to a great degree as it is not unleashed deliberately. One must have certainty of what the power can do and that comes from embracing and knowing who you are.
When you begin to understand the vastness, the unlimited potentiality, then and only then will you direct the power as it was meant to be directed. You will then be in command of your very life. This, truly, is what the search is all about.
YOU have it all. It is in you already. It is more about understanding your authentic Self. There are many triggers along the path. Allow them to trigger the ancient wisdom from the depths of your soul. When you do – you will find yourself.
