"The spiritual path - is simply the journey of living our lives. Everyone is on a spiritual path; most people just don't know it."
~ Marianne Williamson
Over recent weeks I have had some changes in my life. So big, some smaller, but changes none-the-less. As I have made my way through incorporating these changes into my life, I have become aware that I have been letting something very important slowly slip by me.
I consider myself a spiritual person. My spirituality is based solely within myself. I don’t follow any particular doctrine or any formal beliefs, but I am always on a journey of self discovery. My spiritual journey is one of many ebbs and flows. Sometimes I am deeply involved in learning about myself and the Universe, and sometimes I am not as intimately involved.
Lately I have found myself less involved in my spiritual journey than normal. I have allowed myself to become very busy with the business of life, that I have neglected my spiritual side, even though I know, at least at an intellectual level, that the spiritual part of me is where life actually resides.
Rather than being disappointed in myself, I have just allowed myself to notice this. I cannot change what has happened, and so, there is no reason to feel badly, or chastise myself for neglecting something so important. All I can do from here is to reset my intention, and move forward.
I intend to renew my spiritual journey. I will continue my self discovery with renewed vigor. I will allow myself the time to study, to reflect, and to get quiet with myself. Everything is exactly as it should be. I am on my path, and it is taking me to the perfect place, and putting me in the perfect circumstances, with the perfect people, all in perfect timing.
I love the journey I am on in my life. I love to experience things fully. I love to dream big dreams; I love to live out loud.
Yes, it is time to renew my journey, and I know that it will take me where I need, want, and intend to go. I know that it is not the destination that is important, but the journey. I understand that the path up the mountain does not just lead to the top, but to every point along that path.
