We are about to explore things that rhyme with life. Is life ours to create however we desire? The answer is yes, however we do need to shed our skins, just like a snake. Another analogy, is to peel off the layers of an onion. Let’s make a start.
THE TRUE RHYTHM OF LIFE
How do we find our passionate life purpose. I read somewhere recently that when people are on their death beds they often express they wish they had found their life purpose. I found this intriguing as we all seem to know that we were born with a life purpose. Our egos develop with incorrect information being fed to us from a very young age and take charge of us. We lose our power and our true identity and become lost in a world of egotism. We journey along ignoring the little voice that is leading us to our life purpose. Basically it gets drowned out.
LIFE’S TRUE RIDE! BUCKLE UP!
Let’s explore and try to get our heads around the truth. Believe me it can be a bit of a “reach” for us all and that includes me. I researched Dr Wayne Dyer and gleaned an understanding of the following information from his teachings. From the time of our inception (that tiny wee speck of life), to our birth everything we need is taken care of from the colour of our eyes to fully functioning organs etc. We had nothing to do but hang about contentedly and let something grow us. Can we begin to perceive that the source taking care of all this is spirit, the Almighty, the true essence of life or the light within us. There are many ways to describe this source and it is responsible for all creation (the planet, the trees, flowers, seas, mountains, flora and fauna, the universe, stars, moon, sun absolutely everything and all is perfection).
Do you agree this level of perfect creation is beyond man and therefore, for me, it is easy to believe in a power greater than ourselves. Immediately I want to know and understand what this power is. We have it within us, as it grew and took care of us in the womb, so where is it now? This power (a voice, or is it intuition) is still there however now drowned out by our egos. Our egos teach us “we are not some divine being” we are what we have and we identify ourselves with our possessions, we value ourselves with what we achieved and strive to get to the top, and while we are working so hard our egos throw in be careful of what people think of you (our reputation) and consequently this new image becomes our identity, or who we think we are. Does this make sense? So how do we reconnect with our source? Big question and I will humbly attempt to explain what seems to have worked, or is working for me.
BROUGHT TO OUR KNEES
We are often brought to our knees to wake us up. This has happened to me personally. When we have failed miserably what or where do we turn to? That wee small voice that begins to SHOUT! ” LISTEN, LISTEN, LISTEN! You have tried it your way and failed, now follow me and I will handle everything for you (like I did when you were in the womb)”. At this point in time we have to surrender our egos to reconnect and obey our inner nature, our essence, the light within us.
WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT I hear you ask? Forgive me but you already know what I am talking about. Have you ever asked yourselves “I wonder what my purpose in life is?” Follow this, follow, follow, follow. Read what we can, go out into nature, focus on the perfection, pick up an ant and see the perfection, smell the roses, watch the waterfall and the sunlight sparkling in it, focus on a sunrise, sunset, a bird winging along, the perfection of your pet dog, or cat and the perfection of your own body (your heart beats for you, your breathing, sight, hearing, mobility etc). Really look in a calm peaceful frame of mind and ask questions out loud, or quietly within like “how did this all happen?” Make the realisation that you are perfection too, you are a part of all that is. To do this exercise, I suggest that you are sober, quiet in your mind, peaceful and wear an attitude of wonderment. By doing this you are witnessing the source and the source is in you too. I have found that my inner voice, intuition is at it’s loudest when I am quietened. Ask question after question and you will become connected and get the answers you are looking for.
The person drawn to me to this time is Dr Wayne Dyer internationally renown author and speaker in the fields of self development and spiritual growth. His first book Erroneous Zones, published in 1976 became an international bestseller and launched his career as an author and speaker. He died in 2015. I want to share this beautiful quote from Dr Dyer “Don’t die with your music still in you.” (Meaning of course, your purpose unfilled).
I have found since I faithfully follow my inner voice all that I do leads me to the next step and the next step and the next. Articles about people I need to read about, pop up on my computer when I’m searching for something else and when I read the first one it leads me to another or information I have gleaned becomes my next post subject and so on and so on.
Bear in mind, my website was brought about by sincerely wanting to help others, share and learn from others and personal development has always fascinated me and been my passion.
My website has become my daily diary believe it or not. As I face my demons and grow, enquire, explore and develop, I am sharing it with you. I must be one of the few people whose diaries are so public!. Please be aware I am not an expert, my content is my opinion and if it helps people I am grateful.
Please share with me your comments, experiences and questions. I would love you to join the conversation and contribute to the whole. Many thanks. Cheers now, Jill
