Camino Interno Part 3
There exists no map or a GPS that can tell us which way to go. Nothing and no one can tell you what to do with you experience, only you can decide on the direction of your life. You have to out-do your struggles and fight your own battles, after all it is YOUR journey. We all have to make our own life-changing decisions and we have to face the great challenge of life ourselves. We will make mistakes and wrong decisions, it’s part of the human experience, but we must live with them, and ALWAYS learn from them. Fools are those who allow their mistakes to continually repeat themselves over and over again. If we don’t learn from out lessons we keep having them, in-prisoning ourselves in a vicious cycle until we learn our lesson and we can grow and upgrade to next level along our path. If you made mistakes and headed down the wrong path, remember that it is never too late to change the direction of your life and become who you want to be. If you find that you’re not proud of the person you have become and the life you are living then change the course of your life. While you exist you are allowed to start over as many times as you want. Moving forward along your path you will face new and different obstacles and it is you who must face them. You have to struggle and wrestle with them until you finally overcome them.
All I can give you as a word of advice is to listen to the whispers of your heart and trust your instinct, your own inner voice. No matter how faint and dim, our inner-voice is always there, we just have to quiet down the noise of the mind and pay attention to it. When the mind is quiet you can hear your inner thoughts, your conscience, which guides us faithfully. We have inside us the faith that all gods provide.
God lives within us all. I’m sorry to break it to you, but god is not overlooking life from a castle in the clouds. God is here on earth and he lives within us all. This makes us all special and unique beings, we have inside us all the marvels and wonders of the universe. We have to accept our own magnificence and make our lives reflect this primordial truth. The light lies within each and every one of us all we have to do is find it, cherish it, and share it, reflecting light unto others.
Admire the greatness in others and know that you too can be great. You have a powerful thinking brain capable of anything, limited only by the power of your imagination. You have the resilient spirit of a warrior inside you. Be strong, be smart, and don’t be afraid. We might not have complete and total control over our lives, shit happens, i’m not ignoring that. There are things that will happen to us which are out of our control, but it is within us to chose how we react to every situation that life throws at us. In this way, we do have some say in the happenings of our lives. We have to control what we can and not allow the of immensity of life to overwhelm us. No task is beyond us. Like the Yakut teaching,
“When the blizzard lashes the taiga, only a fool tries to face it and struggle with its power. But only a fool abandons himself to it and lets it blow him where it will. The wise man leans against it and lets it push him slowly, slowly, so he can pick his path and find his way to safety.”
We have to adapt this saying to our lives and slowly and consciously direct our lives through this crazy freak storm we call life. Listen to yourself, connect with you conscience and look for the wisdom to make the right decisions. Whatever decision you make, wherever you go, make sure you go with all of your heart. Be grateful for each day, put one foot in front of the other and keep moving forward. Trust Your Instincts and Follow Your Heart, whatever that means to you. Like always, keep growing, in the Light Direction.
