• SIGNAL •
A friend of mine spoke of such things several years ago:
It is especially helpful to pose the question to oneself, "Will I go in the direction that takes me closer to God (fulfillment) or further away?" The choice is ours. Every path we take will inevitably teach us something of value along the way to enlightenment -- but the quickest way the realizing one's potential is to remain ever aware of this simple question... Will this take me closer to my highest potential or will it contribute to my feelings and manifestation of inadequacy?
If the answer is not clear, perhaps in times of chaos, overwhelm, apathy, brain fog– whatever... there are two things you can always do to help filter out the signal from the noise. Pray. Meditate. It's not woo-woo either...It just works, like a wrench or a screwdriver - to tune the mind.
• Prayer, as in sending out a signal affirming where I stand -- and where I desire to go - thus predisposing my faculties to attune to and accept the outcome with grace.
• Meditation, as in allowing the volume of silence to inform decisions with clarity. Meditation, as in simply listening without judgement, allowing effortlessly, the passing streams of chatter to fade on their own accord, as the mind enters its much needed asylum of silence. Meditation, as in tuning in, receiving the signal to move forward with that project or passion you've been putting off.
• The movement toward realizing the highest version of YOU can be anything. It could be serving others, taking better care of your body, mind, spirit, following a passion of yours, telling a story you want to tell, or honing a skill you want to master – anything that ignites your soul and takes you further along the path of discovery within.
