I think a lot of us can feel like we aren’t doing things “right” on our spiritual journeys. We listen to what some guru says and then apply it to our lives, but all too soon our humanness makes itself obvious. We feel as though we have failed said guru’s pious instructions. But there is no “right” way to go about your perfect journey. Your life is a sublime and original unfolding of magic – the magic that’s already in you.
Nothing can take away this magic, and nothing can make your finding it less special. You see, enlightenment is rediscovering who you’ve been all along, and how you find yourself is completely up to you. No one can tell you how to do it.
Yes, a spiritual teacher can point out the ways you are limiting consciousness. They can help you to expand your awareness. But such expansion has nothing to do with judgment. It isn’t about analyzing what’s “wrong” with your human experience. It is only about increasing love.
You are here to open your heart to more love than you ever have before. And the way you do this is unique. There is no other path like yours. There is only how much you want to grow.
Just by living during these accelerating times, you are being offered countless opportunities to grow with love. You are being given experiences that are both painful and glorious, and they will change your soul forever. And the only thing this growth requires is trust in your spectacular self.
You are already trusting. Just think about the trust it took for you to come here and live this human life. So allow yourself to trust, and watch it bless your life a thousand fold! Watch it give you perspective in your relationships and allow you to see the love in every human being. Let trust empower you and enable you to truly learn. Let it illuminate your experiences with gratitude because your heart is opening again.
Trust yourself and follow your spiritual curiosity, and you will see life as the sacred classroom it is. Find your growth reflected in the walls around you and the people you share this room with. Grow, sublime being, and let your unfolding unfold, however that happens to be. Unveil your own magic like clouds recede to blue, and then open that sky to reveal the entire cosmos! There, you will find yourself and the answer to every question you’ve ever asked. Such is your perfect awakening and your sublime spiritual path.
