Lost on the Spiritual Path

You may tell the greatest lies and wear a brilliant disguise, but you can’t escape the eyes of the one who sees right through you ~ Tom Robbins

Lying is as easy for some people as breathing. However, we will all lie at some point in our lives.  Just be aware of the enormous spiritual damage that occurs to us when we do.  Big, Tall, White or Small… they are all lies. The issue is not just the lying itself. We have to uncover the reason that forces us to lie to others and especially to ourselves.  This reason could be driven by angst or ego.  Another reason could be being someone else’s disappointment. That in itself is reason enough to try and recreate oneself! All this does is create dark and negative energy. If you want to progress spiritually, then you will need to work on your ego, fear, anger or perhaps even regret. Basically anything that is crippling your Spirit.

We should all be able to look into a mirror and be comfortable with the eyes of the one who sees right through us.  Like the seemingly perfect reflection of a Sunset on a Lake. The undercurrent has created a distortion in what would have been a perfect V formation of migratory birds.  Follow Your Truth. It is a hard journey, but your Energy will be stronger for it.

 

Journey Within

We all have our paths in life we are supposed to follow to find who we are supposed to be, but it’s not always a straight path. There is something inside of us that guides us, and if you are quiet and listen to it, you’ll be all right  ~   Kyan Douglas

It takes courage to live, to express oneself, and lead a meaningful life. Be fierce. Be tenacious and above all, have the courage of your convictions to walk your road with dignity and respect.  Live your life with purpose and be kind and generous of heart. Be willing to help your fellow travelers on life’s seemingly bumpy road. There will be challenges, forks in the road and distractions along the way but at some point, hopefully, we will stop, be quiet and listen.

When we turn to our compass of life and find our truth, we will realize that the only journey is the one within. Bon Voyage!

I have a friend, Johnny Blackbird,  who makes beaded story hat bands. They are beautiful in design and each has a unique story of spirit and journey.  He just recently posted a blog giving the meaning of the different designs and their placement on the hat bands. I found this so interesting as the choices we make and how we conduct ourselves sets the course with which we navigate our life journey. Johnny’s hat bands tell stories of spirit, energy and the path we travel.  A journey of courage, strength and dignity.

Aho Grady. The spirit animal while the focus of the hat band, my newer ones are all about the journey. The path we travel, the energy and how we all need good medicine in order to leave the illusion and touch the stars with balance, dignity and humility.
