“No-one but your own Heart knows the best path for you. This is your life ~make it beautiful.” … Susanne
There are a lot of people in the world who think that they know what is best for everyone else. Sometimes it’s because they are teachers … or it could be that they are elected officials … or maybe they are simply really well read or educated. In the long run it doesn’t really matter what the reasons are for them choosing to share their “professional” opinions … because in the end … professional or not … their opinions are still only their opinions and have absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the reasons that your Spirit came here to experience life on Planet Earth.
When I was fighting Cancer it seemed like opinions came out of the woodwork! Everybody had one … and even though I’m pretty sure that most of the contributors of aforementioned opinions were very well-intentioned … in the end I realized that everybody was simply offering the best advice that they knew. Ultimately what I did or did not do was up to me. So … during that very intense trip I learned:
- To listen more carefully.
- To actually hear what my Heart and Spirit needed me to know …
- And then … to actually act on their advice.
- And lastly … I learned how to trust my own Heart again.
After all of that Capital “L” Life and I have become best buds. Life is the kind of awesome friend that we all wish that a) we had and, b) that we could be for others. It patiently lets me wander around … often in a fog … until I’m finally ready to yell “Uncle” and ask for help. These days I’m doing my best to use It as a Role Model of How-to-be-patient-and-Listen-to-my-Heart. Of course the person with whom I need the most patience is me. The Heart whom I need to listen to the most closely is mine … and the Spirit whose direction and guidance I most need to follow is my own. It’s taken awhile but all-in-all I’d have to say: I think I’m finally getting it!!” And no doubt Life is smiling with relief.
Godspeed and Joyful Journeying Everyone
