Today, I want to share something I read that sums up perfectly the Path:
“I prayed for change, so I changed my mind.
I prayed for guidance and learned to trust myself.
I prayed for happiness and realized I am not my ego.
I prayed for peace and learned to accept others unconditionally.
I prayed for abundance and realized my doubt kept it out.
I prayed for wealth and realized it is my health.
I prayed for a miracle and realized I am the miracle.
I prayed for a soul mate and realized I am the one.
I prayed for love and realized it’s always knocking,
but I have to allow it in.”- Jackson Kiddard
To me, the Path isn’t about making life rosy and sunny. It’s not about painting a positive outlook over life. The Path is about empowering yourself to be responsible for your life. It’s about the study and understanding of self to understand the world around you. Until, you can love yourself fully, you can never fully love someone else. The first step to the Path is to want to be on the Path. You have to change your mind. You have to recognize that there is something bigger than you and you have to want to get to know it. Everything that you want and need in this world is within you. You guide the Universe by telling it what you want. If you don’t love yourself then you are telling the Universe that you want to be unloved. You can change that. You can be kind, loving and receptive to yourself. You can believe that you are meant to be abundant. You can know that you are a miracle. If you can step fully into who you are, you can experience all the beauty the Universe has to offer. The Path is to discover that you are the beauty that the Universe has to offer and it’s just waiting for you to understand and allow it.
