Life is a journey of the soul!
This is no major surprise to most people, whether they see it as a soul journey or they just desire to find their “purpose” in life, we all have a prompting inside of us to do something or be someone of significance. Even if this is to be a great Mum or Dad, Husband or Wife, Colleague or Friend. Each of us rarely wants to just “exist”.
When we see ourselves on a journey through life we can often find ourselves coming to a place where we feel like we are balancing on the edge of a precipice.
We journey from where we have been and hover between where we are now and where our soul is guiding us.
The problem arises when life gets in the way!
When teetering on this precipice it would be great to be able to put life on hold so that we can focus on our soul advancement, to speed up the process.
Yet unfortunately life does not have a “pause” button.
I can relate to this so well right now. I am at a place in my life where I have found my passion and purpose and I realise the great potential that lies in all my ideas and heart longings. I am running full steam ahead yet I seem to be teetering on the edge. I would love to pause my current job and dive headfirst into my vision. I know without a doubt it will be a soul journey of its own and yet I am hungry to pursue it. I want the growth, the understanding, the realisation of who I am and what I have to give without the limiting beliefs I have carried all my life. I can see the greater ministry I can have and I am impatient, I am no longer a spring chicken and my youth has long passed me by.
The thing is, any soul journey worth taking is often travelled amidst the day to day tasks of life. These tasks, if we allow them to, shape our journey and bring more depth to the process.
If I was to force the process and rush the journey towards my vision, I know I would miss some important lessons along the way. The depth of what I will learn won’t be as deep or transformative if I push myself forwards. I am struggling to find the balance right now. The longing for the vision is overwhelming my limited ability to juggle time, energy, finances and family responsibilities.
Although it would be great to pause life and focus on self-development or soul advancement to get there sooner and reap its rewards; peace, contentment, direction, etc. sooner. The journey is part of the process.
Don’t short cut the depth of the experience due to haste. Submit yourself to the process, however long that needs to be, and you will benefit from greater understanding and more powerful transformation.
Please feel free to reach out to me and we can travel this journey together, encouraging and supporting one another when and where it is needed.
Love and Blessings
