The path less travelled
Sometimes it feels like a dream, this life we live, and I wonder when we’re gonna wake up, roll over, and smile about it.
I truly do feel like there’s something for us after this life. Something waiting. Who knows what it could be, but for now it feels to me like we’re a part of something larger, like we have some specific purpose or something to accomplish with our time here.
I read recently that wherever someone was wounded most as a child, emotionally, etc., this is where their gift will come from. Their deep offering to the world will come from this place so long as they allow their lives to develop in this manner. Being true to your self.
I really pains me to see so many people caught in things that ultimately don’t matter. Work deadlines, superfluous responsibilities, petty concerns, office jobs that slowly kill your soul, little by little.
All of these things conspire to keep you from figuring out who you truly are, and keep you from figuring out what your gift to this world really is. And then in this sense, life becomes a waste.
So cut out those things that keep you from this. Quit that job you hate. And really get to know yourself. There can be so much to learn.
