“You all know the saying which is very true: What you resist persists. And I’m sure many of you have already found that out in your life. And then suddenly when you let go of resistance you let go of an attachment to something: I need this to happen in order to be happy; I don’t want what is, I want something else. To be okay with what is, which is the simplicity of this moment, is the beginning of true change.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

from The Desk of MarDrag:
Inspiration this week has been frequent, and focused on a particular topic. That doesn’t happen too often, so when the Higher Powers so profoundly speak, I must listen. So, there is one last message this week on the topic of Destiny and Life Purpose. It is the thing that goes hand in hand with them….A True Life.
It is a deep question to ask of ourselves….if we are living our true life. And more importantly, when we ask that question, we must be completely honest with our answer within our hearts and souls. It does not mean we have to do anything with that answer immediately…just that we allow ourselves to consider the idea.
I said in previous posts this week how important I believe it is becoming to strive to be our authentic selves. To add that positive energy to the world to help balance all the lies and negative energy that abounds. Thoughts, words and actions have Power, so by living our true lives and fulfilling our true purpose, no matter what it is, we contribute to that balance. And the world is terribly out of balance and in trouble right now. Consider that, by changing your life, you change the world too.
Contemplate and ponder the totality and accumulation of your life experiences, for they have led you to this moment. What happens to us is part of our destiny and imperative to our understanding that they lead us to where we are meant to be. Without that, we have no direction. We would meander through life not knowing where we are going or why we are not getting there….or even that there is a There.
We all have a “greater story” than the life story we are living at this moment…unless you are already living your true purpose. Even then, the path grows further. But…with all the difficulties we endure, all the stress we bear, all the negative we tolerate…and even the good things that are a part of our life…..we still have a greater story being woven into that Great Tapestry. And there is a magnificent glow that awaits us when we choose to take up our Torch of Destiny.
Let go. Don’t resist. Let life come to you. Don’t force life, or a door to open. Stand before it and ask if it is the right door. If it is….it will open for you. If it is not, another door nearby will hear you and open to show you the way. Maybe not your way, but the way that is best for you. Sometimes, “my way” is not what is meant to be, but the way that comes turns out to be the “Best” way.
Is there something that has been on your mind that you have always wanted to do, but never did because “life” got in the way? Is there something you started but never finished? Is there a flame of thought that you think might serve people but never fanned it because you think it/ you are not good enough? Is there something you have always “known” about yourself, but never took the time to explore and cultivate it? What was it as a child that you yearned to grow up and be? What did you think your life passion was then, and now? What is that one thing that you are sure you are so good at, but don’t choose to do?
These are a few questions to help you ponder…this is the stuff of epiphanies and realizations…..and they can lead us to where we are meant to go. To that True Life we are meant to live. And, to the self-happiness and the betterment of the world should we choose to go….There.
