from The Desk of MarDrag:
We all feel Lost at some time in our lives. We are wonderful, complex, intelligent, spiritual beings…but sometimes we have difficulty finding our way…or circumstances overwhelm us…or the past rises up to inhibit our present and future…or we struggle to understand things that happen to us…
And so, we seek Guidance. And, no matter who we are, we all need a bit of Guidance sometimes to straighten out the kinks in our road, to smooth the path, to help us see with clarity so that we can put things to right. Guidance can come in many forms…books, seminars, friends, therapists and counselors, doctors, spiritual guides, family or parents, meditations…just to name a few. And they are all valid and wonderful sources of fine Guidance. Any one of these sources, or a combination of them, can be profound and full, deep with enlightenment, direction, and support. And getting this Guidance can be life changing. It can give us just that extra bit of understanding or information that inspires us to see things differently, change our perception, or lift a fog so that we can find the answers we are looking for…and make our lives better.
But…the greatest form of Guidance we could ever hope to find…is right here…within each one of us. WE are the best source of Guidance for ourselves…that innate Voice of Wisdom that lurks deep within us. It is that voice that we listen to sometimes…while other times we try to deny it or shut off if its message if it is not what we want to hear. Or…if we do not trust its voice. But the Truth is…we should trust ourselves above all others. The trick, though, is to be honest with that Wiser Voice…to be completely, unashamedly honest with ourselves as we seek the Guidance we need within ourselves. And when we do this…the real Truth is discovered…and we will no longer doubt what we must do, or where our path takes us.
Any right and proper Guide will know that their roll is to assist the people they work with to find their own inner voice and discover their own inner Truth. I am just such a Guide, and my greatest joy is when enlightenment comes from the depth of the inner voice of the person I work with. I just walk along side for a while and help blow the fog away.
So, if you are in need of Guidance…seek that from who or what you need or are drawn to…and it is very valuable. But the most value you will find from Guidance is in your own voice. Listen!
