A Solitary Journey: Following the Path to Spiritual Awakening
“When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.” – Tao Te Ching
Working on one’s self is a process of becoming. It is finding, knowing and accepting who we are. It is having the willingness to fall flat on our asses, stumble around, and make some mistakes. It is being in tune with the constant process of death and rebirth that is part of life’s rhythm.
Each of us has our own, internal timetable; the rhythm of our Spirit. The process of discovering for ourselves just what that rhythm may sound like, or feel like and living according to its direction can bring to each of us untold serenity and joy. Our knowledge, or awareness gained through our new understanding also shall bring to us energy, because we’re not fighting the current; no longer is life an uphill battle. We’re not fighting ourselves, or reality. Most times, are we not our own worst enemy? To face who we are and to learn and grow from the experience is being created anew. In the process, we discover our own truths. Maybe that’s part of what a spiritual awakening is; seeing the truth in a new way.
Living according to the guidance of our Spirit and in harmony with our body, mind, and emotions is a solitary journey, but one that ultimately brings us close to other people and to life itself.
