When our minds are quiet and energy is calm, we begin to hear our souls. In this solitude, we feel our souls singing, crying, dancing, and mourning. I believe it is genuine happiness to find this peace and to be truly one with our souls. It is not a place I need another to appreciate, recognize, or even witness, but a sanctuary of my own. It is the place where we meet the Divine and find our truth.
It has been an arduous, frightening, and challenging spiritual journey for me. There were moments I did not know if I would ever reach this place. My obstacle were difficult and terrifying at times facing such darkness and pain from my childhood and adult traumas. It is walking through this darkness that has led me to this light.
I know we all desperately want to reach this light, but we cannot bypass the darkness because it is too difficult or frightening. It is who we are, and it is who we will remain if we fail to face our darkness in order to change it for a different life. We also have light within each of us, and we must also accept and celebrate that light. However, to only to see the light within surely is the route toward spiritual bypass.
Your soul will tell you the truth to walk through that darkness. As we walk through this darkness, we fear what we may find and what in our current life of which we must let go. It may be those we love, career we love, or even something we simply don’t want to lose. Letting go of this past allows us to move forward onto a very different life, and one we may not recognize, but one that is meant for our souls. Put your ears down close to your soul, and listen hard. (Copyright 2016 Awakening Journey with All Rights Reserved)
