I am making all necessary changes to live by my convictions. What is true to Me, to my soul and to my heart. And let me say the term ‘soul’ does not belong to any religion…. it is your inner being.
This is something that we should all consider doing at times. Often we get swept away with all that is going on around us and forget, albeit momentarily, the core of who we are. I am not a religious man but I am a man of my own spiritual beliefs emanating from our ancestors and working together in harmony with Mother Earth and the energy that abounds throughout the universe.
Recently I found the ugliness of fanaticism and the bias and ignorance of some individuals raise its ugly head again which made me take a step back to reassess my own direction in life. I noticed that I was trying to walk multiple paths and this was not serving me as it should. I immediately closed the gates to some and politely exited others to return to my central being.
The world is currently seeing a global resurgence of extremists and I will not be swayed or drawn into any of the quarrels or the pettiness that has become apparent. It does not mean I am ignorant nor am I choosing to be oblivious to current events. It is just that I see no purpose in compounding them. Yet I do stand tall against any extremist movements that bring deliberate or unnecessary harm to any living thing and for that I may not remain silent!
Yet that is only one aspect of my present defragmenting of my mind. Since I was a child I have resonated with the natural world and it with me. I guess it wasn’t that I strayed from this path but as alluded to above, I walked a number of paths or as we say, I was wearing many hats at once. All were worn in good faith and respect and these avenues were of interest to me due to my family history. But the core of their existence was not me…. it was an integral part of my spiritual journey to experience all of it over the last 16 years and it is something I will write about in time…… Sharing ‘My Spiritual Journey’.
So tonight as I write this I am feeling calmer and clearer and true. I am listening to soothing music and being creative….. this is what I love.
Blessings to all,
