When we wake up, we are starting a journey into the soul. This is a wondrous voyage, an exciting adventure of discovering our true Self. However, there are so many levels to the soul – or consciousness, and the journey is associated with so many changes on all levels of our being, that it can become confusing and one is easily distracted by the mind, which is struggling for survival. This is why no one should walk there all alone.
When we are waking up, we are on a journey of self-discovery.
Life is giving us all the help we need. There are parts of the journey we may accomplish on our own, but there are stretches we walk in company. It is a little bit like a roped party in the mountains – alternatively one leads, the other follows and both are concerned with the safety for each other. The intent is to get to the top of the mountain, enjoy the climb and the journey being it’s own reward.
Trust is the prerequisite. Without trusting Life and each other, true development cannot happen. Self-discovery is all about one being in the presence of the other, to recognise and to let go of patterns and behaviours that are no longer serving the Truth.
It is about finding purpose in life, the way and channel to share the Truth and serve Life. It does include changes to the way I live now and it requires that I am open at all times to anything Life asks me to do.
It is about devotion to the task at hand, awakening becoming a priority and it is about faith that I have everything I need, will get every help along the way, Life itself is taking care of me and all those around me, in order to reach the top of the mountain.
It is about honesty. Only if I am able to look at myself, open up and do away with my own predicaments, only if I accept who I am right here and right now, will I be able to travel the road safely, without losing my way or getting distracted by the persuasive ideas of the mind.
It is about communication. Only a true and honest exchange about the findings, trials and tribulations, challenges and the best way to master them, does make true development possible.
And this is what we are discovering walking in company – OneSelf.
