Aligned living is all about living inflow with Universal energy and Inner Guidance. Even when it would be so much easier not to listen to the Song of our Heart.

After all, would it not have been easier for Jesus to head in different directions, especially when he sensed what the outcome of certain situations would be?

There are even more people throughout history that listened to their hearts and did what they were called upon to do, even when it would have been so much easier not to.

You’ve experienced similar situations in your life, haven’t you? Zigged when you would have much rather zagged?

A Long & Winding Road

I’ve always been of the belief that my spiritual journey began some 20 years ago. The truth of the matter is that Spirit was setting me up for it long before that.

And one reoccurring theme I’ve noticed and railed against over the years is…

Often, in different areas of the spiritual community, it is as though people are in a hurry to abandon “ship”. It’s not even “women and children first”, but “every man for himself”.

Now, I do firmly believe a couple of things…
 

  1. We are not here to “save” anyone. There is nothing to save anyone from.
  2. The best and only way to truly change the world is to change ourselves.

However, does a Lighthouse really serve its intended and greater Purpose on a bright, clear day?

Its light still works, of course, but it’s more purposeful and shines brightest on dark stormy days and nights.

Wouldn’t you agree?

Earning Our Wings

Cultivating positivity in our lives is imperative if we are to truly create a life that we love experiencing.

After all, that is why we – as souls – are here. To experience existence in a way that unavailable to us without physical form.

But the Human experience is also about growth and expansion, particularly in our ability to love and the compassion we feel for another. “Abandoning ship”, turning a blind-eye to, or judging the challenges and sufferings of others does not make us, somehow, superior.

Being “in the trenches”, offering love, support, and guidance (at least, when asked) is how we grow and expand as individuals and Spirits.

This is not to say that we need to constantly sacrifice our own needs, deplete our energy, or become a martyr. Part of this Journey to “earn our wings” is learning balance in life, especially where Service to Others is concerned.

But it is a lesson well worth the effort to learn it.

I don’t know about you, but, in my experience, there are few things that can lift my spirit than to have shone a light in someone’s darkness.

We are ONE. We are in this Human experience together.

Our wings are earned “in the trenches”, not by removing ourselves from them.

Until next time, dear friend, may a little light shine into your life when you most need it. ❤️
