Navigating life and uncovering the mystery of ourselves and our purpose here is an unavoidable wilderness.
Not everyone comes here to “wake up” and become conscious human beings. Some, really do believe that life IS a 401 K plan, a nice house, a family, a picket fence, and must see TV and there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with that… and then there are those of us who gain, get and acquire the things we thought would make us happy and we say….
“Is this it???”
If we should “awake” and find ourselves stumbling along the path of consciousness there is no turning back… in other words: you can’t un-ring a bell (Phrase courtesy of Zellda Keath).
Walking the path of consciousness is harrowing at times and the only way OUT is IN…
When you find yourself in the Wilderness~
“a bleak, numbing word that instantly calls to mind a feeling of hopelessness, nothingness, barrenness and most of all a sense of powerlessness” ~ Sarah Ban Breathnach
you know you are close, finally, to the truth.
The wilderness is where we finally shed the damaging and toxic parts of ourselves and have to “give up” the parts of us that no longer serve us. In giving up those negative aspects of ourselves we are actually giving in, to the divine plan of our lives and our purpose here.
Have any of you got a wilderness story? How did you feel and what did you discover?
