Journey Monologues: GRATEFUL? #spirituality #guidance #gratitude

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”
— Rainer Maria Rilke

For everyone, if they so choose, there is a journey waiting. Patience is required. Karmically, we may all be in different places. So who is to say the length or route that your journey will take? That is for you, alone, to discover.

Start with gratitude for where you are now. Gratitude is a powerful agent of change. Appreciation for everything you have starts to loosen up negativity and brings new light into your life. We are all so fortunate to be here.

Can you see? Walk? Talk? Be grateful.

Live everything. We have a voice. We have a choice. We have the power to intend what direction we want our lives to go. Take charge and responsibility of how you spend this gift of this precious human life that you have been granted.

There is help along the way. Guidance always shows up . If our hearts are open and our intentions are clear, what we need will appear. Answers may come in a book that appears in front of us, or a song we hear on the radio. It might be in that conversation we overhear on the street or perhaps even the absence of what we expect. 

Everything happens for a reason. Remember that. There is something to learn in each and every event of our lives. If we look at life as a place to grow, gain realizations and find space to help others, then all things become of benefit.

We all want one thing – lasting happiness. Stop looking for it outside of yourself. You will not find it there. Start today, search for it inside . Be your own best friend, your own superhero and in time you will, without even noticing the subtle changes, live your way home.
