How to tell if you’re on a spiritual journey

May 27, 2017

If you’re alive, you’re on a spiritual journey!
Most of us only realize this when everything falls apart; when we go bankrupt, get divorced, a loved one dies, we get diagnosed with cancer, or have a near death experience. When shit hits the fan and nothing works anymore.

The proverbial frying pan to the back of the head.

Congratulations, this is the big alarm clock waking you up.
Now the real work (& fun) begins.

Luckily, we’re not alone in this journey.
We’ve got major backup. All we gotta do is ask, get real quiet, and pay attention.

A whole slew of angels and fairies and whatchamacallits are willing to lend us a helping hand.

We’ve got dead folks trying to breathe what they’ve learned into our lungs. Spiritual CPR. They’ll knock a book over onto your path as you’re walking in the bookstore. They’ll have you overhear a stranger’s conversation really meant to guide you. They also come into our dreams but we often forget by lunchtime.

There are also of course real life living humans too who will come into our lives one way or another, with the right thing said at the right time. Masters. Then they’ll fade away and another will take their place as we progress on our path.

The spiritual backup is also careful enough not to meddle too much. The joystick is always in our hand. All they’ll do is occasionally provide a hint here and there, then sit back and watch how we play the game.
