Psst! Hey You. Yeah, the good-lookin’ one with that Spiritual glow about ’em.
Ever seek a second opinion on how to get into heaven? No, I’m not talking about waiting until you’re dead. I mean, right “now.”
Ok, ok, let me change that term. Instead of “heaven,” how about a release from earthly desires and concerns. Hmmm? A little better? More doable for your immediate future?
No, you don’t have to sell me your soul. What do you think I am, the devil ? I’m not trying to tempt anyone. Just wondering out loud about my own “salvation” and how I don’t want to “squander away” my life seeking something “out there” when the way to “perfection” was within me all the time.
I love to meditate and receive what I call a small taste of the Divine. I believe it’s in all of us should we want it enough. Enough, that is, to give up an “ego” view of the world and trade in material goods for an upgrade for spiritual ones.
It must start from within, however, and if you try to find it in another person, you’ll hit a dead-end. Get no further than another detour, or half-way across a bridge whose use has been discontinued with no warning. You just start over again. But point your Self in the right direction, this time, and go within.
How do you know your path is the right one? If you get filled with love, not only for all other living beings, but also for yourself, then you can pretty much be assured you’re on the right track. Love comes from the same place you start your journey. From within. Not a narcissistic love, but a compassionate love that is full of forgiveness for all the imperfections of man. And/or woman.
For me, the biggest roadblock has been a fear of treading on a completely new pathway. Like walking to a foreign land, with my Self as the only guide. “Letting go” is something that I have had to learn to do with so many things held so dearly that they prevented me from even starting this new life. Once I began, however, many things simply fell away for lack of interest, lack of desire, lack of attachment.
Don’t hold onto a doctrine because someone once advised you to follow it. Get a second opinion. Go within. Seek the Love that flows from a Higher Source before making that new start. It’s just your life . . . and mine . . . that we’re talking about. Not some one else’s you believe they meant for you.
