Let me start this particular blog (my second ... my first is here: Rewiring the Soul) by encouraging you all to become aware of yourselves not only as human beings, but also as beings who vibrate to an inner purpose or mission, whatever that may be, and who, if that inner purpose or mission is not found, may realize that finding true joy in life becomes very difficult.
Wow! True joy…that is actually a biggie. We’re raised believing that others owe us joy and happiness…until we figure out that if it’s ever going to come from anywhere, it will have to come from inside, unless we want to live in a state of eternal external dependence. But for it to come from inside, that inside part first has to get worked on…cleaned out…polished…and so on. Doing that actually means working on everyday stuff. It’s not a case of high spiritual work, but of the actual day-by-day things: impatience, communication, anger, loving, giving, receiving, forgiving, opening up, listening, compassion, and so on.
I guess we often think that in order to grow, and in order to become more free, whatever it is we do has to have this high spiritual tone. Not so…as I see it…the high spiritual tone is actually set by working on these commonplace everyday things in our lives. That is where we can bring about the true inner change.
