I once heard the word “blog” defined as, “Never have so many, with so little to say, said so much.” I think that’s hysterical and right now, at this particular moment, I need a little humor in my life. Why? Because I’m here today to launch my own blog … Yes, I’m venturing into the world I call “Insight out!” I hope you’ll enjoy what I have to say and learn some things that help you live a better life … Fuller, richer and deeper, as we say. I believe we all have a story to tell and often we can learn a lot from somebody else’s story. If my story enlightens or enlivens your life a bit, I will be so happy!
If I were to sum up my Spiritual Journey, I might use the phrase, “Becoming The One You’ve Been Waiting For.” First-and-foremost, this statement screams at me, “Stop waiting!” Don’t we do that? Wait, because fear says, “You better not do it!” But why not? Often it’s because “they” might not like it. And who are “they?” Who even knows? It doesn’t really matter. We all have a certain degree of fear about what other people think of us; I know I do. I will say that this is one of the great gifts of getting older … You stop caring so much about what other people think of you. Yep, I have actually learned to keep my own counsel on a fairly regular basis. Not that somebody else can’t still squash me like a bug. It happens. But it happens a lot less often and with much less devastation these days. I’ve worked very hard to become The One I’ve been waiting for.
So, why write a blog? Why take the risk and put myself out there for the world to see … and criticize? First answer: I don’t really know why and, truth be told, I might be wrong.:) Second answer: Because I have been so gifted in my Journey and I want to give back! Third answer, akin to the second: There are few things cooler in life than having somebody tell you that something you said or did has had a great big positive impact on their lives. I just love having a conversation or an experience with someone and watching them come to realize something about their lives that they really, really needed. It’s like watching a flower open right before your eyes.
Mind you, that third answer is risky. It is fraught with the possibility of coming from the ego. There’s a fine line we walk between wanting to help and thinking we are the end-all and be-all for somebody else’s problems. That whole guru thing can happen. Anyone who puts themselves out there as a possible example of “how to do it” runs the risk of coming from their ego. It’s something we must all be mindful about. And even if we feel certain that we are in humility, other people might be just as certain that we think we’re “all that” and now you have a critic on your hands. I guess I still think it’s worth it, so I’m gonna stick my toe in the deep and dangerous waters of public self-analysis as an opportunity to assist people in learning to heal their own lives. And certainly it will help me continue to heal myself.
What this means to me is that I’m going to show you what I look like as a student of life in the hope that it helps you take a look at yourself in a similar way. Not that you need to do specifically what I do, but hopefully I will inspire you to go inside and figure out some things that are keeping you stuck. God once called me, “A Sower of Seeds” and that fits well with what I hope to do here … Sow seeds of Love and Light that you might decide to tend and then enjoy watching them grow.
In my book “Second Coming – Awakening The Christ Within” I talk about the idea that it’s time for us to stop waiting for that one special person to come and save us all. We must pick up our power and participate in God’s Plan. It is time to awaken to the Spirit of God inside us. In preparing us to awaken, Jesus actually showed us how to Become The One.
Another aspect of “Become The One you’ve been waiting for” that I struggled with for years (Read: most of my life!) was the idea that someday a man would come who would be the answer to all my questions. Thankfully, I have learned my way through this for the most-part, but there are still remnants of the idea that having a mate would make everything right. (And I do so love that flutter in the belly that new romance brings, don’t you?) I think some of this is natural, since I truly believe we are meant to couple. But we must not think of ourselves as incomplete or lacking simply because we are not currently in a romance!
I will do my best to make sure the posts aren’t too long. And I’ll get enough meat in front of you that you can really sink your teeth in. Unlike many other blogs, I welcome your input and comments. Give me ideas of what you’d like to hear about. And I will be especially excited to hear what is working or not working for you. Let’s share some mindfulness about the way we take this walk of life. Join me on this Journey toward self-empowerment, Self Love and all out bliss! Let’s practice together. Let’s be in a state of Becoming.
