If you've ever felt lost, if you've sought for answers regarding your life, if you've been wanting a spiritual guru to just tell you what to do, this post may have answers for you. You see, you no longer have to look outside of you, because you actually have all the answers within you already!
I used to think that in order to be spiritual, I had to become one of those spiritual gurus out there. Maybe I had to have a beard and wear a robe...
Ok, wrong image. LOL
Well, as a woman, perhaps I had to become a yogi and not wear any makeup. You know, be all natur-al. I've also wondered at times if I needed more crystals and learn to meditate better...
It's not that any of these were inherently bad or unhelpful. They've all helped me at one time or another in my journey. I was just always searching for answers out there and wanted desperately to try to see if my problems would finally disappear.
In my own journey, I even went through a time where I was very anti-corporation. I was very militant about eating ONLY organic and shielded my kids from the destructive propaganda of the media by not having a tv in the house.
You see, I didn't do those things in order to BE more spiritual. I think I realized after a while that just by not participating in the mass brainwashing wouldn't solve everything. In fact, it didn't miraculously make me happy. It was like waking up in the movie, Matrix, with all the goo and bald. Slight exaggeration, but I felt like I was hit with a ton of bricks because I had been believing a lie my entire life!
I was becoming aware that my life was a programming. A programming which made me believe that I had to study hard in school, then graduate and get into a good university. Graduate uni and get a good job, get married, have kids, buy a house, and retire. Sound familiar? Does this ring a bell for you?
Because I began to see that those things did not guarantee happiness, and in fact, I was miserable. I began to realize that I could choose to do life differently. It took me a while to own my power to have a different life because I encountered violent oppositions from those who said they loved and cared for me. It's interesting how people project and take things so personally when it's not even their life you're living, eh?
Anyway, when I finally got enough courage to look within, when I stopped making excuses by not having enough time or money or help, when I stopped blaming others for why things weren't working out, that is when I began to see real changes in my life and miracles happening. And for the first time in my life, I experienced true happiness.
You see, I realized that I was a divine being. We are all spiritual beings! We were never anything different. We just forgot for a while, or decades in my case.
So remember that you're an infinite being with all the answers within you already. All you have to do is look in the mirror. There is your perfect guru! :)
