An astronaut who has traveled into outer space, a deep sea diver who has skimmed the depths of the ocean, a mountaineer who has scaled the heights of Mount Everest; as accomplished as they each seem to be–they have nothing on you.
Their experiences, as difficult, exciting and adventurous as they may be are no greater or lesser than yours. Each individual’s path to fulfillment (if they choose to follow it through) is theirs, is no better or worse than others and is only unique because again–it is theirs. So, never feel small because you believe you must bend your neck backwards to even get a glimpse of others astronomical accomplishments. For where they sail high above you in one area, you will sail high above them in another. Never think small.
We all serve a purpose and none is too small or too great when compared to the God/Universe/Force that set you on your path. Sort of brings everybody on an even keel—uh? But you have a choice. You may seek the path to your highest purpose, or you can choose to remain at whatever rest stops you come to along the way. Now, here’s a thought:
Those on the path to their higher purpose will find it is not always easy, that’s just how it is with most things that are higher. It takes more effort, you must expend more energy. BUT it is the same with those who choose to stop at some point on the path to fulfillment, because they are usually froth with worrisome thoughts, “I wonder where I would be now If…?” or “I showed them how to do that, but I should have done it…” or “Have I settled for less than I know I can be or do?”
Thoughts such as these are no easier to hold when resting then the thoughts one must carry while continuing on the path to their higher purpose. My question to you is this. Why be burdened with a load while going nowhere? You will have concerns, doubts, pains, and frustrations whether you’re sitting still or on the move. The only thing keeping you where you are is you (your thoughts and actions) and the only thing that will take you where you want to go is YOU!
Now, if you’re okay with where you are—then that’s fine, it’s your choice. But if you are not okay with it (as most are not) then you’re either playing the Blame Game, the I’m Not Good Enough Game, or the I Don’t Know Enough Game. In other words, you are actually playing the I’m Playing Myself Game. These are not very fun games to play, and if more people on this planet would stop playing them, we would have a much safer, kinder and more beautiful world. Play around with that thought—it just might get you moving again.
Well, as for me and my path—I choose higher purpose every time! Yeah, I’m a glutton for challenges, but I’m up for them. Lol! And if you haven’t guessed already, it will be my pleasure to walk with you at some point along the path to higher purpose.
