Awaken the Lion Within
I have had another epiphany over the last few days. In the dance of life, I think one of the hardest things is to trust the individuality that is within each of us. Our egos so want to belong and to find a place that we feel is home to us. You can spend your entire life trying to fit into patterns that do not work and do not support the giving of the gift that is your uniqueness.
We want to find others of like mind so that we do not feel alone. But in reality, you are completely alone in finding the way to give your deepest purpose and gift. You alone are responsible for how that gift is given and received in the world. Right or wrong does not matter. You must try to find the way through the maze that is your personality in order to fulfill your deepest purpose.
Many will spend their life trying to uncover just what is that gift and purpose. This process can take lifetimes, years of meditation, and inner work to uncover. Many people do not have the time, discipline, or skill to navigate their way through this maze. But if you can and are willing to do the work, something amazing begins to happen. You realize that there are no teachers out there to help with the last great step. To honor that which is truly you and to be willing to take that risk and show the world what and who you are.
It is a terrifying leap into the void. You do not know what lies ahead. You do not know if you will be accepted or rejected. But none of that matters in the long run. You are here to find a way to give your gift. To find a way to find meaning in the struggles and hopelessness that threatens to pull you into the suffering of this planet.
Until you find a way to express your gift, you will continue to reincarnate back into this plane of suffering and struggle. It is your task and yours alone. It was given to you not anyone else. Other cannot understand the depth and meaning of that gift. Even if they can see it and want to help it emerge. This task was entrusted to you and only you can find the pathway. You can have others on the quest to help but you must be the navigator and captain of that gift's expression in the world.
Your personality will want to please others and to conform so that you will fit somewhere.
That is not the game.
You are a warrior bringing light into darkness. You cannot be that light if you conform to others perception of freedom. It is like a coat that will not fit your souls potential. You must be willing to make your own coat. To find your own path and to show the way for others.
One quality that has been strongly present in my personality is this tremendous awareness and desire to expand each soul to their individual potential beyond the personality. Many have called me strong willed and stubborn in that I listen to other's perceptions but I do not take everything that anyone says as complete truth. None of you should. If you loose touch with the deepest parts of your inner knowingness is a disaster waiting to happen. This creates the potential of you becoming a victim and allowing the collapse of the gift that is yours to give.
I have a strong knowing and inner wisdom that has guided me and allowed me to navigate through life and death situations repeatedly. My gift is to support the emergence of others beyond the dance of karma into nirvana. That journey is unique to each individual. The process is one of realizing that suffering is the way the mind/ego will collapse you to keep you from being the gift that you came to give.
When you realize that the game of suffering is a choice then the process transforms into a warriors game of conscious clarity and awakened light within you. That energy moves moment by moment and expands as you allow your soul to become its greatest gift in the world.
I invite those brave souls that want to find unusual doorways of consciousness to their own unique life's gifts and soul purpose to play with me. You do not need to belong to another group or to belong to my group. I am here to support your individuality in many forms and styles through my writing, lectures, classes, and individual sessions.
I hope this blog has inspired you to claim that gift within you and to finally step into your soul's potential. I am also claiming my gifts and would enjoy observing others in their emergence.
