Should we STOP asking this?

Updated: May 31

Have you ever asked yourself if you're "on your true life path?" In healing/energy/spiritual circles it's an FAQ. We want to make sure we're on the right path, living our soul's purpose! We're afraid our troubles are caused by being on the wrong path. We are desperate to hear those spirit guides because they hold the secret to our true life path!

What if we asked ourselves a new question? What if we assume we ARE on the right path? Because what other path is there? If you're already on it, how could it not be your path?

What if the question wasn't, "IS this my path?" but simply, "How do I feel?" From there we might ask, "So what's my next step?"

Am I going to lament this path?

Am I going to embrace it?

Am I going to pause right here and take it in?

Am I going to veer off in a new direction?

Or stop dead and bang a U-ey.

Lately when I hear True Life Path, all I can think of is Siri commanding me to RETURN TO THE ROUTE and getting snippy if I dare to talk back. (Or an earlier British GPS gal who was always "recalulating" in a pissed off voice if I missed the turn!)

Did you notice how it doesn't feel right to say gal anymore? Neither does it sound right to bully ourselves onto our TRUE LIFE PATH. I love how far we've come! Everything is speeding up and changing, but we don't have to worry! We can soften and slow down, even in the midst of it.

What if it's all ok. Some of us are dizzy, but the new is emerging. Did you read Eckhart Tolle's New Earth? What if you stop and breathe. You're good. You are absolutely on the right path. (What if we are all on the right path?)

Do you hate your/our path in this moment? You have every right. Now ask yourself:

Am I going to lament this path?

Am I going to embrace it?

Am I going to pause right here and take it in?

Am I going to veer off in a new direction?

Or stop dead and bang a U-ey! Are you not from Boston? That's how they used to say U-turn. I'm not from here either, but I learned it along with bubbler and wicked pisser. (bubbla, pissa)
