We have all been asked at one time or another, “What is it that you do? What spiritual path are you on?” Some of us have probably said “I don’t know what I am supposed to be doing. Who can show me my path?”
There are many people who guide and teach us on our journeys in life. And yet we may feel “I have all this knowledge but I still do not know where I am going or what my destiny is. Who can help me find the answer”?
In The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings series, Bilbo says: “It’s a dangerous thing going out your door, Frodo. You take your first step and you never know where it will lead you.”
Here, then, is the first step in fulfilling your purpose or destiny. Do not wait for someone to tell you what it is but, rather, just go forward. There may be times you travel off the path, or even seem to go in circles. You might even ask yourself, “What am I doing here, and where do I go next?”
We often seem to be in the Indiana Jones space, where he comes to a cave opening, and there is nothing to step on but air. By faith, he takes that step and a bridge appears. This is the best advice we could receive. Have faith and move forward.
It is almost certain that you will examine all the pros and cons of moving forward. You will say to yourself “I know I need to do this or that, but I also need to know that I can make a living doing this or that.” However, the dilemma is that the core answer is “not-this, not-that.” It is never wrong, then, when puzzling about your life, to move either forward or hold back. As I am often told, you are always where you’re supposed to be, regardless of the circumstance. Let life be your guide. Learn from and utilize the lessons.
Just let me close with this piece of advice.
“Step forward, my child. Your destiny is before you”.
“I know it is there. I just don’t know the way, Great Mother.”
“Here is the way, my child. Lift a foot, it matters not which one. Move it forward in the air. Now set it down firmly on the Earth. My little one, now lift the other foot and bring it forward, past the first one. Do you see, my child, that it is your path. Follow it where ever it leads.”
