You’re not lost.

You’re finding your way.

Every step, every movement, every decision and every breath is part of the path.

The ups and downs. The contractions. The expansions. It is all part of learning to find your way. It’s all part of the road you are supposed to travel.

Once you start letting go of the old ways of doing things some pretty interesting things start to happen. You come into full contact with the present moment, release yourself from the present and the future and all there is…is here.

The past seems like a collection of distant memories in a shoe box somewhere and the future just becomes a succession of “nows.”

Now. Now. Now. Now.

Brick by brick. Ripple by ripple. Intentions and decisions cascade into the unknown.

As the old stories begin to fall apart, room opens up all around you. Possibilities flood in. Adventure begins to call. Even though there is nothing, everything can be created from that place.

You’ll always be able to travel down old paths if you wish. It will bring you back to everything you’ve already known. It’s almost as if you’re in a dream state when you go back and do the things you used to do in the places you used to do them.

There you are, witnessing yourself in action almost as if you were out of your own body.

You can play around with that for a while, but you always have to come back. Dig into what’s going on right now. These are your only moments.

At times that can be a bit intimidating. I think there’s a tendency to want to doubt everything that you’re going through and question whether or not it is the way.

But that’s where faith comes in.

Faith dissolves the doubt and lights the stepping stones up in front of you.

You have the freedom to choose. You always have. But do you have the courage to trust?

See the way in front of you. Trust the wisdom guiding you. And most of all, commit to it. The heavens smile upon those who believe in their dreams.

If the heart whispers it so.
