Spiritual Awakening: Finding Your Path and Your Purpose
I remember the movie, The Blues Brothers, the original with John Beluhi playing Jake and Dan Akroyd playing Elwood where they would state I am Jake and this is my brother Elwood and we are on a mission from GOD! Their mission was well defined, to raise enough money to pay the property taxes to save the school that they attended as children. They had a unique way of furthering this mission. In the end they made it to the property tax office and paid the back money to save the school. By defining their mission, being of service and value, and utilizing their talents these two offbeat musicians achieved their goal.
John Belushi(Jake) and Dan Akroyd (Elwood) contemplate their next move on their path to save their school.
Finding The Path:
Like Jake and Elwood you have a path it may not be as zanny and far fetched as it was in the movie, however it is a path and you are being guided to follow it everyday. In The Wizrd of Oz Dorothy is told to follow the Yellow Brick Road. She and Toto follow the path meeting characters like the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and The Lion. The characters represent the universe putting people in our life to help us along our path. Dorothy wason the path so she could find her way home and the universe was providing her with help along the way. What is our yellow brick road and who are we meeting along the way?
Dorothy, Scarecrow, Lion, Tin Man, and Toto find their path and recieve what they were searching for by heading the messages of the universe.
Your path is being set for you as you are receiving messages from source all the time. It is what you do with those messages that will keep you on the path. I remember when I began my journey and I am still on my journey and it is an everyday walk on my path to help other people excel. Since I have found this path there have been many resources revealed to me such as The Bible, The Four Agreements, How do You Know He’s Real, Soul Currency, and several othe readings. I have been connected to singers and ministers such as Janet Lee Kraft, spiritual teachers and guides like Sarah Spiritual, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, and several others. When you visit my facebook page you will see many of the friends on the page who are on their paths to spread a positive message and thus enhance the personal and professional lives of others.
Once you find your path it is important to stay on the path.
Many times you are seeking the path and it is right in front of you and all you have to do is put one foot in front of the other and walk out your door and look up and say Thank You thus creating an attitude of gratitude and be thankful for the opportunity to enhance your personal and professional life. In his book Soul Currency, Rev. Ernest Chu, speaks of being open to receive. Being open to begin your journey and to find your path is the first step in becoming a shining light to others.
Finding Your Purpose:
This is one of my favorite passages in the bible as it shows that there is a time for every purpose under heaven. The biggest challenge we face is finding our calling and moving forward to walk our talk and be a shining light of hope to others.
Some of the ways to find our purpose are:
1: Ask source waht are your plans for me?
2: Look for the messages that are being sent to you to define your purpose
3: Find the thinbgs you are passionate about?
4: Ask how can following my passion help me and help others?
5: Implement the tasks to fufill your passion and to follow your purpose
It is when you are on your path and following your purpose that greatness is achieved.
As you discover your path and your purpose continue to move forward and hear the messages that are being sent and look insode for the answers to questions as they arise and you will enhance your life.
