Step Out into the Unknown with Ease




From Denny: This photo and quote reminds me of the ancient mystery schools where the spiritual path was taught over decades. Students did not expect to learn spiritual principles in a few months of study. Students did not expect to interact with spiritual energy on the highest levels within a few years. Students did not expect to wield spiritual power until their egos were well disciplined, honed into perfect obedience to Spirit.

A true student of the spiritual path accepts early on that Life is truly a journey. This journey involves the unexpected and the unplanned. Life is not always as orderly as our emotions and left brain sense of the world would prefer. :)

In order to maintain our balance - or regain it quickly - it's important to root ourselves in the present - the Now - and not focus upon even what happened a few moments ago or what might happen in our future.

What was it Einstein taught? When we focus upon those subatomic particles they actually move in relation to our thoughts and expectations. That observation from a mathematician and physicist should make us aware of how much our expectations affect our daily lives.

It's those expectations and emotions that get in the way of being able to see clearly down our path. Leave them on the side of the road and your journey becomes more joyful as you glide from one moment to the next with ease.

Read what Dr. Martin Luther King had to say on the subject of courage and faith.

Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step." - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
