What is Calling?
When I consider the number of roles I have and positions I have worked as an adult I see that we develop and change towards our Calling. In life we may have had many roles as employees, as a family member that has change into a new way of connecting or a responsibility we didn’t even expect for ourselves as we are drawn to the Path in Life we now tread.
Sometimes we lose the footing a little and that is OK. Sometimes we need a little alignment to navigate back to the Path. The greatest tool for navigation is the Heart. When we deeply listen to what the Heart Desires we know we are living a true existence. When we find it hard to negotiate, feel exhausted or under valued by the world around us, this is when we could do with some Heart based navigation.
When I forget to drop into the Heart as my compass I am untethered in this world. I need time and space to check my Path, see where I am leading myself, see what is leading me, listen to myself and who is listening to me. To witness and observe the route I am on and with whom I am traveling with. All this takes time, space and a map for the journey ahead.
I may need to reminisce and the past can be a place of seeing and evaluating the journey so far. No journey has ever been without a lesson or a reason and I am grateful for all those I have met as my Teachers now I see the Path more clearly. There is also a need to clear away old baggage and worn out shoes from this great Path. To reassess what worked and what did not. There is also the treasure of the knowledge gained so far that is of value not just to me but to others I now meet along the Way. Journeying can be a venture done Alone or with others, All-One.
Here is a meditation I have prepared to begin the next phase of this Journey on the Path.
