All paths start with some degree of ignorance. It has to really, be it; a path to search a new faith/religion, start a career or even incarnate into a new life here on earth. We as humans do well with finger pointing when it comes to calling someone else out on their limited knowledge in any one area of concern in life and especially when we are trying to deflect from our own ignorance or responsibility in the matter.
In my path to spiritual growth I can now look back and see my old habits in pointing the blame in situations concerning myself in response to my own ignorance. I never could see how I created my life as it was. I never could see how a child could have attracted so much negative or how as an adult I seemed to have attracted all the wrong people. Perhaps some of it I wrote my life story that way before incarnating and some of it I brought on to myself in my own negative thinking and refusal to see my responsiblity in any one given situation that I was upset about. Many times I wonder why God/Spirit could not help me more in finding my way, you know, give me the answers. Many times we want the answers or end result and seek others for Spiritual guidance or Psychic information walking away still feeling uneasy or that our questions went unresolved.
There are those of us too who seem to skate through life fluidly no matter what they do. Even if we deem their behavior as being deceitful or judgmental, one always wonder why they don't seem to struggle in any part of their life. They have moved through their life by the social/cultural norms and other than the normal life challenges and changes that we all go through they seem to bounce back and without much baggage, I may add. These people are the same who believe that their faith is THE faith, don't question the government too much and can't seem to think outside of those "little boxes" of daily life like; laws, rules, procedures, docterine, habits, schedules and routines. They are what I call our "Place Holders". They keep the "norms", normal part of life., making the rest of us questioning our not so normal life. They don't have to be rich, they can be from any part of the economical spectrum; rich or poor.
So what do I call the rest of us? Pot stirrers! Sometimes we are the quiet ones but we seem to go through life with one crisis after another but always seem to have a little bit of luck on our side. Nothing that gets us ahead but keeps us alfoat. Then you have the big pot stirrers, the ones who maybe made history or are in the news. They might seem weird to you; maybe even outrage you or perhaps they inspire you. Sometimes you might not even agree with them as they make changes to some degree or change is made merely because of their presense. I would use Obama as an example of the latter.
With that said, I don't want to focus on politics but what I do want to point out is the mass amounts of judgments being laid on Obama for perceiving that he has not enacted any change. It seems our lives in the U.S. have gotten worse and in many other countries because of him being in office but what people seem to forget is that we were on this path for many years. In fact the path has always been changing since the beginning of this country. What is right? What is wrong? Seems lately the media has been hitting hard on the participants of "Occupy Wall Street". They say that they are ignorant and don't understand what they are there for and don't understand the government or the true state of the economy. Maybe they don't but my point is that one reason we come into this life with NO KNOWLEDGE is to attain and disseminate knowledge from a different angle. If we came into every life with all the information fresh in our minds then we would never benefit from our experiences or make good change. For instance, if I get my bachelors in psychology and then 5 years later I am forced to repeat it over again, I will likely feel I have all the knowledge and not benefit from the new curriculum as I might if I had never taken those classes before. This applies to our life as we experience disruptions in our day to day such as divorce, a break up in a relationship or facing the worst scenario in a situation that has been progressing for some time. The people that are part of Occupy Wall Street know that it is time for change and while they might not have all the answers, they are not supposed to. They are shaking things up so it can be sorted out and without the old ways of doing things.
But whether this is about the economy, state of our country in general or personal, following your path to growth to any degree requires us to hit rock bottom or at least find our way through the dark for some time. God/Spirit/Universe knows that we need to learn by the destruction of the old memory or helping us see that what we were previously doing was not working for us.
At this time, our whole lives are changing on the macro level and for some of us currently we are also facing relationship, career and spiritual changes. We are changing by leaps in our personal lives as well as seeking change in our
communities and country! As a society in the U.S. alone, our "Place Holders" are losing ground and our "Pot Stirrers" are moving forward. The energies are steering all of us to change as we continue to get closer to 2012. We no longer need the old ways to lead our lives and our country because if we did we would not be moved to change. When the change is complete, in our country, Place Holders can
take back their rightly positions and maintain the "status quo" again albeit a
much better one! On a personal level, our souls are screaming; "get out of that relationship, get a new career, home school the kids, eat organic, find your inner happy!" There is one part of our "other knowing" that says, "do it!" and another part of our conscious knowing here on earth analyzing that feeling to change and causing fear (i.e. the dark). Perhaps some of us jumped into that change. Maybe some of us has one toe in the water but either way we are all feeling necessary change.
So how do we do that? We do that by letting go of our past and embracing the new information, support and love that is around us every day. We do that by having faith that our Soul knows, God knows and is surrouding us with signs and people to remind us of what we need to do as we cross paths with them. Have faith! God/Spirit doesn't really send us on our paths without any help although sometimes you may feel alone. We always have our Spirit Guides, Earth Angels and intution behind us to help light the way.
If your concern is about your own path right now, remember; even the darkest of times comes with a light. Go within your heart to find your lantern so you can see that you are surrounded by all that you need to continue your path, each other; Soulmates, Karmic Connection and maybe even your Twinflame. Dont' be worried about the how's, who's and what's, just find the love and lesson in it all and know that your path is only as bad or good as you think it to be. Wherever you are in life ask yourself; Do I need to be my own "place holder" or "pot stirrer" here? With love always, Lily Belle <3
