Loveology 101 — Step V: Follow the yellow brick road
You carved the path, cartogaphed the map, laid out the blueprint, now you follow it!
Too often we find ourselves trodding along our little path in life, and all has been well—but then something happens, tables turn, and you find yourself having one of those good `ole days or months plagued with a horrible array of WTF moments. When these days come we often forget that we know exactly where we desire to end up, and instead of utilizing our prepared map, we settle for remaining stagnant in those moments—sulking in our sorrows.
Follow the route you charted for yourself. You laid out a game plan of how you wanted to approach your journey—the steps you would take, the resources you will use, the relationships and networks you will nurture. When life knocks you off track, pick up your lessons and experiences, find your way back onto your path, and get back to your blueprint.
We say actions like the latter are easier said than done, but tell me truthfully…which is easier, getting knocked off your path, remaining stagnant with no forward progression and enduring a constant cycle of routinely purposeless and lackluster living …or… rising up, brushing off the dirt from the fall, gathering your experiences and lessons learned and deciding to venture back into the brilliant unknown toward a destiny you wrote for yourself.
Two juxtaposed options, requiring two contrasting actions, with two drastically different outcomes—and one YOU to decide how you’re gonna act…helpless or powerful.
For me, rising up despite all adversity and misfortunes is the only way to truly live. Sure you can make the decision to wallow in your misery and manage to survive until death bids you to join Him. Nevertheless, choosing this option will prove itself to be an oh so much more painful and daunting task. As a result, you’ll be in a constant attempt to convince your higher self that it is just as comfortable as your lower self or fleshly self with merely existing and being acted upon as opposed to being an active participant in the manifestation of your own destiny.
You will never convince your higher being that you are happy not fulfilling your purpose—so, follow your crafty map my Love! Walk your walk with love, and step into your light with confidence and sure faith.
