Note: I usually try to limit my posts to one or two per week, but something is urging me to put this one out a bit ahead of time…so here it is anyway!
One of the biggest changes I’ve experienced over the past few years has been a newfound ability to move past the limitations of worry and fear. In the not so distant past, global conflict, the poisoning and pillaging of our Earth and its natural resources, economic collapse, and natural disaster were among my greatest concerns. After several years of being heavily weighed down by my responsibility for my own survival—as well as that of my family, I finally reached a tipping point. I’d finally had enough of the drama, the distractions, and the “doom and gloom” scenarios with which I’d become so obsessed.
While I’ve always had an interest in the metaphysical side of things—and a profound curiosity about our true nature, after being forced to take a good, hard look at my perceived mortality, I realized the issue wasn’t one of survival. It was an issue of spiritual awakening and awareness instead. Amazingly, it took the negative focus, concern, and fear of struggle and death to urge me into a re-examination of my true purpose in life. Through this reconsideration, I discovered that I had a choice. I could continue living under the dense, heavy control of these lower thoughts and emotions—or I could transcend them by embracing a new, more positive way of looking at things.
My shift in focus reminded me that this life is only temporary. It’s just a small part of our overall experience. Since consciousness is eternal and doesn’t die when our physical body dies, there’s no need to worry about survival! Once I’d managed to set myself free from that limitation (and it’s quite a significant one, I’m sure you’ll agree), my focus naturally shifted toward the discovery of my true purpose for being here—at this particular place and time.
I soon began spending a great deal of time—as much as I possibly could, delving deeply into the topics of spirituality and metaphysics. I researched thousands of articles and videos on the internet, ordered and read dozens of books, and watched scores of DVDs and recorded documentaries. These all brought me to a much greater understanding of myself and our true nature as Human Beings.
I now spend dedicated time each day, quietly seeking my own personal connection to “Higher Self” (as I suggest in my post, “Finding Peace”). As a result, I’ve been amazed to see the affects in my personal life—and indeed, the “external world”. With my greater understanding of self and our collective reality, I’ve worked my way through and resolved a number of long-held and negative beliefs, ideas, and habits (for more information and suggestions, see my post “Spirit Anchors”). I’ve also found a number of creative ways through which I may do my part to bring about constructive change—in fact, one of the ways I hope to accomplish this is through the writing of this blog.
While I’m still working diligently at self-improvement and there’s a great deal of work left to do on all fronts, I AM energized and encouraged by my progress thus far. I’ve managed to transcend many of my own limitations and I now know that those remaining only do so on borrowed time. I’ve learned that the only limitations I face are the ones I’ve either placed upon myself or the ones I’ve allowed others to place on me. I also know that if I can overcome just one of these limitations, I have the ability to overcome all of them.
To be completely honest, I may not be quite ready to leap tall buildings in a single bound right at this exact moment—but as I often say, “Anything is Possible!”—and who knows what miracles tomorrow may bring?
