I often wonder what keeps me from getting from point A to point B. Let’s say I’m driving from the east coast to the west coast. The reason. I want to see how blue the ocean is there, to soak my feet in the warm salty water, to be transformed and renewed. To be as I once was, a mermaid.
So what happens on the journey across our vast country? Distractions. Doesn’t matter which highway I take something will call out my name. “Look at me!” it teases. And a dialogue between me and the other me takes place;
“It’s only this one time and you’ll never pass this road again.”
“If you stop, you’ll never see the blue ocean.”
“Humph. The ocean’s not going anywhere. What’s your rush?”
“Yes, but you’ll never join your family of mermaids.”
“Aww, you’re such a drag.”
Life is a constant battle between what you want and what you’ll settle for. Of course, at the time you don’t think you’re settling for anything. You convince yourself in any way you can that you made the right choice. Some label it as resistance, fear or excuses. Doesn’t matter what it’s called. End result, you didn’t get to point B. Your true destination. At least, that’s been my experience.
If I follow the voice that loves to ride the wind, it can be exciting while that moment lasts. But, if I choose the more difficult road and listen to that other voice that sits deep inside me, the one that touches the universe, I can create anything. That's the power of your heart song, it sings of your true purpose, your true destination. If you don’t feed the song in your heart it will die and a part of you will as well.Here's a short mediation video by Tara Stiles Yoga you may find useful. Basically, see the distraction, say hi and bye and return to your breathing.
So, what’s your destination? Are you on it or distracted? What are your distractions? What is your method of keeping on track?
Till next time,
