The Path is the Goal, and We Are On the Path.
“If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another.
The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience.
If this sounds too mystical, refer again to the body. Every significant vital sign- body temperature, heart rate, oxygen consumption, hormone level, brain activity, and so on- alters the moment you decide to do anything… decisions are signals telling your body, mind, and environment to move in a certain direction.”
- Deepak Chopra from The Book of Secrets, Unlocking the Hidden Dimensions of Your Life
"There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that I experience."
There may be times that we feel indecisive when making decisions, as though we may make choices we will regret or that are "right" or "wrong". Of times where we find ourselves lost in the choices, lost in which direction to go, which path to choose at the fork in the road.
There is an underlying, fundamental understanding that may help in the process of rediscovering your personal flow, and finding your place in the flow of all that is. The thing is: that Source flows to accommodate each decision you make, each step you take. The Universe conspires in helping you move forth, whatever and wherever that is. And when you feel like you are questioning whether you are 'moving forth' or not, maybe look at your current life situation. Are you living the path of resistance, where things aren't flowing, bad and "unlucky" things happen to you left and right? Or are you living the path of least resistance, where life is flowing, synchronicities and "coincidences" are presenting themselves right to you?
There is truly no wrong path. Yes, in the short-term and on the surface level, you may feel as though you did things or said things you regret. In the end, however, it is all serving you on your path- the good, the bad, the in between.
Every moment, experience, and feeling is planting a seed within our consciousness and into the cosmos, into the next chapters of our life- into the flow of the Universe.
Sometimes we find ourselves caught up on the goal, caught up in our expectations of ourselves and others, disconnected from reality and all that is. We must realize: the journey is the goal. The path is the goal, and we are on the path. So with this perspective, we become more present with all the happenings, rather than stressing on what didn't go as planned, what did or didn't work out. The more present we are, the more magic and synchronicity we begin to (re)discover.
And maybe you are in a place where this synchronicity and magic is fading, or not present in your day-to-day. You may find that you are surrounded by negative energy, unhappy and lost in where you are and what you're doing. This is also an important part of the path that is telling you that you must make changes in what you are doing now: until you change what needs to be changed, your life will remain as it is. Until you take that step of deciding which way you want to go, you nor the flow/universe can take you where you want to go. And again, these times of darkness are just as important as the ups, as they are planting the seeds of transformation and the will to grow within the garden of our minds.
When we become more in alignment with our higher self, we are able to gracefully work with what is given to us because we hold the understanding that everything within our path is here to teach us - never hurting us, always serving us. That's the only way we've come this far anyway- from working with what we have - no? And from this space of being so present, we work even better with what we are given, we see more of the beauty in all that we have to work with. In this way we attract more abundance. We find that each decision we make is met with everything we need to accommodate that decision. We simply have to surrender to that, with a sense of acceptance and an openness to receive. The lumps of coal on our path may well be the diamond in disguise - there are no wrong decision, no failures.
Accept, believe, and receive. You are right where you need to be! Trust!!
"The Universe flows to accommodate each decision I make. Every decision I make is met with everything I need to move forth."
one love, xx.
