Spirituality – stagnation vs change

Know Yourself is a spiritual path full of wonder and guidance.

There comes a time in our lives that we start searching for a new way to express ourselves within the ambit of our lives. A time when we become disgruntled with the way things are going and intrigued by new thoughts and ideas. This period can come during good times and bad times. It does not matter whether you are doing well or going through a valley in your life. Discontentment comes and stays when the time is right. One has a choice to investigate and change or suppress these feelings and urges.

Why would you want to suppress these feelings;? Because people have an instinctive knowing that they mean change and upheaval. You anticipate stressful times and suppress the urges for a while. If you are aware you will also notice that these feelings present themselves in every possible situation in your life. When it becomes a pattern you have to make a choice; either go with the gentle guidance of your destiny or if you are stubborn or have your head stuck in the ground like an ostrich, prepare yourself for extreme measures.

Those who are aware and alive and open will recognize the opportunity and will act on it while the going is manageable. Whether they respond with thought and knowledge or react with annoyance, some sort of movement has to take place. Until you get the hang of it and do something constructive about your situation and these urges, you will be besieged by little ‘devils’ that keep on presenting themselves at times you can ill afford them around, in order to force you into action.

So, before extreme measures are set into motion, we should sit back and contemplate what is happening and why it is happening and what we can do about it.

This process is more manageable when you know yourself.

“The future is not some place we are going, but one we are creating. The paths are not to be found, but made. And the activity of making them changes both the maker and their destination.” — John Schaar

“Spiritual growth is not made in reaction against, for all striving against imposed restrictions is imaginary. Spiritual growth is accomplished by inclination toward. We grow like the sunflower, following the light.” — Joy Houghton
