#BellaSundayMeditation: “Walking The Road Alone”
Please excuse the lateness of my post… I think that perhaps I needed the events of today to transpire to better conceptualize this message.
THE BACK STORY: Everyday for a week, I’ve received a sign confirming the message that I received on the New Moon. Two of the signs included messages in fortune cookies – which I NEVER pay attention to – but both were given to me by an inspiring stranger who is now an acquaintance (so I feel as if they were meant to be placed in my hands).
One read, “You will become a great leader of the community,” and the one today said, “You have strong spiritual powers + you should choose to develop them…” I’m actually going to keep today’s fortune to remind me of the message, which is…. “WALKING THE ROAD ALONE.” (Sorry for the lengthy introduction)
THE MESSAGE: As you travel along your Life’s road, there will be stretches where you will have no one to share it with. Now, this doesn’t mean that you’ll actually (physically) be alone, it just means that there will be places (physically AND metaphorically) where your friends cannot come. It could be that its simply time for your road to diverge (and maybe your roads will cross again in the future) – or it could be that you need to learn whatever’s being directed, ALONE. For instance, in every child’s Life there are experiences that shape the way they think, feel, act + perceive the world, and in essence, “molds” them into the adult they become. However, just because we’re adults doesn’t mean the molding stops. WE (us, me you) are wet clay + the energy we emit and absorb, IS constantly shaping our destiny + consciousness.
So, although we may have a team, one should never get too attached to the idea of “togetherness,” that you miss your individual calling. Think of yourself as the King on the chessboard and everyone else as the other pieces… “Pawns” are not (and never will) make it to the end of the game with you, but your Queen is (almost) a constant fixture. Disclaimer: This does NOT mean that you should use people + discard them, but it DOES mean that in order to “win” the game, you need to discover everyone’s true place in your Life.
Only YOU are in charge of the road you travel. Don’t miss your “turn” because of someone else. Branch off and IF other people follow, then they follow. BUT the key is, be comfortable enough NOT to look back + see if they’re there. YOU’RE THERE + you’re all that matters. Namaste
