Still On the Path

Still On the Path "It is never too late to be what you might have been." ~George Eliot

I have been on a conscious journey of personal growth and development since my sojourn in Iowa. That time period includes some magnificent years spent in Iowa City, Iowa. I was there, ostensibly, to attend graduate school but I was really there to get on the path to fulfilling my dharma, my spiritual mission, although I did not know it then. What I found there was freedom: to explore people, oracles, spiritualities, groups, events, workshops, channelers, crystals, new age music, alternative therapies, holistic health modalities - all in the service of finding out who I am and what I am here to do. It was, essentially, the best time of my life, thus far.

"Living a spiritual life may not be easy. It demands total authenticity. It brings you to dance to a unique song that only you can hear fully, and sometimes you dance alone because no others can hear the music."
― Debra Moffitt

I'm still on that journey many years later. I have grown in knowledge and wisdom. I am more in tune with the deeper part of my being - that which biblical scriptures define as, "Christ in you, your hope of glory." I am on a path of Truth in service to the All-Good, to Love. I embrace all that is good and true and leans toward optimism. I see and understand more than I ever did, which leads me to see how much I really do not know in the grand scheme of things. Still, the grandness of this whole adventure excites. The magnificence of the "Plan" lures. I'm in for the long haul-and with bells.

What I know is that this is a journey I will be on until the day I die. What a relief! I'm in no real rush to get anywhere.

"Let one who seeks not stop seeking until that person finds."
― T. Scott McLeod, All That Is Unspoken

I understand that I am in process. I am in development.

At the end of the day I am more of all I am growing to be. At the end of all obstacles, trouble, even past forgetfulness of who I really am, I am still more. My potential is unlimited. That's the beauty of this growing thing. I do it despite myself. What a glorious gift I've been given! Who knows what I will be? Who knows how that will look? Not me. Those periodic days that I think I am too old, that it is too late for me, I eventually snap-to and ask myself, "For what? To whom?" I have all the time in the world, inasmuch as time seems to be real on this-here planet.

One thing I do know is that I continue to delight in moving forward on the journey.

And that is sure to be worth it all. As Maya Angelou says in one of her many books, a collection of essays, also titled, "I wouldn't take nothing for my journey now."
