You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself.—-Galileo Galilei
The quote for this week is by Galileo Galilei and I thought it was so fitting because it’s so true but also because it fits with the spiritual awakening that I have currently been experiencing. Lately, I have been feeling and beginning to acknowledge that everything I have been through has been for a reason and that none of my experiences were ever good or bad. They were just experiences that allowed me to learn lessons about myself, life and others. Experiences that taught me to release the mentality that life was composed of duality, of good vs. evil or right vs. wrong, and for me to just walk my journey lovingly, loving myself, others and all of life’s sticky situations
And I have to say that from my awakening I feel so happy and I feel, for the first time in a long time, like myself. I am getting back to my roots. I am enjoying every moment of my life, and it is eye-opening because it has shown me how unhappy I truly was. I was going through life checking off all of the boxes that society, and well-meaning adults, wanted me to check off, but I wasn’t happy. I was living for others and just doing what was expected. I was going through the motions for the longest and now I am living for me. And I may not know how long this new journey will be or how long or short it will take to get to where I truly wish to go, but I do know that I am trying, growing and evolving on all levels and that this new journey is for me, authentically me.
And I am so very thankful and grateful now that I am being my authentic self and that I am honoring my true self and who I am. I am excited to take on this new chapter of my life, and I am ready to go WAYYY outside of my comfort zone. And I know this may sound weird, but I am ready for more responsibility in my life. I am ready to acknowledge that I create my life, my destiny, and my happiness. I am acknowledging that I can have and manifest anything that I desire. So, this new chapter entails me perfecting my manifesting skills, showing gratitude for all that I have and am, and welcoming the law of attraction into my life.
And I truly feel as if my life has come full circle and that all of my life experiences and the people I have met along my journey thus far have helped me find the power, the passion and the love within myself. I am so thankful and grateful for all of the amazing beings that have walked with me on my journey. I am very thankful and grateful for all of my experiences, which are neither good or bad, but just lessons that I desired to learn to help me grow, evolve, and love myself.
And I acknowledge that it is very scary to embark upon a new adventure, but it is even scarier to remain stagnant, to never evolve or grow and to choose to live a life for others. So, here I go, embarking upon a journey that allows me to be me, that wants me to be me, that pushes me to love myself and to look within. I am so excited for what’s to come, and it truly is AN END OF AN ERA!
So, as Galileo says, “you cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself”, and that I have. I hope all of you are embarking upon adventures of courage and are choosing to define your life the way you wish for it to look. And whether you deem an adventure or experience with others as good or bad, just acknowledge that the person and that experience taught you a useful piece of information that will help you along the path of your courageous adventure. I wish you all the best and I hope you all experience your own awakenings that will bring the true you to the surface. Wishing you all peace, love, and happiness on your adventures through life.
