A Map of Life’s Spiritual Journey

A map of life’s spiritual journey. They are:

1. You’re a victim.We are virtually all born feeling we are powerless.
Most of us stay that way.We think the world is out to
get us: the government, the neighbors, the society, the bad
guys in whatever form they seem to take.We don’t feel we
have any influence.We’re the effect of the rest of the world’s
cause.We gripe, complain, protest, and gather in groups to
fight those in charge of us. Except for a party now and then,
life, in general, sucks.

2. You’re in control. At some point you see a life-changing
movie, like The Secret, or you read a book, such as The Attractor
Factor or The Magic of Believing, and you wake up to your
own power.You realize the power of setting intentions.You
realize the power you have to visualize what you want, take
action, and achieve it.You begin to experience some magic.
You start to experience some cool results. Life, in general,
begins to look pretty good.

3. You’re awakening. At some point after stage two, you begin to
realize your intentions are limitations.You begin to see that
with all your newfound power, you’re still not able to control
everything.You begin to realize that when you surrender
to a greater power, miracles tend to happen.You begin to
let go, and trust.You begin to practice, moment by moment,
awareness of your connection with the Divine.You learn to
recognize inspiration when it comes to you, and you act on
it.You realize you have choice but not control of your life.
You realize the greatest thing you can do is agree to each
moment. In this stage, miracles happen, and they constantly
astonish you as they do.You live, in general, in a constant
state of amazement,wonder, and gratitude.

I’ve entered the third stage, and maybe you have, too, by now.
Since you’ve come along for the ride with me, let me try to further
explain my own awakening. It may help prepare you for what you
will soon experience, or help you better understand what you are
currently experiencing.
