Welcome to Jim Phillips’ Wednesday Wisdom for August 15th! Each Wednesday, WU World Changer Jim Phillips will share some mid-week wisdom for you to ponder and embrace!
“There is no right path or wrong path, there is your path. Follow it.”
How different would your experience of life be if you accepted that no matter what choices you make you are always on your life path?
Would you feel less stress or fear because you have now eliminated all expectations held by yourself or others, as to how your life is to be lived? Or would you experience more stress or fear because you now realize you are fully responsible for your life path?
Somewhere along the line, we have come to believe that our life path is something we discover as we venture through life, even confusing it with what we believe to be our life’s purpose or calling. The truth is we embark upon our life path the moment we enter this world.
“Your life purpose is not your calling; however, your calling does serve your life purpose, all of which is an element of your life path.”
We won’t wake up one day and suddenly discover our life path. However, waking up on that day is another experience on our life path. We won’t suddenly start to walk a spiritual path. We will continue along our life path with a greater awareness and understanding of our spirituality. We won’t veer off in a new direction where one path ends, and another begins. We will explore, embrace and experience all that life presents as we venture along the path that is unfolding.
Our life path consists of the cumulative, successive experiences we choose and create in each unfolding moment.
It is every decision we make, every step we take and every experience we create. Each experience along our life path offers the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the truth of who we are.
Often, we observe how another’s life is unfolding and try to live as that person lives. Or we have been told and accept that if we don’t live a certain way we will be denied the end of life’s great reward and endure untold suffering.
Life is not about mastering the life of another, regardless of who they are or were.
It is embracing our unique path as it unfolds beautifully, and in perfection, for the life we choose to live.
However, if we do choose to emulate the life of another, that too becomes an experience on our life path. There are over seven billion life paths currently being followed on this planet, all of which are unique to each Soul, perfect for each Soul, and all of which lead to the same destination. The realization and experience of the Truth of who we are.
“There is no right path or wrong path, there is your path. Follow it boldly, unapologetically and truthfully.”
