‘If you are the captain of the Titanic where is your primary focus, on the icebergs or the passageway?’ ~ Lynda Austin
Whenever something is taken away from us we can be sure that we no longer need it. Yet, it is difficult to let things go, especially those things we are emotionally attached to or which offer security. In this time of global change, it is easy and natural for loss and fear to become our primary focus.
On a human level we feel the challenge of losing something of value. On a soul level we feel the opportunity to create the space for a deeper, more authentic aspect of our Self to be born into our existence. Loss becomes gain. Challenge becomes opportunity. It is a matter of perspective. Where is your primary focus, on the iceberg or the opening being created in front of you?
Currently, we are being asked to re-prioritize our life, to ask ourselves new questions such as: What is really important to me? What is my life really about? Who am I?
If life were to stay the same we may never inquire into such questions. We would continue the way we always have, caught up in the business (busy-ness) of life, lost in the status quo, distracted from life’s real agenda.
The little agenda in life is your career, relationships, money and health. These are gateways for the real agenda: The awakening of your soul.
Life has bigger plans for us. It moves us towards the awakening of our soul. Often this requires rocking the boat of the little agendas in our life we are so attached to. Our life situations then become the gateways, the opportunities, to fulfill our real purpose for being here.
This time of change requires us to surrender to a deeper relationship with life and ourselves. It is an opportunity to ride the wave that is being brought to us as best we can, and to trust it will take us to the shore where we have firmer ground beneath us. It is there we can stand on the rock, our soul.
