” Woman At Crossroads” –There are those times in all of our lives when we come to a Crossroad…do I go left or right? This job or that one? Chemo or no chemo? Live or die?
You would think that after 79 years of living this human drama, a woman would be spared life’s complexities and dilemmas. That one’s sunset years could be spent in play; drumming, dancing on the summer grass, experiencing only the joys of life…loving…simply being…
That’s not the way of this journey in the Third Dimension. And I am finally learning to embrace Life’s challenges; to welcome each Crossroad, regardless of how challenging a choice I must make as I continue on this twisting, winding journey of unexpected events, people and circumstances.
These days, when I reach that inevitable Fork In The Road, I find my Spirit Companions right there waiting for me. Mother Goddess, my Guardian Angel, my Orisha, Elegua…and Love ItSelf. Right there in the Silence of my heart…waiting for me to ask: Which Path is my path to Fulfillment of Purpose in being in this Here-Now? All it takes is the asking. The acknowledgement that I DO NOT KNOW. And in that surrender to a Wisdom higher than my human Ego, I am led; step by step, day by day, breath by breath into a new and expanded experience of being human on planet earth.
Let us never forget that the Ancestors are always here to guide us. We need only to stop pretending that we have the answers…and ASK. Ashe.
Sitting at my Healing Altar in my Sacred Space is a daily ritual. Were it not for the time spent each day sitting in the Silence surrounded by my Companions-in-Spirit, I would surely be a mad woman. As it is, this daily ritual anchors me to the Divine within; and sets the Tone and Energy of my day. And each day, one step at a time, I move slowly towards total and complete At-One-Ment with That Which Causes All There Is Into Being. I am learning that life is a process and that “God” is who I am.
I am discovering that the answer to any of life’s dilemmas can be found on the opposite side of the question. And the only way to flip the shit is to ask the question; and then wait patiently for the answer to “come through” into physical reality and your own personal experience—from the inside out.
Remember, if you already knew the answer, you’d be experiencing it.
Accept that you don’t know what to do and that the answer does not lie within your human, individual, ego-consciousness. That there is a Consciousness beyond the ego that knows all there is to know: KNOWLEDGE ITSELF.
Test this. What do you have to lose? Ask within in the Inner Silence. Then put the problem or question out of mind as you go about your daily business…
