WHICH IS MY PATH?

“We go to God, and the path is straight. Only if we attempt to wander can there be delay, and needless wasted time on thorny byways.” A Course In Miracles

We often choose the wrong way because the right way looks wrong to us. It’s not until we have made our choice and seen our mistake that we choose again. Or just as often, we keep on the wrong path trying to force and manipulate it into being the right path. This is exhausting and never works.

Sometimes things don’t work out simply because it’s the wrong place or the wrong person or the wrong time. We can do this struggle for what we believe is right for us our entire life and be tired and unfulfilled and confused at the end of it. Or we can just learn whatever we can learn from it and then give up. To the ego giving up is a sign of weakness. To God giving up is powerful and honorable and loving. For it means that we are no longer trusting in our weakness, but in God’s strength.

As we travel the path of most resistance we ask God for help but He doesn’t seem to hear us. We believe this is our path, why isn’t it working? Everyone and everything is blocking our way. If we sincerely want to know the answer, we will hear it. It will come to us as a gentle whisper, a knowing nudge, “It’s not everyone who is mistaken, Dear Heart. It is you. Here is your path. Take my hand and step here.”

“God leads you steadily along the path of freedom, teaching you how to disregard or look beyond everything that would hold you back.” A Course In Miracles

And there before us, clearly lit, is our very own path. Smiling faces greet us and welcoming hands reach out to help us. As soon as we are open and ready the struggle ends. There may be struggles in other areas where we are still learning, but never when we are where we need to be. If we follow the signs of our true calling with an open mind and willing heart, life just gets simpler. Peace comes more readily with God as our Guide.

This doesn’t mean we won’t have to work on our path. It doesn’t mean there won’t be challenges. We mustn’t confuse struggle with work. Struggle is stressful. Work is rewarding and leads us to the next opportunity for our learning and our growing. Whoever needs us will be brought to us and whoever and whatever we need will be brought to us as well.

Now when we come up against road blocks we ask for help instead of bull dozing through them on our own. It means we grow quiet and smile and breathe as we surrender the blocks so they can either be removed or transformed as we continue to be led on our very own path.

“Indeed, your pathway is more certain still. For it can not be possible to change the course of those whom God has called to Him.” A Course In Miracles
