Giving advice or guidance that is born of experience is likened to an explorer who found a way from here to there then created a road map for others. The road map would help those interested in venturing further into the great unknown.
Our consciousness is like a vast territory waiting to be discovered. The beauty of explorers who have gone before us is this:
They can share their experience from pitfalls to victories. Sharing from the heart of true experience provides plenty of gems to help us grow.
However, it is always up to us to identify what resonates true for us in the “now” because we may not be ready for some pearls of wisdom until much later or ever. When we choose to accept the love and wisdom, that currently rings true, into our heart we will discover a deeper sense of inner strength and courage supporting our growth. We find ourselves making healthy growth promoting decisions as we venture deeper within the vast expanse of our own consciousness. We will eventually come to discover our own inner healer.
Sometimes a teacher does nothing more than point the way.
The rest is up to us. One thing after another unfolds. We move forward, deeper, and truer with growing conviction to be all that we are and have always been. There comes a time when we come to see your own experiences for what they are, no more denial, no more pretending. When we are ready to explore this territory we can and will embrace the understanding that comes with it. These are the moments when we are giving ourselves the gift of transformation. Transforming our awareness, our energy fields and ourselves from a lower vibrational resonance to a higher vibration. Once the new higher frequency of energy stabilizes within us our outer world reflection begins to reveal a new form, a new shape.
If you are in a position to give advice, make certain you are open-hearted and kind whether or not others follow your guidance. There is no way for any one to know what is right for another or when they are ready.
Experience speaks volumes and it shows in the way we live our life, the way we handle unexpected situations, how we act during times of success and failure, the way we treat our body, the way we treat others and so on. True experience in the realm of spiritual growth shows itself in people. Be the wisdom you share. Be the love that you are. The transformation within is, in itself, the sharing of wisdom.
Information without transformation does little to create change:
It would be of little value to give great advice and not live it. That happens when we have not yet had real experience in the area where advise is given and not lived. Information without transformation does little to create the changes in life one so desires. We must feel, live, remain open, honest and experience transformation for change in life to be sustainable. Everyone’s journey is unique but that should not stop anyone from learning from others who have walked before us. Learning is the acquisition of knowledge or skills through experience, practice, or study. We must actualize knowledge so it grows to become a well spring of wisdom that guides our every thought, word and deed.
In our time we have lost the connection of wisdom sharing from our ancestors. We live in a time where many people are simply regurgitating what they have read. For our lives to reflect the love that we are, to live life whole, happy and free we must delve deeper. We must allow for the experience of growth to be felt, understood and integrated within ourselves and into our daily life. We must do what we feel is the right thing to do even if it is not popular with friends or family.
May this year of 2013 find you bold in your growth, in your ability to shine your light, share your talents, your love and your wisdom through your actions.
May this year resonate with peace throughout the world
It all begins with you and me.
love and peace, Astara
