This last week I was in Austin, Texas exploring the possibility of relocating there from Oregon. What has led me to check out this particular place has been an innate guidance system inside that has consistently informed me when I am on track for what is sometimes referred to as the Divine Design of ones life.
I haven’t always trusted this innate system, which is often called our intuition, or guidance from the heart – our feelings. In fact, on this very trip there was a choice that I made that was completely separate from my own GPS – and it was made vividly clear that I was “going the wrong direction”. ( For more on this experience go to NaturalWealthJournal.com to the post “Negotiating The Overpass – Creating Another Game” )
Wouldn’t you pay attention if the GPS in your car came on and said “What the heck do you think you are doing?? I told you not to go here and you didn’t listen! Now you are lost in a game that is not of your own creation. You weren’t supposed to be here in the first place, and I insist that you pay attention to me NOW!”
Well, we all know that the GPS system in our cars (and within us) is much more polite than that, and when we do make errors in the direction that will get us to where we are to go, it kindly (yet sometimes quite strongly!) gives us alternatives to follow. We are always well taken care of in that way and we trust that we will always get to where we want to go when we are paying attention. Lapses in this attention pay off in lessons well learned – like course corrections.
I am here to tell you that your own inner GPS system is just like that if only listened to and trusted. This guidance comes from the messages of the heart – our feelings – and our intuition which never – I mean never – steers us wrong. What if you trusted that your life is unfolding in a natural manner and you took all actions from that inner GPS?
Here is what my friend Richard Cawte says about this: “Keep driving. Trust the pilot. The pilot is the part of you inextricably in tune with the brushtrokes…as well as the pots of gold…and the seamless electrical circuit that brings health to your cells…It’s you, God, everything. At the same time, it’s each atom in each cell of your body. Trust in that intricate design, much as you trust your lungs to inflate with the next breath, and the next…There is PLENTY OF OXYGEN for us all…”
So, I leave you now to play with your own innate GPS. In order to Be The Change we must listen, trust and take action from this unique wise inner director….or have an experience that reminds us what it feels like to be “lost” in someone else’s game. It’s all good!
