Its your road, and yours alone.
Others may walk it with you,
but no one can walk it for you. ~Rumi
I don’t know who wrote it, but there is a quote I love, and it goes something like,
“We are the ones we are waiting for.”
By constantly looking outside yourself, you never find the hidden treasure that lays within. There isn’t a facilitator that can do this for you, not one Reiki Master that can heal you, not one priest that can absolve you, monk who can lead you forward, you have to do it.
All great spiritual teachers understand that first principal, that all spiritual journeys begin with the small self surrendering to the larger Self.
It’s a humbling experience, giving everything to everything, but a necessary step in spiritual unfolding. True surrender has no agenda, no need for acclaim, there is no room for egoic gain. Surrender requires only courage, and a trust in something bigger. You have to do the asking, and you have to be willing to receive the answers that come, remembering that those answers will come from the inside too.
