This is not a post about religious. Well I hope not anyway, as I begin to write I honestly have no idea what is coming… so stay tuned!
We are all seeking….. happiness….fulfilment…peace….love…. The next pair of Jimmy Choo shoes (joking!). In essence we are seeking to find our way home.
What does that look like? It will differ for each person but for me it’s a deep sense of certainty and relaxation, where I can fully exhale and surrender into life without a care in the world. I’m not going to lie, it’s something that’s been increasingly challenging to maintain during these crazy times when the powers that be want us anything but relaxed.
And this is the point. Everything we are looking for outside of us - to make us happy, fulfilled and vibrant will not be found ‘out there’.
As the saying goes happiness is an inside job. Nothing external will fill the gap, but rather the results that show up in your life are a result of the inner work.
If you’re looking for answers beyond your own heart you will be sadly disappointed. You’ll likely spend your entire life ‘searching’, pushing that little bit further and all the while becoming more and more distant to the actual truth of the matter.
Your connection to God can ONLY be found within you. Sure, spending time in nature can inspire you and enliven the creations of the universe, but it’s not the whole picture.
When I say God, do you recoil? What is your relationship to the universal creator of all that is? The universe, life, cosmos, energy, what ever name you wish to interchange. It doesn’t really matter, as I believe we are talking about the same thing.
Religion has done a very bad PR job on God that’s for sure. Follow the man made rules or you’ll be banished to hell. It’s not the most compelling sales line, eh?!
What it boils down to is that we are living and breathing in a creation which has certain laws. The majority of natural law is actually at odds with such teachings of the bible for example. Let’s take away the trigger words and dogmatic belief systems for a moment and get curious about how life really works.
If there really is a creator of ‘all that is’ what would he/she/it want? How would the world and the human soul be governed? By manmade laws and doctrines? Or by love?
In my personal experience I’m coming to experience that it’s the latter.
God isn’t some far distant guru on a pedestal. He isn’t punishing (that’s humans). We have got it all wrong. God has been here all along. In the place you never even thought to look. You just need to travel the 17 inches from your head to your heart to find out.
Breathe the change you wish to see in the world.
P.S. If you're ready to create a new empowering story for yourself, I have a couple of opportunities coming up.
I'll be launching a second round of the Breathwork Detox - a group programme to reset you back to Soul! Message me to get first dibs and an early bird discount when it launches.
If working 1:1 is your thing ask me about LIBERATION - a 3 month deep dive to reclaim your true self.
