Finding Your Place Within

“Where do you go for direction? Don’t bother answering because it’s an absurd question. It’s different for everyone. The importance is, from my own experiences, knowing that direction is being given. And, on some level, you are taking notes as you put one foot in front of the other. When someone tells you a joke do you sit and try to understand why the joke is being told or do you just laugh out of instinct? When you hear a sad story do you have to digest all aspects of it before opting for a response or do you automatically cry? You don’t think, you feel. You are without knowing why and yet you accept it, yourself, as part of the package of life.”

excerpt from DAILIES by C. A. Filius


Guidance is a funny thing. I often have clients come to me asking Spirit to hand over a step-by-step Playbook of their lives. Hey, who wouldn’t love such a luxury? It removes the guesswork and allows us to cruise on autopilot. The electronic age has certainly provided a virtually endless supply of devices that have put our brains on hold. How many phone numbers do you have committed to memory?

“What’s Frank’s number?” you ask. “5!” they reply. Sorry, but speed-dial isn’t always the best option.

We must–and I cannot stress this enough–participate in our own lives. We have to make decisions, we have to interact with others. There’s no escaping it. It’s OK to get stuck in traffic once-in-a-while. If anything it gives you a chance to slow down and take in your surroundings. You may be surprised at what you see. Don’t waste your time taking all of the side streets because you cannot stand the idea of traffic congestion. Cruise the streets of your life and live! That’s where your answers reside, you know? Within the fun of it all. If you’re saying, “I don’t know how to have fun!” then you should spend some time figuring out WHY instead of expecting someone, physical or spiritual, passing you a note in class. Term papers do not write themselves. Books do not read themselves. Hearts do not beat by themselves. Your passions–even the pursuit of them–are the fuel that you need. If ‘regular’ isn’t giving you the mileage you want then it’s time for an upgrade to ‘premium,’ don’t you think?

You cannot be given the answer for you ARE the answer!
