A Path of your Own

by Beth Haley

Defining your own way in today’s spiritual practices.

How do you really want to feel right now? And, how do you plan to get there? The answers say a lot about what you want and need.

Sometimes when we are navigating a spiritual path, we see it looking a certain way. Maybe our vision of “arriving” looks like someone who only wears yoga pants, meditates 10 hours a day, who dances with fairies, is calm, speaks in a hushed tone, and who has changed their name to, “Pink Unicorn.”

Spiritual freedom, to one person, may be dropping their shorts for a room full of strangers at a nudist retreat. Hey, you won’t be strangers for long! However, this isn’t for everyone.

If this isn’t for you, and you find that you don’t fit the “spiritual movement” or “mold”, does that really make you less fulfilled or spiritual? Of course not, right!?

“One man’s meat is another man’s poison.” Lucretius

Perhaps these things really are what someone else’s happiness looks like. That doesn’t mean that’s what it will look like for you.

Follow your own path. What does your happiness look like and feel like?

Visualize it and use your senses: see it, feel it, taste it, hear it and smell it: and then make a game plan on how to get there.

And by all means, if dropping your shorts for a nudist gathering is what does it for you, then more power to you!

I for one, will be found at the local library, clothed, and taking notes for my ongoing growth pilgrimage.
