When we can’t see the big picture (which is all the time, truthfully), all we can do is take the next aligned step on our path of mystery.
One very big or infinitesimally small step in the direction of our true Yes in the moment will always take us where we need to go, even if it doesn’t seem like it at the time.
This is what it looks like to live our purpose. One foot in front of the other, guided by our Heart.
Whenever I look back on those moments of feeling confused or lost, an aligned step forward was always the solution, and it led me somewhere better than I would have been able to imagine from my vantage point.
Sometimes the steps have been simple and small, like eating an orange or taking a bath or posting on Facebook. Sometimes they have been complicated like signing a lease on a house I couldn’t afford or taking a trip that made no sense to me or quitting my career.
I’ve never regretted a single one.
Whenever I take that step I feel new levels of energy and vitality coursing through me. When I stay in a loop of analysis paralysis, trying to predict and game the future, I feel dead inside.
It is so much easier and always possible to figure out the next step than it is to map out the entire journey (which will always change as life unfolds).
Whenever one of my clients or friends feels stuck, I invite them to follow the whispers of Yes moment by moment to see what magic wants to unfold. (And sometimes I need reminders too).
My Heart is my Guru and always (eventually) leads me to the Light.
