What’s in a word?

I used to take words so literally, assigning very specific meanings, ideas and concepts to words I heard in someone’s speech or read in someone’s writing.

All these beliefs came from my conditioned mind and I never thought to question the judgements that came along with words, so much of my past influencing them.

It wasn’t until I had been awakened that I started getting caught up in my own use of words.

I still find myself seeking for just the right ones, but with so much history attached to certain kinds of language, I’m at a loss of which ones to use.

But there are no “right” words.

Because they are just words.

With this struggle to find words to describe the truth that I understand today, because of my old rigid standards and definitions attached to them, it became less about words and more about truth behind them.

When I listen to people now, or read or listen to spiritual teachings that use different types of language, I listen for what’s behind the words.

I pay attention to the energetic vibration or feeling intended.

I now just use words interchangeably.

It’s not so much about the language used.

For example, sometimes I say God, the universe, soul, spirit, being or knowing.

It try not to get stuck on one way of describing ideas.

I’m open minded and flexible.

It matters less to me now than ever, because truth is truth no matter how it’s expressed.

Answers

All the answers I need are within me.

How do I find my place in the world? How do I find and understand my purpose?

First I must become aware of which voice is the voice of my being. I must learn to not identify with and allow my thinking to get in the way of hearing the voice of my being.

I must listen and have the courage to follow the part of me that can do no other.

And it does take courage.

Do I have what it takes to not do what everyone would tell me to do and take the road less traveled?

Instead of resisting what I know, to find my purpose and learn what I must learn to fulfill my destiny, I must to stop judging and resisting.

My purpose may not at this time be on such a grand scale. Sometimes it starts small.

I will never understand the tiny part I play in this master plan. But what I do can cause a ripple than can have the affect of a tidal wave.

By building within myself, the effect on those around me paying attention can be magnificent.

Maybe I’m teaching a future leader of many to love without conditions.

Maybe I’m teaching someone about small acts of courage.

Maybe I could be showing someone how to find God.

A smile, being there for someone, reaching out with love, a kind gesture, loving actions, raise the vibration of everyone in the energetic vacinity.

I can never know how acting out of love without fear will serve humanity and that’s okay.

All I must do is stay present to see with my soul where I should be and what to do now.

The answers will come, but not in tomorrow, next week or anywhere in the future where I will never be.

They are all here right now, if I only look for them.
