The Road We Travel

Beyond The Yellow Brick Road is available on my Etsy shop.  It signifies the journey my soul has been on the last few months, a time of change, and growth.

The road we travel on can be very dark, but sometimes in traveling through the dark we can find the light at the end of the tunnel.  There is always light at the end of a dark night of the soul if we hang on long enough.

Our souls and our minds work together to remind us that we are not alone.  Our soul is connected to all of the bodies we've lived in since the beginning of time and all the soul's connections  we've known since the beginning of time

When we start living by our souls and our hearts, our head has no choice but to come along for the ride.  Our head has to follow and join the parts of who we are as mere mortals with our hearts and  our souls and make us complete.  We come full circle and become the person we are meant to be.  The person our soul and our heart want us to be.

In our dreams we are souls, they take us on a journey backwards to remember the lives of people who were so important on this journey of life.  In our dreams we remain on a journey in the moment.  Finally in our dreams we make plans and figure out our journey to the future. We bring along only the things we need to make us complete.  We move beyond the fear of the unknown to a place of knowledge where we know instinctively what we need to carry forward.  In our hearts we carry forward the memories of those who have loved us, in our souls we carry the purpose we are here for and in our minds we hold the key that brings all three parts of us together and makes us whole.

Every souls journey is filled with opposites that work to decide what kind of life we shall live. Without darkness, there can be no appreciation of the light.  Without ying there can be no yang.  Without hatred there can be no appreciation of love.  Without grief there can be no appreciation for life.  Once we come to realize that everything that came before both good and bad was necessary to move forward we can live a more authentic life and make better choices.  We can pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and start creating the life we want in the moment and start planning for the future.

We all have so many things that fill the void of our memories and our failures and our fear.  When we realize the journey our soul wants us to take, we can let go of some of that stuff  and live more authentically in the moment . Therefore charting a path to a life that we love, the life of our dreams. We can find people, work and causes we are passionate about. We can decide which people come with us or those we send off in love to find their own paths.  And we can forgive ourselves and others who have hurt us and thank them for the lessons we have learned.  We can live the path of  unconditional love and move forward.

So be passionate,be unconditional, be love.  Take only the things you really need to remember where you started, to remember where you are in the moment and to remember the life your soul is here to create.  We only walk a short time in our mere mortal bodies but our souls are eternal, so try to find things in your life that speak to your soul, your heart and then hopefully and optimistically,  your mind will have no choice but to follow along.  Blessings.
