Posts Tagged ‘life is a maze’

th-1… and consciousness is your map.

Do you want to succeed through life? Pay attention.

Don’t sleep walk your way through the maze. Every twist and turn has something for you. Every person you meet, every situation you encounter is quite purposefully planted in your path for your growth.

Open your eyes and get to know the terrain. Notice when you have gone down the same corridor and make another choice – don’t get looped into the same trap over and over again. If it looks familiar to you, chances are you’ve been down that path before.

Open your eyes and practice conscious awareness of the path you are on. You are always in charge of the path you take, but if you are not awake and conscious of the choices you are making, the maze will run you in circles.

Pick your head up. Stop running into dead ends. Be more strategic about your life. Learn when certain corridors lead you down darker paths and learn to look for the light.

But at the same time, don’t be afraid to explore and make mistakes. You might think that you know the direction that your path is taking you, but you may not. It may lead you towards a different outcome completely and believe it or not, that outcome would be for your highest good.

Practice consciousness towards your life. Pay attention to what is going on along your path – what are others saying to you and how others are treating you? The seeds of your life lessons are happening every day if you are conscious enough to watch them play out and learn the rules of the engagement. After all, it is the game of your life, and it is a maze which can be successfully navigated by waking up.

Your life is too short to run yourself around in circles. Do you want to be in a better place in your life? Wake up and find the nature of the path you have been following and if you realize that it hasn’t been serving you, it’s time to take another path.

… of infinite possibilities, unexpected twists and turns and many dead-ends.

Believe it or not, you have already set up your own maze before you were born. You have detailed out every challenge, every life lesson and every soul you are going to encounter along the way. Your maze is completely unique onto you. But we forget that our maze is “of our own design” and we get caught up in our own drama of hitting that dead-end after a 5-year straight-away leads you to “nowhere meaningful.” It is all meaningful. Every twist and turn and every roadblock is there for a reason – to teach you something about yourself. It doesn’t matter that you actually hit a roadblock, what matters is how you deal with that roadblock. Do you just sit out on the floor and play the victim or do you get yourself back up, dust yourself off and pick a new direction with optimism, not regret and resentment?

It is always easier to view the maze from above. Then one can know how truly simple it is to navigate. But life isn’t about getting all the answers handed to you. You have to find them for yourself. If you were handed all the answers, why would you bother being born? If there was no mystery, then we would never learn and have the extraordinary experiences of exploration and accomplishment that we have. Earth is our schoolroom and it is important that we learn to walk our maze with confidence that we will always find our own way to the finish gate when the time is right.

In theory, you cannot make a wrong turn. All paths lead you down a lesson in life – an experience (good or bad). They are all worth having. The secret to success in navigating the maze is not to focus on finding the exit, it is to focus on enjoying the scenery and learning to laugh at yourself once you hit yet another ridiculous roadblock that you should have seen coming.

You will get to the exit soon enough. In the interim, don’t get caught up in the “wrong turns.” Don’t give up. Learn to take a breath, choose another direction and just keep walking…. Just keep walking.
