I really think that how each of us lives our lives, is the message that people see.
When you preach something, people may put you up on a pedestal. You become famous, and everyone looks up to as an example, but the problem with that is you are guaranteed to fall off at some time. You can point to anyone who is in the public eye as being famous and see how this happens.
None of us are perfect. It is better to simply live the best life that you can. Keep walking the right path for you, not someone else. When you walk your path, you accomplish your divine destiny. This encourages others to strike out on their own path of divine destiny.
We all came with different goals to accomplish in our lives. When we are hurting, it is because we are not walking the path we came here for. We need to reach inside ourselves and get back on our own path.
To me it is like a pair of shoes. Several of us may have size seven feet, but that doesn’t mean that once I have broken in a pair of shoes that you can walk comfortably in my shoes. My feet will not have the same exact shape, even though we may be the same size. I have a different pattern of walking, and I will mold the shoe to fit my foot. It will then not really “fit” anyone else comfortably who wears a size seven shoe.
In the same way, we each have a different divine gift that we came here to express. If you just follow any path, it will lead to your being hurt. The universe will direct you again and again to the correct path, but if you don’t stay on it, it will hurt. Not that you may necessarily lead a life full of trouble. You would most certainly however, lead an unfulfilled life. And that would hurt, in that you would always be looking for something that you can’t find.
So the best way for us to be fulfilled is to walk our own unique path, and encourage others to walk theirs. There has been a lot of talk lately about what a hero is. To me, we are all hero’s when we step out onto our own path. It takes great courage to walk away from the masses and basically strike out on our own. But that is the inspiring life – both for ourselves and others
