Am I on the Right Path?
As a metaphysical blogger and Tarot reader, I sometimes get asked, ‘Am I on the right path?’ Personally, I think the answer to that question is always ‘Yes.’ Allow me to elaborate.
If you are a spiritual seeker on a quest for truth, you can trust your guidance. You are always learning exactly the lessons you need to be learning to progress. And while it is true that we do not always venture onto the most direct path toward spiritual maturity, we learn things that enable us to help others when we go down those side alleyways and cul-de-sacs.
That said, after a while, when you are more sure about your true will and dedication to serving the Divine, you can ask for assistance with collapsing the timelines that are not for the Highest Good. We are rapidly approaching a time when more of us should strive to do this. The more of us that are on the most direct and highest vibrational path possible, the better.
I’m not saying the world is about to end; I’m saying, we’re on a collective timeline that includes a shift of consciousness on a scale not seen in 2000 years. Only if you are on the most direct timeline as an individual, will you be able to hold the Highest Good for all in mind to manifest it. Let’s do it… We’ve got this!
It’s All About Relationship
The awareness that is dawning as we are on the threshold of the Age of the Holy Spirit is that the heart is the gateway to this new era. Spirituality is becoming less about religious dogma and more about the cross of light. We understand that vertical alignment facilitates divine horizontal alignment. And we seek this alignment via our inner guidance more and more, rather than relying on believing what someone else tells us to believe.
As we enter into this process, we realise that it’s all about relationship. Religion is like an arranged marriage. Spirituality that springs from seeking to embody the Love of God is like a passionate love affair. But not until you know yourself are you ready for true love…
Do not stir up or awaken love until it pleases.Song of Solomon, 2:7b
If you really want to know that you are on the right path, there is a simple test you can apply. When you listen to a secular love song, does it make your heart swell with love for the Divine? Once you become drunk on Divine Love, there is no substitute…
Be drunk with love, for love is all that exists.Rumi
Love God with all your heart…
The words of the Gospel still hold true:
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. ‘The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.Mark 12:30-31
The problem with religion is that it creates a Stockholm syndrome type of relationship where you learn to ‘love’ your oppressor who will literally send you to hell unless you love them. Thankfully we are evolving away from this kind of toxic relationship with the divine.
As someone who fell into the trap of dogmatic religion not once but twice in this lifetime, I can honestly say that I am grateful for those experiences now. I’m grateful for two reasons: Firstly, I was introduced to Yeshua’s teachings thanks to religion and secondly, I have a good understanding of what religion does to the psyche. The latter is wonderful for me as a healer. It allows me to help anybody suffering from religious wounding or who is in the process of deconstructing their faith.
Having come at religion and spirituality from all angels through immersion and initiations has been an exhausting path at times but it has been so worth it. That’s why I can say, based on my own life experience that there is no such thing as a ‘wrong path.’
I hope this post is useful on your path, my friend. I recommend that you use only the Tarot Major Arcana for the spread at the top of the post.
I did this spread last night with Tarot of the Sidhe and the Tree Angel oracle. It was so complex and deep, I have to study it again tonight after work. I believe I am on the correct path but have made quite a few errors that steered me off .
Last week I heard church patronage is down to 48% in the USA. Would you attribute this to people finding their spirituality without the help of a priest, rabbi or pastor?
I think it’s good to have a place of worship to get together although I’ve never been affiliated with one. I love going into old churches and sitting though. I find it very comforting.
I think a whole lot of churches made themselves irrelevant by how they handled themselves through this ‘pandemic.’ The more I study the Gospel of Thomas, the more convinced I am that the early Christians, which some refer to as Gnostics, got it right. They had no hierarchy when they gathered. They took turns serving in different ways during their meetings and there was a system of casting lots in place for who did what. Complete equality, in the true spirit of Christ.
