Following Instructions/Learning Lessons

I won’t say I am the worst for following instructions.  I will say that I get impatient when I think I already know how to do something and the instructions don’t make sense. (Guess how many of the instructions I read through and followed to get this blog up and running… lol) Eventually I figure out that the person or spirit who gave me the instruction had a higher purpose than just to run me through an “unnecessary task”.  Just like my mother telling me NOT to get a private phone line when I was in college… I did it, then regretted it, but I learned a lesson.  So now, I am writing, as INSTRUCTED.

Huh… Learning a lesson… Who knew that was a lifelong process?  Who knew?  Teachers know.  Counselors know. Guides know.  Mentors know.  And, God knows when he determined before we were born that we have lessons to learn during our lifetime.

THE JOURNEY!

So, a set of instructions for me for this blog.

  • Allow Inspiration and Intuition to be my guide.
  • Be truthful.
  • Follow the Four Agreements written about by Don Miguel Ruiz.
    • Be impeccable with your word
    • Don’t take anything personally
    • Don’t make assumptions
    • Always do your best
  • Stay on track from the beginning and be systematic about writing things in an order, because, I know myself and will kick myself if I don’t

Responding to comments.  I have been called a teacher and I am happy to share examples and insights, but I am not going to give advice.  It’s up to my reader to determine what to get out of my writings. Maybe it’s nothing, but then maybe there is an Ah-Ha Moment.  Please feel free to leave a comment, but please also don’t be offended if there is no response. Ideally, it should follow the same instructions stated above.

My attempt here is to tell my story.  One of spirituality.  One that started at a young age by being taught the catechism of the Roman Catholic Church.  One that migrated towards Non-denominational Christian teachings and ultimately One that is questioning the difference between spirituality and religion.  Sprituality is so much deeper for me than religion.  Religion and its teachings offer many lessons of and outside a sacred text, but, I think, only a good community, leader and thoughtful instruction and guidance promote spirituality.  Fear of breaking away from the norm has riddled my journey with doubts but finding the journey mates for my soul are comforting.

Welcome Along the Journey!
