Mile Markers

It never ceases to amaze me how an emotion can mark a place in space-time, creating an indelible memory.  Emotions are so very powerful at times.  Our moments of struggle along with our moments of joy and happiness create something that can sometimes take on a life of it's own.  I suppose that is what makes us so amazing as human beings.  Our capacity to generate emotion and memory is truly amazing.  As I look back at my own life, the things that stand out the most along the path I have traveled are those moments of intense emotion whether positive or negative.  These little mile markers are left behind us to remind us of how far we have come in our lives.  Standing in the present, you need only recall the memory and the emotion can wash over you anew.  From the vantage point of the present, you can look back and see amazing things.  Sometimes the memories represent truth and clarity but sometimes those mile markers are created with assumption and resulting consequences.  Things we carry with us that maybe won't fully support us aren't always so obvious.

I think, though, that if we were to analyze the patterns of the past, we could provide ourselves with greater insight for the present and strengthen our awareness of who we really are.  The past events and memories do not define us but theydo clarify the patterns of thoughts we have held that created emotion within us.  It isn't something to be overly concerned about or become wistful considering.  Awareness is all that is needed along with a willingness to uncover the truth so that we can move forward on the path without hesitation, without reservation and without fear.  The journey of your lives carries great significance.  We come for an experience, to learn to love and to grow.  Every single moment that makes up the journey that has been your life is important.  The people, the occurrences and the emotion are written down in the records that become the story of your life. But, the story is not you.  So, keep that in mind.  Now consider moving forward...If life has become riddled with questions, worries and woes, think for a moment now and then just what you wish to create for your future.  Look ahead a little and realize that for as many mile-markers as you have left behind you, so too have you marked your future.  Time is meaningless in many regards.  Create what you will in terms of readiness to embrace your life and know that right now you can establish the platform from which the future will manifest your dreams.

Walk on bravely in your life always and ever seeking to understand it and strive to strike a balance as the pendulum of emotion swings and know that it will swing.  But you, you are the creator of your destiny and will create that which your soul most desires to learn and experience here.  Worry less about the future as it will come in it's own time revealing to you a little at a time the things you most desire.  Cultivate a great and wondrous sense of curiosity about what the path holds as you travel it one step and breath at a time.  Live your life knowing that no matter what, it will hold great meaning for not only you but every single life that you touch. ~Blessings for an amazing journey beautiful dreamers.
