"Beware", false prophets are everywhere, preaching this and teaching that. Thinking and saying that they know where it's at.
Be discerning what you take into your heart, for it's not always true and it's not always smart. Maybe it's true for them on their path of light, trust only yourself to know what is right. Seekers abound, wanting to learn all they can, but the answers they seek are not from another's hand. Most teachers are seekers too, no different than you, they could be saying false things and thinking it's true.
"When the student is ready, the teacher will appear." This is the saying that we often hear. But there is something to be added and it needs to be clear, the teacher isn't out there, the teacher is in here. Sure, we can learn from others, they have much to share. Perhaps they have traveled where you wouldn't dare. Perhaps they have learned lessons that have caused them pain. The wounded healer has returned again!
Christ, the sacrificial lamb, his wounds to behold! He died for us, so the story is told. But, how do we know, were we there on that day? Do we blindly believe in what others say.? I'm not saying it's wrong or this story is untrue, just asking the question. Does this feel true to you? Perhaps, he is just another wounded healer with much to teach, stories to share, and insights to preach.
For me, the truth is not out there, it's right here inside, it's not playing a game of seek and hide. There is no one teacher who knows it all. This is the truth that starts many wars. We fight for sovereignty when it was ours from the start. The truth is not out there, it's right here in your heart.
We see a nest of eggs and feel the fragility of them and yet within lies this incredible power of potential & so much growth. It's true, if they fall from the nest, it will be the end for them. But when they are nurtured, loved and kept safe, it is just the beginning, the possibilities are endless. How we treat ourselves is exactly the same. Tend to your own nest, keep yourself safe, love yourself. Beware of those who are waiting on the outer limbs, wanting you to fall...wishing you would crack. Don't be pushed if your intuition says, "I am not ready". Something in you is great, something in you knows what they don't know. You know when your time is ripe. You know when it is safe to break open & free yourself.
Trust that, be patient. Timing is everything.
