The Reflection of Your Journey
The world is the reflection of your journey – this you hear time and time again on the spiritual path. It means that when you’re in a room full of people, all are reflecting an angle of a facet of you. Could be the present you, future or past – whatever is projected is reflected at the speed of light. In life, just as in the hall of mirrors, many of the reflections may distort or magnify all (or parts) of the projection – but within each reflection there is reality. The total image may not seem true, but it contains truth. It is up to you to find it in the sea of distortion.
To believe such a dynamic law and lead your life within this phenomenon is of course a great risk – it can deeply disturb a slumbering consciousness. Remember that when nothing is ventured, nothing is gained. It is like walking – falling and catching yourself before the fall.
As a child you were first confronted with the fear of walking, but the rewards outweighed the risks and now you don’t even perceive the dangers in it.
You won’t until you become very old and once again connect to the same risk you knew as a child. The reality is that the risk never left – your attitude simply changed. The inspiration overpowered the trepidation. Now the trepidation again catches up with the inspiration and questions it.
Losing the sense of risk is the ultimate step in any natural progression when acquiring any skill or achieving any goal. The same is true in seeing the world as your own reflection – as it is the most powerful skill you can gain. It’s time to develop this same “risk free” relationship, as it is one that surrounds every one of your life goals and dreams. This skill is known as star walking and it’s only accomplished by those willing to pursue the inspiration in the face of tremendous trepidation.
You’ll be given many opportunities to practice. Make sure to take the chances you’re gifted.
First: See all the risks in viewing the entire world as your reflection – do not deny any of them.
Second: see the goal as absolutely worthwhile
Third: see that this risk creates every fear that stands between you and your dreams
Fourth: refocus on the inspiration of the goal and slightly angle the view that sits beside the risk – just see it as part of the landscape – then a little less, then even less.
The risk will never go away. Your relationship with it simply changes your attitude of which is more important: the inspiration or the trepidation?
