Walk your own path

“Walk as if you are kissing the earth with your feet” ~ Thich Nhat Hahn

There really is no substitute for the lessons that you learn from your feet.

Wherever they walk, they are telling you your story.
You. Your feet. Your journey.
Only you have walked this way, only you have taken those steps.

Whilst it is good to have fellow travelers alongside for some of the trip, don’t let them distract you.
They too have their own paths to negotiate. You cannot follow them and stay true to your own lessons.

Don’t be enamored of others’ tales of wondrous lands and celestial beings. You are your own saviour.
Those who wait to be saved or scooped up in loving arms will wait forever.
Don’t give away your power or discernment to those who weave a fantastic tale.

You are where you are.  You are present in this moment, in this place and in this time.
It is your story, not a fairy tale that someone has written on your behalf.
Own this space. Own your feelings. Own your weaknesses. Own your strength.

If you are constantly following others like a lost child, then that is how you shall remain.
Do not live in constant fear of being left alone on the track.
Unbind yourself from the template of thinking that does not truly belong to you.
All you need to know is within. Take the time to find your voice inside yourself, not outside.

Be at peace with the world around you and step gently on this good earth.
Do no harm, speak only truth and leave the circle quietly if the drum does not beat in time with your heart.
There is no need to groan or thrash around like a fish in a net. You are not trapped.
If it does not serve you, walk away.

Your feet will soon let you know when you are back on your own path again.
Resume your lessons with gratitude for all that you are and all that you have inside.

Walk your own path.
