Here you are, a soul with a mission and a journey to undertake. What do you need to have in your backpack before you set out? As you embark on this journey that we call life and as you step forward into daily living, what can you take with you? Here is a list of the essentials. Keep them visible somewhere in your space to serve as reminders as you move toward your spiritual and life goals.
#1 ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR HUMANNESS
Acknowledge that you cannot do life alone. Acknowledge the presence of a higher power that will carry you all the time, in every situation and every state that you are in.
#2 BE CURIOUS
Ask to learn and understand. Learn as much as you can and expand your horizons. Do not hold back! Allow your learning to uncover your spiritual path.
#3 SEEK THE TRUTH
Set your intention to live a life of integrity. Accept only the truth and nothing less.
#4 FEED YOUR SOUL
Always keep in mind its three primary needs: connecting to Source, finding ways of being, and finding ways of expressing. Allow yourself to grow in the nest of physical, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual nourishments that you consciously create in your life.
Remind yourself to stay in a state of alignment through prayer as you move through your day. Prayer takes three forms: asking for what you need, acting in ways that affirm life and bring goodness into the world, and praising the Divine.
#6 TRUST AND LET GO
Practice taking responsibility for your actions and then surrendering the outcomes to the Divine. Allow surrender to be an intimate part of your daily experience.
#7 KEEP THE BIG PICTURE IN MIND
Think in terms of purpose, the transition to eternal life, and our destiny as humanity. Doing so will keep you in a state of conscious living, inquiry, and spiritual alignment as you open up to your fullest potential.
When we wholeheartedly practice surrender, every aspect of our life becomes a prayer. We understand the purpose of our creation, and we embody it in our actions. We create a life that fulfills the soul’s need to find and connect to Source, to be in its unique states, and to express itself fully. With the support of the Divine, we can achieve far more than we ever believed possible.
