The entire fruit is already present in the seed. - Tertullian
Spirit is the wild card and our ticket to earn extra credit. The manner in which we engage that will determine whether we take the path well trod to follow those who came before to repeat --- or if we wake up in time, erase --- their mistakes. Or we can blaze a trail and make new mistakes for others to uncover, expose and repeat or erase.
Bottom line: Mistakes are just another part of the journey toward the one/whole/holy and part of the growth process of evolution when we choose to learn (about life - not from life) rather than duplicate our history in perpetuity.
Following or Blazing... Hold your head high, keep your eyes up, your ears open and your inner navigator tuned to receive. There is always another watching over you, waiting to provide an assist. It matters not whether you know it. Ask for an upgrade that you might sense that connection.
And when you least expect... that other will reveal the role to allow you to jettison excess baggage on your journey beyond the limits of imagination ... Those others exist in ALL forms and ALL dimensions as they are spirit in nature and not limited to conform to a mind construct.
Is there a final lap home? Nothing is final. There are endless beginnings and endings. Transitions and changing of scenes and scenery dot the multidimensional landscape... but the players just keep going ... evolving into the multi-faceted, iridescent quarks that illuminate eternity.
Remember. You are always HOME. Engage your mind for the greater good and you will free yourself from that which indicates otherwise.
