In my very first post I talked briefly about an analogy I’ve had in my mind for quite some time. I’m an analogy maker by trade, haha. If a connection or relationship can be made to help me better understand something, I’ll make it! It’s how my brain works.
I like to think of my journey like multiple sets of stairways leading up a mountain. The mountain represents the journey I plan to embark on, in this lifetime. Each stairway represents a facet of my journey that I’m constantly working at evolving and growing. There’s my spiritual stairway, my physical stairway and my mental/thinking stairway. All these stairways are “one” in some aspects, yet very individual in other ways. They interact at times. They fuel one another at times - not allowing one to fall behind because the distance I’ve ascended on each needs to remain fairly equal to remain balanced. What I mean by this is that I can’t be miles ahead on one stairway and be miles behind on the other. I’ve found it just doesn’t work like that. I’ll break off on a tangent to explain…
It’s not humanly possible for me to be growing spiritually and waking up my Consciousness so to speak, yet still be making the habitual junk food choices I used to make that left me walking around in a brain fog - a very unconscious way of living. Those two states do not happen simultaneously. I’ve learned that...
As I travel up one stairway, it naturally happens that this causes me to ascend up the other stairways similarly.
Now… I’m going to take a step back to my explanation of this mountain with stairways analogy that I’ve got going in my mind. Each step on the stairways represents a small choice or change in how you live your life. It’s the total effect of all of these that leads you to a better you… to the place you’re meant to evolve to.
And the irony is that once you’ve journeyed up several steps you actually discover along the journey, various steps you’d like to add to your own journey. Because, and here’s a big secret Kelly’s learned… you create your Mountain! You, with God, create and plan each step. You Will it into being. Your Mountain and its steps can be as incredible, energy-filled and transformative as you can possibly dare to dream and imagine! ...or as dull, life-less and bleak as you’re unconsciously capable of creating - make that: letting happen to you.
The peak at the top of your Mountain? Well, it can keep getting higher and further away as you set new personal goals for yourself and as you keep envisioning and creating the YOU you plan to become.
Your ideas of where you want to go and who you’ll be when you get there actually evolve along the way. It’s a very beautiful process in my mind. I’m learning it’s what God’s all about… and if God’s all about creation… and God’s essentially in us, creating through us... who are we to get in our own way?! Essentially God’s way?! Whoa. Process that one.
About that peak… I know for me, my peak keeps getting further away. Not in a frustrating-oh-I’ll-never-get-there--this-is-impossible-kind-of-way, but in a whoa-there’s-so-much-more-I-want-to-do-and-I-want-to-evolve-myself-even-more-before-this-lifetime-is-over-kind-of-way. As I contemplate and envision my stairways and my peak, they become richer, more astounding and way more magnificent. The possibilities are limitless!
What will you create?
Who will you create YOU to be?
I am a wife, mom to two and teacher. I have a lot of things I'd like to go after in this lifetime!
