One Pilgrim’s Journey
In my early years on this pilgrim’s journey, I would awaken and think through the night’s lessons and get my marching orders for the day. They were equally important. One morning though the conclusion was that it truly was a world without end. But world without end has a magnitude about it that I am now understanding. I have long said that we go to where we belong; earned the right to be where the patterns of our days prepared us. It truly is a universe of no retire. If gravity and its inhabitants have worn us to a frazzle, there will be rest, but there is the new address awaiting.
These worlds do exist. In this particular world only five senses are used to inhabit it. But there are other aspects of Being which are not yet ours. Some people have extra senses that piggy backed on the ones most of us inherit. There are no skipped grades in any world. What is ours to do may be different than what the next person has to do, but there is graduation for all of us. No need to worry about early exits either. What is not learned once will be given other chances. It behooves all of us to learn what we must wherever we are. The next time may not be as agreeable nor as conducive to easy learning as this Earth is. And we are held accountable.
Some of us are obsessed with questions others do not give thought to. They come with faith in their carpetbag. Faith of necessity is blind otherwise it would not be faith. Questions would only complicate an already complicated life for some souls. Whatever framework we have chosen for this world grants us what is necessary to work life through. But within each rises the question which will turn the individual to the opening of the treasure chest within. He/She has the key to open it. And it is the word ‘why?’ That word,’why?’ either starts or closes the journey.
We have our camouflage systems worked out beautifully. We construct our walls in the mind and do not allow anything disturbing to enter. Occasionally a crack will appear and we will scurry for the emotional plaster or caulking to seal it. The one who can no longer pretend the pieces fit the puzzle will begin the process of discovery and his/her journey begins. They will hear ‘you have to be crazy to do this to yourself’ but they are crazy like a fox.
The roar you hear will be the heaven’s rejoicing that they have ‘a live one’ down there! Let it be you.

Do we live in a walled garden or are we just hiding there? We survived the past, endure the present and fear the future. Knowing there are other worlds, other chances, should free us to push ahead and reach for our highest selves. Thank you for cracking the wall.
It IS I, Veonica. I am one of many who have been on this trip for decades. So glad you write as you do. Your Light is a lamp unto our footsteps.
