No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path. Buddha

Sometimes I wonder if I walk the path of my own heart, or am following someone else’s road? I love reading new books. I love hearing about new authors and new spiritual places and new techniques for spiritual and personal healing. There is great inspiration in learning about other people’s walk and how they got where they are in their spiritual development. Sometimes however, it seems like spirituality becomes a fad, and we have to get on the bandwagon of the next great idea. Occasionally I even feel judged if I don’t take the same supplement, go to the same “healer,” or do a certain type of practice.

To walk the path of enlightenment is to follow your own inner truth. What I’ve noticed is that it’s easy to be influenced by someone else’s way of living a spiritual life. It’s easy to think if you do it just the way “they” did, you’ll reach enlightenment. But your path is your own. You cannot walk someone else’s. The Universe is so infinite and so creative that there are countless paths to the Divine. Allow your own revelations to provide direction and inspiration. This is Spirit’s illumination in your life. TRUST your own Divine Intuition. Walk the path that is yours to walk.

Spiritual Contemplation: Where are you following a spiritual fad? What does your inner guidance show you as your primary spiritual path?

Affirmation: I walk my own Spiritual Path with God. I invite inspiration from others and my own inner light to illuminate my way.
