A Walk Along Life�s Path
I have helped and yet have not been helped. The path that I am treading was forged for me and me alone. I will share my journey with others sometimes; sometimes I shall walk alone. I will happily share the burdens of others that I meet, but I do not expect others to share mine. My burdens are the lessons that my soul requires, although I will learn to accept help when it is needed and offered.
I have listened and yet my voice is unheard. Yet I keep speaking. I persist in my messages and even if I am not heeded, I know that part of what I have said is absorbed and carried with the person to whom I am speaking, whether they are aware of it or not. I am careful to speak only the truth; and know that this truth will be there for them should they need it later.
I have caught others and yet have been allowed to fall. Yet in falling, I have been able to understand better and therefore be better able to catch others once I have picked myself back up. I know that once I have picked myself up, I am a stronger person.
I have watched and yet have passed unnoticed. I choose not to leave an imprint on the lives of those that I meet, except perhaps the light touch of peace and love. I hate being the centre of attention and prefer to do my work quietly; after all, I have chosen the work that is to be done and there is no need to shout about it.
I have encountered anger, bitterness, prejudice and fear and yet have no anger or bitterness within me. I see that any anger, bitterness, prejudice and fear that is directed towards me is from those who do not understand and who have not found the way yet. I choose to remain emotionally detached from these people, but I try to help them if I can.
I am human. I try to remember the ideals mentioned above and try to live up to them. Many times I will fall and many times I will fail on some or all of them. So I try to do my best and try not to beat myself up if I don�t succeed. I remember that I am far from perfect and although I am of spirit in origin, at this moment in time I am human.
