The Next Step

We can only take one step at the time, physically and in life. We can take big steps, which in many ways feel like giant leaps, but we can still only master one big step at the time.

Our individual evolution is the basis of our life, so technically we can't stand still or go backward. When it sometimes feels like that it has more to do with the fact that we choose detours in the name of self-sabotage.

I'm all for concentrating on one clue at the time and focusing totally on that. Next clue is next clue, and if we are denying our next step, the flow is blocked. And we end up with a feeling of being stranded or going around in circles.

Sometimes it can be difficult to feel our next step. In all reality we are just lying a little to ourselves. I find that we often do know our next step, but that exact step scares us. So we try to take other steps, while our most pressing step lies in the back of our head like a constant stressing ringtone.

Some put all of their energy in premature steps. They are always 10-15 steps ahead mentally. That brings a feeling of being behind and it's in no way nurturing for our soul, the self-love or our desires.

You will know your next step because you are able to handle it. If it's not doable, it's not your next step. Then you have other steps to handle first.

Intimacy, joy and peace enter your life the moment you fall in love with the thought of enjoying one step at the time. Clue after clue will slowly open up for you, treasures will be replaced by new clues, which then lead to treasures you hadn't thought possible. And even when you think life can't get any better, new steps will give you goosebumps and bubbles all over.

The essence is not about being perfect or steering around the so-called mistakes. The essence is not really the many treasures life brings, either. The point is to enjoy the journey and its many steps. What's your next step?
