Guidance for the Journey

Journey sign

“The journey through life is a series of starts and stops, U-turns and wrong turns, ups and downs, unobstructed paths and no entry areas, straight and obvious routes and winding and precarious backstreets, unpredictable events and constant rhythms. The journey through life is perceived as difficult, or difficult and interesting, or difficult and unfair, or difficult and deserved, or difficult and surmountable, or difficult and this-or-that. The journey through life is varied in length; a short life is mourned and a long life is accepted. The journey through life is similar for all in that it starts with a breath and ends with a gasp (except in cases of sudden unnatural death).”
…from Oneself—Living

We all enter life with stumbling blocks in front of us. Some stumbling blocks are more difficult to pass and some stop us completely. The journey is meant to be trial-and-tribulation full, not smooth-sailing-the-whole-way. The idea that life is supposed to be easy is a marketing ploy that cripples and weakens us. Life is not a laundry detergent commercial with all the stains coming out, clean as new. Life is complex! Yes it is, and the more we prepare for complexity, the more we can exalt in the journey.

Here is guidance for the journey:

  • Learn to breathe properly and variedly. Knowing how to breathe through the changes in life will help you stay focused and well.
  • Develop your senses. Use your eyes to study the world. Use your nose to create memories. Use your ears to connect with animals and plants. Use your mouth to nourish your body. Use your hands to create. Use your bodily awareness to connect with other people.
  • Know yourself. Know the things that draw you to them and the things that repel. Know your temperament and accept it. Know your abilities and your drive. The more you know yourself, and live accordingly, the more you can live truthfully.

“After a life is over, a new life will one day come. A different body and a varied soul that will live life anew. Each incarnation with its challenges and successes-defeats. Each incarnation with its relationship groups changed yet revisited. Each incarnation in the continuous cycle of life-death-life-death-life-death-life-death-life.”

People cycle in groups

Coloration

The book Awaiting Light—Understanding the Development of the Soul explains the connection of people to their relatives, friends, and special acquaintances beyond the current life. Connections are built-in through the soul-color attribute Coloration.

“Coloration provides cyclical incarnation. Souls that are in the same group bind in varying combinations that cause them to have recognition from incarnation to incarnation. Coloration is just one attribute of each soul so that people with the same coloration can be very different, but the recognition of group membership can lead to pairing and connections time after time. Coloration determines the appearance of group member souls, but it does not guarantee harmony or comfort.

Groups contain souls that will join through marriage, friendship, extended family relations, and special relationship connections such as through work, community, and interests. Groups provide order to life because they influence choices and connections.

Life does not allow for members of groups to connect in each incarnation. Meetings don’t always occur, marriages don’t always happen, and different decisions lead to movement away from natural relationships. Life with group members is more satisfying, but not necessarily more relaxed. The other soul-color attributes can influence group functionality. Attraction to others not in one’s group can bring satisfaction because group membership is not the uppermost requirement for happiness with one’s life.

Similar coloration can be felt when meeting people for the first time. Natural attraction to people can be a sign of coloration matching. This sense of attraction is felt when meeting people who were once lovers, friends, or kin (in other incarnations). Other incarnations are not actually felt during the current life, but the sense of comfort or knowingness is.

Togetherness is vital for normal human development. Coloration assists the joining of people in units (families, friendships, etc.) so that togetherness can be achieved. Familiarity is not a fluke; familiarity is built into people connections.”
