Why me? Is a common question. Why do I have cancer? Why am I broke? Why am I always in trouble? Why am I always behind the eight ball? Why isn’t this working? Why do I have to move? Why why why why?? Why am I on the planet? Why don’t I know what to do?
I’ve heard these questions asked a great deal lately. On one hand, I have a good suspicion as to “why” a particular thing continues to repeat and yet there are the “why’s” that are much more complicated. The “why’s” that are tricky. I always pay attention to patterns, to repeating questions because I realize there is a message to be learned. In the message there is always a solution. I just have to be open, listen, pay attention and absorb.
I feel the next question to be asked for greater clarity is “why do I do the things I do? Why am I inspired? Why am I interested? Why do I feel this way? Why is this important? Why am I learning this lesson? Why do I believe this as my truth? Why do I value these things? When I ask myself the reverse or opposite of the negative “why’s” I take myself out of victim mode and into being the “wise” traveler. I become the “Wise Woman” of my own journey. My “why’s” become wise.
Reaching for the “heart” of the “why’s” changes the perspective, opening a new line of thinking, believing, feeling ~ moving into a solid course of action. The first step is recognizing the “wise” soul asking the “why’s” in the first place. It’s you. The hero of your own story.
Cosmic sunshine to you.
