The Sword and the Sheild

Preparation brings forth opportunities to create the thoughts for action through the combination of the mind, the body and the spirit.  To prepare for the opportunities that Something Greater will give you if you seek is the key to bringing the inside of who you are out into your world. 

Those who think it is all luck when someone has more material things than you need to look at the view of what is really happening from a different angle.  Everyone has their own journey with the opportunity to reach the awareness that there is Something Greater.  Everyone takes their own path to find this awareness if they so choose. 

With each step you take on your path there are many trails that all lead to the same destination.  Each day can be viewed as a different path or the continuation of the trail you traveled yesterday.  The destination becomes an ever developing path as you learn more of where you are going with your current thoughts that leads you to take the action to create.  Some of you are on a path that may seem like you are going nowhere then you wake up one day with new thoughts that make you choose where to go next.  Whatever you believe in, your journey is for you only and you can choose to take this adventure alone or you can look towards the magnificence of the creations that lie all around you.

Even on the darkest of paths, when you feel the most insecure of who you are, there are tools that you hold inside your mind to get you through the storms that rage around you.  As you walk on your path through life with the tools of hope and faith, strength emerges through the combination of these two principles.  They are your shield.  You can take honesty as your sword to use as a weapon to protect yourself.  If you view your thoughts and feelings as being in a battle between the love and the fear that you hold, you can see the sword of honesty hard at work.  You can see yourself holding this sword in one hand and the shield that is made from hope and faith in the other hand.  As you walk through the darkest of valleys on your journey through life, the shield of hope and faith in combination with the sword of honesty will bring you through these difficult times and as you are busy protecting yourself, you will not even realize how this battle brings you to a path that you would never have traveled to get to this moment any other way.  With each time you hold the sword of honesty, the shield of hope and faith will shine for you through the valley of darkness.  As you fight the fear inside that is an illusion created in an unseen world, the knowledge of who you really are inside gradually emerges into your awareness.

It is a battle that you alone are fighting and you have choices as to how you want to fight your fears.  The times you feel as though you cannot take another thought are the times to take the sword of honesty and the shield of hope and faith and shine into your fears to see what they really mean to you.  The thoughts that lead you to this path of fear will trail all the way back to a time when you had no knowledge of how to fight against the fear. You experienced the fear from the beginning to find the part inside of you that can grow into a love that is ever evolving in your life.  How can you know the love without knowing what it is not? 

The destination is love if you so choose and there will be many experience that will be clues on this adventure through life.  The battle lies in the mind with each experience as the pathway that tell you which way to go.  You are the warrior on this path that fights through the fear inside your head.  You can turn this battle into the adventure that is was created for or you can take the fear and see yourself in a war against your world.  With the sword of honesty and the shield of hope and faith that there is Something Greater, you can turn this journey of life into the adventure that the Creator of All meant it to be.

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me”  --Psalm 23:4
