Pathfinders

Pathfinding is a hero’s journey.  Every one of us has a hero in us, one who urges us forward. Spiritual seekers find their pathways and become Pathfinders, an internal, eternal journey for our growth. We are those who realise we know nothing; we are always halfway up the mountain in the spiritual world, forever masters in the making. Walking on a spiritual path is not easy. The journey is long. We need to overcome many inner demons, and the challenges are never far – though the blessings we find along the way can be stunning and nourishing.

The journey of the Pathfinder is not one that we find in books even though books may help. This is about active doing on the way to transformation. We chop wood and carry water, and after the spiritual, we do the laundry.

Everyone has the spiritual Pathfinder archetype in facets. The Creator, Visionary, Magician, the Revolutionary, Alchemist and Dreamer, Mystic, and Healers, to name a few. Truth is an agent of change. A singular point of a potent truthful sentence can, and often does, shift the direction of lives. That is how powerful the truth can be, and why it is essential for this archetype to live a congruent life that is true to who they are as balanced, deeply unique individuals. It is easy to fill the mind with one’ agenda and the heart with another. The truth can be uncomfortable for many, but for the spiritual finder, the truth is what sets them free.  We are prepared to live a life led by questions that shatter the boundaries between the ego and the soul. The challenge we face centers around committing to a life where the body, mind and spirit work in unison. We are not here to speak to you in absolutes but to share what we have discovered in our explorations and self-healing and assist you in hearing your true calling, to facilitate the flow of your life within the construct of our 3D world, and the symbols and imaginations of the 4d.

We are all brave souls who go through incredible things in our lives. Times of the dark night of the soul, or we get stuck somehow, needing to find a way, a purpose. So we set out on the hero’s journey, seeking a pathway that has meaning, a path with a heart  The Hero’s journey has a beginning, a middle and an end, where we come back with an insight, or a gift. The pearl born from what we have been through.

A genuine Pathfinder is sincere on his or her path, a half-hearted effort cannot do. One has to be total in this search. Deep commitment and sincerity, to be spiritually willing, is not to be confused with seriousness. One should be sincere on the path, conscious of serving others and our Creator, the Infinite One. But seriousness can be a burden unbounded, whereas a sense of fun and humour makes us lighter, fresher. Keep your burdens light.

The world needs spiritual seekers and finders.If ever there was a time to pursue a path on your calling to serve, it is now.

“The Bushmen in the Kalahari Desert talk about the two “hungers”. There is the Great Hunger and there is the Little Hunger. The Little Hunger wants food for the belly; but the Great Hunger, the greatest hunger of all, is the hunger for meaning… There is ultimately only one thing that makes human beings deeply and profoundly bitter, and that is to have thrust upon them a life without meaning.There is nothing wrong in searching for happiness. But of far more comfort to the soul is something greater than happiness or unhappiness, and that is meaning. Because meaning transforms everything. Once you are doing that which has for you meaning, it is irrelevant whether you’re happy or unhappy. You are content – you are not alone in your Spirit – you belong.”
