Events in our lives are clues and signs along our spiritual journey. A recent event showed me that my work is not done here at the college where I work. It is telling me that I need to make sure things are in place and help the new President transition to a healthy and functional place for the students, faculty, and staff here. This was the message when I was ready to give up and move on recently.
How do you know if the message is for you to let go or hang on? This is what I have found. If doing something is for selfish reasons or our egos, and it’s hard, let it go. If doing something is to benefit others and it’s hard, hang on. This has been difficult for me to decipher; like hieroglyphics, it’s not so clear or obvious.
When hard work results in a positive outcome for many people, it is probably a sign to hang on. On the other hand, if hard work results in negative outcome for myself or others, it’s probably time to let go. I believe it has to do with karma. Negative karma is created when our actions hurt others or feed our egos. Positive karma is created through helping others and kindness to others.
If you begin to follow your spiritual path based on this premise, you will be guided and create good karma in your life. May you find your path forward through creating good karma. (Copyright 2016 Awakening Journey with All Rights Reserved)
