Yesterday, while working with a client, I heard the following words fly out of my mouth:
The goal of our spiritual journey is to believe what we’ve known all along.
Who knew? While I had not previously thought this thought, as I heard these words come out of my mouth, I knew them to be true. And my client concurred. The truth of who we are and who we are called to be already lives within us and is just waiting for us to be quiet enough to listen for it, hear it, and most importantly, believe it. It is only in believing the truth that speaks softly (and sometimes loudly) that we can allow our truth to come into reality and to be fully realized in our life. Each of us is uniquely gifted to find meaning, purpose and fulfillment in our lives and the truth of this gift lives within us waiting to be known.
As a spiritual director, my job is to help my clients:
1) Learn how to take time to listen for the voice of their truth.
2) Learn effective tools for hearing that truth.
3) Help them believe in that truth.
4) Provide them with the tools and support needed to be empowered in that truth.
What is the truth that you have known all along?
