There once was a sailor named Petah…
His whole life, he very much wanted to sail the world…
see far away places and experience cultures other than the one he knew…but…
something always kept him back…himself.
Petah was in the final preparations for the beginning of his voyage across the sea, when a man approached him one day…
“You think you’re going to sail the open sea alone in that boat?” said the man to Petah.
Petah said nothing as he has learned to do when faced with someone who professes supreme knowledge.
The man shook his head and arrogantly smiled while saying, “Your boat’s not made for that. You are going to die while your boat sinks to the bottom of the ocean. You do have a life raft, don’t you?”
Petah smiled back and said, “Thank you for your advice, Sir.”
The man stormed off down the dock, stopped, turned and yelled, “Your boat’s not made for what you are about to do…you are stupid, Petah!”
“Listen to others, but don’t lose your own Voice”…
The Voice within tells Us a thing…
Our Voice sometimes tells Us things which seem impossible…yet…
Our Voice is Our Heart…Love is the Voice which is the voice of God.
Upon Petah’s return months later from a voyage of almost two thousand miles across the open sea, the same man approached Petah while he was telling stories to his friends of the adventure.
“I see you made it back…are you going out in that boat again?” spoke the man with disdain.
“Yes”, said Petah firmly to the man while looking straight into his eyes.
The man shook his head in frustration and angrily said, “Your boat’s not made for that…you are stupid, Petah.”
The simple sailor watched the man turn around and walk away, storming off down the docks, still shaking his head in bewilderment. The friends of Petah just laughed.
♥ The Message ♥
Have you ever had someone come up to you and say…
“Well…what you are doing is wrong.”
“You should not do what you are about to do.”
“You need to consider a different Path because what you are doing never works out the way you think that it will.”
“You must be more logical and rational in your thinking about what you are considering doing.”
“Perhaps take a year and plan this thing out better.”
“You must be Perfect in your appearance to the rest of the world in what you are doing.”
Only You know what is in Your Heart, Mind and Soul. Only You know what Your Own Personal Truth is in Love.
Sometimes, people in our lives will decide that they must give us unsolicited advise about a thing they do not understand about us. From a Fear within their own Personal Belief system, from Fears they have experienced in their own Paths, they will try to convince us that decisions We have come to within our Own beings are “wrong”.
Do we listen to them?
Well, if they are trusted advisors to us, then yes, of course we do. They are trusted confidants of Us. However, Listening to another and allowing them to make decisions for Us are two different things. At any point in a lecture from another, whether unsolicited or not, we can ask them politely to stop. End the discussion with Your Strength and continue along Your individual Path in a Peaceful Way.
Follow Your Own Peaceful Way…
Flow with the Present Moment…
Be in the Now…for perhaps…
Truth of Love is there for You.
