What do I wish I had known before I started all of this?

I wish I had known…

  1. …that there is no right or true path. The grass is no greener on the other side of the fence. There is simply that path I am on, until I change and then I am on another path. I will never know what it would be like to have taken a different route so it’s better to enjoy the one I am on.
  2. …that it is all right to question my teachers, and that is a higher level of consciousness than simply accepting everything they say, regardless of whether it makes sense or not. It is my life and I need to find my truth, whatever it takes. One day the questions will become so loud that I will not be able to ignore them any more. It’s better to start asking them sooner rather than later.
  3. …that theory does not carry much weight in the world of consciousness. Who I am is so much more important than what I know. Having my mind full of words and philosophy actually gets in the way, so keep it simple.
  4. …that solutions are more valuable than answers. Knowing how to solve a problem is not much use unless I actually solve it. There are too many people with all the answers and none of the action.
  5. …that people will criticise me and judge me if I take action. They will think they know more than me – and that might be true. But as long as they are just watching and not taking action themselves it doesn’t matter what they think. In a game of football the fans stay clean and the players get muddy. But only the players score goals.
  6. …how to ask for help. 
  7. …that we are all completely different and there is no need to be envious of the people who have extraordinary visions, wild energy experiences or see auras.
  8. …that I can never run away from myself, however hard I try. And that no job, relationship or money will save me from myself.
  9. …that I cannot do everything and I am going to have to make choices.
  10. …that being horrible to myself was no better than being horrible to other people and that I really wouldn’t make any progress until I started to love myself.

Behind every one of these is a story that was painful and lasted a lot longer than it needed to. Of course I learned a lot, and maybe I wouldn’t have listened even if I had been warned. But I hope that by sharing my experience I can make it easier for the next generation so they can move forward more quickly.
