I love this video with Oprah. In just 3 minutes, she touches on some profound, life changing wisdom that we can all apply to our own lives. Have you ever felt like you're not on track? Like you took the wrong fork in the road? That you made a mistake? Or, maybe that you completely failed at something? I know I can identify with these for multiple choices I've made throughout my life. It would really bother me as I wondered - did I take the wrong path? Did I screw up and miss out on something in my life due to the decisions and choices I made? Am I not even living the path that was meant for me because I kept taking "wrong" turns? These thoughts really weighed me down.
As I've been doing my Spiritual work, and as Oprah states in the video, I've learned that there are no wrong paths. You can get side tracked, take different paths or end up on a detour - but there are no wrong paths. Whew! That really takes the pressure off. So, now that we know that ultimately there is no wrong path, how do we try to stay on the path that resonates most with our Soul? Luckily we've been given road signs - such as how we feel and what life is reflecting back to us. If you feel uneasy, agitated or unhappy with how your life is going, then you've stepped off your Soul's path. It's an indication to move in another direction. Failures and losses are another big road sign. As Oprah says, they are there to wake you up, to redirect you and point you in a different direction. Losses and failures are some of the biggest and toughest, yet most rewarding growth lessons there are. What feels like a lose-lose, is actually a win-win as it provides direction and growth for your Soul.
Another thing that Oprah talks about that I love is that our life is bigger than the moments. How often do we let certain moments define us? We are so much more than any singular event or circumstance or ordeal. They may be defining moments, but they do not designate who we actually are. They do not define our entire life or our Essence.
In order to make our way through life we must become aware of the signs, learn from the hard times and focus on what the next right step is. We often tend to become overwhelmed or focus solely on the problems instead of on the solutions. Oprah offers great advice: 'What is the next right move? From that space, make the next right move and the next and the next.' If during those steps, you find it's not the right move, then you know it's time to change course and start again with the next step that resonates and feels right to you. It's all about the steps, resonating with your path and understanding that, ultimately, there are no wrong paths.
