Somewhere in my drive I received a call and it clicked my navigation off, so I began questioning what road to take. I pulled up my maps again and clicked the address and the navigation system began again. As I approached a stop sign the navigation lady told me to turn left in her sweet British accent. But then another voice appeared in the background and she told me to turn right. When it comes to directions it doesn't take much to confuse me, so sitting at the stop sign, I was thoroughly confused. I looked down at my phone and the direction I had just received didn't match the map on my phone.
I pulled over to the side of the road and then it hit me, I had two systems running and it must have happened when I received the phone call. I sat there laughing as it seemed like a wonderful Universal teaching moment.
How many times in our lives are we running an old set of directions all the while trying to make it to a new destination? Perhaps we assume the stance of muscling through, knowing that we are right. Or maybe we become so dependent on another to tell us where to go that we forgot about our own inner knowing. Or maybe we get so distracted by the last thing we were doing that we forget to update our location.
When was the last time you updated your intention? As Rumi so beautifully shares, "Respond to ever call that excites your spirit." As you gaze into your life, how are you crafting a navigational template for your intentions and desires? Remember to update your internal systems so that you can navigate your most extraordinary life. Travel well my friends!
