The Great Divide
As I look over the long bridge that crosses the great divide. I ask myself time and time again, how will I get to the other side. The other side where there is peace and a true connection to my spiritual being and inner guidance. It’s a daily journey that requires awareness. It has only been within the past year that I have come into the awareness. The awareness of what is required to be on the other side. It takes work. It takes effort. It takes a mindful awareness of our every thought and action.
Many times I struggle to get to the other side. At times, the bridge appears so long and the journey prolonged. Prolonged by my thoughts and actions. I have to keep reminding myself to keep moving. Keep moving toward the other side of the bridge. Many obstacles appear on this great divide. The obstacle of fear that perhaps the bridge will collapse. Obstacles in the form of loss of someone special, job stress, financial issues or just lack of family and friends support along the way. Obstacles slow me down but always end of teaching me a lesson that ultimately aids in crossing the great divide.
Many times I choose to stay on the side of the bridge where I am not at peace? The side where I am not in touch with my inner guidance. The side where I am worried and fearful. The side where I am unhappy. The side where I am void and empty. For me, it takes daily meditation and prayer to remember that there is another side. Yes the bridge can seem very long when looking at it and there have been times when I’ve wondered if I would make it across.
It has been my experience that we spend time on both sides of the bridge. We also must spend time on the bridge, making our way to the other side. My pastor once said, “When one door closes, another one opens but the hallway in between can be hell.” Crossing the great divide to the other side can be hell with all the obstacles. I am learning more and more how to close the great divide. How to spend the majority of my time on the side of the great divide where there is love, peace, prosperity, and happiness. It is a choice.
