By now you are aware of the fact that when you allow ordinary, everyday gurus to enter your life, they offer you great tips that aid you in living better. Darlene shares a great example of that. Let’s take a look
I met a guru. I was hiking up a steep grass hill and got half way to the top to realize that when I turned around I had a beautiful view of the town below. I thought, why go any higher? I was about to turn around and go back down when I met a woman who had just hiked all the way to the top. She told me not to quit now but keep going, the view gets even better. I took her advice and I hiked to the top. Am I really glad I did. The view from the top was spectacular. I could see not only the town, but beyond it. And what I saw beyond it was a beautiful lake at the bottom of a mountain with the sun glistening on the water. I never expected to see something that beautiful.
I consider that hiker my everyday guru because she reminded me that I can see things much better if I am willing to go higher than what my beliefs and assumptions offer. You taught me that in one of your blogs, but she made it stick in my mind just by telling me to climb higher up the hill. Does that make sense?
I like this interaction we have with you, Darlene
It is interesting how we can receive messages symbolically. Yes, that hiker was your guru. Yes, she reminded you that when you change your position from which you are looking at life, you can look at things from a very different perspective, and consequently see things very differently. In other words, when you climb above what your strongly held beliefs insist is true, you often get a very different point of view, and that can be a wonderful gift to you. Open-mindedness begets great life-lessons.
Thank you for that, Darlene, and I also love these interactions we have.
Blessing to you, Rob
Well folks, what you do you think? Have you ever noticed that when you are willing to rise above your preconceived notions of how life is, oftentimes you find startlingly wonderful answers that you’d never imagined? These blogs can serve as great rescuing ropes when we are caught in a well, refusing to see anything new. They can remind you that there is a whole lot more to life and a whole lot more to you if you are willing to elevate your point of view.
Blessings and Love, Rob
PS You can insist that what you see in your life right now is all there is to see, or you can rise higher and gain a new point of view. What shall it be for you?
