The Hermit

When we are learning to create the life we want, we often look outside ourselves for instruction. We might turn to text and documents to learn the art of manifestation. We may seek teachers or spiritual guides to help illuminate the mystery of creating our reality. Sometimes we turn to outside sources to determine what it is we should want, what we should know, what we should do.

What we often overlook is our own selves as our greatest source for wisdom. We forget that we are the experts of our own lives, and that most often we are our own greatest source of guidance. It is during moments of solitude, of quiet introspection, when we find our deepest and greatest truths. It is within this truth where we find pure creation. It is from this unadulterated connection to our own being that emanates the purest essence of our manifestation.

Creating our reality is based on the central part of this action in and of itself; it is our own reality we are creating. We provide ourselves the blueprints from which to construct our lives. We are our own source, we are our own wellspring of being. It is most often where we need to look, where we need to reach to find ourselves. When we live our own truths, we release ourselves from doctrine, from codices, from designs of living that are meant to serve more as a template, a suggestion. When we look to others for guidance, let us not look to the specific steps or paths they have taken. Let us look to how well they follow their own truths. Let us be inspired to live in alignment with our own inner light.
