I can remember sitting in front of my computer. Pen and paper in hand. Scribbling some notes and eventually paragraphs. Turning into three pages of more paragraphs. Glancing over at my computer. I laughed at myself. Realizing that the computer would be more efficient. The process of documenting my story. Would turn out to be quite a learning curve. For the computer illiterate bike builder from Alberta, Canada. And there it was. Right in front of me! The incarnation of my first book. MY LIFE MY STORY MY JOURNEY & A TALL TALE.
I had always had a spiritual nature. And had been curious about the universe and all its fascination and intrigue. That many had no time to contemplate. But this time in my life had come to a crossroads. Deciding to take the path less traveled. So, setting my sights on the unknown. I grabbed my crook. And my pilgrimage began.
I had always been accustomed to solitude. Becoming a way of life for me, I had become content with the isolation from society. For the most part. And began my search for self. Taking me in every direction imaginable. Books, social media pages, psychics, tarot cards readers, etc. My decision to take the path less traveled had turned out to be the right choice. Intuition telling me to continue. So, I did.
Learning that eastern philosophies were anchored heavily in spirituality. I became emersed in teachings of the eastern world. Adopting practices into my daily life. Which brought me more peace. Grounding me more to mother earth. Was giving me a different perspective on what was around me. Enlightening me on the tapestry of the bigger pitcher.
This painted a whole different picture. To what I had been taught by my parents, teachers, and western society as I grew up. Being led in this new direction or should I say guided. Was really resonating with me. So, I continued. And became aware of my consciousness. Enabling me to focus in on the tapestry of the bigger pitcher. Knowing that everyone had a part to play. And the tapestry was not yet complete.
Through my search for self. I had discovered that I had become programmed to be like everyone else. And follow a certain criteria. Laid out before everyone as a generic template to follow. Throughout our lives. Deciding to deprogram as much as possible. I found myself transforming into my authentic self. Shifting my consciousness to a new awareness. I was finding harmony with peace within the chaotic world in which I lived.
