A spiritual seeker is often the least popular person in the room. Being that a seeker is often highly perceptive, they know this and silence their Truth. That is why they are lonely in a crowd. They do their best to fit in when in fact, they only widen the divide of belonging by staying quiet.
It never pays to be less than Who-We-Are. Our choice as a seeker is simple. Choose your Truth or choose belonging.
Seekers must learn that belonging is the illusion. Only Truth is real.
For a long time a seeker will be alone, stuck in the need to connect with the world. It seems easier to play along, keep quiet and at least be invited into the room.
Eventually, the seeker loses strength, loses patience, loses hope.
Why is it that we seekers must wait to lose all hope before we journey back to Truth? I’m sad for the lost seekers. I’m also joyful that they are finally on their way Home.
Every day I am stepping out of the crowded room and speaking my Heart. No one exactly knows what I’m talking about. No one actually gets what I’m trying to say. I’m not quite ready to give up on belonging for good, but I know I will let go of it eventually. It will fall away and I will once again be comfortable in any room, even if it’s crowded, vacant or won’t willingly open its doors for me. It will not matter. The rooms, the people, me…none of it matters.
Everything that does matter is within me. I have all the belonging I could every dream of multiplied by a thousand. So do you.
Oh, my Dear Friend! You aren’t lost.
You are finally found.
