"Please Stay on the Path"
"There is freedom in commitment."
Some years ago, I heard this phrase for the first time from T. Harvey Ecker.
Once this concept is verbalized in the mind, accepted and practiced, it's truth is clarified. Then, commitment starts to make more sense as a go-to-strategy in life.
In my commitment to yoga and theosophy, to motherhood, to truth and love, to living up to the highest virtues and ideals, I feel free in that at least I know what to do, what to work on. And when I feel a set back, when I feel I have temporarily failed, I, without question, try again, but with more energy and love to fuel it.
Commitment simplifies life's complexities
I'm committed and I will stick with the commitments I FEEL are good, true, and right. There is no question in my mind about whether to stick with it... I stick with it and that's it. The hardest part is the KNOWING of what to commit to. I know I struggled through that for years. No one ever knows what these commitments are, the good, true, and right, from the beginning. These are things we learn along the way when we look for them, or they look for us and we recognize them. It's vital to have faith that the knowledge will come when the time is right.
helps us do away with the habitual doubting of our abilities and our feelings. Then, we can FEEL that a commitment is right when it appears. Nothing I'm saying here is new, it's just a re-worded bundle of lessons that many people have experienced. I'm so glad I got to learn them too. Keep your heart open for the path, and when you find it:
Please Stay on the Path
