Sailing the seven seas of Life –
When we arrive into this World, we enter as a ship that navigates by the forces of nature and by the power of Spirit. It takes a few years for us to navigate our ship with our own motor.
During this process, we are taken to many ports for a refit to our intellect. We are trained man made ideologies and our Awareness starts to go deep inside within us.
We are taught to accept a new identity and we have to pass many tests of approval. Once we believe we are qualified to be our own navigator, we set out for our voyage of a lifetime.
We stop at many ports to pick up passengers and cargo. Some of these passengers become permanent guests in our lives. Some come for a short trip as they were sent to us to fill a need of advice and guidance, for they knew the waters we were sailing.
Then they went on their way. Some died of a sickness or old age, but their souls stay with us for guidance. They are the angels that we asked to help stay on course and we have to be aware that we need to treat them with Love and respect or else we may encounter a mutiny.
We should always be on guard, for there are dangerous sharks and pirates in the seven seas. Many are after our money and treasures, whilst a few wish to take the joy out of our lives.
There are many other unknown, hazardous ships, we will encounter on our travels and many fly the flag of friendship from a distance, but when we get up close, they hoist the skull and crossbones. And so, we battle the storm and survive, but each battle leaves its scars on our ship.
Once we journey beyond our half way mark, we suddenly get the feeling we might be heading in the wrong direction. We start to understand the real enemy is within our own ship, and the pilot we have so much faith in is an impostor.
It is the same type of impostor that we have been battling in the other pirate ships, only this was planted in our thoughts for many years and has grown in stature and strength. So much so he thinks he can control the ship. When he realizes he does not have any real power, he wants to abandon the ship as it begins to sink.
The captain of our ship is a looser. A false-hearted noone, with no care for anything, except his own importance. He is a clown, who dresses up in a captain’s uniform recognized by Society.
That is why we believed it to be so real, for we have all been flying the wrong flags, because our captains are nothing but sophisticated, adulterated, clowns. The real captain named Soul is still onboard but held captive in the deep recesses of our ship.
Captain Ego needs to retire and become a quiet member of the crew.
The time has come to unlock the chains of imprisonment and allow our authentic, trusted captain to gain mastery of the controls of our ship. To escort us to safe waters, where we can float on a tide of bliss. Each day we will set out to achieve new goals and visit places beyond distant horizons.
We will still encounter many storms along our cruises but we will never fear any assault on our peace and tranquility. Our finely tuned Awareness is enjoying the true order of command. We have turned off the old worn out motor and we are sailing into the sunset with a new Spirit.
Within our life span, everyone will sail the seven seas. We come into this World as a newborn baby and some of us leave within a day or two.
We have still sailed the seven seas, only we did it in a pure ship and in super fast time. Others may sail for over one hundred years. The time-scale is not that important. The quality and value of time spent joyfully is important.
The seven seas are the same for everyone. Only the time frame is a little longer for some. In cosmic terms, there is little difference in a second or a hundred years. The first sail is the experience of a lifetime. So we sail the seven seas of life, until the time comes to set our ship adrift.
We then sail into the infinite calm waves, in the imponderable galax-seas of eternity. Until that day comes, sail your charter on the authentic sensations of love and joy. Only Spirit can award you with a true captain and navigator. Allow each moment to become a soul-filled adventure.
