This Post, along with " Own our Creation" was inspired by my experience with Wolf. Please visit the Wolf page to understand where this came from.
Everything comes to us through our senses. From here, it is interpreted through the mind. I believe that we then bring forward our perception of the event. Based on our experience we then begin to form patterns, or pathways of being, through interpretation.
These pathways can be mitigated by our beliefs, experiences and data input from others. We start to formulate these pathways through the mind from the moment we are born. I will correlate this to a computer, programs working behind the scenes and layered deep within our hard drive.
So often I hear people say......" Well, I am just hard-wired that way"...." This is how I was taught"...." This is the way I have always done it"...
Well, how is that working for you?
For me, when I find myself thinking or using phrases like this I realize I am taking space, because someone is asking me to make a change in how I do something. Change of pattern means I may have to be responsible for my choice. It means I have to work at doing something differently. I am asked to be Out of my comfort zone.... out of my Safe Place....Out of My Normal....now how scary is that?
I too have patterns I still repeat and some I have learned to re-route through a New Pathway.

Somewhere along the way I learned that I did not always have to do things based on what others told me. Sometimes these came with agendas to meet their needs, not my needs. I could do it differently. Then came the baby steps. I changed one little pattern, or pathway of being. When I realized it was not as hard as I perceived it to be, I changed another. For me, this brought me to conscious choices through knowing myself. ( Within the Teachings of Wolf, in the aloneness of a Power Place, you may find the True You)
I say this, because when you start to change the way you choose, it makes those around you uncomfortable. You may hear..." I just don't understand you anymore"..." I don't know who you are anymore"
However, within this, you are igniting the fire for change. You do this by changing the Perception within your Mind as to how your Spirit fits in with the Whole. Is your purpose being directed by others? ....or ....Are you in charge of your purpose of direction?....This is not always clear. Sometimes we feel manipulated. Sometimes we will choose for others. When we choose for others, know....you made the choice. There is freedom in that.

When you open that Doorway and walk through, a pathway of opportunity lays before you. You are now the Artist of your own Destiny. It may start and stop. It may take a side path...but know that " You Chose."
When you feel you have strayed from what you Perceive you Pathway to be...know too that this perception can change within the re-routing of your pathways. Your Spirit will always guide you back.
Answer the Calling of your Spirit. Choose your own Pathway. Be open to the Inner Guidance.
The Journey Begins Here...just open the Door...
