Your outer journey may contain a million steps. Your inner journey only has one; the step you’re taking right now. (Eckhart Tolle)
“As you become more deeply aware of this one step, you realize that it already contains within itself all of the other steps as well as the destination. This one step then becomes transformed into an expression of perfection.” -Eckhart Tolle
We do have an outer journey—a reason for being that shapes the way we are meant to serve others and create. But the outer journey is never more important than our inner journey. Nothing can be gained in the future which can be considered important enough to sacrifice the quality of your consciousness at this moment.
By focusing on this one step—becoming fully present in the now—your outer journey becomes an almost effortless extension of the inner journey. When you go within, you allow love and intuition to effortlessly guide every step. You remain calm, centered, maximally efficient because you waste no time and energy on drama and confusion.
The only step that means anything is the step of awakening from time. Feel the inner body, align with love, make feeling good your only priority. Now, from this state of zen, take the million steps along the journey to fulfill your outer purpose. Establish a daily spiritual practice so that you do not lose site of the inner journey.
We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
