Different people have predicted the apocalypse on different dates. It was on one such D-day when all the planets had aligned perfect, when all these predictions were going to come true, and when all those with spiritual powers were saying that life would never be the same again.
Many were trying to get to place that are powerful spiritually so that they could stay safe. There were also crowd spending all their money and then some because they thought the economy was going to come crashing down anyway. Others were bidding a sad farewell to those close to them.
I was travelling through Europe, completing a spiritual pilgrimage with some other people. One small girl who was just 8 years old was scared because she had been told that it was Doomsday. She asked our guide if all of us could go to a place where we would be safe from all kinds of danger.
The guide merely took her hands and told her that she herself was a place of safety and power. As long as she dwelt on her own spirituality, she would be protected no matter where she goes.
Those words will always stay with me.
I’ve traveled quite a lot and I’ve been fortunate enough to see the most magnificent holy places that the Earth has to offer. I’ve seen the Pyramids in Egypt, Machu Picchu, the vortices of Sedona, Mt. Shasta, Mt. Fuji, Jersusalem, and other spots we have deemed holy. I have loved all the pilgrimages I’ve been on and each place has inspired a sense of awe and wonder within me.
But when I was reading ‘A Course in Miracles’, a particular line made me stop and think. It read: “The holiest spot on earth is where an ancient hatred has become a present love.”
The book says that because we are spiritually aware, our geographical location does not matter. The condition of our spirit is what makes us stronger and protects us. Wherever we can feel God is a Holy site. We can reach awakening by strengthening our relationships and replacing all negative emotions with love.
In all our pride, we believe that if just make some changes, everything will work out. But there is no point quitting your job without sorting out the problems that are driving you away. They will just follow you to your new job. These external changes won’t work unless we change the way we think. After we have healed ourselves, everything else will fall into place.
The world will appear to us as we view it. If we believe that there is safety and kindness in this world, that is the world we will find. All reality begins in our imaginations so it is up to us to choose what we project.
It is definitely a one of a kind experience every time you visit a new sacred spot but rather than trying to find enlightenment in far off lands, we should be looking for it within ourselves.
