There is a star in the night sky and it shines for you. It shines down upon that mountain top across the meadow. It shines and shows you the way.
Ah, but why do you not always see it? Because it can only be seen in certain light and at certain times. And the rest of the time, as is true with any star, it is there, but cannot be seen. It is there, shining and showing you the way, but you must simply feel its presence. And every now and then, the conditions are exactly right and the path is laid out before you, shining in the silvery light of your guiding star, and you can walk it easily and in joy.
But even when this is not so, even when you are walking a long dusty, crowded road, even when you are lost in a dense forest, even when you are blindly stumbling in the fog, even then, the star is there within you, a part of your body, giving you direction and showing you the way.
This guidance is within your body like a tuning fork. The best path out of the fog is known in your body. You need only come beneath the fear and doubt and reach your center. You need only learn to breathe yourself down into your center, down into the peaceful pool of peace and feel the truth there.
And the guidance that you will get is not a detailed description of the path before you. No, it is the next step and only the next step, the step which you are to take now. And you must learn to trust that center and take that step when it feels right, because it is your personal truth to do so.
Faith, after all, always requires that you act on truth without understanding why. Do not look for why. Do not even look for the long view. Ask only, what shall I do now, which step shall I take right now, go to your center and find the answer.
Here is a little prayer for today
Today, I am deeply quiet, centered within myself, full of love and peace. Today, I can access the deep pool of peace in my center and receive clear guidance, telling me the right choice to make right now, in this moment.
I am full of truth. I am connected to my guiding star, connected to the intentions of my higher self, connected deeply to all that is.
I am love and light. I am truth. I am.
