When The Spiritual Path Leads Us Away From Home

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
a while ago I shared an article called “8 common life changes on the awakening path“, which included  many details of what appear for many people who have committed themselves to walking a spiritual path. One of this occurrences in the process of awakening into the Golden Age of Aquarius is a possible change in physical location. Some people feel called to travel over and over again, and others to relocate themselves for long-term to another home. What is important to evaluate individually for the continuation of healthy human relationships, is to let the people in our life know that we do not go away from them, but towards our true self. 

A need to Travel maybe even Live in a Different Culture
The Dalai Lama said “Once a year go someplace you’ve never been before”.  After we started digging deep in our personal little family clan, friendship circle and social field for ideas and concepts, that do not fit our experience or desire for this world – we naturally develop a curtain curiosity to explore how many more illusions, fears and separating thoughts, there might be discovered in other cultures. This can come as the quiet call to pack your bags and travel the world for a while, that can be a very clear message from a particular place or the urgent demand to go and live in a different place.
This is how it happened for me. After I had spend year of taking training’s, spending coaching hours and seminar visits I still had the feeling my life is not mine, I asked the spirit guides for my soul path. The answer came crystal clear, that I will not ever find the fulfillment of my soul’s purpose in my birth country Austria. Within a week Guatemala came to me in a meditation, and provided me a loving second home ever since.

And still, after all this time,
The sun never says to the earth,
“You owe Me.”

Look what happens with
A love like that,
It lights the Whole Sky.
Hafez Bilbo’s Last Song
Day is ended, dim my eyes,
But journey long before me lies.
Farewell, friends! I hear the call.
The ship’s beside the stony wall.

Foam is white and waves are grey;
Beyond the sunset leads my way.
Foam is salt, the wind is free;
I hear the rising of the Sea.

Farewell, friends! The sails are set,
The wind is east, the moorings fret.
Shadows long before me lie,
Beneath the ever-bending sky,

But islands lie behind the Sun
That I shall raise here all is done;
Lands there are to west of west,
Where night is quiet and sleep is rest.

Guided by the Lonely Star,
Beyond the utmost harbor bar,
I’ll find the heavens fair and free,
And beaches of the Starlit Sea.

Ship, my ship! I seek the West,
And fields and mountains ever blessed.
Farewell to Middle-earth at last.
I see the star above my mast!

Love and Safe Travels!!
Edith
