I see the obstacles on my path…as the path
“I see the obstacles on my path…as the path”. Wow. Yes.
These ten words struck my heart the instant I heard them, resonating so deeply. I scrambled for a piece of paper and pen so to not forget them.
Truly a huge shift happened. Right there, within me. This beautiful combination of letters…would carry me to new places, no doubt…mind, heart, spirit, soul. I felt it.
Isn’t that the sign of a significant shift? Sometimes it comes in the form of instant clarity. It resonates. It has meaning.
I quickly checked, hoping to find the author of these profound words, and learned they are similar to a Zen proverb, “The Obstacle is the Path.”
There is intentional depth here. I certainly felt it…and needed it as well.
The day these words captured my attention, the speaker added to the Zen wording. “I see the obstacles on my path…as the path.” Yes. It needs that…personalizes it. This is my journey to travel…obstacles and all. I know we all have a soul plan. There is definitely more to everything.
Today, armed with these ten powerful words, I see the obstacles on my path…as my path. I’m owning it all, even in my vulnerability. I, too, will cringe at times or be completely blind-sided by a life experience I am facing, not knowing the outcome…but I do trust in something more…
I learned this from grief. Because there is more. There is a spiritual journey that does not give up on us.
Each of us is on a path that is designed, yes, soul planned for us with our kids. If you’re reading this I know you are willing to go the extra mile to understand this journey too.
We want to help you live within the challenges and the depths of this extraordinary love…
Those of you who know me, know Scott, my son in Spirit, my teacher, my inspiration, my words.
He took me on a trip a few days ago. I did not leave home. He did it in the middle of the night, as I struggled with an immensely painful migraine. I was very aware he was present as I faced this human reality in the dark of night…and I begged him for healing, insights, anything to bring meaning to so much pain.
He opened me up to a new aspect of my journey, through this obstacle of overwhelming physical pain…

Let’s look at Unconditional Love.
When you know this Love is real, true, bold, and everlasting can you trust it like never before?
Can Love carry you through the darkest nights and the darkest days…knowing there is unwavering spiritual commitment keeping you and your loved ones together, seen or unseen?
Sara, my mom of many lifetimes, never could have imagined a lifetime without me…only to learn, see, know, and be confirmed without a doubt…I never left her side.
How many hoops has she jumped through? How many obstacles has she faced and overcome? How many excruciating headaches? Too many to count in the nearly twenty-six years since I transitioned…within my soul planned exit.
Are you asking why I, as Scott, would not release Mom’s pain, allowing her to feel whole and healthy in every way? Isn’t that Love?
Mom/Sara has learned there is more in everything. She knows these obstacles are her path. She endures. She listens. She asks. She will wait in the silence. She does the hard work she needs to. She trusts me to guide her. She knows in the end…she will be filled with needed wisdom and awareness for her journey…and for the greater good.
Spirit knows what you need. It may not be what you want…but it is what you need as a spiritual being in a human body. You came to earth to grow in awareness through challenges, discovery, pain, joy, Love, relationships, finding Who you are…and so much more.
We are here…within it all…with you. Forever.
With unconditional Love.
Trust the journey.
