Dancing to the beat of my own drum…
A saying most of us are familiar with. Dancing to the beat of your own drum. What does that mean to you? To me it means listening to my own inner guidance and voice above all else.
But, what happens when the drum goes silent? You’re in the middle of nowhere, blindfolded. The only reason you know where to go is by following the sound of the drum. Then the drum stops. What do you do? Do you stop and wait for the drum to start again? Do you trust you remember where the sound came from and keep going?
Your answer to those questions can tell you a lot about yourself. Do you trust your inner compass and guidance enough to keep going without the drum or do you not yet have enough faith in yourself?
It is like when you have of those moments; the light bulb above your head goes off. The fire in your heart space lights up. Yes! That is it! Now once that moment has past, do you have enough faith in yourself to keep pursuing that idea, that knowing you felt? It doesn’t seem as crystal clear once the moment has passed, now does it?
But sometimes, maybe more than sometimes, we have to take a leap of faith. Believe that even though we can’t hear that drum, have no idea where we are going, or where we will end up: our drum does not lie. Our inner compass is not leading us astray. Our own guidance is the most direct truth.
