A Wandering Soul
Have you ever met people who seem to be floating through life, never finding a place to belong. It's not that they are any less committed to a cause or where they are at the time, but it's as if they can only stay in one place for a short time. It's as if they have a calling to continue their journey elsewhere. It may not be important to them to form attachments, as it is to search for what their spirit is seeking. We find ourselves feeling sorry for these lost souls, but what do we know of their journey. It may be that they themselves are listening more closely to their universal plan than we are. We are so quick to judge those that we don't understand or are different from us. Just as we are sometimes pulled by our spirit to do something of purpose, they may also. So instead of feeling sorry for them or getting upset because we don't understand their ways, we can be compassionate that their path is a challenging one and they are only being true to where their spirit leads them. A wandering soul may be one of the most misunderstood people in the universe.
The honu has a spirit that guides many of us...
(I am the first to say that a wandering soul makes me uncomfortable. To understand what is the total opposite of what I am is difficult. I know that these spirits are put in my path to teach me patience and tolerance. I don't think I'm a quick learner because there are always wandering people around me all the time.)
