Peter O’Donoghue: Creating The Life You Want With Be, Do, Have

You present some insightful and challenging points. At this point I am conflicted in my “being.” Being retired, married, grandparent many times, and trying to “re-purpose” my life is confusing. I have had careers ranging over forty years, but they fade into insignificance compared to the spiritual awakening I have experienced in the last two years. It should be easier to “be” at 72, but I am finding it extremely frustrating after a life of doing. Feeling that I should be “doing” so much as “Cosmic Messenger,” just “being” feels like being sidelined, helpless, and of diminishing value. I suspect this has more to do with 3D ego than spiritual stasis/acceptance/at-one-ment/wholeness.
Do you have any helpful advice?
