“Dear Saint-Germain, Spirit teaches us to be true to ourselves, to our joy. I am married, with two children, and I am working in a job that I don't like, just in order to support my wife and children. I feel like just breaking free from it all and disappearing to a remote monastery somewhere in the mountains, or to just travel and be free to be myself. How can I do something like this, when I have a wife and two children to support?”
My friend, indeed, this is a situation that strikes right at the core of the matter. How are you able to take care of your spiritual and human needs, especially when you are also taking care of the needs of other people, too? And in this case, these people are your wife and children.
I understand that you are feeling frustrated, and that you would like to bring change into your life. But before you make any impulsive decision about where to go, and what to do, I invite you first to stop for a moment and breathe.
It is natural for all humans to want to break free from limitations, and to want to move into better life conditions, especially when they are feeling the way you feel right now.
However, dropping everything that you've invested yourself in, and in the life that you've created for yourself and your loved ones, will not make you happier. I am not trying to discourage you here. But the idea of living in a monastery will not make you happy for very long, even though it seems like it would right now. But you know this already, otherwise you would have chosen this path, instead of questioning it, as you are doing right now.
It is important, however, to recognize your deeper needs in this situation. These need to receive your attention now, very urgently. These needs have created a kind of uprising within you; they are wanting you to focus your attention on something fundamentally important. You have been neglecting these long enough now, that you are feeling suffocated by your current situation; so you need to turn your attention to them now.
The thing that is fundamentally important right now is to take time for yourself. You need to take care of yourself first. Do this, in appropriate ways, before taking care of others. Nurture, strengthen, and renew yourself now. This will not exempt you from your responsibilities toward others in your life, nor do you really desire this. But it will help you to put your responsibilities into proper perspective.
You see, when you have created a balanced perspective about satisfying your needs and the needs of your loved ones, then you will gain clarity and maintain a compassionate view of things at the same time. You will better understand your motivations, and you will be able to shed some light on what has brought feelings of unhappiness and restriction into your life. Then you will see what your evolving needs are at this time, and how you can best take care of them within the loving network of relationships that you have created.
When you do, the sense of fulfillment that comes from attending to these needs will open the channels of communicating with your Soul, and will invite greater ease and joy into your life.
So, my dear… the important question for you right now is, how can you better take care of yourself? What can you do to improve the way your personal needs are met?
The most important step I would encourage you to take now is to reconsider the beliefs and assumptions behind the question that you have asked. You said, “I am working in a job that I don't like, just in order to support my wife and children. I feel like just breaking free from it all…” You are clearly feeling restricted and unhappy with this situation, and you are looking for relief. You are looking to have basic needs met. But what are the needs? Ask yourself this.
For example, is one of your basic needs to provide for your physical safety and security, and for that of your loved ones? Or is your basic need to feel accomplished as an individual; whole and complete in the work and service that you provide to others? Perhaps your basic need is to attend to the relatedness, love, and sense of belonging that you experience with your family? Or maybe the main need you have now is beyond family, self, and biological security? Perhaps it is more trans-personal? Maybe you are longing for connections with All Life, that your current situation is not satisfying.
It is also quite possible that all of these needs may be legitimate and interacting at the same time. But you must look at them. And as you do, you will begin to feel the authenticity of each one, and have a better understanding of what you may need to do, or allow, in order to satisfy them.
Give these questions some thought, but do not dramatize your situation. Give yourself the time to see how your real needs are revealed to you, and observe yourself in the process. You will find ways that you can do things differently, and this will enable you to move beyond this feeling that your needs don't matter.
You do matter to many, and you are loved beyond words, my friend. Thank you for your question.
Would you like to know more about your Soul's plan for you in this lifetime?
