The Cunning Plot
Every human spirit is a powerful and exquisite energy. Yet the twist in the ‘plot’ is that a body is required in order to fully express ourselves, and then the truth of ‘Who am I?’ and ‘What should be my purpose?’ gets easily lost.
It is the aim of Liferoute to help enable each unique human spirit to discover its own path to follow - to fulfil our potential in living the life we are each individually born to live.
Imagine being given a car (= body and mind) but not being taught how to drive. Worse still, we then take the car onto the highway of life, where others are also driving in the same state. Chaos and accidents become inevitable – to ourselves and to other people. Everything sustains damages one way or another – from emotional, mental and physical small dents and scrapes to major crashes and write-offs.
What we are describing here is what can eventually lead to burnout.
Liferoute is like a driving school where we can become the more mindful driver in terms of care, consideration and understanding. We learn how not to make mistakes at the wheel and, by following rules of the road, how to take maximum benefit from everything we encounter along the way. Sounds a bit 'Pollyanna', for sure, but this is what 'advanced driving' is all about - the ability to avoid potential accidents and to steer ourselves safely through to the other side of what we can't avoid.
The Cycle of Give and Receive
All Liferoute activities which are based in Cruden Bay are free events. The space and opportunity are made possible because those who participate make a contribution towards the hospitality provided. In that way, it makes it possible to continue to receive future guests and visitors.
Hosts volunteer their time and other resources at no charge.
