I felt inspired as I watched them slowly crossing the road and it made me think about the rest of us and the life path we are on. How often are we lead, almost blindly where we are meant to go? How often do we reach our destination, even though our eyes aren't focussed on that particular goal? How often do we need to trust we are heading in the right direction, guided by unseen hands? How easy would it be to say 'I can't see where I'm heading, so I refuse to go any further?'
When things are going wrong and life seems like a struggle, I sometimes wonder if it would be easier to just sit there and wait it out. Life seems a lot easier for those people who dodge the obstacles in their life, who find other ways to do what they want, but then, does that mean they miss out on what they are meant to learn? But I wonder, do they reach the destination that they planned or do they find themselves unable to avoid that path later in life, which then leads them to the destination they are meant to 'arrive at'.
If we try to avoid the 'stuff' that causes us sorrow and pain, does it catch up with us in another guise, on another part of our journey? Of course it does. Like when we decide not to take an opportunity because it doesn't feel right, but it is destined to be ours....it comes around again, maybe in a slightly different guise, but it we do revisit it.
We are here to learn a specific amount of lessons, to teach others in many ways and to experience all that life has to offer. Sometimes, it can feel as if we are being guided by unseen hands, especially when we believe we are heading in a particular direction, and when we get to the end of that path, we find the view isn't quite what we expected...in fact its better than we could have anticipated!
Isn't it great when we 'trust' in the journey...in our path?
with love, respect and integrity
