Path of Spirit
Do you often focus on your goals, your target, imagining the life you want to be living? I know I lose myself that way from time to time – that’s why I’m writing this piece right now. I’m tired of running in circles, chasing ill defined measures of “success”.
The path of spirit is not as straight as your mind would have you believe.
Lately I’ve started challenging all the definitions and preconceptions floating around in my head, and they have slowly given rise to some very interesting questions: Do I even need to define a destination, and end to my path? Isn’t that besides the point of living, isn’t every step along the way a worthy place to reach?
Why does the notion of already being where we need to be sound so absurd to the logical mind? Why are we unable to just stop and look around?
If you narrow your own view to the point where you can only see straight ahead it can surely turn you into an efficient machine, but it also makes you miss all the beauty present in life. This world is surprisingly malleable – whenever you’re not sure where you’re going, all you have to do is to set one foot before the other with intention, and a new way will form itself before you.
Never be afraid of straying a bit. When you walk all paths of life as if they were only one, you will never get lost.
