Early Sunday morning I sit here and think to myself just how lucky I am to be healthy and alive in this world I live in. I live in a nice home, married my best friend and love the work I do each day. Everything I dreamed about years ago have pretty much come true for me. There really isn’t too much else I desire in this life as I have discovered that the best things in life really aren’t things at all.
There are many paths to choose from as we walk through this life and I have learned that when we reach a point where the path before us divides into many, we simply need to stop. Yes, just stop, relax, close our eyes and dream of the direction we must choose. Soon there comes many clues and positive answers to come our way and lead us on our journey. Sometimes just moments and sometimes months go by before us, when all of sudden we just know the direction we must go.
Even now, at the age of 56 I continue down this path of life and experience these “Y” sections before me. My dreams and aspirations continue to lead me to a life of peace and tranquility. Yes, getting older is a tough reality and can offer some pretty significant challenges along the way. There are and will continue to be roadblocks to encounter along this ancient path that many have walked before me. With each I will rely on the spiritual guidance of universal energy to help me move forward.
There have been many times that I have just freaked out and become bitter as objects got in my way along a path that I should have never been walking on the first place. Simply put, my desires were not in alignment with the forces that guide me. Looking back at many of the areas of life that I wondered into have taught me to be patient. Sometimes the things that you believe that you want are actually envious desires of others. Yes, sometimes we cross paths with others on a different journey and get sidetracked and lose our way. But as time goes by we soon realize that we have lost our way and must return to that path of life we were born to walk on. And once we do find our way back we know it. The world around us is brighter, we smile more and find great joy in all that surrounds us.
