The Path

On the path we walk we do not always know in what direction we will turn or why. We only have to walk and decide which path to take. Today I am on a particular path of deciding why I am on the path I am on and as I approach yet another fork, I am embracing my instinctual, yet hesitant urge, to choose something that, on paper, may not be or more importantly, FEEL, like the right path, but only because of societal ideals...money...security...but i walk on the path and if I close my eyes and imagine myself on the path to the right, the one that instinctually feels good, i become enlightened and true and free and know that it is the right place...because if i choose the other one, i have killed my spirit and my love and my reason to be on the path in the first place...not to say it is the wrong path, but if you get better at reading the signs, they are clear..."This path is fine, but it is slippery when wet and there are rocks on the road and merging traffic"....the right path only has one sign...."Freedom". Sure, there may be rocks and curves, but there are also mountains and streams and trees and the kind of smells that carry you through a moment in which you are aware of life's brilliant gifts that are so simple, yet so huge that we cannot comprehend.....All around there is new life in the air with spring, the kind i have not seen much in life...i watch the tree in front every day and marvel at its strength and new life on each branch...the new green sweet leaves that are pushing through and coming back...The stream that is full of new water coming from the snow in the mountains...the unfamiliar bird song that seems to be everywhere these days. Spring. Life......The path to take is the one that feels scary in the gut and makes you uneasy and unsure, but really makes you happy.....hold onto the feeling and let it sit and really ask yourself...what is the way for me? Not, where should I walk for others?


I am taking the road less traveled...and it is perfect.


Love and Understanding.

The times I have taken the road less traveled are the times I have realized that I am not alone. Those have been the happiest moments in my life.
