We don’t always have to bring knowledge to the path.
Sometimes we simply have to trust that the function of the path is to equip us with what we need, and the moment we announce to the world that we’re ready to take that pivotal first step, the path will being to illuminate itself.
But the terrifying part is, we have to commit. We have to believe that the right path is the one we choose. And we have to have faith that once we’re on it, things will inevitably fall into place.
The universe will keep laying track down in front of our train, as long as we hold up our end of the bargain by being truly serious about the journey.
I recently did an interview on a television show. Towards the end of the segment, the host asked me what the next step in my career was.
But all I could do was shrug my shoulders and say, I have no idea. Which isn’t the most satisfying answer for the viewing audience, and I wasn’t trying to be funny or difficult or evasive, but it’s the truth.
What’s next is a complete mystery to me. In fact, every time I hear the old adage, he who fails to plan, plans to fail, a small part of my soul scrams.
Because in my experience, it’s the opposite.
If you don’t know where you’re going, nobody can stop you. Including yourself.
Sounds like a more interesting path to me. One where freedom asks us to invent our own steps.
