We arrive at the mall, and head for the entrance.
For some reason I am always there first, my friend last, and every time she is just as surprised as last time. And no, it is not because I want to go there most. The secret is that I am easily distracted by small things, though never from my goal. She is never distracted by anything, she just waits for it to pass. So I dart here and there, avoid cars and people and weave my way towards my goal. While she stops and waits when somebody gets in her way, never wavering a yard from her true path.
It does not really matter of course, who comes first to a mall. I do try to apply my whimsical walks to other paths of life though.
What if I, discussing truth, life, death, the big questions, am so sure of the right path and just forces my way to my chosen solution?
What if I, not heeding any hinders, just insists on what the best course is?
Or, what happens in real life, when we stop the considering other people as hindering us from our set path, and see each other as our only way of discovering our true path?
Ah, Solveig, I was meant to read this tonight. Thank you. I tend to get ‘tunnel vision’ and blame obstructions. I think we are happier darting about like you.
I am glad to hear that, Kate! My challenge is to still keep my eyes and heart on where I am going!
