22-231 Pathways

(apologies for the less than ideal image quality)

Today’s Mandala

“Pursue some path,
however narrow and crooked,
in which you can walk
with love and reverence.”

— Henry David Thoreau

“The river is constantly
turning and bending
and you never know
where it’s going to go
and where you’ll wind up.
Following the bend in the river
and staying on your own path
means that you are on the right track.
Don’t let anyone deter you from that.”

— Eartha Kitt

“The path to our destination
is not always a straight one.
We go down the wrong road,
we get lost, we turn back.
Maybe it doesn’t matter
which road we embark on.
Maybe what matters is
that we embark.” 

— Barbara Hall

Today’s MotD reminds us that all pathways lead to our destination. Some are shorter, some are longer, some are straightforward, some are curved, some are more adventuresome, some are more subdued. Our challenge becomes letting go of worrying about which one to take.

We are encouraged to become more aware of how different pathways (choices) feel. Do we feel empowered, excited, uplifted (and maybe wee bit scary) or do we feel constricted, small, or pulled down. Practice with easier, less impactful decisions. As we gain more success and confidence with choosing the pathway based on how it feels, we can move on to bigger pathways. Ultimately, when in doubt go with the pathway that feels empowering.
