Some of us stroll gently through life with our chosen paths clearly mapped out, including breath-taking views, serene rest stops and cheerfully infrequent roadblocks. The scenery is full of hand-painted signs that say, “Welcome” and “Have a Lovely Day.” Classical music plays softly in the background.
But for the rest of us, the path we stumble along is often the “road less traveled” unmarked and unpaved. Our scenery is full of garish yellow metal signs that read; “caution – bump ahead” and “danger – watch for falling rocks”. Static plays in the background of our minds. Often without warning, we are hurled off the path, getting tangled in the underbrush and ending up with agonizing bruises.
It is easy to begrudge those around us that don’t seem to struggle, but we need to remind ourselves certain wisdom comes from discord. Take 2017 as an opportunity to reacquaint yourself with our courage, to learn profound lessons and to heal.
Whatever the situation; healing begins with truth, and honest evidence. In 2017, we need to prove all things. And, once we discover the truth, stand on it no matter what. Help defend others who search for and promote the truth instead of taking the official story are gold. Stay on the path, but get on the right path. So many have tried and failed, but they did try. That’s all we can do; but you must use and understand faith, AND, find out where faith comes from. I hope you find out in 2017.
