The sun sets on another day…
Tonight the sunset was blurred as I raced across the state to a new destination.
As I drove tonight I watched the white lines come and go. White lines give us guidance on the road of where we should be, but it is a suggestion more than a rule. Yellow lines, not so much.
As I drove today there was a mass of cars blocking the road and a car behind me flashing his lights over and over. Inches away, he or she was less than patient and after a few moments he slid over the yellow lines, into the medians, and passed everyone. It was bold, it was outside the norm, it was probably not that good of an idea, but it worked. He passed the slow leaders, and sped on his way.
How many times do we follow the rules and get held back? The rules sometimes keep us from finding our center, and sometimes they hold us back. Now I am not saying breaking the rules is always right but it is sometimes necessary.
There was an old movie called the golden child. A seeker was given a quest to follow a path without spilling water. The path was over logs suspended in air and there was a bridge in the center. The path was marked but at one point the hero got off the path, and the path exploded. He said “I thought you said follow the path” the answer came back as the hero should know when not to follow the path.
We have a lot of options in the world. What is right and wrong are sometimes blurred as we determine who we are, who we should be, and the way for our life to be complete. Consider well your path, and make the right decisions for you and others as a conscious thought.
So as the sun sets on another day, watch the Golden Child, it is worth it. Have some fun, laugh hard, and in the end, find the right path and know when to follow it, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy it…
