Your Path

 

 

So, you decided to venture a little further into this apparition I call you! And I am really glad you did. Until we can develop the courage to question all that we have been taught, we will never be able to see beyond the butts of the sheep in front of us. Sorry about that image, butt it is where our eyes are facing.

We are told by philosophers, religious leaders and so-called experts that you must follow your path. You will never go wrong if you stay true to your path.

We’ve never questioned this and we accepted it as truth. So, we endeavor to walk our path and we have no idea what it means to walk our path. We see inspirational pictures showing someone walking on a path heading to some distant destination that’s over the horizon somewhere, insinuating this is how it is done.

Well, imagine if you will, a pristine grassy meadow. Untouched and untrampled.

 

 

 

Or, perhaps a local park after a  winter storm as laid down a new blanket of snow.

 

 

 

As you can see, there is no path, no footprints. That’s because you create your path with every step you take. And with every decision you make, you change your path. If you are following a path that is laid out before you, then you are walking on someone else’s path, not your own. This is the first lesson on your journey. There is no path, until you take your first step.

You must also understand, where to place your foot, to take that first step, and every step after that, requires you to make a decision. The decisions you make are guided by, yup, you guessed it, your programming. This is why it is so important to  de-program ourselves from what we have been taught, and re-program ourselves properly, so the decisions you make in creating your path, will be your decisions, and not someone else’s decisions, or what you have be programmed to do.

So, are you ready to take Your First Step: Then let’s go!
