It's time to look up



Metaphorically, I've spent a lot of time lately with my eyes on the ground right in front of my feet, dodging and weaving around the pitfalls, one step at a time. I'll have to do that for a little while longer, but I'm frankly getting tired of it.

What I'm looking forward to is the time when I can lift my head and look into the middle distance to see, rather than daily ups and downs, the more even progress of the larger path that I'm on. Only on that scale can I see whether it's going up or going down, and more importantly, only on that scale can I see how to choose the path I want for my life.

Here is a don Juan quote (Carlos Casaneda) that may be too out of context, but let's give it a try:

"For me there is only the traveling on the paths that have a heart, on any path that may have a heart. There I travel, and the only worthwhile challenge for me is to traverse its full length...."

In another place he says:

"All paths are the same: they lead nowhere. However, a path without a heart is never enjoyable. On the other hand, a path with heart is easy... as long as a man follows it, he is one with it."
