At the crossroad and beyond
It is good to set out on the unknown path.
It is good to keep following that path and don’t get discouraged by the outer circumstances or unfavourable voices that are always rooted in fear.
It is also sometimes good to be stubborn and pig-headed and to follow your inner voice regardless of the difficulties and losses. To persist.
Yet sometimes it is good to ease up and to bend before the resistance of life. Not to beat your head against the wall. And perhaps walk a path more walked for some time. It might happen that after a short period of time it will bring us back to “our” path. Which, by stubbornly beating our head against the wall, we are trying to find. We just don’t have a view good enough at that time and therefore we don’t see the next step.
For at the end all paths will ultimately bring us to the same place.
Though it matters what kind of path are we walking towards the end. Even if it’s not our choice at all.
And as we are not walking towards the end the same path, nor the reward at the end of the path can be equal.
If we were walking a well-known and well-trodden path towards the end, we won’t come to know anything new. Because we won’t be walking that path as first. It would indeed be an easy path but also a mass-walked. And therefore our reward will also be common.
For because silver has got its discovery site and gold a place where it’s purified. The iron is obtained from the ground and from the ore copper is melted down. Yet on the mass-walked path the gold, the silver or even the copper we won’t find…
