Any Given Path

“It was the straying that found the path direct.”
–Austin Osman Spare

 

Certain themes seem to keep coming up for me. One of them is definitely the idea that one’s path is unique and that whenever we are following a defined (whether religious, social, political or philosophical ) road that others have set before us, it is not that we are following that path as much as that path has temporarily become part of our own. It may seem a minor distinction but it is a crucial one. By Temporarily, it can be years but even in a case where we have joined a monastic order, we will not hold exactly the same beliefs or interpretations of that belief as any other person there. Nor will we be coming to it with exactly the same background so even then our path is a unique one. Often the farther we stray from any GIVEN path, the more we find our own.
Blessings, G

  1. As to me I still can not exactly define what it is – “The Path”. I feel sometimes I’m led but not lead it. Probably it’s a kind of promenade or stroll or stray or whatever the purpose of this “walking” around and along and the velocity matters as well.
