Stepping Off


“We always know which is the best road to follow, but we follow only the road that we have become accustomed to.”
― Paulo Coelho


There is something in our nature that is prone to follow the path of least resistance. I know of many people who exist in lives that they don’t enjoy and may even hate only because it is what they are used to. They may even realize that they have to make changes in order to have a more fulfilled happier lives and yet they stick to the same routines no matter how self-injurious they may be. About the only way for them to get off that merry-go-round is to shock them out of their complacency in some way. Eventually the universe, our sub-conscious or our spiritual selves (depending on your paradigm) will set events in motion to snap us out of it. Either we meet just the right teacher or our lives fall apart in just the right way to effect an awakening that this is not how our lives have to be. When this happens we have a choice. We can either try to reassemble our lives in the pattern that we’ve been following or we can step off of that road and find another one. One that may be truer to what our inner voice tells us is a better life. All too often we chose the former out of a fear of the unknown. However, if we can grasp the vision, our lives can be so much better if we just step off.
Blessings, G

  1. That reminds me of a therapeutic technique I’ve heard about. If you want to break some negative pattern in your life, the advice is to “do one thing differently.” It doesn’t have to be related to the pattern you want to change. Just do one thing differently than you’ve been doing it in the past, and that change will begin to free your mind from its ruts, thus later enabling you to make the bigger, more significant change you’re looking for.
