We are not of the same mind set that we were ten, five…even one year ago. We learn at
different rates and according to paths and choices. There are many smooth paths,
seemingly ‘easy’ ways that do not have heart nor spirit (the simplest of tests to
know which one we are on). The one that has heart and spirit is laden with
obstacles, rocks and mountains to climb over.
We circumvent these by different
methods, some far more difficult than others. There are three enormous mountains on
this path always looming behind us, and they are great teachers. Their names are
should’ve, could’ve and would’ve. The very worst mistake we can make (and often do)
is turning back to focus our attention on them, since they are so compelling in
their call for us to return and climb them again that we can become mired for a long
time–BUT, we will see them again while moving forward, only they will have different
They are called can, will and should, and the name of this mountain range is
called choice. This is, of course, a simple analogy. Analogies can be useful in
learning life’s lessons if we allow them to be. I use them all the time. Our lives
here are spiritual tests and the lessons learned often come with a steep price tag.
They may involve great physical, emotional and/or spiritual suffering. If they are
accepted with this understanding (and keeping a sense of humor of the greater
picture involved–quite difficult at times, I know), the path will be traversed in a
far shorter time.
We are often pulled toward choices that lead nowhere, or worse–to
adding more darkness to a realm that has far too much already. I always ask myself
if my choice has purpose, where will it lead and what will it do? It is better to
light one candle…
