Secret messages in plain sight?
Often we are so involved in living our lives that we are are not seeing in our lives. We concentrate on the doing of our lives and never embrace the being of our lives.
I took a vacation with a friends once. She wanted to fly. I said no let’s drive.
She wanted to dash down the interstate. I looked at the map and found that it was much straighter to cut across over the back roads. But it would take more time.
Those back roads were the best part of the road trip.
The plane trip would have missed all of that. The interstate would have by passed most of it. The country roads gave us the way to enjoy the journey and not just the way to get there.
Slow down and take the time to “smell the roses”.
James Taylor had a song “Country Roads”.
Robert Frost’s poem “The Road Less Taken” ends with the line, “And that has made all the difference.”
Here is a way to move onto a slower more spiritual journey.
Anytime something happens, good or bad, stop and ask, “What are ‘you’ trying to tell me?”
Look … Listen … Stop and smell the roses.
That will make all the difference.
