I dreamed about roads and paths last night. It made me think about the choices that we make it life. How the places I am going, the places I have been are all a part of the journey. When I woke up I remembered a Chinese proverb I once read:
“There are many paths to the top of the mountain, but the view is always the same”
We all have a path, a road, a trail, a street to follow. It is what we choose to make of the road that matters. As Carlos Castanenda once said, perhaps thinking of the Chinese proverb, “All paths are the same, leading nowhere. Therefore, pick a path with heart!”
It is not always easy, but I am going to try to always pick the path with heart. I will undoubtedly forget and veer off course…a lot…but I hope more often than not I will find myself following the path with heart. Which path will you choose?
Below are a few of the paths, roads, trails, and streets I have encountered in my life so far.
