Life is a Journey
The Universe knows what you need
“Your journey has moulded you for the greater good. It was exactly what it needed to be. Don’t think you’ve lost time. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is the right time” – Asha Tyson
To be a good traveller, we need to know how to read a map, and get well prepared for the journey. There are so many things which are not important distracting us along the way, so we have to be wise on our journey. We should remember that when we were first born we had nothing, we started life’s journey with empty hands. Along the way we grasped at many things, thinking that possessions could make us happy: in fact they were distractions or burdens which delayed us on our journey. We should carry only the necessities of life, and be contented with what we have. In this way we can find happiness, because it is easy to get if we have right understanding. On the other hand if we are burdened with ignorance, even though happiness is within reach, we cannot experience it. If we have everything, but lack right understanding, life is troublesome. For instance, a man with a lot of money but no wisdom, may use his money to buy things which destroy his own life. As long as we have wisdom, or right understanding, we do not fear either loss or gain, in life.
Some people ask where is the human destination. The answer is that the destination is in every step of life. It is along the journey. Some might think it is the future, so they are worried about it. In fact it is right here and now; it is what we experience in the present life. If we hold on to many things, we will be depressed. This means that we get stuck. If we are contented with what we have, we can get happiness. Success is with us today, it is not in the future. What have you done today? What have you gained today? These questions should be asked so we can know where we are now, or how far we can get. Where are you now?
