Life is like a journey on a long and winding path that leads up a hill to a beautiful castle. There are no elevators or escalators, and very few steps on the path. There are steep banks, slippery rocks, fallen branches, and even mudslides.
As one gains understanding of how to traverse the terrain upward, the journey becomes more delightful. One of the understandings that makes the journey easier is to learn how to use obstacles on the path. Every obstacle, every challenge can be used for self-enhancement, which not only makes the journey easier, but also makes it more interesting.
Student: Sometimes I don’t know if I can keep going.
Life: Keep going. I will show you where you are going wrong. Do this and trust, and the next step will reveal itself to you on every turn.
