Without entering into the skills of bowling – something about which I know little – we can ponder the idea of finding the line of our existence amidst the vast possibilities before us.
For some people it could be daunting to be faced with numerous choices and endless opportunities. The sense of feeling overwhelmed in such cases is easily brought to mind. Others may flourish in similar conditions. Finding the line for these folk is, we can imagine, an action without stress.
Evaluating options, weighing up strategies and then deciding, takes time and effort. The alternative could be to follow the masses, hoping they lead us to where we would like to go, or at least to a place not too disturbing for us. It is a personal issue for us all.
It might be argued we all actually know, deep within our heart, the right way for us to live our life. Finding the line is a case of listening, from this perspective, to our inner wisdom and trusting it. Easy to suggest, less so to do, yet very worthwhile for those who are able to do so.
Finding the line, as mentioned is a personal endeavour. If you’d like to join the conversation and offer your observation, please leave a comment below. In the meantime, thanks for reading this ‘Finding the line‘ post today.
