Wherever we are, we are on the path leading us somewhere. Before dismissing this statement as being obvious, we might wish to examine each component of it to establish its veracity.
Putting aside our physical location – I appreciate you may be reading this on one of many available platforms and indeed from a place beyond my imagination – our personal growth is itself situated on the path we have, as individuals, created for ourselves.
Our personalized development programme is set according to our heartfelt objectives and outlook on life. Being ‘on the path‘ in this way is much about being our best, pointing us to an existence in which our potential is able to shine bright.
The eventual destination our efforts will ideally lead us to could turn out to be different to the one imagined at the start of the journey on the path. Life provides its own twists and turns, some of which cannot be anticipated or planned for.
Exploration of our feelings on the path is, at times, a method to discover the attachment we have with this adventure. The presence of pleasure, curiosity and/or enthusiasm may suggest we are in actual fact on the path best suited to our true self.
So, on the path taking you towards your goals, how do you feel right now?
