— Joseph Campbell (via nirvikalpa)
This is true.
My life is like a rollercoaster- twists and turns and unexpected amazing arches followed by the dips. But whose isn’t? The rollercoaster analogy for life has been used since they were invented.
When your primary focus is yourself, and you consciously take the time to observe your day-to-day, you can find that your path is unique and constantly unfolding for you.
You can’t always tell where it’s going, but why does that matter? When driving, you focus on the few feet in front of your vehicle, not worrying if there’s a pothole or roadblock in seven miles. You just cross those obstacles when you get there. Meanwhile, your duty is to keep moving forward while staying present.
Rollercoasters, driving, life. Let the path unfold as it may.
