Do You Have a Path?
Does everyone have a path in life? Some obviously do. For many, it is not so clear. Some find that over a lifetime, it is one's family that provides meaning. Others follow spiritual paths. Yet for others, a career path dominates. Some dispair that they have found no path at all.
I believe that the reason we have "paths" in life is ultimately to go inward - to find our deepest and truest self. To know the part of us that watches what we are doing, and what is being done to us. This is a part that knows, at some deep level, one's personal truth and whether or not it is being honored.
To become familiar with one's inner self, people search for spiritual teachers, go to therapy, read, and contemplate. Although self-knowledge may beyond the details of our everyday activities and problems, these detail can also point us in the direction of what we need to know.
