Road less traveled
“The road less traveled,” what exactly does that mean? It is not literally a road, but a direction in which one has chosen to travel. It is a choice. It is a notion about how one chooses to live his/her life. Thousands of smaller choices support the principal choice or purpose of a person’s life. Many of the choices are made at a subconscious level, never-the-less the choices are internal; each choice taking the soul further along its chosen path or diverting into a new adventure or unscheduled stopover along the way.
It is these extended experiences that permit you to recognize that you are on course or not, because you evaluate your life from a stage of relationship. For example if you realize that you have run of the road into the ditch, you notice that you are not on the road moving in your intended direction.
You may be headed to the East coast from the West, and how long it takes you is determined mostly by how many times you have turned north or south. The road less travelled is less or more composed of those side trips. The journey from East to West never ends and you eventually encounter the starting point.
Your trip can last as much as a single heartbeat or extended over several lifetimes. Previous choices need not be re-experienced in any other lifetime in order to achieve enlightenment. It’s the natural order of all that’s to move forward. The knowledge doesn’t die with the person but becomes common knowledge in the collective. Our choices become evident in our lifetime during the physical objects that we bring and bring into our lives.
We create the road less travelled through choice. By accessing the knowledge that is ours through previous lifetimes, we can enrich our lives in this time period. The road less travelled is yours distinctively. Nobody else can experience it in exactly the same way; your life can never be replicated, only replicated. Your life makes for good copy, with all of its side trips and tourist traps that were chosen in a lifetime. Others will want to follow and have the same experiences. None will be able to achieve what you’ve done.
The road less travelled is the life’s experiences, it is what you are doing here, it is not a place you go to, it’s what you’re creating. The journey is in fact a road that no one else can travel. Don’t hunt, the road less travelled, create it.
