Alice and a Fork in the Road

“One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. “Which road do I take?” she asked. “Where do you want to go?” was his response. “I don’t know,” Alice answered. “Then,” said the cat, “it doesn’t matter.”

Take a step, ANY step.  Don’t stagnate for fear of taking the wrong step.  I’d rather go in one direction or the other instead of staying put.  If you come to a fork as Alice does in the above quote, what’s the difference what way you go if you have no clue?

The next time you’re out hiking in the woods and you come to a fork, how many times do you stay at the fork?  If you don’t know which way to go, are you going to sit down in the middle of the path and simply give up, not go in ANY direction at all?  How silly would that be?  If you go in one direction and come to a challenge, you can do one of two things:
–Keep going and persevere through that challenge
–Or you can turn around and return to the fork and go down the other path.

As it is in life.  I know you’ve heard it said here:
Life is about moving forward.

Sometimes, however in order to move forward you have to take a step or two back.  It really makes no difference in the grand scheme of your life whether you turn around every once in awhile.  Your life is entirely mapped out anyway.  I discussed Predestination here before.  I SINCERELY believe there are certain aspects in our lives that simply can NOT be changed.  I’ve written about this before in the entries called:
Your Life Is Like A River
and:
Being Spiritual

If it is true that your specific life plan is already mapped out by the divine then you simply can’t make a mistake when it comes to getting to your life nee, your soul’s goal.  You can certainly change the route and the time it takes to reach your soul’s ambition, but not the goal itself.  Whatever is happening now, wherever you are on your journey, just take comfort in knowing that you are RIGHT where you are supposed to be.  If you come to a fork in the road, a fork in your life, if a decision has to be made and you don’t know which way to go, just take a step, take ANY step; and believe in yourself, believe that the divine has you firmly in its embrace.

There are no mistakes!
There are no wrong paths!

Be courageous and know that the Divine won’t let you down.
The Divine loves you and that love for you will keep you safe and will keep you moving forward even if you have to take a step or two backward.  Keep the quote:
“One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. “Which road do I take?” she asked. “Where do you want to go?” was his response. “I don’t know,” Alice answered. “Then,” said the cat, “it doesn’t matter.”
above in mind and take it to heart.

You are right on track.  You are right where you’re supposed to be.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you all.

  1. A very positive post. Life is all about movement, and to stay in one place, is to become stagnante, especially in the spiritual sense. My interpretation of things is we fulfill our potentials to the fullest when we persist in seeking, exploring, probing, discovering. We need to step past our comfort zones and sometimes that means taking the fork in the road that we find intriguing, even if a little intimidating. We have all we need within us to rise to the occasion and jump over the hurdles that might come our way. I do think there are choices that we can take that will set us back from discovering what we are meant to, and even wound us, so it’s essential to listen to that gentle whisper that the Divine continually gives us in the center of our hearts. When we tap into the Divine’s voice and let that voice usher us onward, there certainly is no wrong choice and wonders await us.

  2. Yes, I agree Chris, that there are no mistakes, and no wrong paths. I know that when I tune-in to my Inner Being, and my emotional guidance, I am right on track…and that track (or path) continues to expand and grow, along with me.

    Thanks for a wonderful post!
