I get an e-mail everyday from tut.com which is written by Mike Dooley who was part of The Secret phenomenon.
They asked for a sign, Darlene, evidence that I stir within their souls, that I conspire tirelessly on their behalf, and that all is exactly as it should be.
Do you think they mean besides simply being alive at all?
Things that make you go, “Hmmmmm…”
I had to read it twice for the message to be absorbed and fully understood. I have been looking for a sign, pleading for a sign, to know whether I was on the right path or not. I have run into walls, slid off of mountains, sat by the side of the road like a beggar looking for change. I would have given anything to hear the English woman trapped in my GPS say “recalculating” because at least then I knew I would have something to follow. Somewhere to go. Destinations are highly underrated.
When I read this passage, I realized that breathing and a heart beat are my signs. As long as there is a breath, there is a path, in fact there are paths, that I can travel. Some may be perfect, lots of shade, easy on the legs, many friendly faces on the way, and a spectacular view. Others may be dark and bleak and lonely. As long as I am alive, I can change the path, go a different direction, make a way where they isn’t one, find new traveling companions, get the right shoes, and head towards paradise.
If you don’t like the direction you are going, change direction. If you are traveling to where you desperately want to go and the path becomes difficult, put one foot in front of the other until it evens out, opens up, and becomes easier. If you slid down the mountain you want to climb, find a better route to climb.
Could it be that easy just because I still have a breath?
