Path - Jina Wallwork
Every path involves a sacrifice. Time spent on one endeavor will reduce the hours that can be spent on another. It would be pleasurable to travel to every exotic land and experience a million cultures, to climb every mountain and see every sunset. Life is fleeting and we cannot experience every joy of which this universe is capable of providing. If we focus on a desire to experience all things our hearts will become heavy with disappointment. It is gratitude that provides true insight into our own journey. It reminds us of the experiences that we have enjoyed. It allows us to see our own path clearly, without the distorted lens of jealousy. Every path contains beauty, although it is only visible through a feeling of appreciation. A moment of thanks for all that you have, it places your entire journey within a greater context. Time will only allow for a slice of what the world has to offer. Don't spend your time imagining the taste of every distant experience, instead savor and digest every pleasure that is within reach.
