However you get your directions, your guidance and your resources to light your path or to simply assist you in arriving safely to your destination, there are at times an influx of signs and indications that pervade your thoughts that will not clearly show you how to get where you may indeed need to go.
“Life is complex. Each one of us must make his own path through life.” ~ M. Scott Peck
There are internal voices and messages from your heart and soul whispering softly and repeatedly that you may need to accept a different viewpoint and most likely take a new direction.
Once you have opened your mind to the endless possibilities and have listened and silently agreed, you little choice other to stay true and run with it, or you can always stay stifled in your restrained and restricted same old same old. I suggest you take the leap of faith for it is fabulous…
No atlas, or map folded neatly only once, nor any GPS satellite giving directional coordinates can show you the exact steps to take or which path to follow. You must begin with a feeling and comfort derived from your faith alone and simply appreciate the many discoveries along the way.
On your new journey you may reconnect with a missing part of you, you may even find your self on this journey, for you are not being guided by any expectation or a burning need to arrive, it truly is all about the journey.
“Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don’t complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don’t bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality. Wake Up and Live!” ~ Bob Marley
I believe the universe is attempting to communicate with us every minute of lives, the question remains if we are in-tune enough with ourselves to be willing to just sit quietly and listen.
There too may come a time when your hand is forced by circumstances or events that push you more towards taking a different look at the path you are now on.
Friends and family can be helpful in finding your way, but what is most important is your willingness to let go of the memories of your past and present ordeals in knowing that you may have ignored or forgotten your hearts desire for far too long.
“The only way out is through.” ~ Robert Frost
I have recently been dealt some new cards that some may think are an unwanted and undeserving smack in the face, however, my attitude and reality today sees my new life choices as a welcoming opportunity to follow a personal path leading to new and even more empowered happiness.
I had reached a plateau in my life where so many simpler, more authentic thoughts and feelings have become important again, and the many indications and influences to start my new journey came as no surprise. I am seeing and feeling and opportunity to move closer to my roots, an impending consciousness if you will to be more involved with nature, to grow something magical and to mingle with wondrous people who desire the very same lifestyle who are all dreamers as well.
“They get up early, because they have so much to do, and they go to bed early, because they have so little to think about. “ ~ Oscar Wilde
You can rest assured that because of who I am that I will become fully involved from the planting, nurturing, pruning, harvesting, crushing, fermenting, bottling and drinking of it all too.
Whether it be with a very large commercial operation or within a small niche vintner of familial cooperation, I have been involved with it all before, yet this time I will living in and amongst the rows and rows of vines and all that is included in the passion for winemaking.
To say that my road there will be rough and strewn with rocks and boulders would add far too much romance to my journey. For I have been to and visited this region of California many times and I have tasted the soil and basked in the sunshine as it beams down upon the grapes. There is simply this difficult little fruit with much promise and wonderful flavors called Pinot Noir that is calling to my heart and soul.
Or there is always my yearning to write in an atmosphere of clean air, uncluttered highways, a near by harbor, great family ties and wonderful friends and then there are the many people who are lovingly involved with agricultural and they have offered their assistance and advice.
It will be a new and refreshing life and though I will travel alone, there will be many invitations and opportunities to visit and partake of the spoils.
