The journey is like a marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it.   John Steinbeck

Perhaps if we take our Life’s Journey in stride, while focusing on the road and not the potholes, we may find what we were looking for, even if we didn’t know we were looking for it.  After all, That’s Life, an amazing trip if you stay grounded enough to enjoy it.

Now don’t get me wrong, I do realize a joyful end is not in the cards for everyone.  It is what it is.

We all have our own set of uniqueness and our own set of challenges and they are vastly different from our peers.  That’s what sets us apart; like fingerprints, but there is an exception; If we are all on a Spiritual Journey together, then we will all have the same destination, although with different results.

A Spiritual Journey is to uncover our inner-self.  You know, our Heart, where Jesus lives, but for some, the Devil.

We all have had our moments, sometimes they happen when we are deep in despair, bringing out some Ole defeated statements like I’ll take what I can get.

To get out of or stay out of any situation that calls for us to settle (I’ll take whatever), is to humble ourselves.  Humility is the number one emotion to stop us from falling into the traps of self-indulging behavior and arrogance.  Those things don’t travel well on any journey.

At other times it seems as if nothing can go wrong and we are on Top of The World.   We should all thank God for just a few moments of peace in this drama-filled New Norm.

The purpose of most Journeys is to take us to a place of self-awareness, while teaching us to respect each new awareness as a gift, especially after a few real life drama lessons that may drop us to our knees along the way.  It’s A Hard Knock Life, even when we are on top.

Sometimes we have to look beyond the textbooks, zip codes, and self-imposed boundaries in order to follow our own UN-trodden paths.  I didn’t say to discard all your tools, especially the educational ones and run out into the vastness pretending to be some great explorer, that would be foolish.  I mean, do not stand in the corner in the dark; get out there and see what God has planned for you.

I think what you will find is there are no two journeys are alike, but they have some similarities, such as; death, sorrow, failure, loneliness, suffering, discouragement, as well as joy.  There has to be joy; for no evil can resist Grace indefinitely.

Journeys are also about experiencing different cultures, gaining the courage to make important decisions with the ability to recognize what will and will not work through trial, error, and Faith.  Some journeys are so dangerous they teach us how to overcome fear, then store those lessons learned for future use so we can be prepared for things yet to come, including how to forgive.

Although our priorities change with age, some still manage to maintain bad habits claiming they are just too hard and it’s too late to conquer them, that’s just an excuse, but, if greed is one of those bad habits we claim to not be able to harness, consider this; It would be foolish if not necessary for survivorship to waste time trying to increase our finances for personal use when the end of our journey is near. 

There are other things far too important to ignore.  Perhaps Peace, Family, and Love are among those things

Let’s make it clear; Greed will not accompany any of us to the grave; Death is the one thing we have to do alone.  In other words, we cannot take physical things to Heaven, maybe to Hell, but I would have to look that one up.

Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s and unto God the things that are God’s.   Matthew 22:21

May I suggest that the young and old alike try to make their journeys as simple as possible by not carry too much baggage from the start; Don’t worry, those bags and a few more you didn’t expect is certain to find or catch up with you along the way.  It’s best to Walk by faith, and know the journey never really ends until we are dead to this World.  So while you are still living, keep dreaming and taking it one step at a time for everything to be perfect; your job, house, love, family, and friends.

FYI: Most times if and when we reach the majority of our goals and have satisfied ourselves enough to be content, we start again.  Why is that, some may ask, I say it’s because we will always need a Purpose in Life and Jesus Christ, others just want more and can’t tell others why.  Satan can.

A word to the wise concerning Bad Journeys is to remember them, not re-live them like it’s Groundhog Day.

It’s Something To Think About!
