Moving within the Flux
Isn't this thing such a roller coaster? Often I forget this concept and it quickly bites me in the ass. Sometimes, I'm invincible. Confident in my stride and my path and my goals, feeling that everything is falling into place as it should, as the universe intended. But then a curveball comes in and throws off my mojo. The little castle I'd built up in my mind, brick by brick, gets hit with a wrecking ball I neglected to notice dangling outside the west wing. It all changes in an instant. Suddenly the trajectory of life changes. Though, it's still my life. I'll spend a few minutes kicking the bricks out of anger and frustration for a bit but I already know this won't get me anywhere. There's never a reason to wallow in anger and frustration. All it can do is perpetuate the situation.
I still kicked all the bricks around for a while and then stopped and sat on a rock, looking at the mess I'd made. A disheveled landscape of my path laid before me in ruins. I realized in reflection that this was once again an instance of the world teaching me something. The guru of mother nature will strike when you least expect it and you have no choice but to accept your fate. I twiddled my thumbs and sent my thoughts into the wind..
I began to listen to the guru. This is not the end of anything, it's merely a shift in what I thought was the path. Rebuild and restructure and reclaim that same confidence and motivation. This is merely an obstacle. A hurdle. A climb. A problem. I am the solution. Better yet; I define the solution. There is no problem. The key here is to face these obstacles head on, with an open mind, and listen to what they can teach you. About the nature of life and the nature of who you are. We grow from experiences of derailment.
Once again I witness the flux of this great world.
I feel it in my heart. And I howl like a wolf.
