I would imagine we have all been at “crossroads” in our life at one time or another along our journey. Making important life choices can be daunting and takes us out of our “comfort zone”. We have to trust our intuition and have faith that we are making the right decision.
It can be as literal as taking a walk and trusting your gut as to going forward, turning back, or taking a right or left turn. Usually on a walk we have a destination in mind, but sometimes it is fun to explore and discover new places, offering ourselves a chance for serendipity to occur.
When we travel to a new neighborhood, new city, new country, nowadays we rely on our cell phone GPS system to find our way. We miss out on making a “wrong turn” that could change our entire plan for the day or even our life.
Sometimes it is good to turn off the GPS mapping and trust our instincts, and discover destinations we would not have had on our electronic map. Opening ourselves up to serendipitous happenings is surely a Zenful way to let go and trust the Universe to show us the way.
We need to follow and listen to our inner guidance “GPS – Gratitude, Purpose, Soul” system! Our Zen Intuition will always lead us along the divine path, but we need to listen and have faith that we are in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing.
One of my favorite quotes by Helen Keller is: “Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing at all.” She surely had to trust her instincts to find her way in life.
I also love this quote: “A smile of encouragement at the right moment may act like sunlight on a closed up flower; it may be the turning point for a struggling life.”
