Let us first take a look at the usual way of understanding life as a path. Do you see life as a path? It is a commonly used image in the field of personal development.
This means that we are struggling towards a peak. We overcome difficulties and climb, always forward … good, towards what, exactly what? In the spiritual field can we say that we are towards enlightenment, wisdom, etc.? In the field of personal development we can imagine that we are moving forward, successful, rich…
We are pulling life with promises like a donkey with carrots. We are always aiming for that peak. First we go to kindergarten and then we want elementary school. How wonderful it is when we go to high school. And then go to college. Finally, graduating with good citizens, we start work, have a relationship, a family. Looking as if we are near the end is the pinnacle of life.
What is the peak? The peak turned out to be excessive, or disease. And then – one day the sun sets behind a cloud – and then we die. Just like that.
Now, tell me again – where is the peak? Did I miss it?
The strange thing is that for a long time the peak seems to be in the future. Out of reach. Then, from one point to the next, it seems to be from the past. You suddenly go beyond it. You have been ‘. And you may not completely remember what the peak should have been. You all know you missed it.
Quite disappointed, right? But, stop! Listen, if life is not a path?
If life is a dot?
Yes, I said the dot.
We will remove high heels and feel free. A little wild. More funny. We will relax and relax.
We will enjoy that dot. That dot is life.
Let’s have a conversation: What do you think? How is your life? Is your life a path or a dot?
