Why Look Down the Road When You Are Standing On It

331So many precious moments and opportunities are lost because we choose to look down the road instead of living on it.

The road ahead is the road you pave through personal creation.  You are the power in and of the road.  You can make it anyway you so choose. How you feel NOW will either create a happy road or an unhappy road.  Some may be smooth, some may be winding and some rough. Any of which will deliver life’s most amazing and miraculous experiences, so long as you look at them with a positive light.

To make the road smooth, you have to stop looking down it and start looking at it; where you are right now.  Find appreciation in and acceptance of the road you are on and then begin to visualize the road ahead – visualize it as how YOU want it to be.  Don’t visualize it based on everyone else’s needs, just your own.

334When you go against what is, you go against the road. You may as well stand in on-coming traffic, because that is what life will feel like.

There is nothing wrong with where you are, but to get to where you want to be you have to start from where you are.  When your focus is on what’s down the road, you miss everything that is on the road right NOW.  It is the right now that will take you to where you want to be.  You have to enjoy where you are now in order to make your trip a happy one.  What you put out, you get back, so if you are paving your road with negativity, unhappiness, worry, stress or dis-ease, that is exactly what you are going to get back.

333There is no need to worry about the future because the future does not exist.  Only the present moment exists and that is where all the power is.

You do not need to jump from here to there in one fell swoop. The most exciting part of any journey is in the creation of it. And the greatest part of creation is that nothing is carved in stone.  If you get 50 miles down the road and decide the direction you are heading is not really want you want, all you have to do is turn in another direction.

70Allow the road to take you to where you want to be.  Be one with the road and accept it for what it is.  There will be times when it is not as smooth as we would like it to be, but that is okay.  If it weren’t for a few bumps here and there, how would we know what it is we really want?  The road offers so many choices and gifts along the way but not all of them are seen, noticed or embraced because we spend too much time looking back at or down the road.

There is nothing you need to do but to feel good NOW.  The road will do all the work for you. You just have to trust where it is going to take you.
