Many are stubborn in pursuit of the path they have chosen, few in pursuit of the goal.
—Friedrich Nietzsche (Public domain)
…Every one of us gets up each day and takes a set course of actions until nightfall. We do it, more often than not, through simple rote. We have forged a channel in the ground which has become our life, and the more we repeat that path, day in and day out, the deeper the channel becomes, and the more difficult it will be to escape.
That is fine, as long as the trench we have formed leads us to where we want to go! We were put here with Divine Purpose. No matter what our age or abilities, we should be in pursuit of a grand goal, and we need to keep the vision of that goal burning bright within our minds.
By keeping our thoughts disciplined and focused on the achievement of what we pursue, it becomes quite clear whether or not we are on the right path. If we are, let’s proceed with energy and passion. If we are not, let’s undertake the task of digging ourselves out and charting a new course.
