"Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk." ~ Dalai Lama XIV
"There are things known, and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors." ~ Jim Morrison
I now leave things up to Fate. To whatever direction Fate leads me, I follow.
It was not always this way, though.
In this ocean of life, I once was captain of my own ship. I navigated and directed my course and journey.
But being alone at sea can change a person.
Rough waters and harsh storms can humble a person. Or make them lose faith in themselves. To the point where they no longer feel capable to direct their own destination.
Or, they have learned that this journey through life, no matter how hard we try to go in a particular direction, there are much higher forces and powers that always prevail. And there are always unexpected stops and delays at ports, and there are even encounters with pirates who try to sabotage our way.
We can always try to direct our destination, but the journey to get there may not always be as we plan.
So jump onto my ship, or I'll jump onto yours. We may have no idea where we are going, but that is okay. We can set our sails to wherever we want to go, and we can do our best to stay the course, and the rest we can leave up to the wind to take us where it may, and we can have the stars to guide us through all the dark and stormy nights.
What matters to me is that we travel there, together. With love, faith, loyalty, and God's guidance, we will make it there. I believe it.
