"You must find a crack in your life to get a taste of the possibility of something new. It could be anything, but you have to be actively open to your chance, to your opportunity for the real."
How many of us are stuck with what is known and comfortable in our lives? We thinks we know all there is to know about something. We reached the pinnacle of our effort. Or so we think. We grow smugged with ourselves. Consequently we lose our way and while roaming the path and perhaps moving a lot we get nowhere. Nowhere valuable I mean.
"It doesn’t matter what your “way” is—arranging flowers, meditating, singing in a choir, building chairs, visiting sick patients, deflecting punches. The purpose has to be to transform yourself; not to change others."
What is the purpose of what we do? Why, not only what is important. It's so sad that after years of climbing the ladder we look at the other side of our effort and find that it was resting on the wrong effort. And yet, there's hope. We can climb back down. Step down from what we thought was the clear path and start in a new direction. A direction that includes not only the where I want to go but the why I want to get there.
So, lets find the crack in us. Let it happen. It will come from the most unexpected places but it will come. It will show us the truth of our path and then we'll be facing a choice.
