I’ve tried many beaten paths and could recommend one or two. Still, the real adventure and growth come from walking off the path.
Flowers don’t grow well on beaten paths; neither do mysteries and heart-felt dreams.
The real secret for deep growth is to walk off the path into the night . . .
Then, there is The Path.
“Verily, the wayfarer who journeyeth unto God, unto the Crimson Pillar in the snow-white path, will never reach unto his heavenly goal unless he abandoneth all that men possess: ‘And if he feareth not God, God will make him to fear all things; whereas all things fear him who feareth God.'”
Bahá’u’lláh, The Four Valleys, p. 58
Seems we’re given great Gifts when we submit to God . . .
