Having been born on the southern shore of a Great Lake (Erie) and aboard ships in the Navy, I’m clearly aware of the supreme challenge of steering when the ship is dead in the water.
Some sail must be hoisted (spiritual acceptance) or the engine must turn (will power) to go this way or that.
Maps are good for life-navigation, too ( I like the spiritual ones, myself ).
So, your sails are hoisted and ya gotta map…
Where ya goin’ ?
It’s been said, “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there…”
Gotta make those choices and take responsibility for wherever you end up on life’s ocean.
“Therefore, mere knowledge is not sufficient for complete human attainment. The teachings of the Holy Books need a heavenly power and divine potency to carry them out….volition is necessary…”
