Beaten Paths

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 . . .
