the mess and slowness of staying on my own path

If I walk along and an obstacle is in my way I have a few choices.

I can stand there and wait for the obstacle to “go away”, or take another route, maybe climb over it, or maybe dismantle it. The path is messy and slow and it’s hard to stay interested in the task of dealing with the obstacle.

We also have the choice of walking away, but it’s really hard to walk away, if the obstacle is ourself.

The Real Work

It may be that when we no longer know what to do
we have come to our real work,

and that when we no longer know which way to go
we have come to our real journey.

The mind that is not baffled is not employed.

The impeded stream is the one that sings. Wendell Berry
