Destination: Unknown?

Do you know what it feels like to be really hungry? Like starving to the point where you’ll eat almost anything, yet at the same time you have an appetite for one thing. Know what I mean?

Well…that’s the way I feel about life and just about everything related to it.

Love, health, wealth, and happiness– pursuing each.

Here’s what I’ve discovered to be really prominent about that.

I don’t need to taste test everything in order to develop an acquired taste for what I want out of life.

Some do, but I don’t.

To me, it seems like people search for validation by having to taste test everything. They’re the ones who say, “I know what I want because I’ve tried x,y, z.” Yet still, after all that testing, most are unaware of their own preference regarding something as intimate and organic as love, for instance.

And, don’t get me wrong. This is just my opinion from what I’ve observed.

To put it in another scenario, think about traveling up north by car. Lets say we’re travelling to New York from Florida. If you KNOW (keyword – know) your destination, is it necessary to stop at every 3rd or 4th exit? Is it?


Now, if you didn’t have a specified destination and had the desire to stop at every 3rd or 4th exit, by all means, do your thing!

But I think a lot of people set themselves up for the okie doke by failing to gauge a sense of awareness as they go throughout life and the natural experiences and circumstances that occur.

Everyday people go out looking for a road map or a gps to map their way throughout their journey. Yet, we have an inner gps. We have a gut instinct, an intuition, a level of discernment that act as a gps.

Here’s the thing, however. Your inner gps needs a destination. It MUST be curtailed and tailored in order to become useful. I mean, what’s the use of a gps if you haven’t set a destination?

Just because it’s the journey and not the destination that counts, does not mean you shouldn’t have one.

Think about it.
