The Journey

From australia

People are traveling together on a path. Because of the darkness, one veers off the way and becomes lost to the extent that in a short time he realizes that he is in the middle of a forest and he can see neither a path, a house, a person, or the like.

How did this happen? A person does not immediately jump from the middle of a broad path to the depths of a thick forest. Instead, first he veers an inch off the path, and then, another inch, and as time passes, he finds himself in the depths of a thick forest.

From australia

In life, you don't get all the answers at once. First you must absorb and live with one simple truth. Then later you must find another truth - one that may seem to conflict with and negate all you previously learned. Then, from that confusion, emerges a higher truth - the inner light behind all that you learned before.
