If the path be beautiful

“If the path be beautiful, let us not ask where it leads.” – Anatole France

Inspired by the fact that the sun’s reflection looks like a solid path stretching across the water, today’s IQ is about two things for me:

1) Acceptance that the journey, the process, is the most important thing. We can’t force our destination to arrive before we’ve completed the journey. So we must remain aware, and accept, that the journey – the path – is what we are experiencing right now, and hence is where we need to be, both physically and mentally. Which leads me to the second point:

2) Being present in the moment, as a key to appreciating the beauty that is always surrounding us. It truly is. From a place of absolute presence, it is possible to discern beauty in the most minute and mundane of moments.

What path are you on? Are you enjoying the view? Is the journey fun? Are you appreciating the inherent beauty as you walk/stroll/run/dive/meander through the path of your life?

Food for thought.

With love,
