Imagine you are in a dark room, I mean so dark you cannot see anything anywhere (or even your very limbs), but you are standing on solid ground. In your mind/heart/spirit you know there is somewhere you need to be going, there is a path you are meant to be following. But you can’t see the path, and you are frustrated, and scared, and you have absolutely no clue of what to expect, orwhether if you take your first place you will walk right into some bottomless abyss and fall forever and ever, and in the first place, IN WHICH DIRECTION SHOULD YOU TAKE THE FIRST STEP??? And in any case do you even know which direction is which??? But you finally muster up the courage to take the first step, I mean, what the heck, it’s not like you have a choice here is it??? (Ok, maybe you have the choice to sit right where you are and moan for yourself or hope some light will come at some time, or someone will walk in with a torch and tell you, ‘Here is a light bro, that’s the way you should walk!!!’) But no, you have to walk (you might even be getting a little hungry now, could there be a fast food joint somewhere?). So, very reluctantly and very cautiously, you lift your leg, and… the most interesting thing happens…there is light coming out from under your boot, like there is a light embedded in there! And that’s when inside you, you hear a voice, ‘Be strong, walk on!!!’ and right infront of you, there is a path.
Well, that could possibly have been the end of that story, except for the simple fact that you must keep walking, I mean, a single step is just that, a step, you didnt walk yet,, to do that you
need to take another step, i mean, even the Chinese say that a long journey begins with a single step, you get it, it only began, you aint trvelled yet, you just began travelling!!! (Back to our little adventure…) You put your first foot foreward and guess what? It’s all dark, all over again. So what to do, what to do, what to do? You have absolutely no guarantee whatsoeverthat there is a similar light under the boot of your other leg, what if you should lift it to walk on and you trip over something??? Again, ‘walk on’, and you take a chance, and true, there is a light right under your other boot. And slowly, but surely, you take simple step, after simple step… and somewhere along the journey you hear the voice you were looking for all along… ‘THIS IS THE WAY, CONTINUE WALKING IN IT’
