What is the path, our path, dear Ones?
And is there such a thing as a path?
I was watching Alice in Wonderland yesterday. A movie that talks about the path.
At some point, Bayard the basset hound is trying to prevent Alice from straying.
He says to her, “Departing from the path, you cannot do that.”
To which she responds, “I make the path!”
Later on, as Alice needs to come to terms with her unique mission of fighting Jabberwocky the dragon, the white queen tells her,
“You can’t live your life to please others. The choice must be yours.”
Such a strong, meaningful statement!
So, is there a path, a clearly delineated one?
Rumi’s words came back to me this morning.
“As we start to walk on the way, the way appears.”
