We are on the same journey. We are on different paths. We will deal with obstacles. We are on a Quest. To where? How does the journey begin and
where does it end? How do we choose the path?
These paths and the obstacles that are on them, where do they come from? Are we pre-destined to be on the path by some unknowing, unsee-able force?
Does that same force create the obstacles?
Could it be that we are both controlled and manipulated and at the same time allowed to deviate from that destiny? Many things we are forced to deal
with are out of our control, are they not? Does the frustration and lack of control alter our path? Does anger become the obstacle?
Are the emotions within us creating the path and the obstacles? What is the ultimate destination and where will this Quest lead us? Is that an
obstacle of its own making? I want to be perfect and all that entails.
Perfection. Is that the objection? What is perfection? Isn't that defined through the subjection of the beholder? I have my idealistic view of
perfection and yet how can I be sure that it is accurate?
It may be a falsely held rendition based on an environmental evolution, stepped on by religion and monetary considerations, manipulated by a
commercialized society, forced to be in a world of chaos.
The idea of a perfect world and a perfect human is wrought with inconsistencies and hypocrisy, which in turn becomes the level of obstacles for our
souls own desire for perfection. We are forced to overcome the choices of others in order to achieve this Quest for perfection.
Acceptance and unconditional love are equally hard to achieve for the inevitable will surely create an obstacle that is not overcome-able. The
ability we seek to gain acceptance is the very reason why we are not capable of unconditional love. When acceptance is not forthcoming from another
human, then that human will not receive our hard fought unconditional love and support.
This in turn will create an insurmountable obstacle for the soul to overcome in the Quest for perfection and a return to that ultimate destination.
In my estimation, the only way to reach that destination is to have unconditional love for self first. Acceptance of self first.
You will never be able to give to another that which you cannot give yourself first.
So in conclusion, I have come to the understanding that I must first accept the very fact that no matter what my path is and no matter what the
obstacles may be, my Quest for perfection will be met with a severe case of imperfections and that I must love myself unconditionally to meet that
I must allow for my soul to accept the path will be a very long one and that those that become obstacles must be overcome with unconditional love,
which is in itself the greatest obstacle of all!
