It's amazing how certain events can put the entire world in perspective. Sometimes it's the smallest of things.
What matters most is what we do with our new found perspective.
Fear and the unknown most often send people on a spiritual journey. I've taken many such trips. Each time I have found myself in the same place at the end of said trip.
Which leads me to two conclusions.
One: I have already found what I've been looking for and return to it when in doubt.
Two: I am completely lost and traveling in circles.
Either way, I know that I'm enjoying the ride.
There are many things that we will never have control over, no matter what we do. It's frightening.
What helps me is being able to let go of that fear. Like riding roller coasters. Hands in the air. Enjoy the ride, because it's over before you know it.
