Rights Of Passage

Sometimes, life seems to present us with a clear path in front of us. And sometimes, our destination seems a little less clear. There is no particular entrance way or markings for where we should begin or start or path to take. Some times, what initially seems clear, ends up with twists and turns that we never anticipated- presenting us with challenges that are unforeseen in life. Then when we least expect it, we may see a shelter or a place to rest that catches us totally by surprise. It may be in the shape of a friend, helping hand, way to express ourselves as with pictures, poetry, writing, talking or even within our silence.
There's always beauty to be seen, but what's equally beautiful, is not always what's on the surface. Look down, underneath, peel the layers away and see what's there.
Often times, we're surprised by the view, turn we take, new reality we see, and it was right in front of us- just waiting to be seen. Look beneath the surface and you might just be surprised at what you see.
