Recognizing and accepting this fact replaces fear with the courage to move forward.
All too often, we paralyze ourselves with the fear of making wrong moves. We expect to follow a straight path where we know in advance what will work or will not work.
It doesn't work that way.
Any time we are faced with a decision, it's the universe extending an invitation to take part in a personal and/or spiritual development plan. And many times, instead of taking the path of exploration, we recoil back into our comfort zones because we do not know where it will lead.
But when we do accept the universe's invitation, we commit ourselves to exploration, opening the door to possibilities beyond our dreams.
Decisions are never permanent, final actions, even though they may seem to be. They are dynamic and fluid. They are energy that flows outward, creating the path ahead of us. They invite us to open our minds to inquiry and possibility.
We may embark on one path and end up on a completely different path. Does this mean you made a "bad" decision? Of course not. Look at what you learned from the experience. If anything, you learned what you don't want, and realized what you do want. See it as a stepping stone that has moved you closer to creating exactly what you want.
One thing leads to another in ways we cannot always foresee. Experiencing what we do not want -- in order to determine what we do want -- is sometimes part of our personal development plan.
Remain curious. Remain open. Make modifications along the way to keep moving forward. There are no wrong moves, only lessons to be learned.
When we accept the universe's invitation, we commit to this great adventure called life.
