She sat on the ground, folding her legs & placing her palms upon her knees. She stared into the space in front of her & focused on her breathing. As she sat there for nearly an hour, her consciousness connected with the cosmic intelligence.
Her energy opened up to the cosmos: "I am too weird. I can't handle this anymore. I just want to fit in."
The cosmos asked her consciousness: "Why?"
Her energy responded: "Because I am not strong enough to be this weird. I am tired of standing out & being judged & feeling uncomfortable, all the time. I am afraid of what the future holds if I have to be this unconventional."
The cosmos responded: "End the resistance. Choose the path. Walk the path. The path itself will take care of you."
Suddenly, her phone alarm went off: the hour was up & she broke her meditative trance. The words though stayed with her. And she wondered what they meant.
A few hours later, as she was cooking, she finally understood.
When you walk the path that calls out to you, the path of your Dharma, the path itself will take care of you.
When you resist the path of your Dharma, you risk your soul & you miss your consciousness goal & you forsake your energy's role.
"It's your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you" - Rumi
