Driving in the dark

I believe this is the perfect analogy to help understand and deal with the frustration of  attempting to achieve your goals.

Let’s use spirituality as the example and let’s assume you are searching for faith. A difficult search indeed because it’s such a subjective goal. 

Your search is like driving in the dark because you can only see as far ahead as the headlights will light up the road. However, as you continue your search…..or keep driving…..the distance the lights shine keeps repeating itself and eventually you reach your destination. You will find what you are looking for, a hundred yards at a time, even though you didn’t know where it was or you didn’t know what it looked like because you had never been there before.

So remember, to get where you want to go in life, it happens in segments of time and space. As you continue on your road you will see the curves and obstacles as they appear, steer around them, and keep going. Soon you will find what you are looking for, even though at one point the end wasn’t in sight. 

Don’t be afraid to start something because you don’t know where you are going. Know that you just have to deal with segments of your journey one at a time. Eventually great distances will be behind you.
