The Path of Least Resistance

To me, water can be an excellent example of how we should live our
lives.From the time the raindrops first land on the earth, they begin
their journey to their final destination, the sea,water follows the path
of least resistance.

It has become the most powerful force on earth by
following that simple precept. In most cases, water doesn’t force it’s
way into any environment. It just goes with the flow , silently seeking
it’s path by meandering and winding down life’s path ,thus seeking it’s
destination by following the path of least resistance.

Many find driving to be stressful, however during my life I have driven
several million miles. In most cases I have found drivers also follow
the path of least resistance. As they weave their way through traffic,
drivers are continuously following the path by changing lanes and going
where no other motorists are impeding their travel. Some become
impatient and try to force the situation by aggressive behaviour, but
for the most part, the motorists are just trying to reach their final
destination by following the easiest and most efficient path. They have
become like the water, meandering their way through life, following a
plan, but altering it to compensate for changing conditions.

I have found most successful people also follow the same theory, they all
sooner or later learn to go with the flow and let the universe or God
lead them. They don’t abandon their life dreams or give up when to going
gets tough,  many times none of the paths are easy, but they continue
on by facing their challenges head on , and sooner or later they will
arrive at the summit of their life dreams.

The most important part of the journey is the path  we take, where we learn
how to face roadblocks and obstructions to our destination, by them we
learn many lessons that are beneficial to our well being and evolution
as a human being. It has been often said the journey is more important
than the destination, I feel this is true. The destination is our reward
for not succumbing to all the trials and hardships we encountered along
the way.

Just as water continues on it’s journey to the sea, and motorists reach
their desired domicile so can we reach our ultimate destination , by
having a plan, sticking to it, but altering  it to reflect current and
changing situations and following our instincts in finding the best,
quickest and most beneficial roadway to our fulfillment.
