Sometimes in life, we are given difficult choices, and when not choosing is not an option, what can we do?
It is like standing in front of a destination board in a train station. The colorful lines got mixed up and we are left with this mixture of criss-crossing routes that intersect one another randomly, creating unexpected shapes, colors and random uncertainties.
Something about those lines reminded me of life. We are constantly faced with choices, and each choice will take us to intersect with different people, in different places, at an unexpected time of the day. We cannot tell who are waiting at the intersection unless we make the choice. Knowingly, or blindly..
The future is never ours to tell.
The present is never ours to control.
And the past is never ours to change.
At one point in time, all we can do is to let go of any expectation. Take a risk, choose a line, and let the train takes you to no-where. Because during the journey to no-where, at the point of no-expectation, we will have the silent time to be present and to reach deep into our heart.
Take a risk. No-where may turns out to be a beautiful place after all.
