The path of least resistance isn’t always obvious until you step foot upon it. Oftentimes we agonize over the choices laid out before us, trying to discern between a rock and a hard place but usually between a rock and a hard place is sliver of light, a chink in the armour of reality that we observe as the boarder or boundary between options instead of an option in its own right. Navigating the narrowest channel is simply a matter of taking the brakes off and allowing Source to carry you toward the next set of options.
Take communications between two parties for example. In difficult situations where there appears to be much at stake and neither side is entirely sure of how the other will react to direct approach; face to face negotiation/reconciliation has proven a logistical improbability, convenience, timezones, the rising expectations versus many misunderstandings making phone calls potentially explosive interactions, what does it leave? A narrow channel of creative expression written in the name of universal wisdom (Principle 4: I AM Truth) in hope that the target audience may be paying attention? It might not be a guaranteed option but it is certainly the path of least resistance until such time that another option or opportunity presents itself.
Sometimes that channel becomes so tight though, cutting off parts of the previously available slipstream, that the path of least resistance begins to change direction. In the communication scenario, supposing that the information, however limited it may previously have been, becomes obscured or hidden from view? Less universal and accessible? Communication may slow to a drip or completely unless the embargo is somehow lifted or another way around the obstacles is found.
Perhaps in this case the path of least resistance is to let go completely and accept that all good things come to an end. Source has a plan and when obstacles keep showing up to block your progress maybe it isn’t just another test, maybe it’s a celestial stop sign, like an oracle or omen you cannot read, or a map that doesn’t show north.
For my own journey, currently filled with new learning and potential in many areas, the path of least resistance in others has begun to narrow significantly. Though the slipstream still exists and a miracle is still possible, if the messages cannot get through the magic stops.
I’m optimistic that God will show me a new path, a wider path with increased incoming flow (Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted)… whether that flow will come from the same origin or a new source of inspiration I don’t know, but I’m open to surfing the channel that has least resistance… for too long I’ve been trying to fight against a current that’s been flowing in opposition to my chosen destination but I cannot fight no current at all.
A rock, a hard place, the path of least resistance… what’s your chosen path this weekend?
More later… x
