“The road less traveled,” what exactly does that mean? It isn’t literally a road, but a direction in which one has chosen to travel. It’s a choice. It’s a notion about how one chooses to live his/her life. Thousands of smaller choices support the main choice or purpose of a person’s life. Many of the options are made in a subconscious level, never-the-less the choices are internal; each option taking the soul farther along its chosen path or diverting into some brand new adventure or unscheduled stopover on the way.
It is these extended experiences that permit you to recognize that you’re on course or not, since you evaluate your life from a stage of relationship. For example if you realize that you have run of the road into the ditch, you also notice that you aren’t on the road moving in your intended direction.
You may be headed to the East coast from the West, and how long it takes you is determined largely by how many times you have turned north or south. The road less travelled is more or less composed of those side trips. The journey from East to West never ends and you finally come across the starting point.
Your trip can continue as much as a single heartbeat or extended over several lifetimes. With each incarnation, memories of you experiences are added to the collective memory. Previous choices need not be re-experienced in any other life in order to achieve enlightenment. It is the natural order of all that is to move forward. The knowledge doesn’t die with the individual but becomes common knowledge in the collective. Our choices become evident in our lifetime during the physical things that we bring and bring into our lives. These physical objects tell the story of our current incarnation.
We create the road less travelled through choice. From accessing the knowledge that is ours through previous lifetimes, we can enrich our lives in this period of time. The road less travelled is yours uniquely. Nobody else can experience it in the same manner; your life can never be duplicated, just copied. Your life makes for great copy, with all of its side trips and tourist traps that have been selected in a lifetime. Others will want to follow and have the very same experiences. None will have the ability to achieve what you have done.
The road less travelled is the life’s experiences, it’s what you’re doing here, it isn’t a place you go to, it’s what you’re creating. The journey is in fact a road that nobody else can travel. Don’t hunt, the road less travelled, make it.
