On the right track but on the wrong train!

Posted by Raunak Mahajan on October 25, 2012

Every human being is on a journey. Our purpose maybe different but we never stop our pursuits. Professional, Personal, Spiritual, Religious etc. etc. Life is a journey for everybody. While certain travels are easier to undertake, spiritual and religious explorations can be quite testing. In majority of the cases, we quit and abandon our journeys before reaching our destination. I truly believe that in the spiritual and philosophical domains, journey is more important than the destination. Hence, it becomes more important to question the circumstances that force us to quit. One of the main contributors is despair at not having seen the light at the end of the tunnel. At this point, I’d like you all to ask yourselves whether you have made your journey a “Matter of Principles”. Are you ignoring other paths that could make the journey more enjoyable for you? Is it time you change your path rather than give up the endeavor? Is it time to get yourself a new map?

Ask yourself, are you on the right track but on the wrong train?

    This is a very timely post/question for me. The illustration is perfect. I fear I’ve been guilty lately of ignoring the map. Being head strong does not a pleasant journey make. 🙂
    I need to make some adjustments but I don’t WANT to. Haha!

      hahaha 🙂 you said it…we don’t want to make the changes we need to….life is so much more comfortable without them.

      as always, thanks for sharing your thoughts.

  2. A very thoughtful post. Will reflect on this one for a while.

      John, thanks!
      this post came to me as a flash and was written in not more than 2 minutes! now that I read it…realize it could do with some more explanation. Then again, I’ve always been guilty of brevity.

    It’s a great post, but shame is that 99% of people will read it, the thought of changing will cross their minds and then they will forget it. Vast majority of people will never truly understand the message behind this text and picture… Cheers!
