The ability to discern the twists and turns, pitfalls and vistas that we come across on the journey to a particular destination, and make necessary course corrections to keep us on target.
Often this is something we try to do by ourselves, for ourselves, in spite of ourselves.
And often our data, our maps and compass and directional sense and ability to resist emotional turnings to the left and right stopping and starting and laying down at the wrong time or traveling at the wrong time-you get the picture, these faculties are only slightly functional, at best.
But the best navigation is from far above, or far outside the weeds and woods of the traveler. The proverbial birds eye view. Which is impossible to gain on your own if you are the woods walker. Yes, you can gain this ability after seasons of practice, but most of us have resigned ourselves to wandering, and redefine our destination as ‘I am a wanderer.’
Consider a real destination. And a real navigator. Someone other than yourself, with lots of experience, and most importantly, someone you can trust.
