The Fork In the Road of Life

Fork in the road

We always like to walk on a straight road. Whenever the fork comes in our way, we get nervous. It’s  because we cannot decide which turn we have to take  from this fork. We always fear the unknown. But, if we escape from that fork, we cannot move forward in life. And life will be stuck in the same condition. To move forward in life, we have to choose one between the two. We have to take a risk in life.

If we choose the wrong way, we will learn from that. The lessons will help us to choose the right turn from the next fork.  If we take the right turn from the fork, we can trust our intuition. Hence, we can gain from both of the turns. Right helps us to believe in our intuition and the wrong gives us insights.  There is no loss on taking the turn from the fork.  When you come to a fork in life where you have to decide your turn, select one by applying your insights or your intuitions. But take a turn.

The fork is everywhere in our life path.  Each moment, we have to face the fork and choose the turn. Our happiness, our suffering all depends on our choice.  If one wants to be happy and find happiness within himself or herself, (s)he will be happy forever.

If one thinks, suffering is easier than discovering the real happiness and prefers to stay in suffering, (s)he will suffer from his or her misery for the whole path of life.

The fork in life is the test for us. This is the test of our courage. This is also the test of our ability to sustain in the constant struggle of life. So, to move forward in life you have to pass the test.  You have to take a risk and choose your turn from the fork in the way of life.

Very well said! I agree sometimes there tends to be some comfort in the known suffering and it takes courage to take a small step into the unknown …it is a more alive path though …

As you said, forks in the road are chances to gain insight or use intuition. Once one has good intuition, its as if there are no forks anymore. We can consciously feel through the situations and choose the best route every time. It takes a while to get connected with it, but when we do, it is definitely a joyful route.

Which ever Road one chooses is OK, as no decision is wrong! ! (It’s a learning experience ))

Reminded of the Robert Frost poem ‘The Road Not Taken’. Hope you don’t mind me including it. TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveller, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had… Read more »
