Life is akin to a bus ride.
We board the bus and we meet people along our way. Some are strangers, some friends and some strangers yet to be friends. Along our journey we have stops and people own us on our journey. At times some of these people make their presence felt, leave an impact through their presence and beauty on us fellow passengers while on other occasions they remain indifferent.
But then it is important for some people to make an exit, to get off the bus and walk the paths they were destined to take. If people always got on the bus and never left either for better or worse, then we would feel suffocated and confused. The purpose of the journey would lose its essence altogether and would neither be worthwhile nor smooth.
The most important reason for going from one place to another is to see what’s in between, and we should take great pleasure in doing just that.
Peace and Love, Jim
