The Right Path

I feel lost in darkening woods. Diming moonlight shines through branches. Many paths lay before me and within them, trails begin without end. My eyes flicker. They are all so beautiful. My gaze turns from one to the next. An array of choices lay before me.

I stare at the first, to my left. I suddenly feel empowered; confident. As if I could accomplish anything. I sense that pride and self-accomplishment stand at the end of this path, yet loneliness is there also.

I gaze at the second; many trails spread from this one, small and big. All of them assorted with specific values paired with emotions. A path of selflessness. Generosity and happiness; education and fulfillment; learning and growth; exploration and fascination; activities and joy. However, loneliness still stands in the distance. His arms welcoming me.

I look at the last, to my right. It is by far the most beautiful. Colors I have never seen; indescribable. They seem to come together and intertwine. I feel overwhelmed by happiness and comfort as if I would not be alone if I were to walk this path.

I am submerged with hesitation; What if I can never turn back? What if forgotten choices offered more? What of my wasted time and efforts? Doubt haunts my decision. I close my eyes; take a deep breath. Conviction guiding my steps, I enter the third path. Not with hope for hope does not promise happiness. I will never know if this path was the best amongst my choices. Yet, I do not regret my decision. I have chosen the third path for whatever may lie ahead, I will not face it alone. If sadness, disappointment or remorse were ever to torment me, I would simply have to stare into its beauty to make them go away. I have choses the third path, because I have already decided that I will make my own trails in these woods. I will not abide by their laws. However, I know that if I am ever lost, I will always find those beautiful colors in the darkness.

Листая материалы в сообществе блогеров WP невольно замечаешь ту самую, доминирующую в реальном и виртуальном мирах проблему и трагедию одиночества. Она очевидна как дважды два, для всех в той или иной мере она является основным драйвером ежедневных поступков.

На то, чтобы избежать одиночества направлено по моим скромным оценкам как минимум две трети нерабочего времени и несомненно, та или иная часть рабочего. В последнее время получаю лайк на свои комментарии и переходы на этот сайт со всех континентов. Замечу, что блоги на всех тех материках практически об одном – о тех или иных, самых разных отношениях в широком или узком кругу. Интернет, блогинг в частности – это и есть ни что иное, как тот самый способ не быть одиноким. И как бы не забалтывали блогеры, политики, публицисты, святые и грешники самих себя, в 99% случаев одиночество – это причина всего доброго и злого в нашем мире.

Вот тот рассказик вверху, он от канадского психолога, несомненно талантливого парня. Дэвид зацепил не пресловутой проблемой одиночества, о которой как о первопричине твержу всем вокруг лет без малого двадцать, а способом решения. Там в тексте что-то общее с моей генетикой и взглядом на жизнь. Поэтому прочёл, перевёл и делюсь переводом с подписчиками.
