Before the advent of the Global Positioning System (GPS), travelers had to rely on maps and street signs to find their destination. Even with the use of the GPS method we still look for signs that verify our course changes, corrections, and exits. Navigational systems continue to improve and we now can plot a course and arrive where we want via the shortest route as measured by distance or the quickest route as measured by time. In addition we can add stops along the way for nourishment, entertainment, or rest.
Even with all this technology, we still find it important to read the signs: closed lanes or roads, construction areas, rest stops, speed changes, exit signs, and street names. On our spiritual journey, we also read the signs and know what each one means: trouble ahead, detour, construction—slow down, exit signs—perhaps it’s time to leave this spiritual path and travel a different route, and of course, street signs that let us know where we are.
We call our spiritual destination Home. Getting there is all about reading the signs and making the necessary course corrections when we get off track. We can get there via the shortest route, the quickest route, or by the scenic route. Why be in a hurry? Relax and enjoy the ride. Eventually, we’ll all find our way Home.
