When one’s mind is present, it is possible to sense whether a space is filled with menace or with empty threats.
This awareness comes with practice. Events that lead to outcomes that seem to be gloomy are sometimes mere detours.
A detour has the potential to be a nudge in the direction of one’s destiny.
Should one simply obey the breeze and move towards places chosen by others?
Or does one take the bull by the horns, follow the promptings of one’s heart and accept that some things are controllable, while others are not?
