Standing at the junction,
I ponder.

No.

It’s worse than that,
I analyze and debate and agonize within myself.

Which path is the better path?
Which path is the right path?
Which way does the holy one desire me to go?

I analyze and debate and agonize within myself.
And sometimes I whine or scream at God.

“Tell me,” I plead.
“Which path is the better path?
Which path is the right path?”
Upon which path will I be successful or happy?

Standing at the junction,
I ponder.

In the agonized pondering,
I miss the truth.

God stands with me at the junction,
God walks with me if I turn left or turn right.

Which way should I go?

The breeze whispers in my ear,
the nearby squirrel chatters at me,
and the beauty of creation sparkles all around me.

Each path is my path.
Upon each trail, I will learn and grow.

Happiness and success are not inherent on any trail,
they are within me and the divine one with whom I travel.
