Whenever I move my car out of the parking spot, I have to put my car in reverse gear, back out, and then put it in drive to move forward. I need to go backwards to move forward, to go from point A to point B. It is not a straight path, it’s a looping curve backwards and then forwards.
And when I feel like my life is not going smoothly, or I am not progressing forward towards my goals and am stuck, I remember - This Is Reverse Gear!
You are not actually moving backwards. The path is nonlinear - winding - a natural part of the way things are to unfold. We don’t usually get to the mountain top on a straight up path; we take winding paths around bends, sometimes dipping down to go around and up, all with a forward momentum, a dance along this exciting and beautiful journey.
