follow your road

'have you ever wondered where your road will lead you?'

- pauline wilson




i have passed by SLEX more than 10 times this month.

i traversed the highway for different reasons: to escape the city, to perform social obligations, to be with my partner, to rush in aid of a friend.

always. always i find myself back to where i started.

i'm starting to wonder if this pattern is an analogy to my own life's journey.

so i ask the question dear adele asked,

'should i give up
or should i keep on chasing pavements
even if it leads nowhere?'


and i ask my own question: they say each of us have to find his own path. how do you know it is yours if you don't know where you want to go?

before we can know what we really want, we must come to terms with who we really are -- deep down, what we believe is personal is really collective and thus, what we want is really what WE want and then is that my path or OUR path.

"...life is a journey, not a destination..."

All I know is, getting there, whereever that may be could sometimes be the point itself, not the destination.

@lof - i like the idea that one's path is determined by our identity and our shared collective consciousness. kaya lang ang susunod na tanong. 'who am i?' hahaha.

@ beyonce & luis - meron bang journey wihtout a destination. asymptotic ba ang buhay, always approaching but never quite getting there? i google ko.

Luis Batchoy said...

siguro merong hindi na importante pa na marating ang destination.

may processing bang dapat mangyari? :-)

kiel estrella said...

@ luis - pwede naman...

@ g - wala naman. kyebs na sa processing. that's all i do in my personal and professional life. tapos pati ako, i-subject ko pa ba sa processing? (bitterness)

successful revolution is the renewal of a dying collective consciousness and that is started by the individual whose path is paradoxically counter-collective and individual on the one hand, and deeply collective and non-individual on the other.

sabi sa Braveheart - have the courage to follow your heart. so road or no road, I follow my heart. wherever I go, I know my destination is mine (wherever it is mwahaha)

Oh yes, Bito. The road to NZ was the one I took with my family and it certainly has been the right path for us.

So where has your journey been leading you toward, my friend?
