When The Road Narrows

What would you do in this situation? Of course it would depend on the circumstances; what lane you were in; which direction you were heading; what other vehicles were on the road at the same time, etc, etc.

There is a clue in the lower right hand corner...a small sign that reads "DO NOT PASS."

This photo is and optical illusion. Of course this road does not narrow as the picture suggests but, this is a great visual aid to describe something that happens every day of our lives.

It doesn't matter what the circumstances of life are. If we are to be successful, no matter how we define that term, we must align our thoughts, actions, and behaviors with Universal Laws that cannot be broken regardless of the conditions.

Whether there is a sign to warn us of impending trouble or not we have to stay in our lane or we run the risk of a deadly consequence. The same is true of life's choices. we cannot violate the universal law of gravity and expect not fall or drop down. We cannot expect to receive that which we have not sown. It just doesn't work that way.

Just as in this instance above you may get away with passing in a no passing zone, but this is especially dangerous when the road narrows. In this case it is wise to obey the law and when you are facing life situations, especially those which may not necessarily be what they seem, it is critical to once again understand that may also be severe consequences to your thoughts, behaviors, and actions.

So whether there is a warning sign or not, keep in mind the universal laws that apply to all of life's situations. Don't know what those universal laws might be? A little be of research and a passion and curiosity and they will be revealed.

Until the next mountain to cross is before us...peace be with you
