Bikram Day 5 – Journey vs. Destination

Day 5 Complete!

Today I am thinking about this mini journey of a 30 day challenge.  All of my post headers read something like Day X complete!  Look, I’m X% of the way “finished”!!  So Ryan, the elephant-in-the-room question is: what then happens when I am 100% complete?  I become Superman?  I achieve enlightenment and supreme consciousness?  I shake hands with the Dali Lama?

And So The Journey Begins…But Never Ends!

The bitter truth is that nothing happens.  Absolutely nothing!  Well, I lied, that’s not quite so accurate.  The one thing that does happen is you learn acceptance.  Acceptance that there will always be something out in the distance to strive for, something to achieve.  But this achievement is necessarily transient in nature.  Once we accept this transience, we can truly submit ourselves to the journey.  We can take things in stride and not try to change the things that are beyond our power to change.  And only then can we go with the river’s flow and enjoy the journey that is life.

Every Individual has Their Own Unique and Beautiful Journey
