The Road That Leads to Nowhere - The Road That Leads to You

Aug 29, 2008
In the song "Pilgrim" Enya beautifully sings about a philosophy of being--a metaphysical way to joyously live your life. The second verse reveals timeless wisdom.

"One way leads to diamonds, one way leads to gold,
another leads you only to everything your told.
In your heart you wonder which of these is true;
The road that leads to nowhere, the road that leads to you."

One Way Leads to Diamonds - One Way Leads to Gold

Roads that lead to either diamonds or gold are no doubt fruitful paths to embark upon. Tragically most people never discover either path. Instead they stumble down roads of pain and suffering--never learning from the trials and tribulations everyday life places on their path. Others aimlessly drift down the road of mediocrity--leading lives of quiet desperation.

Often these roads tempt people with immediate gratification. They offer plenty of short-term "thrills" such as drugs, excessive alcohol consumption, jumping from bed to bed in search of sexual pleasure, gluttony, over-indulgence in television, etc. Eventually a person's senses become dulled and the road they so enthusiastically embraced suddenly becomes one of pain and suffering (it's 'funny" how these are the only feelings that are enhanced) or at best a road of boredom--boredom that is sometimes interrupted with a few mild pleasures.

Fortunately there are roads that are littered with diamonds--paths that actually lead you to that illusive pot-of- gold.

Another Leads You Only to Everything You're Told

From the time we're born to the day we finally enter eternity--outside influences attempt to mold us into "society boy or society girl." Our parents, friends, lovers, civic leaders, religious figures, the news media, etc. influence how we think and feel. Of course, some of the influences in our lives have good intentions and others are helpful. However many are purposively attempting to brainwash us with their propaganda so they can gain control over our lives. Very few can escape the clutches of these predators. They end up living their lives on the road of everything they've been told.

The beginning of personal enlightenment means that you discover that you are wandering down a path you didn't consciously choose. You become aware of your surroundings. You realize that you may have unconsciously chosen this path--and you begin to wonder if a different road is available for your journey.

In Your Heart You Wonder Which of These is True

You look around at your surroundings. You think "How did all of this come about?" Why am I manifesting these things instead of my dreams, desires and fantasies? Is this the life I want to live--or is there a happier, more fulfilling way to spend my days?

During your meditations you realize that this must be what you have accepted all of your life. You can't remember when you believed differently. After all "others" claim that this is the "moral or right" way to live. You think "I have never questioned whether this is true or not." In the deepest recesses of my conscious mind I have fantasized about events and happenings I longed to experience--however if I revealed these to others they would accuse me of being selfish and self-centered. Is it possible that they are wrong? Could I possibly live for my own sake--walk a path I choose--do it my way?

The Road that Leads to Nowhere - The Road that Leads to You

When I first heard the song "Pilgrim" I thought that this verse meant that you walk down the road that leads to nowhere--frustration and lack of love--or you walk down the road to your soulmate--the path of love and sexual ecstasy. How sublime and romantic! It wasn't until listening to the song in a high state of awareness that I realized that "the road that leads to you" was the path to self-enlightenment--layered with gold, filled with diamonds. It is the discovery of the Holy Grail. I listened to the song at least four times in a row. Tears of joy spilled from my eyes--eyes that were actually "seeing." I was euphoric for hours. The whole song is a symphony of a wondrous journey--a journey to who you really are.

So you do have a choice. You can stumble down the road that leads to nowhere--or you can joyfully glide down the road that leads to you.
