Riddle Me This

"We plan our lives according to a dream that came to us in our childhood, & we find that life alters our plans. & yet, at the end, from a rare height, we also see that our dream was our fate. It's just that providence had other ideas as to how we would get there. Destiny plans a different route, or turns the dream around as if it were a riddle, and fulfills the dream in ways we couldn't have expected." -Ben Okri

Isn't that lovely? I feel it in my own life. Life does indeed have a way of changing our path & for a time it may seem like we've been pushed on a completely different road. Only to find later, from that clarifying & rare height, that we just needed to take another route to our dreams. I like how that quote puts life, as a riddle. We're constantly trying to figure it out, & the answers often come as things we never expect. The answer seems so difficult and confusing and obscure as we go. Sometimes we might even give up trying to figure it out. & we sometimes have to give it time to work itself out in our minds. But once we have enough experience to see the answer, it's perfectly clear. Just like a riddle.
