Walking the Path

 Apologies for the cross posting but I thought this simple exploration by Stephen Batchelor might be of benefit, particularly to those, like myself at present, who feel somewhat disconnected from others.

" As you walk along a path, you are indebted to every man, woman, child and dog who preceded you. And each time you place a foot on the ground, you maintain the path for those who will follow. In pushing aside a fallen branch, you take responsibility for those who will come later... A path is created by clarifying one's aims and removing what gets in the way of their realisation.
