Once you are in a situation, you go along with the unique patterns of it, its particular textures and so on. Relating to each situation as it is, as unique, is a path. This approach actually provides a much more definite sense of direction than having a map or blueprint to follow. It is a real direction. Pain will be real pain, and pleasure will be real pleasure. Confusion will be real confusion. Every situation will be a true situation, a precise one. Looking back, we find that all the situations in which we have had a sense of making a journey were situations of living constantly in the present moment. There was no sense of predestination involved at all. The present situation is the destination as well as the path.
