The Fool’s Journey #1: Note to a Traveler

You will come to a resting point in the road you travel and find that a multitude of possible pathways are available in all directions, but the one you travelled to arrive where you are will no longer exist. This will be true at any point in your journey when you stop to pay the slightest attention to where you are and where you have been. In fact every time the you that is attending will be transformed by the act of observation. The observer takes over for the observed and is the same individual and contains all previous iterations as well as pieces of future observers.

If you hold this idea as you continue and that it is true for all other travelers as well, your path may be one that leads toward enlightenment, but even this will not save you.
