The previous post made me think. Is life a little like a bus? We are put on the side of the road and told that we must catch the bus. “Don’t miss the bus!”
Some people take the first bus that comes along and then passively sit looking at the scenery. They love the colour, the hills, the city – the world as it flashes past them and they sit in the safety of the bus. They are simply along for the ride.
Others stand and wait for the right bus – the one that goes to the right destination. But once they are on they too passively sit and watch the scenery. They feel some satisfaction in the believe that they are going to the right place. “The bus will get me there”, they say, “I trust in the bus”.
And a very small group of people simply refuse to take the bus. They walk!
