When the future looks vast and uncharted but for a few blips on the radar screen, it can be challenging to will oneself into it. Uneducated guesses can lead to rough terrain and seeming dead ends, yet somehow even they can lead to a blissful outcome. The guiding force in entering into the unknown is usually little more than a hunch in one direction and a nudge in another, and sometimes it can be the explosive force of unexpected change that propels an innocent bystander into the arms of fate. To follow such guidance is necessary in the course of navigating the way of destiny. Better yet if there is some point of entry within a realm of chosen expectation. To say, I am going to enjoy this transformative process as a journey of discovery of joy and peace, and you pay attention to signs and signals, hunches, nudges, and sharp turns in the road, you are much more likely to achieve what you set out about, when all is said and done. What is it that propels you headlong into your future in the manner that leads to mastery of your experience? You call it initiative. It is the entry into the path of conscious initiation. When you choose to enter the unknown territory of What Has Yet To Be through the portal that leads to the path of initiation into your chosen experience — joy, solidarity, peace, etc.—you can be said to be following the initiative. The journey begins with only that. Everything follows.
