“And so it is, that both the devil and the angelic Spirit present us with objects of desire to awaken our power of choise.”
You are in the middle of nowhere with your best friend. You have no idea where you are and suddenly you find yourself at a fork in the road. Which way to go ? You both look at each other, lifting your shoulders up. No one knows. Both of you are tired and need a quiet place to rest. Then your friend says : “the decision is yours…I’m too tired to make a good one, whatever you do, I trust you completely. Left are right ? Tell me !”
As you are talking, cars are passing by, you and your friend notice that all cars take the way to the right.
“Give me five minutes” you tell your friend, while you leave the car and you walk towards the nearest tree.
Your friend thinks “Ahhh…that should make it easy for us, this is surely a sign from God….as so many cars took the right side, it must lead us to something good. And that left road probably leads to an old secondary road, leading to one of these old dusty towns.”
…..Without uttering a word you hop back into your car and you turn the car to the left. You stay silent, but It doesn’t take long before your friend asks you : “Didn’t you see all these cars passing by and heading to the right ?”
“Yes I did see them.”
“I really thought you were going to choose the road to the right.”
“Because the other cars did ? What if those people were like us ? Not having a clue which way to take and now blindly following each other ? What makes you discern whether something is a blessing in disguise or a poisoned present ?”
“Well how did you choose between left and right, wright or wrong, earlier ?” My friend asked.
“While I was out of my car at that cross point, I silenced myself for 5 minutes so I could relax and center myself. I breathed deeply and I knew that when I opened my eyes, everything would be right.”
“But what made you turn to the left, “my friend now asked impatiently ! “I believed those cars were an answer to your prayer !”
I smiled : “Nature answered us with a beautiful flock of ducks passing in the sky coming from that direction. They were loudly quacking and I clearly heard their wings clapping in the wind as they flew over us, the breeze following them ended in the tree next to me. I felt a shiver running over my shoulder.”
“That‘s a crazy story” my friend said. “What do you believe those birds told you ? “ he said.
“They told me they never fly towards danger, but always away from it !”
