‘One Step Forward, Please!’

I had some currents of revelation recently on the topic of discernment.

I was ‘standing up to the plate’ at a urinal in the toilets of the Shanghai airport. I looked above, saw this sign (pictured) and dutifully, stepped forward.

While meditating on this sign, some truth trickled into my mind and then came as a pleasing rush: usually in discerning the way and making decisions about life, the most we are called to do is to take the next step. To take the step that is right before us. The step in front of our nose.

We are not always given a one or a five year plan of the way ahead.

So ‘One Step Forward, Please!’ might be the message that is flowing to you today.
