Life is like a box of chocolates...

Susan Marek

This morning, a line from the movie, Forrest Gump, popped into my head. "My momma always said, "Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."  "Hmmmm," I thought to myself, "Is that true? Do we really never know what we are going to get?"  Have you ever had a Whitman's Sampler?  You know, one of those big, yellow boxes of chocolates with the box top printed to look like a cross-stitched cloth?  Inside the lid they have a cheat sheet, a diagram of the chocolates and their flavors.  You could overlook or even completely miss this guide and be surprised - in a good or bad way - by the chocolate you choose.  Or you could look at the map of chocolates and choose according to your own preferences.  You wouldn't know exactly what they tasted like unless you actually picked it up and ate it, but you would have a heads-up as to what's awaiting you inside that luscious, sweet morsel.  Now that I've made myself hungry, I will finish my thought about life.  If we had a roadmap to our life, one that had some hints to where we are going, would we enjoy it more?  In my "work," and I use that term loosely because what I do is never a chore, my passion is to help others re-member their path and their connection to the divine.  I used to do that through readings, but am now called to help others see the roadmap for themselves, to teach them to read the signs that mark their path.  We don't always read the signs even if we see them, but we have a choice, free will, to decide how we want to proceed.  Do we eat the chocolate, or go for a different flavor?  Do we skip them all together and eat cake instead?  So life may be like a box of chocolates, but if we know what we are looking for, we may just know what we're going to get.
