Concept Maps of Life

Sharing great read by Reena.

Reena Saxena

The book title that inspired this is “The Road Less Travelled” by M. Scott Peck.



Taking a particular road, is always a deliberate choice.

The busiest highways of life are so densely populated, due to the perceived security of being in known territory. But known to whom? The travellers are stepping on that ground for the first time. They trust the experience of others who have preceded them. We seek traffic updates from people who are moving ahead of us, or from a GPRS/satellites/drones watching the road from above.

Here, we operate with different mind-sets:

  1. Follower

One is to believe that the experience of people in the close vicinity benefits us. This is what we do, when we accept guidance from others with gratitude, or conform to the norms laid down by our ancestors or mentors.

2. Student

Another is to believe in an entity, which is detached from…

      • Hey Eugenia,

        ‘All’ is also all good here in all ways. It seems we share all the good in all ways and in all ways share all the good 🙂

        Today has been a busy few hours…I had a priest make attempt at slaughtering a kidnapping grotesque, gave a name to a Villanovan Queen, walked an endless road less travelled, froze at the wild call of foxes, and shared a brief moment with an all-knowing gargoyle. A typical writers day don’t you think? 🙂

        And you Eugenia, how has your quill fluttered this day?

        Namaste 🙂

      • Well, you are quite busy! I haven’t fluttered my quill yet, but I’m getting ready to spill some ink. 😉

      • What a ingenious retort 😀 I couldn’t better it by way of a witty come back. Happy writing Eugenia 🙂

        Spill, spell, linger or dwell,
        But amuse the muse until the pot runs dry!
        Dip the tip and feel your feather quiver,
        Drawing deep breathe from an inky river.
        I always try to stay busy, really I do,
        It’s something that I’ve got used to.
        You see I made a choice long ago
        A choice to happily forgo Television.
        In its wake the day extends.
        Indeed the hours never seem to end.
        And so I dilly and dally and flap and flutter
        And fly about enjoying the flitter
        of fleet and fleeting flight
        through pressed words and writer’s dreams on WP

        Take care, have a blessed weekend.

        Namaste 🙂

  2. This book by Peck has always stuck with us. He nails it in “The Road Less Traveled” and is fundamental to anyone wanting to have a blessed relationship. Great post.
