Someone once asked Carl Jung, "Could you please tell me the shortest path to my life's goal?" Without any hesitation, Jung replied, "The detour." We've heard of happy accidents and fortunate fias-coes. Someone once said how surprised he always is that so much good comes into his life when he is looking the other way. We tend to think of our life in terms of a straight, steady progression from good to good, but it's usually much more of a zig-zag. Instead of seeing our growth only from a linear sequence of goals achieved, we can also see it organically: as a flower unfolds from the center outwards, we too may be unfolding in a multi-foliate way. We can trust that at the point we seem most lost or unsettled, we may be reaching a good beyond our imagining.
