Sometimes it can be irritating to hear the same metaphors repeated, and related to book titles and so on. This one though seems to make too much sense!
|Right seat, right bus, right time? Enjoy your ride|
A few years ago I literally found myself in the right seat on a plane going to my destination but it was the wrong plane, mine was an hour later. So this tells me something about timing and readiness and patience.
Often we can notice others who seem unhappy, uninspired, disinterested and downright negative. Often these people need permission to move out of the seat, off the bus, and to do something completely different. They have spent too long in an uncomfortable seat (yes the metaphors and analogies are being exercised without restraint but doesn't it make things so clear!).
In my second year in the Marist seminary the rector asked me if I wanted to be there, and I was relieved that he asked because I did not. It is not always possible to jump or shift for economic reasons and a few others I am sure, but the mere acknowledgement is a powerful step in creating a more enjoyable atmosphere.
It behoves us to examine our motivation, our energy and passion, and our commitment to a cause or the cause we find ourselves in and question it. It makes a big difference to our lives and those we led and work with or live with and life is too precisions to take away our own or another's sense of purpose or contribution.
Listen, learn and check the seat you are in and the bus you are on is comfortable, at the right time and heading in the direction you want to go.
Enjoy your ride
