“Put on your horse blinders and walk your path.” A guide said this to me many years ago as a way of saying, don’t get distracted. There are so many kinds of distractions, other people’s emotions and behaviors, media, a tremendous amount to read, watch, and do. Sometimes a lot of choice can be overwhelming and make us scattered.
Some distractions are inner distractions, such as fear, guilt, or uncertainty. There is only so much time in a day and distractions from our purpose can eat up our time. I find that letting go of attachments and focusing out of the third eye, while asking “What are my priorities today?” – helps me to stay on course.
