Look forward. Not behind. Faster. Don’t let fear or doubt overtake you, another voice instructs.Only once you are safely driving in your new direction, coasting along this roadway, can you safely reassess or redefine your position.
Maimonides instructs us to take the middle, golden path on life’s journey. Proceed with deliberation, at a moderate pace, keeping an eye on all that’s around us. But when making an instrumental change in our lives, when changing directions, or when working on uprooting an ingrained habit, tendency or addiction, Maimonides advises us to go to the opposite extreme. Jump right in, without looking back, at the fastest pace possible. Only once we’re steadily on our way can we ease up on our tenacious hold.
You’ve already determined your destination. You’ve chosen your path. Now, push right down on the gas pedal, edge your way in, and enjoy your new journey.
