Lost in the fog

Are you lost in the fog? I've been there literally, figuratively and even spiritually. More than once.

There is guidance available but if it is not onboard or onboard but disconnected (or worse yet, ignored) then expect to get lost.

Visual navigation is fairly straightforward. You look, you see and you point yourself in the direction you want to go. But when fog settles in you can't see. And the water itself is moving with the tides and currents. And there are others out there ~ some smaller but some much larger. Some going fast and some going slow. Some aware of your presence and some not... and some aware but expecting you to get out of their way.

This is a metaphor for your life. You don't know what tomorrow holds. You are only fooling yourself if you think that you can visually navigate to a safe harbor without the proper navigation.

There is guidance available. Is it onboard? Is it connected? Are you heeding it?
