If you asked people this question

“What’s the one thing you would want, if you were lost somewhere?”

It’s quite likely most people will respond

“A map will be all that I need.”


It’s the wrong answer.

A map won’t help, because you don’t know where you are on the map.

Same is true for life too.

When lost, most of us crave for a map.

A diagram of which road leads to where.

We rarely stop to realize that in the absence of our own location on the map, the map is just a useless item.

What might help, is to retrace our steps. To try and go back where we can came from. Our fundamentals. The core. The origin. The point that might explain it all.

Because no matter how lost we are, we always know where we came from.
