Oranges are Not the Only Fruit

There’s so much out there isn’t there? It’s overwhelming sometimes, just where do you go find what you want? First: know what you want. You can be so easily side-tracked, I know I can be, you step out looking to buy oranges but there you are looking at apples. They’re both round, ish, right? But you went in for oranges, what’s apples got to do with it?

 Staying focused on what you’re truly looking for, or what you’re truly offering perhaps; it takes discipline. Some would argue that whilst you’re looking for oranges you may come across a tempting apple that’s more appealing and what you wanted all along; come, taste my shiny apple.

 The world of spirituality is a full bowl, oranges are not the only fruit, but the danger is you move from one to the other and end up with fruit salad, which isn’t so bad but it’s not the purity of that orange you set out to sample. You have time to shop around, you can do whatever you want, but until you’ve properly tasted that orange you won’t know if it’s for you or worse still, you’ll buy it and leave it in the bowl to rot.
