Define “astray”, please


Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really
love. It will not lead you astray. – Rumi

This sentiment has popped up frequently over the last several years. Do
what you love, love what you do. What’s your dharma, your purpose for
being here? What is your true calling? Find your passion!

My problem has been that I am serially drawn to a variety of true
loves. Or… is it REALLY a problem? Conventionally speaking, I guess
so. But I’ve not been living conventionally. I’ve been answering the
"strange pull", and it leads in multiple directions. I am wondering if
this REALLY constitutes "astray".

By the way, I took that picture. I kind of adore my new camera – one of
my serial loves 😀
